Denver – When Roger Goodell steps to the podium on Thursday evening to announce the tenth selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos would be ecstatic to get themselves a two-sport athlete the likes we’ve never seen on the Front Range. Of course, Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray seems destined to be selected much earlier and when he does,…

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.
