    Well, wait until they sign mikko and then we can talk. We have signed a whole bunch of people lately. Some unexpected. A 7 year for Girard for ex. Do not tell me you saw that coming. or the signing today of Greer.

    Dude, when they sign Mikko they're going to be close to the cap limit...the floor is the minimum and reserved for teams like Buffalo. No, I didn't see a seven year contract coming for Girard and while I like them locking him up for that long I don't think he's worth $5m per. I don't think that's a bargain at all. Sorry.

    If he develops anything close to makar or Timmons that is an amazing deal. And he was not too far off of that when he was playing for us. We were below the floor. We did have the most cap space of any team in the NHL, by a large margin.

    Our nucleus is intact and we don't have to worry about keeping our studs like the leafs. This is like the ultimate play.

    Connor Timmins hasn't played a single NHL game, so he's far from being developed in to anything. The Avs WILL have to worry about keeping their "core" in-tact sooner than later. Just the way it works. The Avs are, by my rough math, currently about $11M from the top of the cap. That means they'll be squeezing their buttcheeks. Fortunately for them, the game-day salary cap rules are in play in the NHL and some of these two-way contracts for guys like Greer, Dries, Kamanev, etc. won't count toward the cap if they aren't playing. Hockey has more of a "soft cap" than anything else.

    Default Avalanche’s Nathan MacKinnon Buys Union Station Penthouse

    DENVER (CBS4) – The star of Colorado’s professional hockey scene has obtained a lofty downtown living space within walking distance of the home team’s ice.

    Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon paid $3.2 million this week to secure a penthouse on the top floor of the Coloradan, a newly completed condo tower tower adjacent to Union Station, according to BusinessDen.com.

    MacKinnon’s is the last of the Coloradan’s seven penthouse suites. The others sold for prices between $1.6 million and $3.35 million. The building’s location is five blocks from the Pepsi Center, home to the Avalanche and the Denver Nuggets.
