Avs Re-sign Budaj and Koci: That title would have made a great April Fools Day post a couple of months ago.
My immediate reaction to the news:
Wow. Did someone let Giguere back in the GM's office? Oh, wait. It's not a joke? Fuck. What's next - we re-sign Clark and Salei?!"
Ok - Budaj I can kind of understand - Sacco will actually have to play him more than 12 games; Sacco won't have the Olympics break to use as an excuse to over play Andy. I'd like a more proven backup (see Leighton, Michael) and I know I'm not alone there, but Budaj has proven he can be a very effective goalie for multiple games, at least when he is on. It's not what I prefer, but its not a disaster.
But Koci? David "I won the ABD Tyler Arnason award" Koci?? David "I'll give you a lackluster my best 2 minutes a night" Koci??? David "A very poor man's Derek Boogaard" Koci???? What????!!!
Why Sherman Why?!!!
