Colorado Avalanche Weekend Round-Up

Every Sunday Mile High Sticking will bring to you the Colorado Avalanche Weekend Round-Up, which is a collection of Avalanche news from all over the interweb. Since it’s the off-season, news is pretty limited, but we tried.

*Good news for Corey Sarich, who is “up and moving” following his cycling accident that left him with five broken vertebrae. I know he’s hoping to continue his NHL career, but this accident, combined with his age and decline in play makes his options limited. That said, if the Toronto Maple Leafs are willing to pay $3 million a year to Stephane Robidas, I’m sure some team would be willing to pay Sarich. – Pro Hockey Talk

*The latest episode of Hockey Talk with Adrian Dater features him and Ryan Boudling discussing the Ryan O’Reilly deal. – Denver Post

*Adam Gretz takes a great look at the Quebec Nordiques, how they laid the foundation for the Avalanche’s success starting in the late 90’s, and what might’ve happened if they never moved to Colorado. Quebec still deserves a hockey team and hopefully they get one within the next ten years. – SB Nation

*Better late than never as Angélique C. Murray reviews what the Avs did in the 2014 NHL Draft. – Mile High Hockey

*The great folks at Eurolanche got a chance to talk to Jesse Winchester. I really liked this signing by the Avs and hope he works out as the fourth line guy. – Eurolanche

*If you don’t feel like listening to Ryan Boulding on Dater’s podcast, you can read his thoughts about the O’Reilly situation instead. – Mile High Sports

*Need to know what’s going on with Avalanche prospects, here’s an update list of who is playing where next season. – Colorado Avalanche Prospects

*Chris Bigras and Will Butcher are headed to World Junior’s Development camp. They’re both essential locks for their teams. – Colorado Avalanche
