Young Avalanche center Matt Duchene was pegged to play alongside new right winger P.A. Parenteau ever since the former New York Islanders forward was signed as a free agent last summer. Sure enough, those two and left winger Gabriel Landeskog were appointed a line Sunday by Colorado coach Joe Sacco on the first day of an abbreviated training camp.

Parenteau earned his four-year, $16 million contract by producing 38 goals with the Islanders as John Tavares' right winger over the past two seasons. Tavares and Duchene are similar players, and were selected first and third, respectively, in the 2009 draft.

"Look at what he's done the last few years. He's really built a name for himself. And looking at his contract, the Avs obviously think a lot of him," Duchene said of Parenteau, 29. "I'm excited. I got Landy and P.A., great guys to play with."

Duchene celebrates his 22nd birthday Wednesday. He would like to continue to play with Landeskog and Parenteau until he is at least 23.

I think youll get good production from PAP, just keep your expectations realistic and be prepared for periodic dumb penalties.

Didn't the Jones family produce it's first offspring a few months back? That's probably what's kept his attention during the lockout.

Even that keeps you in some kind of shape though....


And to qualify my observations, I was at camp for about an hour today

Judging from how many of my hs friends have changed in the belly region, fatherhood doesn't keep you in shape. Doesn't prevent some from staying in shape, which Jones should have done.

It can sure flip flop ones life and sleep and focus and all that though. I've said it once I'll say it a hundred times. Pro athletes should not be allowed to have children until they are retired.
