I wonder how we'll do in these divisional games this year. It has to be better than last year... right?

Well this is a pleasant surprise. **** a top pick, it's better watching Duchene, Landy, ROR and Varly making the playoffs.

We can't do any worse than last season within our division. And since we've had all our top players playing overseas we should be coming into the season hotter than a few other teams. And if we finish 9th in the west we could still win the first draft pick.

Watch video, get pumped!


And on a side note, man, how the team has changed from the one in that video....some sadness with Salei on there and some good memories of Yelle and Footer.

Stewart, Liles, Budaj, Anderson, Salei, Galiardi, Yelle, Hannan, Tucker, Koci, Mcleod, Hedricks. So many old faces.

The NHL initially thought of starting training camps as early as Wednesday, a day after expected ratification votes on the new CBA.
But the league is now looking at the weekend of Jan. 11-13 to do so, hopefully by Friday the 11th. There were just a few too many logistics still to iron out for a Wednesday opening.

Most or all Avs will be back in town by Tuesday. I’m sure they’ll do some scrimmaging in the meantime til the weekend.

More time to get the O'Reilly deal done.

I'm alright with waiting until Friday. Hopefully they open up trading/signings before that. Really excited to see the Avs start playing some hockey again.

I'm more excited to see all the details of the CBA, signings, trades, buyouts then watching the actual games to be honest.

If training camp opens Friday, I'd take off work to go watch.

I noticed the Nuggets are home most of January, so the Avs may be on the road a good chunk to start.

January 19th is what David Pagnotta (4th Period) is saying

And no 50 game season, 48. Not really a big deal imo (but clearly not final)

I find it amusing that EDM fans are already guaranteeing that either Schultz or Yakupov is going to win the Calder. Just like RNH and Hall

A couple of my friends and co-workers here in Edmonton are still bitter about RNH not winning the Calder. It has been seven months and they're still complaining.

But I do think Yakupov should be one of the favourites.

I also think Yakupov and Schultz both have a chance to win, but especially in a shortened season anything could happen. Plus there are many others who have a chance.

Its absurd to say your guy is going to win before a game has even been played. Lets wait for half the games are played before we even start talking awards.

Tell them that a kid who gets majority of his points on the powerplay, shouldn't win the Calder.

I don't think we need worry about it, in a short season all you need to worry about is winning. It doesn't matter who is in the division, just go win.
