I want to see Aitto's debut, but I will most likely be working tonight.

All-in on the Avs. It's the only way to go.

Yup.

And I wanted to get the early jinx in, just in case Aitto had any thoughts about getting a SHUTOUT of his own.

Sure, lets not play a goalie who stood on his head last night just after calling out the entire team and showing that he is the true leader in the dressing room. Instead we will call up a rookie to our last place team and arguably the worst defensive core to skate in this league in the last 5 years and start him against the stanley cup champions for his first nhl game.

I'm as excited as anyone to see Aitto play. I hope the kid shines. I just completely disagree with the timing. Why not let Giggy play again. He deserves it. This management gets worse by the day.

you're right. I'm just so pissed off that anything questionable builds a fire under me. I hope it works out. I cant wait to see him play. I just feel Giggy deserves it.

Stood on his head? Anaheim only had 22 shots and looked awful. Plus, Giguere has that sweating condition so back to backs are less likely with him.

Not sure Varly will be back for a few, and if that is the case Giggy will be playing a lot (slight feeling he'll play more even when Varly returns). Back to backs may be a bit much for the old guy.

Well I was going to start Aittokallio just for fun in my fantasy league, but ESPN hasn't seen fit to add him to their player list.

Nothing quite like starting your 4th string goaltender. This could get interesting.

Management had to do something quick to get the tank back on track after Giggy went and opened his mouth like that.

There is not a big difference between 2-4 in terms of talent, IMO.

You guys are near unbearable homers. A guy that has never even touched NHL ice, with only mediocre numbers in the AHL is not that far behind a Conn Smythe winner in Giguere? The Avs are 30th overall, but lots of people can't wait to polish the turd.
