I'm from Colorado, lived in Vancouver for six years, and have an existential crisis when Detroit and Vancouver play. They can't both lose? Is there no justice in this world?

DU Lets Go of Gwozdecky - Coaching Options

Kevin Porter gets Shanabanned for FOUR games for the knee he laid on David Booth. Explanation Video The video shows a really cringe inducing freeze frame of the moment of impact. All said, I still think it was a poorly executed shoulder check that Porter was out of position on. Before the Shanahammer was brought down with great vengeance and furious anger, he mentioned that Porter's completely clean career was taken into account. Four games for an unintentional knee is leniency. Yeesh.

This is what I propose a new interpretation of the Avs jersey should look like. The original style with the jagged trim was a great thing, but the current one is...less so. I am also skeptical that such a look could be emulated/recreated in the current RBK hegemony. SO, a new look. Our previous/current thirds have been somewhere between a Rangers emulation and a classic Oiler look. I tried to take that as a stepping off point and bring it forward a bit, without completely into the two trends in jerseys (minimal like the bolts or leaves), and simple with a contrasting shoulder area (like on our current third, actually). This looks great with the foot on the front, but our third is too fresh to get replaced, and the A defs should stay the primary logo :)

Tyler Arnason, as enthused as ever. I loled loudly when I saw this (Ryan O'Reilly is tagged in it, and it appears to be public). Thought you all might like to see it, and use it as ammo for the next epic photochop. From this lady's fb profile

Craig Anderson makes a great, non-chalant toe save, immediately followed by Matt Duchene roofing the only goal of the skills competition, which had Louongo going the wrong way, then falling on his face... Duchene's first goal was against the Wings and he scores to clinch a playoff berth–amazing!
