Konowalchuk Hired

The Denver Post reports that Steve Konowalchuk has been hired as part of the Player Development staff: http://www.denverpost.com/search/ci_4858364

That is nothing but good news as there aren't many players that worked harder out there than Kono did. I'm not sure if player development only deals with the new recruits in the minors, or if it also involves the folks on the Avalanche roster.

It would be great if he did deal with the players on the Avalanche roster. And it would make sense as we have a fairly young team. Joe can only do so much to help the youngsters along and Kono would be a great influence on them. Right now some players are missing a bit of work ethic it seems and if that could be tightened up, the club would easily be above .500.
