Good morning sports fans. Teams have been negotiating with the great unwanted from others’ rosters for nearly a week now, at noon we see all the hard work pay off.
The Avs one and only large need is a backup (?) goaltender now that Calvin’s hanging with the ghosts of the Rat Pack. As reported by BSN last night, it appears that Jonathan Bernier will be in burgundy & blue this coming season. Good choice, and it definitely could be worse.
Aside from that, we could use some depth. I’m looking for perhaps a solid 3rd pair D/PK specialist and some bottom-6 center depth that can fit into #youngerfaster. The Rampage always need help, should be interesting to see what the staff comes up with for AHL depth. They also need a goalie. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see nothing besides Bernier with the rest of the spots slated to be filled by camp invites and some crafty use of the Avs #1 spot in the waiver line for at least the first several weeks of the season.
Grab some Pepto-Bismol and prepare yourself for an afternoon of hideous & crippling mistakes (by other teams for a change).
