I for one am thoroughly impressed by what Steve Yzerman has done over the past couple of hours...

- Mezsaroz contract successfully dumped for a 2nd rounder
- St Louis extended at fair cap hit (5ish)
- Dan Ellis - a great candidate to be a franchise goalie

I can't wait to see what else he does. The roster still has a lot of openings.

I agree. This guy has been invisible. If only he'd score 3-4 goals within a 5 minute span. :yowza: :siren: :siren: :siren: :siren: :siren: :siren:

I'm wondering what people around here think of the Avs nowadays.

The rivalry is very dead and the only guys they have remaining from it are Foote (will possibly retire after this season) and Hejduk (who wasn't a big part of the rivalry anyway).

I used to loathe the Avs pretty hard, but I can't help but find this rookie loaded team to be exciting and fun to watch. Granted they still have a lot to prove (especially on defense), but they also have a lot of room to grow into being a powerhouse within a couple years. I'm glad the goon squad of the 90's is gone, because I think it would be a real shame to hate a team this good. Coincidentally, I think Matt Duchene may end up being one of my favorite non-Red Wings in the league. I can't wait to see what this kid can do with a little more size and experience, because he looks unstoppable on most nights as it is right now.

So... are average Wings fans Avs haters for life as a result of one of the greatest NHL rivalries, or can a roster full of new faces and a different style help you ignore the jersey they wear? I can't be the only one enjoying watching these guys play.
