Finally some love for the Avs

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=588925

Were finally getting notcied by someone, seems liek all season everyone has had us pegged as a bottom feeder again with no reasoning other then we were bad last year, finally someone realizes that were a MUCH better team!!!!

And on the pool for were the Avs will finish in the NW, more then 50% of the people think will finish in the top 2, and almost 25% think were going to win the NW, I think beating Vancouver is a little bit of a stretch, but with a healthy Varlamov I think were almost a gurantee to be at least 2nd in the NW!

Feels good to finally be recognized as a better team in the West!!!

Colorado doesn't deserve any love until they prove they're better than 2nd to dead last

Finishing second in the Northwest poll doesn't really mean much. And anyone voting for us as number one are either Avs fans, pissed off Vancouver fans, or pissed off rival-of-Vancouver fans.

Was thinking more of a 4/5 match-up, Avs get home ice. Win in 7. Long hard low scoring series thanks to Halak and Varly.

I have no faith in scratcho. If we had a legit nhl proven coach then I'd have more optimism. But the chances of us sucking as bad as we did last year are pretty slim. Lots of new faces on the team and its likely that they start slow out of the gate until they get a lot of playing time together.

I wont no love for this team. When did it become acceptable to come 2nd last in the league 2 yrs out of 3? Yah yah we came in 3rd last one year but still. This team deserves to get shat on until they actually do something that warants praise. That being said War Lando!!!
