Good move, easily better than Dries/Bourque/Nieto(right now)/Kamenev(bottom 6 version) right now.
Didn't expect that. Yay?
So potential lines...
I think him and Kamenev could be good for each other.
Interesting, surprised they called up Dries then put in a claim on a player. With Ghetto skating and getting closer, I wonder if Dries goes back down or if Kamenev hasn't shown them enough.
As I said the other day, he is a better player than Bourque, Nieto, Kamenev (currently at least), Dries, but I'm not sure he is a better fit.
21 points in 35 games a few years ago with Columbus. Looks to have potential.
They'll probably want Dano to get a couple practices in with the team to know what they have before putting him the lineup.
Someone has to score on poor teams. That was more of a mirage than something that should be expected.
A factoid that might be interesting only to me, he was born in Eisenstadt in Austria, a town where the majority of inhabitants originates from Croatia.
Always nice to have a new toy
Even more so when they have a name that's fun to say!
Former Blue Jacket: Check.
Well, he checks all the boxes.
Just kidding, that bottom-6 rotation could use another option right now.
When Wilson scores a goal they play the Tom Hanks "WILLLLLLSOOOOONNNNN" sound clip. I demand they keep this trend going and play "Book em Danno" from Hawaii 5-0 after he scores.
A Slovak player, finally.
Well we could use some extra options on the bottom 6 so I'm kewl with it.
I like it. I like it a lot.
Bednar coached him before. Pretty much a guarantee as soon as he was waived.
Puts the Avs at 48 contracts.
I loved Dano in his draft year. Solid talent that just hasn't established himself (or is a tweener). The question is has he not gotten a chance being on two deep teams, or is he just not good enough. I'd love to see him on a line next to Soda.
I liked the guy 4 years ago
We seem to have a good track record for waiver pick ups so I'm optimistic about him.
I'd put him on Soda's wing and scratch Gork or Nieto
Small, fast, and gritty. Sounds like an Avs player all right. I think the team has some serious depth concerns up front so this is a wise move.
Ya, not big worries. We wont bring back some of these one year deals. Guys like Gertsson wont make it back next year
I quite like Dano and he provide us with some NHL depth we've been lacking in the early goings, but don't be too fooled by him. He's a hard worker, what I call reliable two-way ability, and is physically engaging. However, he tends to get lost on the ice at times and doesn't really have any amazing offencive ability - not really one standout quality. Should be given more of a chance with our club though.
Would like the lines to look like...
Landeskog - MacKinnon - Rantanen
Kerfoot - Jost - Andrighetto (Offencive zone draws)
Dano - Soderberg - Wilson (Defencive zone draws)
Calvert - Compher - Whoever
I was gonna say. Definitely not an Austrian name.
I’m still so disappointed with the way his career has gone; but there was once a good top 6er there. Really hope he can finally put it all together for us.
