It'll look a hell of a lot worse if/when the injury bug hits.

Rationally thinking, absolutely. But the other side of the coin is that maybe that would wake the team up? Maybe losing someone like Duchene might wake up the team. I'm no way saying Duchene should get injured or hoping for that, but I'm saying that it could be the result there.

At this point I'm starting to hope two or three of at least our d-men go down so we can get some upgrades from the A.

Definitely would prefer that Duchene doesn't go down. But just about anyone else, I'm game. Maybe not Hedgie.

Colorado sits 26th in the league in Penalties per Game at 3.33, yet 3rd in PP% at 22.2

If the Avs were to get as many PP opportunities as Carolina (125 in 28 GP) they'd have an additional nine goals this year theoretically. This is the most significant jump between actual PPG and projected PPG in the league.

I'm going to look for more things like this when I get some time, but I find it very interesting how few powerplays we get on most nights when we're supposedly a fast team, usually fast teams draw penalty with their speed. Instead we have 4 of the most penalized players (O'Byrne, O'Brien, McLeod, Quincey).

So you're saying they should dive every time someone skates near them like Canes do?

Clearly, if they spent as much time taking acting lessons as they did being bag skated, we'd never have lost Johnson for 5 games and Mueller would be at over a P/G.

If professional hockey players can't get through a couple of bag skates without pulling groins and getting injured, our problems lie much deeper.

Good one, on a more serious note, I agree with you, with all their speed you would think they should be able to draw more penalties. I think this has to do with their reputation around the league, they aren't exactly a team of superstars, so when there's a borderline call to be made in most cases it goes to benefit a player of higher profile. I'm not saying that's the biggest reason for it, but it has some role in it.

Yeah, that bum Johnson needs to get in shape. Spending all summer sitting around not doing anything is why he hasn't scored a goal.

Maybe if Mueller hadn't been faking his concussion he'd have been in better shape too.

But as we all know thanks to McNabb, professional athletes have two groins, so they were obviously dogging it and just taking a few games off.

I think what is silly is blaming a slight groin pull on a light bag skate. It's bad luck. Could have happened in a game or in practice. People shouldn't use it in their anti-Sacco agenda. They should have plenty of ammunition anyway.

True enough. If it didn't come across, my last two posts were pure sarcasm about the attitudes around here sometimes.

If people want more thinks to think about;

Avs have the fewest SA/PK in the league at 1.06 (tied with Montreal) and are the only team under 100 SA at this point in the season.

However, that doesn't translate to PK success as our SV % while on the PK is an abysmal 81.8%, 2nd only to CBJ at 80.7% over 85 PKs.

Johnson said he hurt his groin in the San Jose game, not the bag skate.

Didn't turn out to be 0-24-0 (or 0-0-24, whatever), but how about 1-7-0 with goal difference of -13 before Avs season is two months old? Avs are the only team in NHL with less than three points against own division so far.

Updated and added+sorted "last road game won in regulation against a team in the same conference" by the number of games, not by the date.

Or 1-9-0 when Avs season turned 30 games old? Goal difference is -17.

Here's in contrast the whole NHL's point% from divisional games (that is, the amount of points team collected divided by the amount of total point shared so for example a shootout win is 2/(2+1)=2/3=66.67%):


Chicago Games: 3 Points For: 6 Points Against: 1 Point%: 85,71
Boston Games: 10 Points For: 16 Points Against: 5 Point%: 76,19
NY Rangers Games: 4 Points For: 6 Points Against: 2 Point%: 75,00
Vancouver Games: 8 Points For: 12 Points Against: 5 Point%: 70,59
Calgary Games: 10 Points For: 14 Points Against: 6 Point%: 70,00
Detroit Games: 3 Points For: 4 Points Against: 2 Point%: 66,67
Los Angeles Games: 12 Points For: 18 Points Against: 9 Point%: 66,67
Winnipeg Games: 9 Points For: 13 Points Against: 7 Point%: 65,00
Pittsburgh Games: 6 Points For: 8 Points Against: 5 Point%: 61,54
Buffalo Games: 6 Points For: 9 Points Against: 6 Point%: 60,00
Minnesota Games: 9 Points For: 13 Points Against: 9 Point%: 59,09
Washington Games: 7 Points For: 10 Points Against: 7 Point%: 58,82
Philadelphia Games: 5 Points For: 7 Points Against: 5 Point%: 58,33
Phoenix Games: 9 Points For: 12 Points Against: 9 Point%: 57,14
Florida Games: 10 Points For: 13 Points Against: 11 Point%: 54,17
Tampa Bay Games: 10 Points For: 12 Points Against: 12 Point%: 50,00
Nashville Games: 5 Points For: 6 Points Against: 7 Point%: 46,15
San Jose Games: 9 Points For: 8 Points Against: 10 Point%: 44,44
Montreal Games: 8 Points For: 8 Points Against: 10 Point%: 44,44
Edmonton Games: 11 Points For: 11 Points Against: 14 Point%: 44,00
Dallas Games: 10 Points For: 10 Points Against: 13 Point%: 43,48
Anaheim Games: 10 Points For: 9 Points Against: 12 Point%: 42,86

Based on today's standings, the 8th place team in the west will finish with approximately 93 points.

In order for them to be in that range, they'll have to win about 30 games over the next 51, along with a sprinkling of ot losses.

Simply put, if you break the season down into 5 game series', they have to 3 out of every 5 games to have a realistic shot.

And this is pretty optimistic still, knowing that 93 is very low amount of points from West to qualify to playoffs.

But like said, it is important to remember that the absolute amount of points means pretty much nothing, only the relative amount matters. That's why there's a huge difference if you win a game in OT/SO or in regulation.

Anyway, I agree with you.

Avs were able to blow the game against Sharks and thus confirming that the streak of not winning a Western team on regulation on road will be extended to ten months.

With quick calculation, the franchise record is 24 games, which included these games:

3/14/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Washington Capitals 3-5
3/16/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Pittsburgh Penguins 3-6
3/21/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Boston Bruins 3-3OT
3/28/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Buffalo Sabres 4-4OT
3/30/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Montreal Canadiens 3-4
10/8/1991 Quebec Nordiques@New Jersey Devils 5-6
10/17/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Philadelphia Flyers 3-5
10/23/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Montreal Canadiens 2-3OT
10/31/1991 Quebec Nordiques@New York Rangers 4-5
11/12/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Hartford Whalers 4-5
11/14/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Boston Bruins 2-5
11/23/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Montreal Canadiens 3-5
11/27/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Buffalo Sabres 4-4OT
12/5/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Boston Bruins 2-2OT
12/17/1991 Quebec Nordiques@Washington Capitals 1-3
1/2/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Hartford Whalers 1-4
1/4/1992 Quebec Nordiques@New York Islanders 2-5
1/8/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Buffalo Sabres 2-4
1/9/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Boston Bruins 4-5
2/13/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Philadelphia Flyers 2-3
2/15/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Montreal Canadiens 4-4OT
2/20/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Pittsburgh Penguins 4-4OT
2/22/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Hartford Whalers 0-4
2/23/1992 Quebec Nordiques@Montreal Canadiens 3-3OT

Interestingly, the last game of that streak was Feb 23rd while the last game before this current streak was on Feb 22nd. A day off? Nope, 1992 was a leap year so these both dates were "7th to last of February"

The previous Avalanche record was 11 games, from Feb 17th to Mar 30 2008.
