We enter the ‘S’s of the Avalanche players, so it’s time for Duncan Siemens to get his final report card for the 2017-18 season. Let’s get to it: Overview It seemed like Duncan Siemens’ time might finally have been up. With a good opportunity to make the Avalanche roster out of training camp, perhaps the best opportunity of his career…

Three NHL players were placed on waivers Friday morning. Duncan Siemens was one of the three. While it does not necessarily mean the end of his fraught career with the Avalanche organization, it is another obvious setback for a player who went 11th overall in the 2011 NHL draft. Unless he is claimed by another team within a 24-hour period…...

The question to Conor Timmins: How did it go out there in your first pro game of any kind? Before the kid who just turned 19 Monday could answer, veteran Erik Johnson, sitting in the next stall over, said “He was the best D out there.” On a night when the Colorado Avalanche lost a 4-1 preseason opener against the…...

When Duncan Siemens first stepped foot in the Colorado Avalanche dressing room, he was about 190 pounds of shyness and uncertainty. The Duncan Siemens of Tuesday morning was 220 pounds of make-my-day certitude, a man who has been through the jaded early steps of the pro hockey business and ready to finally make his mark with the varsity club. A…...

What will constitute success to Colorado Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic in 2017-18? Enough with the one-liners already as to what that might be. After a franchise-low 48-point season in 2016-17, Sakic had a wide-ranging conversation with BSN Denver where he talked about what it was like to live through that season – and what his plan is to make…...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mB2TRwIQ0HM Hello from Magness Arena, where a Zamboni is out there right now resurfacing the ice following the Colorado Avalanche annual Burgundy-White game. This, after J.T. Compher wiped the competition on the same ice Sunday. Compher, no question about it, was the No. 1 star of the game. He scored two goals – one a hard-to-the-net rebound putback against a…...

I’ve gotten some gloomy texts from Avalanche fans of late, who seem to be already throwing in the towel for the 2017-18 season. “AD, give me some reason for hope with this team because right now I’m just not seeing any”, can accurately sum up the gist of many messages in my inbox.

The list of restricted free-agent players the Avalanche tendered qualifying offers to was released Monday afternoon, and probably a player who wasn’t qualified made as much news as those that were.

How could the Big Brother watchers in New York and Toronto get it wrong, so wrong, during Sunday’s Avalanche game in Chicago? Jonathan Toews was clearly – clearrrrleee – offside before scoring the goal that got the Blackhawks back into the game midway through the third period. But you know what? The…...
