Seeing Stastny and Carle on the ice together again in Colorado would be amazing. I hope the Avs seriously look into acquiring him. Also good to read about Jack's progress.

I have followed Jabby's progress on Caring Bridge. While sometimes they are small steps, he continues to battle through his injury. The courage he and his family has is truly inspirational!

The Avs really need a defensive upgrade too and Carle would definitely be this in that department.

Git dem two goalies some more help in front, Spawn of Kronke!

Wow, bringing Matty back to Denver would be a huge marketing move for the Avs. They would for sure notice the ticket and merchandising sales increase. Remeber Testwuide's Mom's jersey, 1/2 CC, half DU? I can see a Denver-Colorado Avalanche jersey just like that... for Carle AND Stasny.
