Disclaimer - I don't really follow football all that closely, although I do enjoy keeping tabs on the Broncos and truly do want them to do well (it's the Colorado way). However, I'm a big Avs fan,...

ESPN Forgot. The Hockey Community Didn't.

As some of you may have heard, ESPN forgot to mention any of the tragic deaths that struck the hockey community during their 2011 Year in Review segment. However, a blogger over at Broad Street Hockey didn't. This is list of active players, scouts, coaches, analysts, retired players and other members of the hockey world that passed away over the last 12 months. There are 84 names on the list. Hopefully 2012 will bring better fates to our sport than 2011 did. Rest in Peace. Stick tap to Travis Hughes for his great write-up on it as well.

Per the Avalanche twitter feed, VDG has been called up. This will be the left winger's third stint in the NHL. He played 6 games for Calgary in '08-'09 and 6 games for us before getting injured last year. He has 5 points (1G 4A) in that time. UPDATE: Look! Photographic proof! He'll be wearing #7.

Hot Streak or the New Ryan O'Reilly?

Ryan O'Reilly's been playing very well as of late. Is his new-found offensive touch here to stay?

Dater's View on the Team

Love him or hate him, Dater's pretty much our only source of insider knowledge when it comes to this team. And his recent story on how bad things are getting raises some interesting questions. Is some big move brewing? Is Stastny in management's doghouse? How secure is Sacco's job really?
