Martin Skoula is the King Soopers star of the game. Sauve says the last goal squeaked through his legs and he thought he had it. He said he felt good and was square to the shots.

Ahhhh, maybe a conspiracy theory. The Avs may have been taking penalties to work on the PK! Sounds like the are all having lots of fun in training camp so far. Dmo said that they all took turns running at the guy (Moschividiviliv whatever it was) to stick up for Joe.

I'm pretty sure they kept Budaj up because they wanted a full game look at Sauve. So, my predictions on cuts after the game are...

DJ Smith, Cody McCormick, Tomas Slovak and Budaj.

I agree with Dario on the possible cuts. Cummins seems to be a guy that can add to the team in a few different ways and Norm and Mike said he looks to be in good shape to make it.

I hope this sinks in with Skoula..shoot the freakin' puck. Especially since the forwards are gonna get the attention more than ever now. I remember Haynes talking about Skoula before he got called up and saying he was a bigger, faster Ozolinsh. Well, so far he has proven to be bigger and as adept at turning the puck over as Ozo, but not the scoring threat. Maybe he is now coming into his own, as some of you have been saying and hoping for. Man, what would I do if I didn't have Skoula and Tangers to cuss at during the games?

Tangers has looked more physical, Skoula is shooting more. What will happen next? Foppa dropping the gloves? If Skoula picks up his physical play and keeps shooting....look out!

That's why I don't trust the radio call by local announcers. Moscevsky is freakin' monster too; good for Cummins to stick up for Sakic even if he lost and/or was bloodied. That could put Cummins over the top in making the team (or his minor penalties could put him the other way).

That's not humanly possible, Jori, unless the Avs scored a PP after the 1st penalty. Ehrhoff couldn't have both minors in this scenario.

Problem is I've seen Cummins fight before and he's not the best fighter you'll ever see by a long stretch. Moscevsky is big and he's a pretty tough guy from what I've heard. Maybe Cummins won the fight, but I doubt it, especially from that picture and it certainly wasn't as one-sided as the announcers likely made it sound. The announcers can't tell, from where they're at, what punches are landing or where they're landing at. Cummins could have been punching helmet for all we know and the radio guys wouldn't know the difference anyway.

Not saying the radio announcers are flat wrong, but they are usually very biased when calling fights live from what I've heard of them and I'm very skeptical of their calls, especially of fights.

No, Cummins isn't he best fighter by any means. But that doesn't really matter. They have Worrell for that. Cummins is a second tier guy. He is also willing to do whatever is needed to help his team. Even if it means doing something cheap (in retaliation to a cheap shot or something). So he is a good guy to have on your side. And "old school" type of player. I would still take him on my team anyday even at the age of 33.

Radio guys were saying he had a laser from the point. Broke the Pepsi Center glass (no great feat), but still on a two occasions he had the Avalanche announcers taking notice.

Directed to me? If so, it's not really necessary; I'm pretty well aware of Cummins' game already. The "dispute" was about if he actually won the fight based on the radio call, which I think is heavily biased and inaccurate, and the picture, which can be misleading at times. If the description wasn't for me, that's cool too. Just saying it's unnecessary for me.

Yes that was directed at you. I wasn't trying to "talk down to you" or anything like that. I was just making a point. And I agree with what you said for the record.

A few on a fight site said Cummins did get the edge for being the busier of the 2 fighters.

Oh yeah, I didn't believe you were condescending. I'm just not a person focused on the Avalanche and nothing else. If I was, then I believe your description would probably be beneficial. I've watched Cummins play for years with varying degrees of success and I like his style. There should be more guys in the league that will stand up for their teammates. Hell, Cummins did that for Sakic and he doesn't even have a contract. That act alone is all heart.

Totally agree.

Cummins has always been that way. Contract or not, he gives his all 110%. Wears his heart on his sleeve. He'll do anything for his team. He is one of the last of a dying breed. That is why I hope he can stick around for at least one more season.
