from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
Colorado is another interesting one, considering the Avalanche are tremendous at keeping secrets. Other teams, however, believe changes are possible, but how high will they go? Prospective coaches may be nervous about going there now if a full-on regime change is to occur this summer.
As one executive put it to me: who is (or will be) calling the shots in Denver? Will it be Greg Sherman, Pierre Lacroix or Eric Lacroix? Or will it be Joe Sakic or even Patrick Roy? (There are people who assume that if he ever wanted the job, he could have it.) Or, someone else? No one really knows.
On Sakic: It doesn’t sound like he would want to be a GM anytime soon. Word is that he recognizes this is not a position for learning on the job. If such a move is in his future, it will come after an apprenticeship.
