Happy with five

You know, there are some times, as well as teams, where working a regulation-sized helmet doesn't make much sense.

In the case of the Avalanche, it was more that we had different items -- from pucks to cards to three jerseys -- that we opted for a mini helmet and the opportunity to cherry-pick some of Colorado's top-name stars.

And while some may view that adding only five autographs as a lackluster effort, I was satisfied that Colorado's Adam Foote, Tony Granato, Milan Hejduk, Ryan Smyth and Wojtek Wolski all took the time last Thursday to sign it for us.

I'm thinking, too, that there's still room for a few more players -- Joe Sakic (if he is still playing whenever the Avalanche returns), Ian Laperriere (one of my NHL favorites), Paul Stastny and Marek Svatos.
