After some lengthy negotiations, right winger Marek Svatos has signed a one-year deal with the Avalanche. Reports are that the deal is for $1.05 million. On the signing, Avs GM Francois Giguere said: "Along with Alex Ovechkin, Dion Phaneuf and Sidney Crosby, Svatos was a part of the outstanding and exciting new brand of NHL players that made their debut last year." Now, I don't want to be a hater here, as I think Svatos is a special young player. But somehow when I read that list, a certain Sesame Street song pops up in my head. Great guy, glad they got him signed...but not like the others. Sorry.
