April 19th - MHH Vancouver Meetup

So as it's been discussed elsewhere, a couple of us in and around Vancouver are going to meet at St. Augustine's (Commercial and Broadway) this Saturday to catch Game 2 against the Wild. Give us a...

Delicious Icing - Corsi in Context

+

An introduction to team Corsi in even strength situations and how it applies to the Avs. I've touched on this idea before commenting on other posts, but wanted to give a full in-depth explanation to a) actually justify why the numbers I was using are relevant, and b) show that I'm not just talking out of my ass. The Flames turned out to be the perfect team to frame us against, so looks like it was my (statistically) lucky day! This post also has a chart, so it's practically a scientific paper.

Don't Panic

So the Avalanche just fucking blew my mind last night with an absolutely ridiculous trade that immediately convinced me that Pierre Lacroix has gone completely insane. How in the world could we...

How Not to Run a Power Play

As we're all aware, the Avs have been atrociously bad up a man this season, handing out breakaways like free candy and allowing more goals than they get. Because I'm probably a masochist or...

Drury Out for Monday's Game

1

6 weeks, to be exact. Which is a shame, I was looking forward to seeing him again. It's also too bad how his career's gone so far downhill after that ridiculously overpriced contract. You know, just like every other free agent who signs with the Rangers.

Fantasy Hockey 2: Electric Boogaloo

Posting a quick reminder because the first FanShot has sunken to the briny deep and the draft's in about 20 minutes!

Behind The Net's Avs Eulogy (via Puck Daddy)

64

I was kind of hoping for some M&G or C&B vitriol here, since this one just amounts to pointing out the obvious. Give into the hate, Gabe! Let it consume you! That said, I'm surprised at how quickly everybody's forgotten that the Avs were actually the better team in Game 1, and if Blake hadn't deflected in the game-winner, Galiardi certainly would have. Oh well. Next year, our Corsi is gonna kick ass.

Hey There Avalanche
