His ability to win face offs and kill penalties is probably what will be most attractive to Vancouver, also he’s only missed six games since 2006-2007 and has only taken over 30 PIM twice in his NHL career.

Anyway, on the first day of the draft, this could present certain problems. As the Avs are sitting at their table while other clubs are drafting, it is easy to get bored.

With the future of Chris Pronger in jeopardy, the Philadelphia Flyers have been looking for a defenseman to replace him.
Apparently their search has taken them to the Avalanche where, apparently, they have called about the services of restricted free agent Erik Johnson.
