DENVER -- Despite losing free agent Paul Stastny to the Central Division rival St. Louis Blues, Joe Sakic believes the Colorado Avalanche are better than they were when they lost to the Minnesota Wild in the Western Conference First Round.

Sakic, the Avalanche's executive vice president of hockey operations, said Wednesday the additions of forwards Jarome Iginla, Daniel Briere and Jesse Winchester, along with defensemen Brad Stuart and Zach Redmond, have improved Colorado's size, depth, experience and toughness.

"We saw how last year went and we had a tremendous year," Sakic said of the Avalanche's surprising first-place finish in the division, "but at the end of the year after our playoff loss to Minnesota we knew we needed to have a little more depth on our third and fourth lines, and we felt we needed to get tougher.

"We feel we got tougher, and for sure the experience factor -- leadership -- you can never have enough of that. We know our core guys are young. To bring in this leadership to help them along is huge. Now you're not relying on one or two or three guys to be leaders. We have a whole bunch of leaders helping our young guys. There were a lot of things we tried to accomplish, which we think we did."

Sabres announcer Jeanneret has throat cancer

Wednesday, 07.02.2014 / 11:34 AM / News

Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame broadcaster Rick Jeanneret has been diagnosed with throat cancer but told the Buffalo News on Wednesday he plans on returning to the broadcast booth this season.

Jeanneret, 71, told the newspaper that a biopsy three weeks ago in Canada discovered a growth the size of a golf ball in his throat. He said he'll need radiation treatment for six or seven weeks and possibly chemotherapy. Doctors have told him there is an 85 percent chance of recovery.

"I would like to stress I have every intention of coming back," Jeanneret said. "I have probably three months ahead of me that aren't going to be fun. I know they aren't going to be.

"I consider this to be a bump in the road and am fully intending to come back and fulfill my obligations to the Sabres. I know there is going to be a lot of concern. All I can do is ask everybody to please allow me and my family to keep this as private as possible. We will provide updates through the team."
