    On a related note, there was a fan here who used to always spell Makar's name "Maker". Damn..it was driving me crazy. "Hanifan" is up there on that list as well.

    Aves fans hate it when posters spell names and abbreviations incorrectly.

    It will be better when we draft Tag Bertuzzi. Easy to remember that name.

    Even though AIC is this years version of WJC Denmark as a college programme, you like to see him commandeer a game like that. That hit in particular was freakin' nice to witness and made them run around the zone defencively.

    I’ve seen three different reports on how many games he has to play this year to require protection. One said 40 games (Athletic), one said 9 games (BSN), and one said a single game (Hench).

    At this point I have no idea but I also think it doesn’t matter because Sakic won’t be able to resist.

    If there is one GM that can resist it's Sakic...and he will.

    He does indeed. If I thought he was the difference between winning a round or two and a 1st round exit then maybe that’s a price you have to pay, but with the Preds or Jets waiting for us, there’s no need to tie our hands on a Makar or Kaut. Bring them in over the summer and aim to start making noise next from next season until the cap forces a reset.

    I don’t know why, but “Hanifan” always makes me chuckle

    I can see Makar signing an ATO contract with the Eagles once he is done at UMass to finish the season and to prepare him for next year camp.

    I see Av's sometimes and it always grinds my gears for some reason.
    Any mistake switching up vowels on last names is the worst. Like, pay some damn attention.

    I don't like seeing AVS, either.

    If Holland is still in charge I bet the Red Wings late 1st they get for a rental gets used on Tagbert.

    He’s got a weird bias for that family.

    Good news with Makar is the Frozen Four is April 11th-13th.

    His season might finish later than the Avs.

    Which would make him Protected from an expansion draft, right?

    Then he'll be 'tagged' for an 8 year career in the ECHL. It's our way of giving back to the league.

    Correct. If he doesn’t play for us at all this season then he is definitely safe.

    Where the uncertainty comes in is whether he’d need to play at all this season or if there is a number of games he could play this season before he’d need to be protected.

    So if he just doesn’t sign an ELC for this season at all, then he’s definitely safe. No matter how the NHL decides the exact cutoff.

    I really think its the right way to go IMO, but would be nice to get a little reading on his NHL capabilities. Just not at the expense of potentially loosing him, I see his floor as something like Girard.

    Even if they don't make the frozen four, regionals are March 29-31. That's only a week before the Avs regular season ends, they'd have to rush just to get him in a few games at that point. Who knows about playoffs though.
