The Edmonton Journal thinks that Hurberdeau might be a good fight with the Avs.

Saint John Sea Dogs Memorial Cup playoff MVP Jonathan Huberdeau played on the left wing 95 per cent of the time this season. NHL teams are aware that Huberdeau, a top-four pick, can play middle or wing. This is a plus for the Colorado Avalanche, who pick second because they have Matt Duchene and Paul Stastny locked into the middle.

 

Kinda interesting, two out of four German players currently in the NHL are in the Finals.

For any hockey player, getting to the Stanley Cup Final is a big deal.

For Christian Ehrhoff being on the verge of attaining the biggest accomplishment of his professional career has yet another layer to it.

"There's going to be a second German Stanley Cup champion after Uwe Krupp and that's going to be very special for German hockey," said Ehrhoff, a native of Moers, Germany.

"Hopefully, it's going to be me."

 

I'm liking Landeskog's stats and attitude.
Landeskog never appeared fatigued or bothered by any of the tests on Friday at the Toronto Congress Centre. He produced 33 push-ups, well above last year's average (26.1). He also bench-pressed 150 pounds 11 times, besting last year's 10.7 average.

Former Avalanche member, Cam Russell, has made it to the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame.

Russell played 440 games for the Chicago Blackhawks and Colorado Avalanche before injuries forced him into early retirement in 1999. He also added some humour to the day when he talked about how his parents "never once scolded me, they never told me in the car ‘You should’ve done this or you didn’t do this right.’ I’m sure my sons are sitting there thinking ‘Dad, why couldn’t you be more like that.’

"But life’s about learning and improving and one day I’d like to be as good a person as my dad and both my parents were."
