from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,
Joe Sakic seems to have made up his mind that he wants to work for the Avalanche in a management capacity. The questions are when and in what role.
When it happens, Sakic isn’t expecting any big-timer treatment. He expects to pay his dues.
“You can’t just jump in and start at the top. I would go in knowing I’d have to learn all parts of the business for a few years,” said Sakic, the Avs’ all-time leading scorer who retired last summer.
Sakic, who turns 41 next month, spent his first year of retirement taking it easy with his family and coaching his sons’ hockey teams part-time. He said he has not talked with the Avs about a management job and probably won’t for at least a couple more weeks.
