I started blogging for the now defunct "Blanc, Bleu et Rouge" in 2007 as the Avalanche correspondent. When Joe started MHH he decided that there wasn't enough rough humor and bad punctuation, so he invited me! I'm a recreational goalie for some pretty mediocre adult ice hockey teams and have tried to learn as much about the position as possible and as such will attempt to pass that knowledge on to anybody that is bored enough to ask.

I've followed the Avs since they were the 'Nords. I've spent the vast majority of my life in areas of the country with little to no ice, whether man-made or natural, but hockey has always been a passion.

Some pretty good analysis here and not toooooo fancy stat based.

Game 3 Preview: Avs at Minnesota


The excitement follows the 2-0 Avalanche as they head to Minnesota for Game 3.

Things are gonna change, I can feel it!


We've all had a fall-back team the last few years that we rooted for when it became painfully obvious the Avs were burning down the trailer park.

Varly Named NHL 2nd Star of the Week


No seriously. They are aware the team exists after all.

Another trip to a Eastern seaboard city, another loss. That's two in a row. It's officially a streak.

Factoring in the Outcome


Pretty Simple Really.

QotN: Let's forget this happened, kay?


Sandie Triumphant!! Colorado? Not so much.

QotN: Don't Say F%ck


Lou is my barber. He's kinda shifty.

Anatomy of a Goal and Top Shelf Crossover-Part 2


What's better than having the number 1 and number 2 article series on the entire internet? Having both of them analyze the same goal!!! And one of them is funny!

Monkey Ejection


Duchene ends his goal-scoring drought with the GWG in last night's Preds game.

Game 47: Devils come down to Denver


Mainly because there's no hockey in Georgia anymore.


Tavares for Thornton-Steen-Giordano

Just came across my desk: Tavares straight up for Joe Thornton, Alex Steen, and Giordano. Here's my current roster: C - Duchene, Tavares, Roy, Dubinsky, Couture W - Dustin Brown, Cogliano,...



Homestand over. Time to work. Every point counts.

Wandering Eye Hurting?


Could the somewhat public musings about trades be affecting the on-ice product?



That sucked. No intensity for a must-win game + lack of give-a-shit when down a goal (or two) = why the hell do I do this to myself?
