Maybe I'll start to listen now. Nah, that's okay. Who would want to listen to a preseason Avs radio broadcast anyway? Oh, that's right; Enoch and Sakic19 probably would. My apologies I'm sure.
Lappy, I'd think it's safe to say you're a *******!

Seems as if Svatos bought himself some more time. Granato mentioned in his post game interview that they would look at him for a "few more" games.

The Avs have been outshot in all of their games.....

Ab has only given up one goal so far this preseason!

for Jori on the excellent updating.

First off, to Lappy22, you’ll be happy to know that your boy was wearing the “C” on his jersey tonight. Do you happen to know if that’s going to be permanent? It might be if they keep getting cursed with injuries.

I dug out the binoculars and checked out the press boxes. Since there wasn’t any TV there was plenty of room for all the injured players. This actually took up two press boxes because there was so many of them Deadmarsh, Palffy, Allison, Miller. It was ugly. I think they said Miller has an injury to his hand.

I was listening to the game on the signal they have running in the arena. I like Mike Haynes a lot but I was getting frustrated with his lack of enthusiasm towards Abby. I guess “SAVE BY ABB-ISH-ER!!” just doesn’t sound as exciting as “SAVE BY ROY!” Maybe because it’s preseason it’s not a big deal but I think he sounded more enthusiastic about the saves that Cechmanek made and he was shaky at best today. Abby made some UNBELIVABLE saves tonight and looked very confident. The goal he did give up was screened and there’s no way he could have stopped that one.

I’m always interest to see which forward is going to be thrown out when the team is facing a 5 on 3. Today it was Nickolishin.

That's all I can think of for now.

Judging by Granato's comments on Cummins he could very well make it:

"Jimmy plays with his heart," Granato said. "He played tonight, just like we knew he would. He's battling for a roster spot here, and he's been waiting a long time to play this game."

WTF, why ? Where the hell can we put him ? Should Svatos not make the team that still leaves nowhere for him. I don't mind him playing a few games in place of injuries but we've already got Worrell ..

This is what I'm starting to see on the bottom two lines.


Battaglia/Nikolishin/Hinote
Worrell/Hahl/Cummins

You can switch Cummins and Hinote if ya want.

I really don't see Svatos on the 3rd line. I do see him as a call up though if one of the top 6 are injured. I think he's too small for a checking line and would also benefit from more ice time in Hershey.

The way I see it ...it's kind of like this ...take your pick from Aubin, Larsen, Willsie, Cummins.

I'd rather give Cummins a shot. He sounds like he's done well so far and he makes the team tougher and bigger. Something this team needs.

Aubin and Larsen will have a difficult time making the team due to injuries. If Cummins does make the team than there would be no need for DJ Smith as far as I'm concerned, which would leave a spot open for Liles or Slovak to slide into one of the defensive positions.

Hinote and Hahl seemed like *from the reports * they had chemistry. Why split them up? Would Cummins be good on the third line? I doubt it, but Svatos would. Really depends.......first time the Avs have had a problem with deciding who needs to be playing on the bottom lines in a long time rather than who can play on the bottom lines

To be fair, I fail to see where there was any need for Smith in the first place. He should be in the AHL because of his skating deficiencies anyway. With the young guys stepping it up, there's zero reason for Smith to be on an NHL roster, let alone the Avalanche.

It won't be permanent; Norstrom is the normal captain and I don't think he played last night did he? Norstrom has been one of the few healthy Kings going back to last season and this preseason too. Lappy isn't going to take the C from Norstrom. There was actually talk on the Kings board a couple of months back about Avery being groomed to replace Lappy and that the Kings were going to let Laperriere go after this season. High expectations of Avery if you ask me, but I guess we'll see.

You wont get an argument from me there. My only concern is that Smith is a Granato/Tocchet guy.

Tanguay - Forsberg - Hejduk
Kariya - Sakic - Selanne
Battaglia - Nikolishin - Willsie
Worrell - Hahl - Hinote

Scratches: Cummins, Larsen

With Svatos and Stephens possibly getting call-ups in case of injuries.

Blake - Skrastins
Foote - Liles
Morris - Skoula

Scratches: McAllister

Slovak would be the possible call-up.

Aebischer
Sauve
