Avalanche Plan

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post,
In 13 days, the Avalanche, Hurricanes, Oilers and 27 other NHL franchises will be able to go after free agents. With the salary cap increasing from $39 million to about $43 million, teams will have more breathing room - and, perhaps, increased margin for error. But past mistakes still can be costly. The Avalanche doesn't have to be as concerned with the salaries it will pay Pierre Turgeon, Patrice Brisebois and Brad May as the fact that sticking with them would take up three roster spots and lessen flexibility elsewhere.
