Colorado hockey fan for longer than some of you young whipper snappers have been alive. From the old Denver Spurs of the Western Hockey League, to the original Colorado Rockies, and now the Avs.

And I hate the Wings. Have I mentioned that?

fuck the bloos overflow thread

First, what a fucking game eh? Varly kept the Avs in it in the first, then the Avs just took over in the 2nd. Then came the douchery. Hitchcock douchery. Ott douchery. Morrow douchery. Backes...

Video Review, and they still pick the only call it could not have been?

I'm sure this has been beaten to death in the game thread, but how on earth was that a fumble by J Thomas? Either he never really had possession and it was an incomplete pass, or his butt was on...

DDC Stars in AD Avageddon Story

Our very own quoted in the Sports section cover story in the Denver Post this morning. But he does not confess his love of the winged wheel.

Welcome back JML?

Rumors flying out of Toronto that Stastny is heading their way. And no, not for THE Tyler Bozak. One interesting piece coming back: John Michael Liles. Mostly to even up the salaries going back...

POLL: Who is to blame?

So far, all NHL games through November and the Winter Classic are cancelled. A lot of folks thought this would not be possible, after losing a full season in 2004-2005. But they are doing it...

Breaking news, Lauren Gardner is working the sideline during the CU-Fresno State game on CBS Sports Network. And the Buffs are attempting to set some sort of record for suck. But the big news is Lauren!

The Onion Nails Another One

As always, they are brilliant in capturing the absurd.

Best Impending Lockout Story I've Seen so Far

By Bob McKenzie on TSN. TL;DR version: The initial offers on both sides were pretty ludicrous, including some bits about the NHLPA offer I didn't know. The overall model built in the last CBA seems to have worked, as league revenues are way up. So why are the owners asking for so much more?

Stuff to boycott in case of a lockout

Although they left off TicketHorse and Altitude. And would we also consider Walmart, being that Enos married an heir?

If Mike Posted on Craigslist

Back in March of 2004. This would be him. In honor of lockout week.

Enos, Where Art Thou?

If and when we have NHL hockey this season, the Avs will probably once again be among the league's lower 3rd in terms of player payroll. Maybe they'll finally step up a little bit from dead last...

Avs Not Keeping Up with the Joneses

From NHLnumbers.com, the top three current player payrolls in the league are within our division (not sure wtf Calgary is spending their money on, to be honest). Edmonton is number 7. The Avs currently sit at 21.

Habs to Ice a Turd Line Next Season?

Hartley to coach in Montreal? If so, good for him. I loved him when he was here. Great interviews on the Fan back in the days when the local media rightfully gave the Avs their due respect.

Koviedoesnotsuck

Remember the Summer of Kovie? For the same cap bang for the buck as we're using on Paul Stastny, the Devils have the SC playoff leading scorer and are in the finals. And it's not like we lost a bidding war. We didn't even try.

We Knew Him When

Our Jibble is growing up so fast. I shed a little tear just now. Congrats Jib. Nice intro. Looking forward to reading your stuff on All Things Avs.

Enos, It's Time to Put Up or Shut Up

Confusing title, since he has more than earned his nickname "Silent Stan," so "shutting up" wouldn't really mean a damn thing. But it's a cool idiom. So there. Now, where to begin with this? How...

Faried getting some Yahoo love

This writer postulates that Faried may end up being the best player from last year's draft.

Avs have a high OBP

And according to Don Cherry, that is good. Toronto has a zero OBP. And Cherry isn't happy with that at all. Hey, if it means hating on Brian Burke, I'm with him!

Quincey Makes PD's Trade List

Of seven defensemen who could make an impact at the trade deadline. From the article: "Teammate Shane O'Brien could get a good look at the deadline too, but Quincey ($3.13 million hit) is the more intriguing option as a puck-moving defenseman who, as Adrian Dater notes, would bring back the biggest return. Thing is, he's leading the Avalanche in ice time (22:25), he's a restricted free agent next summer ... and at one point out of the No. 8 seed, might the Avalanche just want to hang onto him for a playoff run?"

Yep. What a horrible setting this would be for the Winter Classic.

Yep. What a horrible setting this would be for the Winter Classic.

Who Own Da Avs?

Already armed with an Arsenal of excuses to not spend money on the Avs, and apparently not caring about the Ramifications of neglecting them, even while giving us a Nugget of hope that he still cares about his KSE holdings here and there, Enos may soon have another reason to Dodge his responsibilities to our favorite hockey team.

Great Tebow Article by Michael Silver

Even his critics are embracing him now. Also has a few cool things to say about Elway, including a comparison of how Reeves tried stacking the box against him in the Super Bowl only to be similarly destroyed.

DiD and BiB's first annual midseason player grade extravaganza!

The Avs are exactly at the half way point of the season. So what better time to award midseason grades? This was Dan's idea. And I think his idea was that I would contribute to it. Silly Dan. We...

Vulgarity

Not really. I'm testing the rules. This is actually a link to AAA's twitter feed. Not sure what the heck he is trying to say today, to be honest.

AD Goes Off

I guess he was watching the same game that Dan and I were watching last night, not the one Jibble saw. Pretty strong indictment. Sometimes I think he gets too down on them. This time I think he is spot on.

FanPost

Have I got a poll for you!

The Avs are 2-5-1 in their last 8, are 1-5 at home and have scored a whopping 7 goals in 6 games at the Can.  Fire Sacco rumblings are starting, some people are questioning the team's work ethic...
