Definitely tuning into this one.

Honestly...whenever a team ices a bad D due to injuries, they tend to play very well.

I'm expecting a shutout for the Avs.

At this rate we should be allowed to draft both Seth Jones and Nate MacKinnon.

We're using a 3A, 3B and 3C setup.

When I saw O'Brien on the second pairing, that was already enough to make me feel bad for Colorado fans. Add Zanon and that's just painful.

What is happening with Duncan Siemens? Is he still considered like a top prospect for the Avs?

That defense will look fine in the long-run when they draft Seth Jones.

Yes, he wasn't playing great to start the year in the WHL, was something like -10 though the first 15-20 games or so, but since about mid November he has been a rock on Defense for Saskatoon, now a +24 after 54 games. He shuts down other teams top lines every night, and producing the occasional point.

He is very much still a top prospect for the Avs, really turned his game up a notch since November.

Pretty big if. Also missing ROR, Landeskog, and Downie. We're due to get shutout again.

Good to hear Anyway with a 48 games season and a 2013 elite draft. It's not a bad thing to miss the playoffs this year. I wish you guys Seth Jones. + A trade involving RoR could bring the Avs some nice pieces too.

Does this mean we could actually score goals in this game, instead of just a goal?

if we only score one goal against the Avs ... I don't know what. Sheesh i really feel for the Avs this year. Looks like the second half of the Wilds season last year with their injuries and the holdout thing.

Sorry Felix, this ain't happening

People may say Minnesoata aren't scoring, but you're underestimating how bad the Avs are. We will not win. We will be made to look awful. The end.
