Good thing I will be taking my fiance to some cheesy valentines day movies instead of watching the game.

You could watch the game together, but perhaps she's not into horror?

It would be best to keep all prospects away from this club for the time being.

So that leaves the Avs with having to sign those guys that come out and clean up the snow around the net and along the boards during the tv timeouts to fill the roster...

I thought the same thing at first, but then I realized that there might not be anything funnier to watch than this defense we will be icing tonight. If we lose by 8 or less, I will consider tonight a win.

I've never noticed for the Avs, but for the Flames they have ice girls. Avs should recruit them instead.

I've been trying to think back as far as I can, and I can honestly say that even with Duchene in the line up, this is the worst looking team on paper the Avs have ever thrown on the ice since the move from Quebec and probably the couple years before when I started to follow them.

It would make sense for Varly to get injured, that would effectively eliminate our entire starting lineup (at least one that we could've expected).

This thread is great.

But just imagine....seriously imagine....

How bad it would be for Minny fans if we actually beat the wild with this lineup.

It's a surefire sign that the Avalanche are going to win tonight.

And since I threw 7k vCash at Dallas last night and lost it all, I am hoping for a big win from the Avs to put me back over 1k.

I'd put Sgarbossa on the top pairing before the guys we're using on defense...

Yeah play Bordeleau over one of our most talented young players...

It's nice that Sacco gives Barrie a chance to shine though by playing him with Hunwick those 2 should clear the net easily ah well it's not like our other pairings clear the crease anyway.

Sacco expects it to get ugly. On the scoreboard, and likely on the ice, too.

I don't have a problem playing Bordeleau, he's been a nice, pleasant surprise on the
4th line this year. But, no offense to someone like Kobasew, is there a reason why 'Bossa has to sit for him? So far this year ANY offensive chance that he's had he has not even come close to converting them.

I like him, he plays hard, but if we're struggling to score goals I would think that he'd sit for someone who's a bit more creative with the puck...then again I thought for sure that Sgarbossa would get a shot at playing on a line w/ Stastny, but that hasn't happened yet.
