I'll start by saying -- screw the NHL.

However, I'm pretty excited. Landeskog is that exciting I won't fully boycott the NHL. :(

Anyways, go AVS!!!

And screw you NHL.

I mean yeah the NHL is not even close to my favorite league.

But I think the Avs are my second favorite Denver team because they have produced a title just like the Broncos.

So I'm super excited about the season in two days.

And screw the Red Wings. Can't believe that was the second post in a thread about the Avs.

Well not sure many will post in here.

Cory said he's boycotting the NHL this entire year.

Jake is mad at the NHL too but I'm sure hell watch some.

Remedy might post a couple things but this isn't even his team.

There was another guy who I haven't seen in a while who posted a lot about the AVS.

But other than that...it might just be us...

I love the Avs. I will follow all your posts about the team.

As you know I can't watch many games but that makes me even more intrigued to read opinions on the team from people who can actually watch.

Directv dropped NBC sports. So I can only watch when they are on NHL network or the actual NBC.

I'll comment on how th season is going alot. Even if I can't make a judgement off of what I see.

I hope we can have a strong short season.

Yes I'm mad at the NHL but my love for the Avs over rules that. As long as they are playing hockey I will be emotionally invested.

I would pay for NHL season pass but I just don't have time to watch 82 games. Only team I refuse to miss a game is the Broncos.

Outside of that unfortunately I don't have time and have to be reasonable.

1. I'm pretty sure I couldn't care less if you are in here bragging about a regular season win. Doesn't affect my life whatsoever.

2. Don't come into a Denver Sports section bragging about a non Denver team and expect not to get flamed about it.

3. Don't come on to a Denver Broncos forum period raving about a non Denver team and expect not to get flamed for it.

4. It's just a game. So even if the thug Red Wings win I couldn't care less if you want to trash talk about it.

I'm not sure if its true or not. But I heard they might be discounting NHL center ice drastically or possibly giving the online version of it for free for the shortened season.

Might be worth researching.

Well I've always been an Avs fan, but I will say that I don't know much about hockey or the Avs at all :laugh: I used to back in the day, but I don't really know anything.

Although after our loss to the Ravens, I've just been so crushed that I'll try to watch as much Avs games as I can, to try to watch another sport to pass time and to make me mad. I already watch the Nuggets most of the time, but I'll try to get in to the Avs more as well. I just want anything to make the pain of losing to the Ravens go away. So hopefully the Avs bring me some much needed pain. :rockon:

The Av's better sign O'rielly or i'm going to be mad. I'm very excited for the season to start and even though I was pissed it comes at a perfect time because of the way the Broncos season ended.

I'm excited to see how they play and hopefully the season doesn't start out super sloppy. The way we finished last year push the addition of Parenteau and a solid blue liner like Zannon we can continue to get better.

Maybe Sacco won't piss me off so much this year but I doubt it.

Can't wait for saturday though I think I'm going to be watching my little brother play hockey when the game starts.

You guys are fighting about nothing. The Pens will dominate both of you this year. Squad looked awesome in the black/gold exhibition game.

I did get Landy in my fantasy league :) Best young gun in the NHL imo.

He's no Malkin though :smug:

I will mainly watch and possibly attend because I'm not exactly the happiest at the Rockies right now. At least the Avalanche TRY to win, and have ownership that does care. I feel the Rockies do not have that, and I'm not the only person who thinks this.

I'm pretty sure more Avs fans will post in here when the season starts to roll. Some are probably in denial about watching hockey. Some are probably being pissy about the lockout and refuse to watch. But this thread will have success with mostly Avs fans commenting.

I only comment in here to add flare, because you can't have a successful thread without some jackass posting in it.

I'm excited but I don't forsee the O'Reily thing solving anytime in the near future.

As far as Sacco goes, I'm with you. We should start a pool of who lands in Sacco's dog house first this year.

01-18-2013, 12:07 PM
I'm going with one of his assistant coaches. One of them will look at him the wrong way and they won't be allowed to coach for 5 games.

Or Duchene will score 2 goals one night and get put in the doghouse for not getting the hat trick.

That'll be Cory I'm sure.

He told me he's boycotting the NHL this year. I don't believe him. :smug:

Broncoholic3233
01-18-2013, 12:58 PM
And yeah I don't think the O'Reiley contract will happen anytime soon.

Avs are around like 3.3 a year and he wants 5. Something like that. Duchene's new contract is like 3.5/year.

Broncoholic3233
01-18-2013, 04:33 PM
O'Reilly is under contract over seas for two years, making 4 million annually.

So, I can't see him coming back unless we pay him at least 4 million, if not more.

Avs don't seem to be willing to budge. We offered him 3.5 a year and he declined, which is what Dutchy is making.

I don't think O'Reilly will remain an Avalanche. A huge mistake from this organization, if what I fear becomes a reality.

Broncoholic3233
01-18-2013, 04:35 PM
It's also reported the team he is playing for in Russia, is willing to pay him even more than 4 million a year if he agrees to stay in Russia.

Ugh..

That sucks.

Pavel Datsyuk was considering staying in Russia, but he changed his mind and decided to come back to Detroit and finish his contract. He did however leave the door open for when his contract is over. He was asked if he'd re-sign with the Wings. He said he isn't sure if he'd retire, go play in Russia, or stay a Wing.

I know Av fans could careless, but I can understand your feeling with the Avs player.

Yeah. I heard that.

O'Reilly isn't under contract anymore though. Just a restricted free agent. He's crucial to our team too

So pumped that the season is back. Had a chance to watch the Wild game...

I really like the nasty streak to our 3rd line, but what I can't get my head around is the play of Duchene. Where has his speed gone?

It seems like he was out-skated all night. Maybe it was just the rust/effort/fatigue from camp, but good god...

I hope this isn't a recurring theme. We have so much young talent. This team right now is a wild card--we could either find ourselves and get hot, or it could be a disaster. I just don't see a medium right now.

Duchene is bigger and stronger this year. Sounds like he's changed his game. He probably lost speed because of that. He's gearing towards being a full time center this year.

01-22-2013, 04:36 PM
PK was terrible as usual. I want to see Bordeleau get into a fight! Zanon shot a laser from behind the blue line in the 3nd period, too bad it didn't go in.

Smh at Downie's penalties. Felt kinda bad for Varlamov, he got the short end of the stick on a couple goals.

DenverBlood
01-22-2013, 05:11 PM

You know, I'm probably the biggest O'reilly fan on these boards, but honestly he's a high end second line center that wants to be paid as a high profile first liner. Parentau and Mcginn both looked good tonight and Olver is a good scrappy third liner, not to mention Mitchell who is playing as good as anyone.


To be 100% honest i dont see where Ryno fits if he wants a big contract...I think he could take Stastnys place pretty easily but the avs wont dump his contract.

I wish he would replace Stastny, that bum. He or his agent got the idea that he should be paid so well going on the premise that he led the team in scoring. The Avs aren't going to offer him them what they want because because last year's offense was terrible and O'Reilly's 55 points were tied for 70th in the league.

70th.

I want to see him stay for what the avs are offering him, but if he leaves he won't have much of a chance to get any more that that.

It's nice having more than one enforcer on the team. Should be fun watching Bordeleau and McLeod, and the team is looking like it wants to play harder this year.

I realize the defense is terrible and the team is always in the box. But those were still both factors in the home games too where he wasn't allowing goals. So the statement still stands.

I hated that trade so much, and I still do. Shattenkirk is way better than Johnson and we're lacking a skilled forward that gets as physical as Stewart does. We don't even have Mclement any more and this team has played weak and lost most of its physicality since those 2 left.

Varly has lost all confidence though and that's what we talked early this year about like game 1. He's letting in blue line slappers now...he just isn't right.

Give Jiggy a start, see if you can ride him if he's hot...if not...gotta hope Varly regains his confidence.

Although Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog did not practice Friday, there is cautious optimism among the team that he could resume skating "very soon." He is considered out more on a day-to-day basis again instead of the more ominous "indefinitely."
That was the news that came out of an otherwise short, uneventful practice at Family Sports Center.
Landeskog, 20, the NHL's rookie of the year in 2011-12, has not skated since Jan. 19, when he was given a hard hit to the head by San Jose's Brad Stuart and developed a suspected concussion the next day.
The team said Friday that there is reason for hope he'll skate soon, though it wouldn't specify a date. Concussions are tricky things, though, so there are no guarantees Landeskog is out of the woods just yet.
The Avs have badly missed their young power forward. Not just for the offense and grit he provides, but things such as drawing penalties. At the time of his injury, Landeskog was drawing an average of 2.4 minutes of penalties by the opposition per game, most on the team.
