Northwest Check - "First Place Was Fun While It Lasted" Edition

Reality can kind of suck sometimes. Luckily, we're only about 12% of the way through the regular season so reality is still kind of an unknown at this point. Is Edmonton really THIS good? I know I...

Northwest Check - "Yeaaaaaaaaaahhh!" Edition

Awwwwwwwwww yeah! We're back and rollin. I actually had written the majority of last week's Northwest Check but a surprising amount of work and an intrusion of cute chicks kept me from pumping out...

Rookie Camp - Day Three

And just like that, Rookie Camp 2011 is over. Today featured me being lazy and not taking notes for 25 minutes because I just wanted to watch some hockey for a bit. I did manage to get a bunch of...

Rookie Camp - Day Two

Sorry the post is so late. Had some major issues with SBN yesterday and it cost me 90% of the original post but because I'm human I did have to get some sleep. Hockey season is definitely back. A...

Avalanche Trade for, Sign G Semyon Varlamov

The Avalanche have shocked the hockey world and passed on signing Tomas Vokoun in favor of trading for G Semyon Varlamov. The trade is for a first round pick in 2012 and a second round pick in...

In a move literally nobody saw coming, the Avalanche have brought in Jan Hejda, formerly of the Columbus Blue Jackets, who became expendable in CBJ with their recent acquisition and signing of D J...

Free Agent Frenzy Thread Part Two

Well that first thread didn't quite take us as far as I thought it would, but whatever. Let's do this! Free Agency GOGOGOGO Links to Streams are found here:   TSN & Sportsnet Northwest Division...

Free Agency Frenzy Thread

This is it. We should find out who our new goalies are in just a matter of hours. Will they go big with Vokoun or will the Avs pull a surprise and snatch up a name that hasn't been bandied about...

After the second season that never happened in the span of three years, SlamDunkTheFunk and Mike decided to take a long, hard look at how the Avs should go about team-building for the future. ...

Dater profiles Herpaderp

Just like the title says, Dater takes a peak at one of the prospects in contention for the Avs first first-round selection. Usual DP comment reading rules apply.

Stanley Cup Playoffs Update: 6's, 7's, and a first.

Stepping in for The Beach-ed One while she pretends to be far too busy to contribute to the site so you're stuck with me twice on the same day. Oh, the huge manatee! We've finally seen some final...

Northwest Check - "Majoring In The Minors" Edition

And we're back! After a week off trying to decide exactly what the hell I was going to do in this space the off-season, I glanced at the NHL/AHL playoff brackets and had a good laugh. The Northwest...

Come in, have a seat, maybe a couple drinks, and let's watch a little playoff puck. Let's pick some arbitrary teams to root for (sup, Tampa Bay) and take a break from pointless arguments about Andy...
