The Best Mullets Available

...worn by one of the NHL's best shut down defensemen and one of it's best "heart and soul" players went to the AV's as free-agent signings.
The Avalanche signed two very good new players Sunday, and two of the NHL's very best mullets.

The Avs first signed defenseman Scott Hannan to a four-year, $18 million contract, then made a bigger splash by signing star left winger Ryan Smyth to a five-year, $31.25 million deal on a busy first day of the NHL free agency period.

The additions of Smyth and Hannan figure to give the Avs more of what many critics felt the team was lacking last season: grit and toughness, not to mention talent and some old-fashioned hairdos.

"We identified the cream of the crop, of five of six players, and we feel we got two of them. I was hoping we'd get one and we got two," Avalanche general manager Francois Giguere said. "At the end of the year, we had to determine what the needs we were looking for, and these two guys fit those needs."
I love these two pickups by the AV's.
