Sure Enough, Budaj Stricken By The Swine

28

The Denver Post says goalie Peter Budaj does indeed have the H1N1 strain of the flu virus. We at MHH wish him a speedy recovery!

They Can't GIVE Houses Away in Detroit

3

Detroit sucks so bad that people aren't even willing to bid $500 for vacant houses and empty lots. This article gets a huge +1 for including the term "urban wasteland" in the headline.

Pounding out a 4-1-2 record on their recent 7-game road trip, the Avalanche are getting spectacular goaltending from Craig Anderson, but the young guys deserve credit too; of Colorado's Top 11 scorers, only Milan Hejduk, Darcy Tucker and Brett Clark are over 25 years of age.

This Might Not Be A Fluke

Blatant Plagiarism at Bleacher Report

4

Puck Daddy and Jonathan Willis at Hockey Or Die expose blatant plagiarism by a writer at Bleacher Report. Shameless.

We're not putting a lot of pressure on these guys. They don't have to feel like the weight of the world is on their shoulders. We also have them surrounded by some good players where they can just come in and do their thing.

Road Trips, Revelations and Realism

The Colorado Avalanche have now completed the longest road trip in team history (they start another road swing next Tuesday against Edmonton).  Despite thousands of miles traveled and very low...

Certainly their play dictated the majority of that decision, along with the fact our head coach and coaching staff were very comfortable with these two players, both Matt and Ryan, not only with their minutes but also in crucial parts of the game.

TSN and Avalanche Fans Know: It's Not Over

48

How would we here at Mile High Hockey react if a Tampa Bay Lightning blog started bad-mouthing the Avalanche organization and relentlessly criticizing Colorado players?  We'd ignore them, because...

The Kids Are Alright

The 2009-10 Colorado Avalanche currently have four rookie players on the roster.  After eight games, three of them are proving to be valuable assets for an underdog team overcoming dire pre-season...

Avs Will Keep Duchene and O'Reilly

35

Dater says the Avs won't be sending Matt Duchene down to the AHL Brampton. So far no news on Radar---chances are he'll be staying as well. UPDATE: Dater has updated his post: O'Reilly is staying with the Avs, too. Darn.

On Rivalry, Trolls, and Being an Adult

71

Red Wings fans once again make a bad name for themselves with shameless, juvenile comments to a post by Denver Post beat writer Adrian Dater. Avalanche fans rarely stoop so low.

Wow, the Wild and the Canucks suck really bad this year.

23

Seriously, they're both terrible. The beginning of this season is like opposite day on overdrive.

Well How About That

The early NHL standings have arch-rivals Colorado and Detroit in very unfamiliar territory.

Nordiques' Jersey Named 7th Ugliest in History

Not a year goes by that doesn't include somebody griping about the old away jerseys of the Quebec Nordiques. F' the haters. I loved 'em.

Avs' Fans Among Worst In League?

35

A Minnesota Wild blogger thinks the fan support for the Colorado Avalanche is among the worst in the league, ranking us 26th in the NHL with a lousy 4.0 (out of 10) "online presence" rating. He even admits (in the face of withering Puck Daddy criticism) that he "did not look that hard" for Devils blogs. I assume he didn't look very hard for us, either. (hat tip to chiavsfan)
