Tickets to Fridays game

So, due to circumstances beyond my control, I am probably going to have to work Friday night (9-23).  That means I am most likely not going to be able to use my tickets for that nights game against...

MHH Practice Session

So with our upcoming game against the Avalanche Guild, I was wondering if anybody is interested in getting together for a little stick time.  Apex in the Arvada area has some times coming up. EXTRA...

Adam Proteau says something worth reading

5

Probably the only thing I've read of his that makes sense. And in light of the Av's start last season, let's hope the repeat that and build on it. The spirit of the thing... "In fact, of the 16 teams that qualified for the 2010 post-season, 10 won at least six times in their first 10 games, while 14 won a minimum of five of their first 10. The only exceptions were the ever-plucky Nashville Predators, who went 3-6-1 to start the season, built a 44-23-1 mark the rest of the way and still only finished in seventh place in the Western Conference, and the veteran Detroit Red Wings who went on a tear to finish fifth in the conference. By now, we all should understand the primary reason why teams are unable to climb back into the playoff mix later in the season: the NHL’s irrational points system that awards the so-called "loser point" to a non-victorious team in any game that goes to overtime or a shootout."

Avs Marketing?

So, I know we all like to bash on the (lack of) Avs marketing around here, so I thought I'd share a little something with you all.  Today I received a phone call, from a real live person no less,...

Don't like Chris Osgood (BiB, I'm looking at you) Click here

"Granted, you don't have to have a great goalie to win a Stanley Cup. Detroit proved this a couple times with Chris Osgood" Hah. Despite all the bad things I sometimes say about AD, he nailed this one.

good article on refs and players

This guy is about the only reason why I read THN anymore, and with all the talk of refs this year I thought I'd post it up

Kroenke's Empire

"The St. Louis Rams might be No. 2. The St. Louis Business Journal is theorizing that you might exercise your right of first refusal to become majority owner of the Rams as the children of the late Georgia Frontiere try to sell their 60 percent stake. As the Journal pointed out, the NFL is pretty much the place to be for big-time sports moguls, at least in the States. And you might feel a duty to St. Louis to step in if a buyer emerges who wants to move the club back to California, as has been rumored. Unfortunately, the NFL has a cross-ownership ban that would require you to dump the Nuggets and Avalanche if you take over the Rams, which makes followers of the Nuggets a little nervous." Fans of the Nuggets a little nervous? How about Avs fans? The last time there was owner upheaval we nearly lost Joe. Fortunately I don't think this is a real threat, but it did interest me. I had no idea there was a cross ownership deal in the NFL

Who says hockey players don't give good quotes?

"Ankle, yeah, that's close. But maybe it's just a burning sensation when you pee. You never know." - Vancouver's Sami Salo answering questions Wednesday about the lower body injury that kept him out of Game 3 and keeps him questionable for Game 4 Thursday vs. Chicago. From THN's quote of the day.

Dater post missing

So, I get home from work last night and I read a Dater post on All things Avs about Eric Lacroix and the dangers of him being the new GM.  In it, AD mentions that he doesn't care what happens to...

Svats done for the year

Well, I'd guess this hardly surprises anyone. Least it isn't his shoulder or a knee. probably would have only been a few weeks if the season weren't about done anyway.

Jibbles not alone

11

Well, I thought someone would have posted this by now, but I guess not. Apparently Jibbles isn't the only one who thinks the avs should make a serious run at Harding this year. For the record, I agree. Which means FG will sign someone else, of course...

Salary cap issues and the trade deadline

+

I think this is going to affect a lot of GM's in to having a quiet day tomorrow...errrr, today, and it ties in nicely with a lot of what dater says in his most recent blog post http://blogs.denverpost.com/avs/ It cements even further my opinion that the best thing the avs can do to improve their team is fire the coach. And I used to think that was an excuse because you couldn't fire the whole team. It seems that in the very near future, there may be a lot more buyout/waiver situations than we see now, and you know, I'm not sure that's a bad thing either for the avs or for the league as a whole. It might cut down on some of the stupid money being thrown around these days.

Boumeester?

10

"Even if a deal seems less likely with Florida in playoff position, the Panthers reportedly will consider offers for D Jay Bouwmeester, but would require more than just prospects and picks to make such a deal. The Buffalo News says that the asking price is a top-four defenceman and a veteran forward that can be sold to the Florida fan base (and help the Panthers make the playoffs this season)." So I don't normally get into the trade deadline hype and speculation because so much of it is blatant BS or outright wrong, but the asking price for Florida's stud d-man caught my eye. That price would seem to have leo and lappy written all over it. Even if we had to throw in something else (pick or someone like hensick or svatos) and take one of their players (skrastins? ha, just kidding) it seems like this would be a good deal for us (especially if we could hypothetically/ fantasy world reality sign lappy back in the summer). The trouble is, I don't know if it would be a good deal for them. What do you guys think? Pipe dream or potentially good trade for both teams (ie one that has a reasonable shot). For trades that will make you laugh, see here http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/23862-Ask-Adam-Dead-line.html

Rich Peverly waived- FG take notice

8

FG- It's ok to waive crappy players (yeah, I'm talking about Tyler "donut hole" Arnason here) who do nothing for your team except make the fans bitch and moan. Especially given the strong play of a few of your younger players lately. Just take a look at the numbers- (after all, "the numbers are the numbers, folks") Peverly 2-7-9 in 27 games, The Arnageddeon 2-9-11 in 41 games. It would seem that SOMEBODY would take Arnason off your hands. Of course, Peverly actually is on pace for better numbers per game, but Atlanta can't have the only crappy GM, can they?
