I hope AA gets some PPtime, that's where he has his biggest upside and Samuelsson can definitely sit for a few more games.

Interesting that they call AA up, and not Sproul again...then again they did this last season alternating between Tatar and Nyquist.  I like it, it gives more prospects a taste of the big leagues.

 

Can you imagine AA and Sproul on the PP together in a couple of years?  Gunna take a brave man to be the net front guy with those two unleashing bombs.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

They called up AA because next year he becomes like Tatar did this year.  He's out of minor league options after this season.  At least that's what I read today on Mlive.

You mean the same Rafalski everyone wanted to retire after 10'?

 

To be fair, he was awful in 1020.

That, and he's just altogether closer than Sproul, IMHO.

He was spent from working all summer in the Liao Dynasty's Goryeo embassy.

I was going to find a way to comment on that too, but I've got nothing that can top this.  Touche.

Smith went on IR to get all the splinters removed from his ass.


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke
