Adam WrightSenior Analyst IJuly 1, 2008

The Colorado Avalanche didn't waste any time today during the first day of Free Agency.

First, the Avalanche signed UFA goaltender Andrew Raycroft to a one year deal worth $800,000. The Avs were looking for someone in net after the departure of Jose Theodore, who signed with the Washington Capitals today.

Also coming to Denver, Darcy Tucker signed a two year deal worth $4.5 Million. Tucker is definitely an upgrade of Andrew Brunette, who signed with the Minnesota Wild today.
