Avalanche Logo I made tonight!

Somebody that we used to know..

Ryan Wilson: Now your just somebody that we used to know
When Ryan Wilson first broke into the line up with the avalanche a few years back I was thrilled. He was a young very physical, hard hitting D man that this team severely needed.

Fast forward a few seasons and you have Ryan Wilson today. He is still young, and has potential, but something is wrong with him. I do not know if the various injures that have kept him out of the majority of each season he has played are getting to him, or if he just doesn't have his head in it anymore, but something is off.

Last night 3 of the 4 goals scored on the Avalanche were on Wilson.

The 2nd goal that the LA Kings scored went right through Wilson and he didn't even hardly attempt to stop it. The 3rd or 4th goal he let Kopitar push him back and then he just sat there and watched Kopitar pop in a nice deflection for the goal. That is not the Ryan Wilson we used to know. He didn't even attempt to push him out of the front of the goal mouth, he just was content letting Kopitar sit there.

Jiggy let in a softie on the first goal, and played slow and lacking confidence all night, but If Wilson played how he is capable a couple of those goals don't happen, and the Avalanche come out last night with the win.

NHL season resumes for the Avalanche

Tonight marks the resuming of the NHL season for the Colorado Avalanche. They will take on the Kings at 8 Pm Mountain time.

Just want to say congratulations to Max Talbot, as his wife gave birth to their child yesterday. He will miss the game tonight to be with his wife and child.  Sarich will be dressed as a 7th D man tonight to take that place in the line up.  Duchene Oreilly, and P.A. Parenteu will be playing on the same line tonight.

Prediction time - 3-1 Avalanche.

Poem as I watch for any trades..

Twas the eve of the freeze, and the thaw was in sight.
Not a fan was asleep, not all through the night.
midnight it hit, and rumors abound..
who can we fleece, and bring 
into town?

Lets try on the GM hat for a minuet!

Step on it, sit down, and put on the cap of the Colorado Avalanche GM and coach!

Who do you trade?
Who do you get?

What are your plans for this season and the future?

Respond, and remember to be respectful to those who are participating! thanks!

Trade Freeze Lifting at 12:00AM

So Tonight at Midnight (EST? i belive?) the National Hockey League lifts its Olympic trade freeze.
Before the news broke of Tanguays recent surgery there were abundant rumors about who the Colorado Avalanche may be interested in moving. Now the Avalanche face a tough decision. Do they hold onto all their players and hope to gather some improvements on the defensive side of things (their biggest glaring weakness currently) or do they make a move before the deadline to land a young d man that they belive they can build around with their young core for the years to come.

Personally I don't expect too much to happen before the deadline, but that being said we do have to remember this is Patrick Roy here. If he feels like he can improve his team now and in the future I am sure that he will be pushing Sakic to make it happen.

What I could see happening is the Avalanche picking up a vetran forward, ( I would love to see someone like Ott with the team, but i feel they are asking way to much for him ) and possibly a more shut down defenceman to try and help stabilize them a little bit more if it doesnt cost them too much to pull off. If teams are asking too much in return I dont see the avalanche doing much.. but we shall see. Acording to there was a trade all ready completed that would be announced the minuet the freeze was lifted. I also saw another site that claimed the Avalanche and New York Rangers had also made a trade that was done awaiting the freeze to lift. (Ryan Mcdougna??? no idea, but i would love to see that guy in an Avalanche sweater)

Who do you think, if anyone will the avalanche target this season?  Leave your comments and thoughts here and we can talk about it!

It all comes to this..

USA vs CANADA, winner will face sweeden for the gold medal. Who are you cheering for?

Few quick thoughts

So as reported by Adrian Dater of the Denver Post earlier yesterday, Winger Alex Tanguay is going to have hip surgery and be out the rest of the season. This is tough news for the Avalanche. They have an astounding 12-1 record when he is in the line up. That being said they have also had to adjust to life without the vetran winger recently as he has been out many of the games with nagging injurys.

There have been rumors swirling about weather or not the Avalanche would make a trade before the National Hockey League trade deadline or not. One such rumor mentioned has the Avalanche sending P.A. Parentue to the canadians for defensive help. The question now is if there was any truth to this does it still happen or not? Adrain Dater seems to belive that with this news there will no longer be any chance of them moving Parentue.

Personally I think that we will be seeing some kind of move for some help on the D-side of things. I would love to see someone like Ryan Mcgdougna the 23 year old defenceman for the new york rangers in an avalanche sweater.  He is a physical hard nosed player who is young, and could grow with the core for years to come.

The Olympics have come down to the game it appears most of the world wanted to see in hockey. Team USA vs Team Canada for the chance to play in the gold medal game. I think this is going to be a tough close game. The USA have been the highest scoring team in the tournament so far, and have handled every team they faced with relative easy with the exception of Russia who they beat in an extended shoot out.

My prediction, and who I will be pulling for of course is the USA. have to pull for my country after all, I think that it will be a great game, but that the USA will have more scoring depth then canada expects, and with them struggling to score against teams like Latvia, in recent games... well, they are going to have to play a lot better to beat the USA then they did in their preliminary games.
