    Well, wait until they sign mikko and then we can talk. We have signed a whole bunch of people lately. Some unexpected. A 7 year for Girard for ex. Do not tell me you saw that coming. or the signing today of Greer.

    Dude, when they sign Mikko they're going to be close to the cap limit...the floor is the minimum and reserved for teams like Buffalo. No, I didn't see a seven year contract coming for Girard and while I like them locking him up for that long I don't think he's worth $5m per. I don't think that's a bargain at all. Sorry.

    If he develops anything close to makar or Timmons that is an amazing deal. And he was not too far off of that when he was playing for us. We were below the floor. We did have the most cap space of any team in the NHL, by a large margin.

    Our nucleus is intact and we don't have to worry about keeping our studs like the leafs. This is like the ultimate play.

    Connor Timmins hasn't played a single NHL game, so he's far from being developed in to anything. The Avs WILL have to worry about keeping their "core" in-tact sooner than later. Just the way it works. The Avs are, by my rough math, currently about $11M from the top of the cap. That means they'll be squeezing their buttcheeks. Fortunately for them, the game-day salary cap rules are in play in the NHL and some of these two-way contracts for guys like Greer, Dries, Kamanev, etc. won't count toward the cap if they aren't playing. Hockey has more of a "soft cap" than anything else.

    Default Avalanche’s Nathan MacKinnon Buys Union Station Penthouse

    DENVER (CBS4) – The star of Colorado’s professional hockey scene has obtained a lofty downtown living space within walking distance of the home team’s ice.

    Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon paid $3.2 million this week to secure a penthouse on the top floor of the Coloradan, a newly completed condo tower tower adjacent to Union Station, according to BusinessDen.com.

    MacKinnon’s is the last of the Coloradan’s seven penthouse suites. The others sold for prices between $1.6 million and $3.35 million. The building’s location is five blocks from the Pepsi Center, home to the Avalanche and the Denver Nuggets.

    Default Don't Block My Altitude

    Dear Altitude Viewer,

    For the past 15 years, Altitude Sports has been the proud home network of your Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rapids, Colorado Mammoth and University of Denver, televising live games, while providing unprecedented behind the scenes coverage of the teams throughout the community. Although Denver-based DISH Network has carried Altitude since the inception of Altitude on September 4, 2004, at midnight on Wednesday, DISH plans to drop Altitude so that none of DISH’s subscribers will be able to watch Altitude programming. Comcast and DIRECTV are threatening to do the same this coming Saturday, after fifteen continuous years of carriage of Altitude. These actions by DISH, Comcast and DIRECTV are directly related to contract negotiations with Altitude, and while Altitude has always negotiated with them in good faith and continues to negotiate in good faith, these Big Three media conglomerates want to play by their own rules and are making unrealistic demands on Altitude. Their actions will affect hundreds of thousands of regional sports fans and negatively impact hundreds of local businesses that continue to support their home teams.

    Why are these three cable and satellite giants coming together now after fifteen years to block viewers from watching their favorite local teams? In fact, Comcast and DIRECTV, which also own and operate their own regional sports networks that carry their local sports teams, have entered into agreements with regional sports networks throughout the United States, and even here in our very own region, on terms and conditions very similar to those that Altitude has been negotiating for.

    If DTV, Comcast, and Dish all drop altitude, is there even a legal way at that point to watch? Do they even broadcast?

    Altitude currently has no contract with any tv streaming service...

    Also, how is this not anti-trust?

    That wasn't the question. I'm glad you figured how to do this, but honestly access is not what I'm asking about. I know how to get it, that's not the concern.

    My exact question was a legal way to do so.

    Firestick is legal. Very legal. Using apps on Firestick is also legal. What those apps broadcast may not be legal, but that's on the app.

    I know firestick is legal, I have one. I know flashing it with custom software is also legal. But I think you may be reaching with your assumption that you have no culpability for streaming what you shouldn't.
