1. Rough start for a couple of former Avs It has been a tough last couple of off-seasons for Avalanche fans who grow closely attached to some of the team’s players. Some real fan favorites have gone out the door over the last two summers. Obviously winning a Stanley Cup takes almost all of the sting out of losing those…

The thing we love about playoff hockey is the drama, and Game 3 between the Colorado Avalanche and the Nashville Predators had no shortage of it.  Now, we’re going to get into the details of the game, but we have to start with what ended up being the biggest story of the night, and that’s Darcy Kuemper.  With just about…...

We are coming down the home stretch here, with less than two weeks to go until the playoffs start, and we are starting to get some clarity on what matchups will look like, at least in half of the league.  The Colorado Avalanche continue to take advantage of a great position in the standings and are gearing up for the…...

Plenty of interesting games this weekend, and we’ve found some good value once again. Last week got off to a shaky start, but ended with a couple wins to finish at a cool .500 on straight bets (doesn’t include parlays or props). I’ll have four straight up wagers for you every week, accompanied by one not completely ridiculous parlay, and…...

Jack Johnson – D Pretty average Jack Jonnson night, honestly. The Avs were sloppy all night,  he got beat out from behind the net for the first goal, and that bumped him down grade-wise. Erik Johnson – D- The sharp decline is here. Erik Johnson has become problematic for this team when he plays like he did tonight. The play…...

The Avs started their season without superstar center Nathan MacKinnon and head coach Jared Bednar. Now, they’re going to be without their captain. The NHL Department of Safety announced on Thursday afternoon that Gabriel Landeskog has been suspended for two games for a hit late in the season opener on Kirby Dach. On the ice, the refs gave Landeskog two…...

Deadlines spur action, and both sides sure waited until the last second, but it’s done with. With a little over 20 minutes to spare, the Avs and Gabriel Landeskog came to an eight-year agreement totaling $56 million to keep the Captain of the team around for most of the next decade. The deadline where teams could offer their pending unrestricted…...

In a move that comes following reports that the Avalanche and Gabriel Landeskog’s camp are far apart in contract negotiations, it is now expected that Landeskog, the Avs captain, will be left unprotected in the expansion draft. With the trading this week of Ryan Graves, it’s clear the three defensemen the Avs will protect in the expansion draft to be…

Before he even began taking questions from the media, Avs GM Joe Sakic wanted to make it clear that the organization will be honoring the late, great Pierre Lacroix not just this season, but in the future as well. Sakic announced that there will be a special pre-game ceremony and moment of silence for the former Avs GM prior to…...

After over four months away from the game due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you had to know the players were eager to get into a game situation after a few days of practice. On Thursday, Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar and his staff gave all the players that opportunity, separating the 30 players between two teams and letting them go…...

The Captain is back. Well…maybe. “I still haven’t had a two-goal game all year,” Landeskog deadpanned to me after morning skate on Wednesday. While that may be true, the post-All-Star break Landeskog has started to look more and more like the captain Avs fans have come to know and love since he entered the NHL in 2011. Before the All-Star…...

Vladislav Kamenev waited patiently. The 23-year-old Russian has consistently been one of the first guys on the ice before practice, and always one of the last off. Whether it’s working with Shawn Allard on little things to improve his game, or helping Jussi Parkkila with his goalie drills, he’s done everything and more to be prepared for when the Avs…...

The mystery is over.

Head Coach Jared Bednar hinted at it yesterday, but the first guy to get a shot at playing on the top line with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog in Mikko Rantanen's absence? J.T. Compher.

The 24 year old Illinois native isn't looking to change his game too much, as he knows what makes him successful.
