What are your expectations for the Avs, with Sakic and without?

With Sakic I think it will be the same as last year, a few points from winning the division or a few points from missing the playoffs. About 90-95 points.

Without Sakic I think it will be pretty much the same. About 87-92 points.

With Sakic they have 97 points without 87.

Yeah, I really don't even see us getting past the first round this year unless whoever the starting goalie is stands on his head like theo did last year.

I think our defense is going to be very good and now if you nail us with a hit we'll knock you even harder. (enter Darcy Tucker, Per Ledin along with Lappy)

our offense is going to be very good. Smyth will have a better year,Svatos will be healthy,Statsny will be his usuall self,Darcy will help on the power play.

And I believe our goal tending is not going to be as bad as some have made it out to be. Hackett will have a big impact on Raycroft and turn him around, Boods has proven to be a very good tender.

with that being said, I believe winning this division is very attainable and should be the goal for the team this season.

Svatos and Wolski will come to the forefront and maybe get some recognition they deserve.
