Goodbye Colorado

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Vail Daily,

Goodbye, Adam Foote. Goodbye, Peter Forsberg. Goodbye to elite status in the NHL, Colorado Avalanche. The new $39-million salary cap creamed the players and it's blasted the Avs, an added bonus. Yes, oh faithful Avs fan - is there such a thing; we'll find out this year - you say you still have Joe Sakic, Rob Blake, Milan Hejduk and Alex Tanguay. It doesn't matter. Foote was the most underrated cog in the Avs' machine and Forsberg, well, there's a reason he's Peter the Great. The bottom line is that the Avs are going to be lucky to finish third in the Northwest Division and could well be watching the playoffs on TV come April.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Sports Illustrated,

"I think I fit well in L.A. I'm an L.A. kind of guy," said Roenick. "I really think the team [GM Dave Taylor] has put together is going to be a force to be reckoned with. I can see they're trying to do a lot of good things in Anaheim also," Roenick said. "Getting [Scott] Niedermayer is a big push for them. But I still think we'll kick their butts next year." "It's a little bit like Showtime, with what the Lakers used to have," said an optimistic Luc Robitaille.

Any Free Agents Left

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via the Globe and Mail, So who's left? The Big Three are all gone after Scott Niedermayer left the NHL's unrestricted free-agent market and joined his brother in Anaheim on Thursday. Peter Forsberg and Markus Naslund signed the day before, leaving the 2005 free-agent class deprived off its three biggest names. Even the next level of star players is mostly gone, centre Alexei Zhamnov joining Boston on Thursday, while winger Martin Lapointe went to Chicago and defenceman Brian Rafalski decided to stay in New Jersey. For teams such as Washington, Minnesota and Toronto that have yet to dip into the market, there's not much left on the top rack.
