The NXL schedule for the North East Open has been released. I looked over the schedule and it seems that Avalanche is not playing this event.
Why? I have no idea why. Although, rumor has it that they owe the NXL lots of money and refuse to pay. And with this refusal of payment, Avalanche has decided to drop out of the NXL and on top of that, the NXL commisioner will not allow them to play Word Cup. There has been no offical statement relaesed by any of the Avalanche team members.
