The Avs are right back to chaotic hockey as they manage to squeak a point out of Ottawa. With problems hitting them before the game even began the uphill battle was not made any easier by the reffing but the loss still ultimately falls on the Avs own faults. https://youtu.be/Rb14_GPQEdo
The Avs finally played to the best of their ability…without Nathan MacKinnon. An easy victory is exactly what doctor dubs ordered but this needs to be the start of something more for Colorado. https://youtu.be/F6ptlaOk0PY
The Avs season begins tomorrow, and while the defense won’t be at full power for opening night, the defense that has been built is hard to argue with. One final beast of a preview before it’s back into the fray. https://youtu.be/oIHTcheLo9A
The Avs took care of business against the LA Kings off a strong performance from their high-end defensemen. Gabe Landeskog had some choice words for Brendan Lemieux. https://youtu.be/KubRgnaxGDs
There’s never a good time to blow a game but the Avs picked a decent time to do it as they still maintain control of their own destiny. Underlying depth positives are overshadowed by poor top-end play. https://youtu.be/ZFlZD9cXoKU
The Avs special teams continue to fire on all cylinders as they take down the LA Kings on two Power Play goals. The second unit, in particular, is showing some chemistry on the blue line. https://youtu.be/8ZfeooZ4_e0
Joe Sakic went for the throat this offseason acquiring two big pieces to help push the Avs toward a Stanley Cup. On this season preview, DNVR breaks down how Brandon Saad and Devon Toews fit into the Avs lineup. https://youtu.be/npG6Q51HsSI
It’s good to be Devon Toews these days. In the last three months, he’s competed for the New York Islanders in the eastern conference finals, gotten married, gotten traded to a different Stanley Cup contender on his honeymoon and then finished off his run by securing financial security for himself and his new family when he agreed to a four-year…...
The Avalanche announced this morning (or late last night if you were paying attention to social media) the club had come to terms with Tyson Jost and Hunter Miska on new contracts. Jost’s deal is his qualifying offer, a one-year contract worth $874,125 next year before he becomes a restricted free agent again. Miska’s two-year deal is a two-way contract…...
The Colorado Avalanche avoided free agency but made a splash in the trade market acquiring Brandon Saad and Devon Toews. https://youtu.be/12ptTEuuJMw
It was a relatively quiet Monday morning. The Avalanche scheduled two pressers, one with newly-acquired Brandon Saad, the other with Joe Sakic, to talk about the only external move the Avs had made to improve their team. There were internal contracts, of course, as Andre Burakovsky and Valeri Nichushkin got new contracts. As we’d come to learn, Ryan Graves had…...
