08:34 AM ET 08.27 | A golf tournament seemed appropriate for the sentiment. Speaking at the 13th annual Joe Sakic Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament to benefit the Food Bank of the Rockies' children's programs, the former Avalanche captain Thursday emphasized he is willing to help the hockey organization in virtually any informal role possible. Yet Sakic, 41, added that a year into retirement, he isn't ready to serve in a full-time executive role. "Whatever they need, I'm here," Sakic said at the Sanctuary Golf Course. "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."

Just don't let him near the snowblower, shovel or snow scoop only.

A little creative photoshopping could help there.

Are you kidding??? I look like a mix of Paul Newman, Clark Gable, James Dean and Gregory Peck. All when they were alive. My wife says I look like Don Knotts's love child. Then again, I have blonde hair and she says it's brown. I'm 5'8", she says 5'7". I'm smart, she says I don't have the sense God granted a turnip. Trust me.

That's why I married an early childhood special ed teacher, she already knows how to deal with me.

He can be executive-in-charge of deciding whom the #1 or 2 overall pick will be in 2011.

And that is EXACTLY what my wife does as well. The technical term for her position is para-educator as technically she doesn't teach - just corrals, cajoles, consoles and subdues. Got her degree in Elem Ed and is great with the wee ones but has had her fill of actual teaching. Gets occasionally called upon to do it anyway, in violation of union rules...... Calling Don Fehr!

"Sakic not ready for 'actual job title' in Denver"


He means he's not ready for a job right now! He likes not having to do a thing, after having to do almost everything! LOL

When you're done with Fehr send him this way as her district also likes to ignore Federal and State rules on student-teacher ratio (doesn't stop them from taking the money though) among a slew of others. But she loves it, to the point where she's staying for those kids even if her building has taken more stray rounds in the last year than the Bruins put pucks in the net.

Takes a lot of non-physical strength (and sometimes the physical type too) to do their job.

Absolutely. My wife loves her kids but she is often beat up by the end of the day. They're big and strong and often act out. Autism.

Wasn't what they said about the Avs last year???

Oh, and isn't Ontario an ironic place to be writing from regarding eligibility for high draft picks??
