    I watched it. It was awesome, but it only covers through the 1998 season.

    So that means no Avs 2nd cup, no Wings 3rd cup, no Bertuzzi incident, etc. There is supposed to be an extended cut of it on ESPN+ but I haven't checked that out yet.
    I need to watch it. That era was my introduction to hockey as a 12 year old with the Avs brand new in town. Hockey fan for life largely due to that rivalry.

    Haha I was very confused for a bit and then realized you dug up a very old post to quote. Good stuff. Feel bad Girard missed so much of the postseason though.
    It sucks but it will make him come back more hungry next season.

    I guess with Girard hurt, the Avs felt they have to play Makar. He's looking good, early with his zone entry and PP Quarterbacking. And then, Makar scores. Looks like he's going to be a good one.
    He might be.

    Nichuskins foot was so swollen he couldn't get his skate on, medical team had to help him in his skate, after that it was just a pain tolerance - what a warrior

    Today has been a great day at work. Wore my Mac jersey and also hung my Avs T-shirt over my office door. Actually got the attention of a fellow Avs fan where neither of us knew each other beforehand. Great to meet a fellow fan in Alabama.

    That's a good read. Hopefully he decided to stay after next season and gives us a decent deal...

    104.3 was talking about how the Nuggets / Avs practice facilities were worse than what a lot of area high schoolers and middle schoolers have to train in, amd that now that the Avs won Kroenke better build them their own. It is definitely time.

    This was me, too. I'm still jacked up! That said, I'll probably hit the wall tonight like a little kid sometime around 8:30 MST.

    Thanks for that article DB, you can definitely see his maturity this year, seems like he is more of a leader than people realize
