Sakic Makes Up Mind, Will Play
by November 30, 1999 @ 12:00 am (Category : Blogs )

Filed under: Avalanche, Western, NHL General, NHL Free AgencyUnlike our friend Mats, who apparently has issues with this “decision-making” thing, Joe Sakic has figured out what he wants to do.

The future Hall of Famer announced Wednesday that he intends to play again in 2008-2009. He signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche, setting him up to begin his 20th season in the NHL.
When healthy last year, Sakic was still effective, averaging around a point per game in the regular season and exactly one point per game in ten playoff games. However, he wasn’t the impact player we’re used to seeing.

He’s still a great leader and a super representative for the Colorado organization, but if the Avalanche are leaning on him to lead them to a Stanley Cup, they’re crazy.

Not only that, but Sakic’s return doesn’t even begin to make up for the loss of Jeff Finger.

Right?
