My day 1 rookie camp report 9/9/9/9/9/9/9/9

Today's rookie camp brought to you by the number 9.... I'm very clever and original.   I went on a twitter-fest at camp which is fun and frustrating all at once.  You can't watch as much when you...

Do not despair Avs fans, hockey predictions are predictable.

As fans we've never really gone in to a season expecting anything less than a playoff contending Avalanche team.  After last year, that's all going to change going in to the 2009-10 season.  And...

Now more than ever... why didn't they buy out Tucker?

Unlike most things I post this one it going to be short.  Now, in retrospect we know the Avalanche were going to cut costs...so why didn't they buy out Tucker?

Brampton are down 4-1 in game 4 of the series. Watch the video at the 4.52 mark to see Duchene lay a big hit on the boards and follow it up with a a fight. Fight isn't shown but it's another facet that might forecast his competitive side.

A deal with the Devil. Make the trade for Mathieu Schneider.

The Avalanche are rolling on offense.  Experience and consistancy are lacking on the back end.  Burke is unloading salary and Avs might be the perfect fit for a wiley old backline veteran.
