Nice little bridge deal.

Non-story. Excellent bridge contract.

I would much prefer this organization to tie up promising young talent that is somewhat proven, but not guaranteed, long-term; Barrie in my opinion fits this mold. Unfortunately they disagree.

The stance is certainly understandable but there's a certain amount of risk-taking necessary for success that they are very averse to.

If one of Bigras or Siemans make the team, you'd think they'd be getting a lot of the easy comp and O-zone starts to boost their confidence, while Barrie would have to log tougher minutes. Ideally, Barrie would get the softest minutes Colorado has since he can't shut down impact players but is hella good at putting biscuits in baskets. Such an ideal scenario quickly falls flat on its face because Roy will badly need to shelter dmen who play like total turds, including but not limited to Wilson, Stuart, and Guenin.

I have high hopes for Zach Redmond being a really strong pickup to help out the defense. I'm not concerned about the right side. The left side...quite concerned.

Good contract for the Avs, and Barrie still has to prove more to get the long term deal.

I believe it has to do with his agent Meehan being busy with Brad Richards, then RoR, then Subban. Sprinkle in some Del Zotto and he was fairly busy throughout the summer.
Pretty sure the one RFA which wasn't going to arbitration was low on the priority.

Don't think either Bigras or Siemens makes the team this season. They have lots of NHL contracts on the blue line, and 3 sizable ones go away after this upcoming season - Hejda, Wilson, Stuart. Perfect time for those two guys to suddenly be ready.

Guenin was pretty much a turd, this side of the penalty kill. When he didn't have to move, he was just OK. If Elliott can't beat out his sorry ass, he's not a real prospect anymore. I think Wilson is done. I also don't get why Roy is so erect about Holden, but whatever - he's going to be on the roster for sure.

My best guess is that Redmond is the 6th guy who makes the regular roster.

And btw, I don't believe Stuart is going to be as bad as a lot of Avs fans do. I think he'll be solid, much like Hejda.
