    I guess I’m just happy there is a season at all but these 4 game sets just to limit travel during Covid are kind of annoying.

    Yes, that was a good outing. Not sure I'm a fan of these back to back games with the same opponent. I realize its a result of the covid stuff, but still not feeling it......
    Agreed I thought it was ridiculous the Nuggets had to play back to back nights at Phoenix. But fortunately they won both in OT.

    Well the offense blew up last night and looking at the standings they aren’t as far behind the 8 ball as I thought they would be.

    Yes, I suppose its the curse of being selected as one of the teams to win the Stanley Cup. Once people start building a team up like that, it gets into the heads of the players and they then begin forcing things. I think what we are seeing now is purely psychological. Once they can shake off the jitters and play like I know they can, the wins will fall into place. (I hope)

    A lot of folks really like The Avs this year. The young talent is amazing. In a few years watch for Makar and Byram to be one of the best D pairings in the league, if they put them together.

    unreal, was so excited for tonight's game on NBC but just saw that Xfinity is ALSO blocking out that game from Colorado subscribers disgusted.

    So, just read some interesting Avalanche news. The Avalanche are doing away with the black helmet, gloves and pants that they wear and those will now be blue. Personally I think this is a better look than the black.

    Avs quietly having themselves a nice off season re signed some key guys traded for saad and Devon toews some people mad we traded big Z but I personally didn't think he was good, so many mistakes and always in the penalty box

    Those are great points. I think Bednar is a good coach, I was just looking at it more from an outsider perspective of a team that has lost in the same spot twice in a row, and the depth of quality coaches available. However, Joe Sakic saw up close two first time head coaches (Crawford in year 2 and Hartley in year 3) win the Stanley Cup. So he probably is less inclined to make a panic move than other GMs who don't have his background.

    I think I'm most disappointed in Landeskog for not playing.

    That's too bad. I wonder if the Avs might make a coaching change? Normally I wouldn't even think it was a possibility considering the year they had, but when you see the quality of the coaches available, it could be a chance to make a change to try and help push for the cup next year.

    Peter Laviolette (the coach I want Calgary to hire if they decide not to retain Geoff Ward) has take the last three franchises he's coached to the Stanley Cup Finals, winning with Carolina.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with Jared Bednar, but considering the quality of the Colorado roster, and the unique salary cap advantage they have for the next few seasons (best player in the league at $6.3 million) I could see them wanting a guy who knows what it takes to get there to try and push them to a cup or two in this window.

    What do Colorado fans think?

    And I apologize if it's a little too raw right now, as an outsider I'm a couple of weeks removed from that sting. But I think we can all agree that we hope Dallas gets beat badly.
