Crazy money. Clearly Colorado is trying to get some grown men on their team, with Iginla and Stuart. Give their youngsters some role models.

Cool. Good for him. Maybe the Avs get there in his third year.

These numbers are crazy. The only one that I’ve seen really worth it is the Boyle figure but it seems he realllllly wanted to play in NY. I’m glad we aren’t throwing our money away. For once I agree with Kenny. These teams can suffer with these big contracts.

I’d say Ehrhoff was a steal.

I’d happily take Ehrhoff for $4MM at 1 year. Every day and twice on Sunday.

Avs competing with the Blues to improve. I like what both teams have done since season ended but especially the Avs.
Going be weird seeing Iggy change sweaters again.

The West is going to be seriously good next year. Colorado and St. Louis just made themselves competitors… only real need for both teams is solid goaltending. Colorado might have one. St. Louis needs one.

I think Iggy is more interested in maximizing his last few years than winning a cup. I don’t see the Avs winning a cup anytime soon. Johnson is not the stud D man upon which championships are won.

I don’t know. I think Colorado will make a run in the next 3 years. Not a 100% prediction, but they have the pieces.
