Buying the Stanley Cup

by john on October 20, 2003

I found out just yesterday that the Colorado Avalanche added Paul Kariya and Teemu Salanne to their roster this year. No they don’t replace Sakic, Forsberg, Blake et al – it’s in addition to an already fine team. That spells serious trouble for anyone hoping to compete for the Cup this year, particularly our Wild who are still missing their two top scorers last year to holdouts.

Ouch.

Update – Colorado made the playoffs but their spending did not give them the ultimate prize as they didn’t even make the Cup Finals.
