World Lax championships in Denver RIGHT NOW

Hey just thought I'd take a shot at publicizing an event that I enjoyed today and seems to be getting less attention than I think it deserves: the World Lax championships being held at Dick's...

Roy's Risdom: Abberant, illusory, or just ahead of the game?

Full disclosure 1: On the continuum of those who approach hockey with a slide rule and abacus vs. those who reverently wrap their fandom in unwashed socks and piously avoid the blasphemy of even...

Atlantic Monthly article on Finnish Goaltending

Posted this in a thread the other day because the article is well off the beaten hockey path, but it was a great read and a detailed article. However, the problem is that I posted at the tail end...

Good Balls, really sample size, no? + nickname suggestion

Without further ado (a phrase which I believe contains, ironically, a bit of ado which I have now, somewhat disingenuously compounded) nickname proposal: the Ich-Balls pair. Wanted to hear from...

McNabb Lib

Worked on this for awhile, but this deep in the off-season, my McNabb is rusty, so this is as far as it got. . . It should be enough, though to help us start getting in shape for the preseason,...

Theories explaining Zannon's nacho aversion

Looking over the year's healthy scratches and marveling at Zannon's glaring absence on that list has, somehow, lost its magic for me. So I decided to see if I couldn't generate some intelligent...

Defense of O’Reilly wanting the ‘C’

I know the current Kool-ade flavor is very anti-O’Reilly after the captaincy issue came out, but I see it differently and thus, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful of the very worthy...

A blue pill solution to enjoying the Avalanche

Oversimplification is a subtle bad habit. One form of this is to take a successful paradigm and impose it on a context where it doesn’t belong. Thus, we argue that healthcare and education...

My proposal for Avs new Logo

3

Alternate Avalanche logo reflecting KSE priorities and a lens through which it becomes possible to see the team as perpetually successful.

THN predicts a bad mini-season for the Avs.

5

THN season prediction is that the AVS will be bottom feeders. Seems they see goaltending as a glaring weakness (?) and want more from Duchene and Stastny.

Labor Peace Threatens unparalleled Parity in NHL.

Privately, Gary Bettman must be disappointed by the fact that his attempts to bring parity to the league will once again be sabotaged by arenas opening open up and playing actual games which will...

Time to play: guess the Avs new slogan!

Given MHH’s sustained disappointment with the Avs marketing slogans over the last few years, I thought we could take some time while they/he are golfing and glibly outdo/make fun of their efforts. ...

New Conference Name Suggestions?

I thought I'd throw this out there and see what all you MHH weizenheimers can come up with.I'll start by suggesting the divided division (redundant?) be named either 1) incongruity or 2) the...

Some Palliative thoughts and comforting cliches.

Thought 1) I wish I new how to put the "e" with the right accent in cliches. Thought 2)  I believe what McNabb said last night about how important these times are for forging and defining...

Bourne applauds Duchene Candor

Good to see Duchene getting some positive recognition for his openness. I did notice that he was being showcased at nearly every event during the weekend.

Any chance of a threepeat with 3 Peters?

Just occurred to me as I realized that when I heard Sacco say in his interview that Peter would play Monday night, I briefly thought he meant Meuller. So, here's my superstition kicking in.  Budaj,...

William Faulkner on Hockey

Just stumbled across this and couldn't believe it. Never pictured him at a hockey game. Hemingway perhaps, but not Faulkner. An interesting read.

The scary truth about the origin of the winged wheel

  I started this explanation in response to Paul X’s concern for his son’s future, but thought I would reprise and extend it here since it is both pertinent and important. I think it’s time to...

Performance metrics of tomorrow: Douchi, Shootmi

As Corsi becomes universally embraced, I find it necessary to invent new metrics for us to yell at each other about.  Here are two I am currently working on.

Pruning veteran leadership, is it necessary to grow replacements?

I was thinking about the loss of Hannan's veteran presence in the wake of losing the same from Tucker and Lappy in recent years and probably old man Foote after this year.  That leaves a...

Crawford applauds Ozilinsh fight?????????

Dater's blog today has a clip of Sandis Ozilinsh in a fight for his KHL team. 

THN games lost to injury list.

How come no one ever refers to us as "injury-ravaged" Colorado? And how does Babcock's ability to hold steady with fewer injuries outstrip Colorado's massive improvement with more?
