Months after undergoing back surgery and also suffering three broken fingers and tendon damage in a losing faceoff with a snowblower, Avalanche captain Joe Sakic has started skating again….

This all begs the question: What the heck for?...
The only reason for him to try to play again this season, even if it’s only the back-to-back home games against St. Louis and Vancouver in the final weekend, on April 11 and 12, is to wave goodbye.
