I also wonder what Colorado is going to be like next season if they lose both Stastny and O'Rielly. Could be a possibility and the Aves are no longer sharks at the UFA table anymore. Those are two quality centers.
Colorado has scheduled a press conference for tomorrow, which I am assuming will be to announce a deal for Stastny. That kinda surprises me, but I can't think of what else this presser would be about.
They have said they will go to arbitration on O'Reilly. They'll probably save some money, but will also alienate one of their best, young players and lend credence to the widely-held notion that they are cheap and somewhat incompetent in their free-agent dealings.
Stanley at the draft table is one of my favorite fake (Onion-esce) stories for 2014. For some reason I keep thinking of fictional characters that remind me of Stanley's delusions. For the literary-inclined here, which of the following characters does Stanley remind you most of:
1. Captain Kurtz - Heart of Darkness
2. Billy Pilgrim - Slaughterhouse Five
3. Teddy Daniels - Shutter Island
4. Lennie Small - Of Mice and Men
how about Lloyd in "dumb & dumber".... "so you're telling me there's a chance"....
Stanley's got as much a chance of being a gm as Lloyd had of hooking up with the babe....
Stanley isn't as smart as Lloyd so that hurts his chances a bit.
