Today's interesting Avalanche tidbits:

Two articles on Darcy Tucker and how he's going to work really, really hard to help his new team.  Has there ever, in the history of NHL free agency, been a free agent who signed a contract with a new team but then told the press he wasn't interested in contributing to that team?  Ever?  What is the point of these articles?

Also, Adrian Dater posted a blog entry called "A Talk With Theodore's Agent," but it's really just one quote from Don Meehan about the Theodore non-signing.  Oh, but he does offer confirmation that hockey agents pull down 1-2% commission on their deals.  Considering nobody in the NHL makes more than $10 million a year, I'd rather be in baseball.

This is an open thread.  Get busy typing or get busy dying.
