Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,
At this point to the season, I think it’s become clear what one remaining weakness of the Avalanche is, and one that needs to be addressed if it wants any shot at making and/or going deep into the playoffs: the power play.
Specifically, the Burgundy and Blue lack a point man with great PP quarterback abilities, one with a huge slap shot that makes the D back off and creates more garbage rebound goals for the forwards in front….
This is why I think the Avs should make a serious pitch for Souray, the Edmonton veteran. Yes, I know Souray is having a bad year and has had some off-ice drama as well. I know he’s 33 and a bit slow and doesn’t make a great pass out of his own zone. But I do know he still has one of the most feared slap shots in the game, and he can really play a mean, physical game down low.
