Avalanche Paint Drying Thread, Day 2

It will be hard to top the excitement of day one, but we'll be here just the same.

I'm a tad conflicted. I firmly believe that the Colorado Tumbleweeds need to add some talent. But there's not a ton of names coming off the board so far that I'm really upset at missing out on. Michalek and Foster are probably the two most notable. Maybe Volchenkov, given his relatively favorable cap number ($4.25). Tallinder too. There's still people out there who can improve the team. Willie Mitchell, Andy Sutton, that Kovalchuk fella. The question is whether GM Greg Sherman is willing - or allowed - to pull the trigger.
