Let’s open up the mailbag here, for some Avs talk. What a week eh? Waiting for the Matt Duchene trade turned into the hockey version of “Waiting for Godot”, but it finally happened Sunday night. I know there are lots of questions surrounding the deal and what the results will be down the road, so let’s get started: https://twitter.com/poleary19/status/928075522533404672 Hello...

Lots of laughs around the locker of Nikita Zadorov today. That’s sarcasm. Definitely not a fun time for the big Russian defenseman again, as he is in that dreaded state of no-man’s-land of being good enough to be on the Colorado Avalanche’s roster, but not deemed good enough of late to play actual games. When Zadorov was a healthy scratch...

In a bizarre week for the Colorado Avalanche, the roller coaster ride continued with crazy momentum swings, weird breakdowns, brilliant moments, off-again-on-again injuries, peculiar officiating, and an odd four-day break. For only a two-game week, there’s plenty to cover in Avalanche hockey so let’s get the wild mouse ride started. THE GOOD 1. Stick taps to rookie Alex Kerfoot who...

In this week’s Avalanche weekly breakdown, Adrian Dater and Allie Monroy discuss what the Avs need to do to stop their three-game losing streak, starting with Tuesday’s game with Dallas. Who needs to step up offensively to fill the void with the injuries to Tyson Jost and J.T. Compher? Also, why is it important that Erik Johnson not play as...

Welcome to the second installment of “Avalanche Mailbag”, where I try – keyword try – to answer/address/discuss some of your questions and observations. As I write this, the Avs have lost three games in a row and just lost two key young forwards (Tyson Jost and J.T. Compher), not to mention a defenseman (Patrik Nemeth) who was among the NHL’s...

(Due to technical issues at the site, Tuesday’s article couldn’t be posted until today and does not reflect any information from the Nashville game. Likewise, all statistical information is based on numbers as of Tuesday morning.) The rollicking roller coaster ride with the Colorado Avalanche continued into the second full week of NHL hockey, chock full of thrills, chills and...

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...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XvIfm7Onmw SAN JOSE, CALIF. – In a dark, grungy practice rink on the outskirts of this Bay Area city, the Colorado Avalanche’s 2017-18 rookie class’s play, in the final analysis, mirrored their surroundings in their “Prospect Showcase” game against the youngsters of the San Jose Sharks Saturday night. Sometimes, promises of a bright future shone through. At other times, things...

While the Colorado Avalanche season is over, eight Avalanche players are participating in the IIHF World Championship hockey tournament. Granted, it is not the Stanley Cup playoffs but after such a gut-wrenching season, one can hope some of the struggling players rediscover their joy of playing and go into the offseason with some confidence. With that in mind, an abbreviated...

On Friday night at the Pepsi Center, sticks were raised in the air not unlike glasses of champagne during a toast. “Here’s to a brighter future!” would  have been the proper caption to a photo of the moment when Avalanche players saluted the crowd, after a youthful lineup beat the playoff-bound St. Louis Blues. The caption to almost any photo...
