What's left for the Avs?

If you look at the individual statistics of the Avalanche centers, one area does not impress - face-off percentage.



There has been a lot of hand wringing and speculation about the "structure" that Joe Sakic and Patrick Roy talked about in their press conference last week.

THN 2012-2013 Pre-Season Rankings (via PD)


THN doesn't think too much of your beloved Avalanche. I think that the Wings, Sharks, and Preds drop out replaced by Phoenix, Anaheim, and either Colorado or Edmonton. Minny is no 5 seed, but I do think they squeak in.

Loser Point Pops the Bubble Run


Dater makes the case in SI that the shootout is killing the race to the 8th spot. Good article, and I agree. We need to make a loss a loss and reduce the value of the shootout win. CobraAceS has the right idea (don’t know if he originated it, but I’ll give him credit): ROW: 2 points (10 min 4v4 OT) SOW: 1 point Loss of any kind: 0 points Now I could see a team leading in a bubble run (8th spot or higher) trying to drive to the shootout to prevent a team behind them from getting 2 points, and that would suck too, but I think it’s a less common scenario. And, at least one team would still be trying to score, whereas now you have neither.

O'Reilly is on Puck Daddy Radio


Listen to Radar hit the national radar.

Wysh isn't sure why the Avs are winning.
