Maybe changing Bruno to Svatos wasn't that bad idea afterall.

Hejduk 1+0
Svatos 0+2

Congrats to Mr. Sakic, he just continues to rise up the charts.


I'm off to bed, 10PM already here and I've got to go to work tomorrow. Maybe in 2007 a three goal lead is enough for the Avalanche so I won't wake up seeing they fell apart again.

At least they are starting to get a farm system. It's been a joke since leaving Hershey (sharing with Carolina). I know Weiman isn't ready for prime time, but he is going to be great. He just isn't Kolesnik yet.

I would love to hear from Kolesnik why he left. Greener grass on the other side?

That's what is so disappointing for me. The Avs have shown that if they play hard they can basically hang with the better teams in the league. Unfortunately they have a tendency to play down to lesser opponents, and play up to better opponents instead of just going out and playing hard.

Kolesnik wasn't gonna get a chance to play in the NHL with the acquisition of Theo, so he went back to Russia. I loved him though, I'd definitely like to see more ... he is so HUGE!

Avs just stand around in a box on the PK. 4-2. Worst PK in the league.
Lappy is washed up all of a sudden. Had a chance to clear, and fumbled it away.

Radulov scores. Special teams continue to hurt the Avs.

That was all Theodore's fault. Obviously he is using reflective mirrors to distract Budaj. Screw you Theodore, always screwing the Avs over

At this point I think the biggest acquisition the Avs need to make is a good PKing Forward.

It wouldn't help. The Avs have a horrible PK system right now.

I say this again, they started off the season with a PK system I loved. Continuously pressuring the puck, get it out, pressure, get it out. Now they sit around and wait passively for the puck to be shot so 4 guys attempt to block it, allowing a 50/50 chance of a deflection going towards the net.

Our penalty killing is a freaking embarrassment!

Can we just TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT, Q?! ANYTHING!

For crying out loud, just go all out to disrupt the play outside the zone, or up high, or something. NOTHING can be any worse than what we're seeing.

No offense Ad, but if that rumor is true, then the Avs may be the dumbest team in the league. There are other options of getting rid of Theodore, NOT involving a first rounder.

And as you are seeing, since Theo faces more PP's than Budaj, he is giving up a lot more goals. Budaj can't work with this PK unit either. One of the worst D's, and one of the worst PK units in the league...and the goalies are both showing it

I'm not so sure of that. Right now the Avs basically seem like they've chosen to go with Budaj, if they really want to get rid of Theodore a first rounder may be the only thing that can get it done. I'd personally rather give up the first rounder as opposed to a good young player.

I still wonder though if a team may actually want to take a flier on Theo, a bottom dwelling team with some cap space without a decent goaltender.

BTW...wow, our PP sucks!

Richie's elbow still bothering him eh? That really sucks.

I'm really hoping McLean is out with a minor injury and not getting scratched for no good reason...

Please just decline PPs and stay out of the box

I believe McLean's injury is back related and Richardson has an issue with his elbow.

I'm really hoping both injuries are just minor. I know both can have lingering effects that can really screw you over for a period of time.

Anyways...wow, the Avs have killed any momentum they may have had by just playing like crap on the special teams.
