from the Rocky Mountain News,
“I think everybody is excited,” general manager Francois Giguere said Thursday. “The players I’ve talked to are energized. I think everybody wants to prove that this team is closer to being the team that we saw in the last 20 or so games last year.”
Giguere indicated he didn’t anticipate any more signings. That would seem to rule out the possibility of bringing back a free agent like Peter Forsberg, who underwent hernia surgery this week and hasn’t said whether he will play in the NHL in 2007-08.
“That doesn’t mean you don’t revisit things moving forward,” Giguere said. “But right now we like the roster and the competition with some of the new guys. We want to give them a chance to have a realistic shot to compete for some jobs.”
One of the more intriguing story lines will involve the competition between goalies Peter Budaj and Jose Theodore.
