Predicting the outcome


Avs' depth: what's in the cupboards?

The Avs currently have 61 players where they own their rights or have them under contract.


July 1, 2014 - Post Mortem

Everybody knows what has occurred by now. Stastny to St. Louis for $28M for 4 years. Iginla to the Avs for $16M over 3. To me there are a couple of situations here to examine to break down how...

NHLPA Tested by Harsh CBA Proposal


Excellent article by Stu Hackel examining the CBA and how the owners are testing the pa

Top Defensive Pairings in the League


Interesting article on NHL numbers says that O'Byrne and Hejda struggled just a bit. It would be interesting to see the rest of the Avs dmen in there too but I don't see any.

Semin Hitting the Market


Agent says he won't re-sign with the Caps. After watching him coast around in the last minute of Game 7 vs the Rangers I would pass personally unless it's down around $5 million/year

A terrific article by Ken Dyden on his views of concussions in hockey.

Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts


A couple interesting insights on The Avs and the secrecy regarding the oprganization along with notes on Roy and Sakic. I also think his comment on the Ducks being top heavy applies to the Avs too, just The Avs don't have Perry + Getzlaf.
