Roenick Eats His Words

From Jeremy Roenick’s first blog at NHL.com:

I did not know what to expect from the Colorado Avalanche in the beginning of the year, especially after the way they finished last season. They had an atrocious second half of the season. I felt bad for coach Joe Sacco, who is a very good friend of mine, and gave his team zero chance to make the playoffs at the beginning of this season.

Oh boy, did I make a big mistake. No team has played harder for their coach, and played within a system and a structure, as well as the Colorado Avalanche have in the first two weeks of the season. With the addition of Semyon Varlamov to give them a solid net presence, it’s very impressive to see a whole team buying into the coach’s mentality.

I’m glad they’re making me eat my words.
