Guild Wars 2: The Game Gamers Have Been Waiting For

I assume most of you know I'm a pretty serious gamer and those who don't can just trust that I am based on this post alone. First off, some history. Nooch. Guild Wars was a pretty popular MMO...

Northwest Check - Calgary Flames Off-Season Review

Awwwww yeah. It's about that time again where we're close enough to the end of the off-season to look back and take a look at exactly how Flames GM Jay Feaster plans to keep his team treading water...

Daily Cupcakes - July 6, 2012


Today concludes my week long guest Cupcaking for Ms. Sandie and naturally, it's by far the most boring of them. Enjoy! Dater did a mailbag over at Sports Illustrated full of mostly meh stuff but...

Daily Cupcakes - July 5, 2012


First and foremost, hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday. Onto what everyone I'm sure wants to read more about: The greatness that is the Minnesota Wild starting lineup (cause the...

Daily Cupcakes - July 4, 2012


First off, Happy Independence Day to all of our American readers! Please celebrate responsibly - it's still a Wednesday, after all. On to the links! The hockey world waits on the two biggest names...

Daily Cupcakes - July 3, 2012


Let's start off with the funnies as Calgary handed Jiri Hudler a familiar contract and a bunch of people around the NHL had a hearty chuckle. Also ESPN continues to pump out not terrible NHL...

Daily Cupcakes - July 2, 2012


Some reaction from around the NHL about the Avalanche signing of former Islanders F P.A. Parenteau, starting with ESPN's Scott Burnside. You can argue all you want about whether P.A. Parenteau,...

Colorado Avalanche Sign F P.A. Parenteau


The Colorado Avalanche have signed F P.A. Parenteau, agreeing to a 4-year, $16 million deal. Parenteau, most recently spotted skating for the New York Islanders, enjoyed a breakout season in just...

"The Avalanche Song"


A very talented member of the Avalanche fan community drops some awesome on all of us. <3

Avalanche Final Grade 2012: Jan Hejda


2011 Cap Hit: $3,250,000 2012 Status: Signed for 3 more seasons. During one of the many threads we had here on MHH for the first day of Free Agency last July, I pre-emptively mocked whichever...

Avalanche Player Grades 2012: Semyon Varlamov


2011 Cap Hit: $2,833,333 2012 Status: Avs #1 goalie moving forward. Colorado's acquisition of precocious netminder Semyon Varlamov was the most shocking move of the NHL's first day of free...

Playoff Primer - The Varsity Conference


Somehow I ended up volunteering to do a little playoff preview here at MHH but when I sat down to write it, I decided the only games I really cared about were the ones in the Western Conference....

Northwest Check - "That Hurt" Edition


There's not anything good to say this week. I've said all season I never expected the Avalanche to make the playoffs but to come SO close and fall short is painful. Starting with the kick to the...

Northwest Check - "Losing is Stupid and Yes I'm Mad" Edition


Calgary doesn't deserve to be a playoff team. They just don't. They have 6 fewer wins than Colorado, who is only 4 wins behind Vancouver, btw, and have left the arena with losses in 41 of their 75...

Northwest Check - "With The Strength of a Raging Fire" Edition


Gonna make this relatively short because my new job has me dead tired and badly need to relax and dip my feet into a vat of ice. Calgary is living up to its name and has absolutely caught fire....

Daily Cupcakes - Links From Around the NHL, March 15th, 2012


The NHL's unstable labor situation is leading the league to cancel the league's European season-openers next year. The uncertainty surrounding the NHL's collective bargaining agreement has...

Oilers @ Avalanche, Game 70 Preview


Remember that time the Avalanche played host to a team at the bottom of the standings with nothing left to play before because their GM was inept and their roster full of hilariously...

Northwest Check - "Swift As A Coursing River" Edition


I'm really starting to respect Calgary for their consistency. As a fan of a team whose season has been a roller coaster from the very beginning, the Flames must be really easy to root for. They've...

Avalanche @ Predators, Game 69 Preview


Colorado's mad dash to the end of the season continues tonight in Nashville to play a Predators team stuck in sort of a weird position in the standings. While the Avalanche are in a big ball of...

Avalanche at Wild, Game 67 Preview


Thanks to the utter debacle of the last two games, tonight's game against the Minnesota Wild is suddenly huge. Massively huge. Hugely important. I believe Dater referred to last night's game...

Northwest Check - "With The Force of a Great Typhoon" Edition


I'll level with you. I'm pissed off about the egg the Avalanche laid against Columbus last night so I'm going to keep this brief so looking at the standings doesn't cause my hair to catch on fire...

Daily Cupcakes - February 27th, 2012


Penguins G Brad Thiessen got his first career start and win in yesterday's 4-2 victory over Columbus. Thiessen, who was undrafted, had waited patiently for his first NHL start. Since signing with...

Avalanche @ Red Wings, Game 63 Preview

Last night was weird, eh? A shutout, a stomping of an inferior opponent, Matt Hunwick scoring a goal (finally, dude), the Mammoth getting beat down at home. Strange night. Anyway. There's no...

Avalanche @ Blue Jackets, Game 62 Preview


Dat drama. Seems the Avs always find themselves caught up in the whirlwind storylines of their opponents these days, the newest example being the Avs heading into Columbus just after the...

Northwest Check - "Everyone Keeps Hanging Around" Edition


I hate this division. Nobody represents my disdain for the frustration of separation from the pack better than the Calgary Flames, who finally got around to losing...sort of. Sure they got...

Northwest Check - "Bare Bones" Edition


Apologies in advance for the much, much shorter NWC this week but I've been battling Pyelonephritis all week and haven't been able to watch any hockey. Calgary continues to be just good enough to...
