Svatos Re-signed

NHL.com posted that the Avalanche have re-signed forward Marek Svatos to a 1 year deal.

Was this 1-year deal only to trade him away or you think he’ll stick with them?

    Its a 1 yr deal because thats what the Avs wanted..its not because they will trade him..its solely based upon his injury problems. Throughout his careers hes had several shoulder problems and they wont risk giving him a big contract only for it to happen again. This year if he stays healthy and keeps playing well he’ll land himself a bigger multi-yr deal with the team.

    He was signed to a 1.05 mil contract…

    I agree, think its dependent on his health.

    Good signing…he’s very valuable to the AVS along with Wojitek Wolski.

    … (crack)

    I had a feeling this day would come, because if you re-arrange the letters in “Marek Svatos.”, you get:

    MAREK S. TO AVS

    It was a sign.

    If he keeps up last years pace, it’d be hard to imagine the Avs being able to sign him to a longterm contract next year.

    But that’s okay because they can always just trade him to a divisional rival straight-up for an underachieving defenseman.

    funny which under achieving defensemen did we get. only 2 we had we signed last year and this year. Ken klee and patrice brisbois

    good one..

    Just like I was using Jaromir Jagr first name’s letters to spell MARIO Jr. back when he’s been drafted by the Pens.

    That, also was a sign to me. 😉

    I think he is talking about the Tanguay for Leopold trade not Klee or Brisebois.

  8. GoalJudge says:

    Avs spend 1 million to get 30 goals.

    Not bad.

    Compared to what other teams spend 1 million on.

    Not gonna mention any names though.

    Again, it is a low ball contract due to his recurring injuries.

    They will focus on it this year, so that it rehabs for the long-term. They will sign next year, if he makes it, for a mid-level contract that should take him to his prime. Two or three million for about 4 yrs.

    i know he is i just wanted to see if he could defend his comment and it appears he cant.

    Please tell me they had a desireable amount of cap room to sign the guy beforehand, because with the kind of roster they got right now… better hope they see big things out of Wolski and Stastny, or else it’s gonna be a long season for Colorado.

  11. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    they had enough cap room for him. and by the sounds of it u do not know what this kid is capable of.

  12. avsrule24 says:

    its too early to bash klee though

  13. avsrule24 says:

    The avs still have a lot of talent on this team despite losing Blake and Tanguay.

    But yeah, the avs should hope Stastny and Wolski are good.

    Svatos is a real great player though. If he can stay healthy, this team could do real well.

  14. EddieAVS says:

    this team can really go either way this year. But the main factor right now is how Theodore will play. If he’s solid this year, the avs will be fine. they have a balanced offense with an defense that can move the puck and skate well.

    wolski sakic hejduk

    brunette arnason svatos

    konowalchuk turgeon laperriere

    laaksonen richardson may

    The team has a balanced of pkers and can have a solid pp, just perhaps not as good as last years

    time will tell how theo plays

  15. Doctor says:

    yeah, he’s not getting traded. if healthy, svatos will more than make up for the loss of tanguay.

    Good signing! He’s a natural goal scorer but he has to keep his head up or Carlo Coliacovo might line him up again.
