    Knew this was coming when they said Kroenke was going on the trip.

    but, but, the Avs clearly wont spend money.

    Glad that Hunwick has a slight chance to get picked up, and that neither Holden nor Guenin lose out on their chance with the big club yet.

    Liked him but his time here was over as soon as he was put on waivers once Roy was named HC

    Whoa. I'm shocked. I thought it would be a 2 way guy headed down. I guess kroenke really is willing to spend.

    Liles vs Hunwick duel in AHL!

    There is probably a bigger chance of Holden being claimed, with his low cap hit. Teams don't mind plugging a hole with a cheap plug. Avs did it with Palushaj and Cliche.

    This is the right decision. Both Guenin and Holden looked better in camp.

    It'll be nice to have our "full" defense now with Wilson back and it's re-assuring to have both Guenin (who we now know can play at the NHL level) and Holden (who also looks pretty serviceable).

    By all accounts Hunwick had a bad camp and Roy wants his defenders, if they aren't all that good, to make safe decisions in our zone and with the puck.

    That's not Hunwick. He wanders in our zone and he hasn't seen a shin pad he didn't want to launch a puck into. He's not a very good puck possession guy. Great skater, great attitude but I think we and Roy are more comfortable with a very limited guy like Guenin over him.

    I'm interested in what this means for Lake Erie. They currently have 8 defensemen on the team. Elliott, Beaupre, Siemens, Stollery, and Lauridsen have played all 3 games so they are likely safe. Tam has played 2 games and Moffie one. Maggio has yet to play, but was the enforcer last year and played well in that role. So do they send Moffie and Tam down to Denver to get some games, or keep everybody up and just have 3 defensemen sit out every night?

    Though looking at the lineup, Lake Erie could have a very soild AHL defense with Hunwick.

    Hunwick-Elliott (taking Stollery's spot from the last game I saw)
    Siemens-Stollery
    Lauridsen-Beaupre

    Elliott hasn't been paired with Siemens in LE?

    Not that I have seen, but it was only one game. Siemens was with Beaupre.

    Guys, guys. Don't be ridiculous, Hunwick won't be going to Lake Erie.









    Sacco is going to claim him for the Sabres :sarcasm:

    Shouldn't surprise anyone. This move epitomizes the shift away from the Sacco era.

    So what is the plan with Nick Holden?

    With as bad as their defense has been, I wouldn't put it past them.

    Totally possible. If Sabres want guaranteed top-2 pick, Hunwick will do it. :yo:

    I think Siemens and Elliott played together in the first game, or at least for part of it.

    Anyway, I'm glad to see this move. It makes the most sense for a competitive team and shows the Avs don't make decisions based on saving money. I'm also glad for the message it gives Holden that he didn't get his shot yet but the Avs want him enough to make this move. It couldn't have helped Hunwick's case that the last impression Roy had was him getting beat by the giant Russian I'm not going to try and spell on my phone.

    So they had Elliott-Stollery and Siemens-Beaupre. That reeks of Sacco D-pairs.

    How did 2 guys in Zanon and Hunwick who played the most minutes last season for us NOT have NHL jobs?
