The Colorado Avalanche have apparently signed Patrick Bordeleau to a three year deal, worth $3 million. I am a HUGE fan of Bordy, so I am psyched to hear this news (or read it- but really, how cool would it be if someone had shouted this down the street and I learned that way?)
Bordeleau is perhaps the most talented player I’ve ever seen who’s been pegged as the enforcer. His skating has improved tremendously in the past few years, and he’s really good at working hard along the boards. He’s the biggest forward the Avs have, and he definitely uses his size on the ice.
It’s also been reported that a deal is pretty much done between the Avalanche and Francois Allair for Allair to become the next goalie coach for the team (Adrian Dater of the Denver Post believes this will be officially announced tomorrow), and also that Adam Foote may be coming back to the organization in a part time role as a defensive specialist coach.
