Development camp underway, some undrafted kids get the invite. The most intriguing of these kids is probably Vladislav Kotkov, who had a pretty good season in the Q for Chicoutimi. Dude has A+ hands, release, and size to spare, but...yeesh, that skating. Check out this "breakaway" goal.

Getting conflicting reports that Conor Timmins will sit out the entire camp due to either an ankle injury or concussion. Very troubling news if it's the latter, that'll be the 2nd major Avs prospect to suffer a big concussion following a big hit suffered at the Memorial Cup tournament. The last guy was Joey Hishon, taking a cheap shot from current Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb (to be clear--fuck that guy forever), and he never really recovered.

Mind you, there were likely OTHER reasons Joey Hishon never made it to the NHL, but that was a major setback from the start. Very disconcerting that another guy who may actually be even more important is suffering from something similar before his pro career has even begun.

Someone's excited for the season to start. Change that name back to AV, AV!

According to a story in BSN by Dater, the reason Haynes left is that they wanted him to go back to being the radio voice for the Avs so they could "promote" Marc Moser to the TV spot, and Haynes refused. I remain skeptical, but if true that's pretty strange. In any event I like Moser and have never been the biggest fan of Haynes, but a guy who's served as long as he has deserves a little better.

Also, Martin Kaut signed his ELC so he's set to be on at least the Eagles opening night roster.

Pretty exciting times for CO hockey right now. :Butch:

But also, still a little disconcerting that Conor Timmins hasn't yet recovered from his concussion suffered at the Memorial Cup tournament. Hope this isn't the start of a trend.

Well whaddaya know, Chris, it sounds like your boy Greg Cronin is set to be the first-ever head coach of the newly christened AHL Colorado Eagles. There was rampant speculation that the Avs were just going to promote Aaron Schneekloth (I mean, dude won back-to-back championships in the ECHL, that has to count for something) and Schneekloth himself was in attendance at Avs development camp, but it appears that won't be the case. Hopefully they retain him as an assistant or some other capacity. As of now, the new ECHL affiliate in Utah still lists Tim Branham as head coach, so it doesn't sound like he's heading there.

Avs have quietly taken care of business, NHL and AHL rosters are pretty much set with only Patrik Nemeth (arbitration pending) left to sign.
