"Absolutely, there should be more Canadian teams in these games," said Collins. "Just like teams like Minnesota should be involved and St. Louis should be involved and Colorado should be involved — you can just keep going on and on." Emphasis is mine. NHL COO thinks a Colorado outdoor game should happen.

Tim Tebow is a Hockey Player

WHAT??!! OK, not in the literal sense that the guy pulls on the skates and chases around a little black puck, but the guy is a hockey player.

Burgundy Kool-Aid Recipe

With all the good feelings flying here at MHH, we need to all partake in the Kool-aid, but the question arises, what is in Burgundy Kool-aid?  I list the following two possibilities with no...

Twiggy's Crystal Balls - October

There have not been nearly enough silly predictions here at MHH.  Oh, a few have tried to predict the starting rosters for the first game, we've all tried to pick the final point totals and whether...

I'll reserve comment until after I actually read it.

I hate no man... except for Alexander Ovechkin, Alexander Semin, Mike Green, Jaromir Jagr, Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Roberto Luongo, Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, any yet to be discovered Sedins, Alex Burrows, Mike Ribeiro, Trevor Gillies, Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza, Scott Hartnell, and anyone who wears, has worn, or will wear a Detroit Red Wings jersey.

Enhancing the Division Rivalry

The NHL has stated their reason for keeping the Division structure is to foster and maintain regional rivalries.  Nice theory, because otherwise, they don't make much sense.  You do end up hating...

Blame The Refs!

Now we know why the Avs collapsed last season. It was the refs. Our opponents had far more power play opportunities. I think Colin Campbell was behind it, or maybe Wings fans.

Looks like Avs moving to Wyoming for sure this time

It comes straight from Toronto. How could they be wrong? Stick tap to Puck Daddy

Brooks Laich is off the board

He took 6 years at $2.5M to stay with the Caps. [Edit] $27M divided by 6 is $4.5M, duh.

Free Agent Frenzy - The Roar for the Floor

OK, so much for the draft.  The Avs picked up some serious potential, but most of these players will not see NHL ice in the coming year.  There is a serious issue with the cap floor, particularly...

Looking at #11

There's been a lot of talk about where the Avs would go with the 2nd overall pick, but much less focus on the 11th.  I started looking at multiple recent mock drafts to see the players that might...

It looks like a sauce shortage has caused Wendy's to put Arby's up for sale. Let's hope the sale goes more smoothly than the PHX franchise transfer. MHH might end up supporting Arby's for a couple of seasons.

Winnipeg Thrashers - Division Re-Alignment

Phoenix is safe for another year.  Reportedly, Atlanta players have been told to expect an announcement after the Cup finals (via Puck Daddy).  If we assume that the Thrashers are headed to...

Do Avs Fans Really Want Nashville to Beat Vancouver?

I wouldn’t call it unanimous, but there has been a strong bias among the MHH regulars that they would prefer to see the Predators move on into the Conference Finals.  Why not?  Vancouver has been...

Trading for Potential?

7

Found this by way of Puck Daddy. We seem to have a glut of 3rd/4th line forwards. How about flipping a demonstrated NHL player for a prospect with a high ceiling? Tinordi and McIlrath are both on this list. Meaningless, I know, but fun to think about.

Picks or Prospects

1

I like this blog entry for two reasons. First, it's a rational argument that you really want prospects and not picks when "selling" at the deadline. Second, the lead-in picture appears to have Philippe Dupuis pulling his stick out of Mike Fisher's ass.

It could be worse...

Finally, another victory for John Scott of the Blackhawks against David Koci of the Colorado Avalanche, who actually did quite well to overcome his obvious disadvantage of being David Koci in this fight:

Copper and Blue has a down and dirty analysis of past performances for Scott Hannan and Tomas Fleischmann and concludes that the deal makes no sense for the Avs.

Something for after your weekend of back-to-back hockey

[DDC here] Stewie had 9 goals and 7 assists in October. He already has 3 GWG in October and was one of the 3 stars in 6 of the 11 games played. So...good choice.

I really like his blog in general. Today he gives SoS some real praise for his hockey sense. Favorite quote, "those guys effortlessly weave through danger, and somehow end up tapping in a goal that made someone at home go, 'I coulda buried that.' Well, sure, but you wouldn't have been standing there."

Marketing occurs. Not sure how long this link will point to the Avs marketing image, but it's pretty cool.
