Joe Sakic does not want a formal organizational role in hockey yet, as he is enjoying his retirement.
"Whatever they need, I'm here," he said. "I'll be able to go to the rinks and give my input, or whatever they want me to do. As an actual job, a title, I'm not really ready for that yet. My kids are at such a great age, I want to be home with them, and I'm coaching the boys' (Chase and Mitchell) hockey and Kamryn, my daughter, is in gymnastics. I'm really enjoying that. I'm watching (the Avalanche) every game, and they know I'm here. I'll be at the rink once in a while, and if they need anything, I'll be there for them." Sakic added that he is looking forward to the reunion of the 1995-96 Avalanche team, that won the Stanley Cup, on Oct. 6-7 and to the season opener for Colorado on Oct. 7 against Chicago.
