In addition to donating to one of the victim funds. My oldest son (6) decided to add a couple "tribalutes" to the Avs sticker on his hockey helmet for this coming Saturday. He cut out the ribbon himself (since I can't cut to save my soul). And I told him about Jessica, so with a little suggestion help, my wife found scrapbooking stickers to honor her in our own little way out here in Chicagoland (since there is NO way we can get out there). The finished product.

Buccigross: Quinn to replace Sly

Per Bucci's Twitter: #Avalanche I'm hearing AHL Lake Erie Monster Head Coach David Quinn will be the new Avs Assistant Coach that replaces Sylvain Lefebvre #BU

Avs Bag Skated Again

Is this the only tactic Sacco knows? It hasn't worked yet, and probably won't this time either

Sad News, Alexander Galimov Dies in Hospital

"'On September 12, in the morning, despite continuing therapy using all possible contemporary treatment, Alexander Galimov died from severe burns in the burn centre of the Vishnevsky Institute of Surgery,' read the statement, which was posted on the Russian Hockey Federation website."

Mini-Hockey, Just For Fun

Was going through my computer this morning, and found a video of my older son at his hockey class. This is (outside of my ridiculous commentary, and my other son doing a lot of screaming) the best one of the bunch. My kid is obviously in the Avs jersey. (About 3 minutes long)

So he's just about 5. When is he draft eligible?

Former Avs Drury and Wolski to be buyout victims

How the mighty have fallen...or broke...or floated

Once again proving the toughest athletes play in the NHL

This is just the Sharks post playoff injury list. Yowza!

Dater on the Avs "Out of Excuses"

18

Say what you will about Dater, and I'm not his biggest fan. But he pretty much nails it here

Wolski Seems to Enjoy the Bench

13

Wolski in Colorado = Semi-Hero to healthy scratch Wolski in Phoenix = Semi-Hero to healthy scratch Wolski in New York = Semi-Godsend, now a healthy scratch

No Visa, No Elliott...Again

14

Per the Denver Post: "Coach Joe Sacco said goalie Brian Elliott, who was obtained last week from the Ottawa Senators for goalie Craig Anderson, won't join the team until Wednesday at the earliest. Elliott, a Canadian citizen, is working on obtaining his U.S. work visa. If Elliott doesn't play Wednesday against visiting Edmonton, he could make his team debut Saturday at Los Angeles or Sunday at Anaheim. . . . Peter Budaj will start in goal. . ."

Game off tonight? It's possible...

This would probably be it. Maybe he can check this out before tonight's game for some inspiration. ICE GIRLS!

Locker Room Audio From Avs/Hawks

Not much to say really. I didn't head into the Blackhawks locker-room, but I did get the Joel Quenneville interview after the game (he was not a happy camper, and it was pretty boring otherwise so...

Andy's Journey (Sort Of)

2

Pretty good (albeit Blackhawk tilted) blog about the Hawks goalie tandem this year, and Anderson, and Michael Leighton's journeys through an NHL system. Also a funny story about Andy and his wannabe last name (at the very end of the article)

So much for Mueller and "Soonish"

71

Not good news on Mueller. No skating, seeking another opinion on why he can't get past his post-concussion symptoms.

Grahame Back to Lake Erie

28

According to the AHL's transaction log. Sounds like Andy is ready to go, probably backing up Boods for right now

Quick Recap of Avs, Jackets

I know someone with more "authority " is probably working on a recap, but he is my super fast version of the events from last night. Boods = Good. I thought he was going to have a bit of trouble...

Grahame Called Up

12

To go with Sandee's news (or Haynes' news) that Andy doesn't need surgery. Avs call up Grahame (for some ungodly reason)

With the Andy injury, I just couldn't resist the spoof. My photoshop skills need...well I need...

I get the Meigray Gameworn Jersey newslette, since I bought a Cody Mac jersey two years ago. This was sent to me today. If you have money to own a piece of history, BLOW IT ON ONE OF THESE (then at least thank me for sharing the link, since I don't have money to buy any of these)
