If the hockey gods are kind, we lose this one and get focused on being sellers.
You mean like that year Howson traded Adam Foote?

Floppa and Budaj team up in the 7-1 beatdown. As a hockey fan I'm excited to see Forseberg back, but I wish the Jackets had played the Avs the four times by now so we don't have to face him. Him and Saklick ripped the team every time they played them
I don't like the way this is heading - the Jackets just came off of a successful stretch of games, and dropped a heartbreaker two nights ago. Colorado is one of the top young teams in the game, and they're getting a big emotional boost. It could get ugly quick tonight, even if Forsberg doesn't factor into the scoring.
My prediction is that it will be a blow-out one way or another ... either the Jackets will storm out, and behind a strong goaltending effort will win big ... or, the Avalanche will do to us what they've done a number of times in the past. Dominate. I'll be surprised if it's a close game at all.
