Darcy Tucker borrowed his metaphor from baseball.

The Avalanche winger was talking Tuesday morning about how he and goalie Andrew Raycroft are enjoying themselves in their initial days with Colorado, a few months after the Toronto Maple Leafs bought out their contracts.

"Andrew and I feel like we're in the 'Field of Dreams,' " Tucker said after the Avalanche's practice. "We walked out of the cornfield and into something great.

"We're adjusting really well and the guys have been great with us. The guys on this team have been really refreshing. We've got a good mix of younger guys who make you feel young, plus a nice mix of older guys you can actually relate to some-times."

I can't say I am expecting big things from either, but I am definitely expecting production. Hoping they will be pleasant surprises
