Tonight is the Avs final preseason game (aka the final non-televised Avalanche game of the season). Budaj got the start. The NHL stats are screwy again (the have 6 Avalanche forwards starting a shift 39 seconds into the game), but I think I've got it sorted out:
- Sakic, Wolski, Tucker
- Stastny, Hejduk, Smyth
- Willsie, Arnason, McCormick
- Guite, Laperriere, McLeod
- Foote, Clark
- Salei, Leopold
- Hannan, Tjarnqvist
Foote (along with Lappy) is wearing the A; I think it's safe to assume he'll be the guy to inherit Andrew Brunette's assistant captaincy.
No Ledin tonight - is that a good sign or a bad sign for his chances?
UPDATE: here's the shift chart for tonight's game
