Good news: Camp has started!!!!!

Bad news: Mikko isn't there!!!!!

Valeri Nichushkin just got his paperwork processed and will be in Denver either sometime today or tomorrow. So...there's that.

Andre Burakovsky has taken the RW spot alongside MacKinnon and Landeskog. :|

Conor Timmins reportedly looks great on a pairing alongside big hitter Nikita Zadorov.

Goalies look fine.

Kevin Connauton is in the no-contact jersey and full facemask after taking a puck to the ol' kisser.

Is it true that Rantanen isn't even in the country?

Yep, he's still in Finland. Even said something to the effect that it's not surprising.

I keep hearing reports that they're close, but who knows.

Adrian Dater's reporting there's been virtually no talk between the Avs and Mikko Rantanen's camp the past week. Ugh.

I think the big hangup here might be that Mikko wants a bridge and the Avs are not at all interested in that. A three-year deal would mean the Avs would have to deal with re-signing Rantanen AND MacKinnon the same summer. No way. I'm hoping for a contract around $9-10 million AAV and around 6 years, though the Avs may have to go higher now that Marner's signed for nearly 11 per.

Another possible factor--Altitude TV's current stalemate with three major carriers. Money's gotta come from somewhere.
