The Avs make a move to acquire some grit

The Avalanche looking for a little grit to go with their finesse have made an offer to the Boston Bruins for forward Martin Lapointe. On saturday accoring to the Denver Post the Avanlache offered Martin Skoula and Alex Tanguay to the Bruins for Martin Lapointe and Kyle Mclaren. Has Lacroix tinkered to much with this latest possible trade or is this just the kick in the pants the Avs need to get their season going?
