    Default THE official Colorado Avalanche/NHL thread!!!

    The season is fast approaching and since I won't be at BM much Im starting this over here too.

    This thread is for all things Colorado Avalanche and the NHL as it pertains to the Colorado Avalanche.

    If I'm the only one that posts in this thread, fine, so be it. I like talking to myself.

    hope the Avs have a great year and play my Canes in the finals

    I'm possibly deploying again in October, but if I don't, time for me to buckle down and hook up NHL Center Ice again. I'll pay the late comers fee! I don't even care! It's worth it to watch Sakic, Smyth, Hejduk, Wolski, Stastny, ETC ETC ETC.

    I can't wait, the Pepsi Center is going to be busy this year and full of excitment with the Avs and Nuggets! I wish I could make it to Denver.

    Avalanche Announces 2007 Training Camp
    Colorado Avalanche Aug 30, 2007, 1:45 PM EDT The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club will begin its 2007 training camp on September 13, with 30 veteran players reporting for medical and physical tests.

    Since I'll be in AZ from the 14th-23rd I think it's a safe bet to say that I'll be at the Avs/Coyotes on the 17th. I'll get a good look at some of our young talent.

    By the way pre season hockey is under way.

    http://http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl...ott&id=3011999
    Colorado Avalanche: The Avalanche missed the playoffs for the first time since 1994, but given the way they finished up the regular season, chasing the Calgary Flames to the final days of the schedule, don't expect them to make a habit of it. A promising crop of youngsters, including Wojtek Wolski and Calder Trophy finalist Paul Stastny, combined with veteran free-agent acquisitions Ryan Smyth and Scott Hannan, makes the Avs one of the more interesting teams to watch this season. There's still the issue of former Hart and Vezina Trophy winner Jose Theodore, who will earn $6 million to serve as the Avs backup behind Peter Budaj. But there might be a market for Theodore, whose contract is up at the end of the coming season as the trade deadline approaches, if the Avs are lucky.



    Dearly departed: Patrice Brisebois, Pierre Turgeon, Antti Laaksonen, Ossi Vaananen, Ken Klee.
    Joyously welcomed: Ryan Smyth, Scott Hannan.



    Burning questions
    • Will 100-point man Joe Sakic, who turned 38 this offseason, ever start to act his age?
    • Can Jordan Leopold, who played only 15 games last season, return to form as an elite defenseman?
    • How long will it take Avs fans to fall completely in love with mullet man Smyth and his mullet sidekick Scott Hannan?
    • What does Stastny do as a follow-up to his 78-point performance and NHL rookie record 20-game points streak?

    i didnt realize we got rid of oz, oh well hannan is better anyway.

    i just wish they would air the preseason games. Pisses me off so much.

    from what i have heard, if/when peter clears himself to play- he will come here. barring we dont pick up or make any other trades limmiting our space/cap until then

    YEAH, if when. a guy i play hockey with, one of my best friends actually, told me that.

    he is a die hard hockey fan. like no other. i dont know who he talked to to get that info, but so far everything he has told me has been pretty accurate. i think he talked to joel quinnevile. not sure. i will ask him next time i talk to him. to be sure.

    LETS FREAKING HOPE SO!!

    although someone made a good point, if when we do sign fopa, that might potentially move stasny to 3rd line, which would not be good. but that is a predicament i would like us to have.

    Who do you root for? I am a coyotes fan also an avs fan aswell. Even though i don't really watch most of their games, i do peek in every once and a while and peek the standings every week.
