I'm not here to be a another awesome sports pornographer but I was stoked, excited, nay!; jumping around like a kid to the point of being vomitous, about the Avalanche news today. It has been reported that Liles and Foote are on the roster. Sakic is unknown at this time.
I'm ok with this so far, but the Avs HAVE to shake things up. I was hopeful that they would bring in BRAND new blood for head coach, but that's not gonna be the case (obviously). My expectations are that the "old style" coaching will remain. I believe we'll see the classic and woefully unorganized dump and chase as years previous. In fact, I believe that with all of the GD stats in hockey that someone needs to be tracking the D&C's to see just how rediculous this "offensive" move can be (save line changes). Bad goaltender coaching and play (since they're not going anywhere) will continue to plague the Avs. I have always had a postive opinion regarding the defensemen which is why I'm stoked about Liles and Foote, of course. Everything else is gonna be a crap shoot. That's my (disgruntled) prediction.
And what the hell is wrong when the USA's hockey league when it is predominantly outta towners; those damn foreigners coming over to steal our jobs? Why don't they hire me and put me on point? Seriously, go count the the number of USA born citizens on the roster. No, seriously, go do it...now! Is this similar to some well known souther migrant workers who come for harvesting and such? Are the Canadiens only willing to play hockey and not pick up another trade like, circuit board assembly or paper mills?
And just to make sure that I -=really=- get in the most ((obsurd)) amount of (parantheses) I thought I'd randomly add a couple so you could see just how well my summer school in '91 paid off so that I didn't have to take Senior HS English during the normal school year(!).
Well, that's my terrible post for this morning. I'm supposed to be working on a router, so I'll go get that done and then head home. Have a swell free agency week everyone!
