As expected, Brett Clark's time in Colorado will not continue into the 10-11 season. For three million dollars, I'm glad that's the case.
Clark was servicable in his time here and was put up with mostly because of his shotblocking.
Last season, Clark was completely absent offensively (three goals) and was the odd man out in the playoffs, appearing in just one game.
The Avalanche defense looks set with:
Depending on who you talk to, you're likely to also hear the names Shattenkirk, Gaunce, Cohen, Elliot, and Barrie thrown around as well.
Best of luck to #5..hopefully his time in Tampa is fruitful.
