I could write you the press release version of the Avalanche acquiring Josh Manson from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenseman Drew Helleson and a 2023 second-round pick, but grading things is just what we do here at DNVR so I’m doing that instead. It’s important to note that Anaheim is eating half of Manson’s salary, which helps preserve...

Welcome to the newest weekly installment that I’ll be bringing you only right here on theDNVR.com ahead of the weekend. I’ve gotten to know someone over the last several years who I would consider to be somewhat of a gambling expert, and we spend a lot of time discussing the NHL. No, not just because I’m desperately trying to win...

Jack Johnson – C+ Jack Johnson was exactly what you’ve come to expect from him tonight. Thought he made a couple good plays, and I liked him a little better away from EJ on the penalty kill. We talked about it the other day on the DNVR Avalanche Podcast, but playing like he did tonight, JJ would be the absolute...

Nicolas Aube-Kubel – B His forechecking presence still is not what it was when he was at his best in Philadelphia but he has genuinely fit in nicely on a line next to Jost and Newhook. His goal tonight showcased a little of the finishing ability we’ve seen previously in his career. A decent night for him. Andre Burakovsky –...

After two lethargic games in a row, the Avalanche rediscovered the mojo that led them on a month-long tear as they easily dispatched the Anaheim Ducks 4-1 in the final game of their season series. Colorado finishes their eight-game set against the woeful Ducks with a strong 6-1-1 record with their only two losses coming in the John Gibson Game...

Jonas Johansson has had a hell of a month. He goes from being part of the sewer that is the Buffalo Sabres organization (complete with a beat writer dragging him on social media) to being an emergency backup on the NHL’s best team. That was one thing, but then Johansson failed to stop the first shot he saw in his...

I’ve been using this space lately to give some shine to what the coaches have to say after games and I think given the…oddities…of tonight’s Avalanche game, it’s another good time to do it. When you have postgame quotes coming from Jared Bednar like: “I just didn’t like some of our habits in the first period when it comes to...

In terms of effort, this was the kind of game we expected to see a lot more of from the Colorado Avalanche this season. In terms of execution, this was the kind of game we expected would happen going against a goaltender of John Gibson’s ilk this season. The Avalanche outshot the Anaheim Ducks 33-15, allowing just a single shot...
