    Colorado Avalanche 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Woo! Great start to the season 6-1-2. I'm going to the game on Friday, 10/26/18! I think this team has a chance to be really, really good this year.

    Colorado teams always seem to have a big conditioning advantage early season. You usually see the Broncos, Avs, and Nuggets (and to a lesser degree The Rockies) start off strong.

    I knew we would be hot on the road and then come home and lose. Its like the start of the Rockies season.

    What a garbage call from the refs handing wild a pp in 3rd. Can't say I agree with Bednar pulling vary on our power play either knowing how bad we are at face offs

    Such a terrible call by Bedner. At least see if we win the face off and then pull Varly

    Good grief what a garbage 3rd period, can't even clear puck out of zone

    Epic collapse pretty pathetic after 4 days off

    From my perspective it was an incredible 3rd period, kept the puck in the zone the entire time, and came up with some timely goals.

    All kidding aside, the Avalanche look like a very good team, just a poor time to have a bad period. And the Flames look like they might be going on a run, 3 wins in a row and points in 4 straight games.

    Freakin kidding me can you not keep a lead for more than 30 seconds..

    Another disappointing loss but least we got a point I guess. Refs helped Vancouver out a fair bit really poor officiating tonight

    That Petterson kid looked incredible

    Avs are suddenly not very good. The goaltending has been atrocious.

    Ouch, another bad game. Tending has been bad, and the blue liners arent doing anyone any favors lately.

    Hooray, beer!

    Yeah it doesnt seem like this team will go anywhere due to lack of scoring outside the first line. Heard an interesting opinion that the avs should offer the leafs a trade for nylander to try and help.

    Team is so undisciplined and constantly turning the puck over

    The Avs BARELY squeaked into the Playoffs, last season. This year, they are playing like they just won the Stanley Cup and don't need to work hard against teams with equal talent. And this is a team that is one year away from being arguably the worst team in recent NHL history. If this team doesn't play with a sense of urgency, they won't be anywhere near making the Playoffs this season. Right now, after losing 5 straight, the Avs are a laughing-stock.
