Avalanche Looking to Break out of Recent Funk

DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche could point to obvious flaws for their prolonged losing streak: Erratic goaltenders, floundering special teams, inconsistent scoring from players not on their top line . Or just go with the more direct one. "We just haven't played good enough," captain Gabriel Landeskog said. The Avalanche were tied for the most points in the Western Conference after games on Dec. 7. Two months and a 5-15-6 record later, they're trying to get on track and climb back into ...

Devils Need to Target Tyson Barrie

The New Jersey Devils have a lot of things to improve upon, and their blue line is one of them. It’s a deep free agent class up front, but aside from Erik Karlsson and Jake Gardiner, the group lacks depth on defense. That means general manager Ray Shero will have to look to a trade to improve his roster. One name that should be of interest is Tyson Barrie of the Colorado Avalanche, who has found himself in the rumor mill as of late. In a recent mailbag in the Denver Post, Avs’ beat writer ...

Another Cop Screw-up With Weapons-Mounted Lights

MCLEAN, Va. (AP) — The publisher of USA Today and other newspapers is rejecting a $1.36 billion buyout from a hedge-fund backed media group with a history of taking over newspapers and slashing jobs. MNG Enterprises, better known as Digital First Media, made its unsolicited bid of $12 per share last month.

Jost Is Challenging the Avalanche Development Model

Tyson Jost could very well become the poster boy for the Colorado Avalanche’s player development issues. Jost, the 20-year-old forward in his second full season with the Avalanche, was sent down to the AHL’s Colorado Eagles on Jan. 17. The promising forward hasn’t managed to find his shooting game with the Avalanche and now people are wondering if the team mishandled his development. Tyson Jost’s Impressive Background The Avalanche picked Jost 10th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Capable ...

Gardner Intends To Break With GOP, Vote To Reopen Gov’t Without Wall Money

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) intends to buck his party and vote for a clean funding bill without wall money, according to a Denver Post editorial. Sen.

Owner of Southern California News Group puts in hostile, $1.4 billion bid for USA Today publisher

The publisher of USA Today has received a $1.36 billion hostile bid from a media group with a history of taking over struggling newspapers and slashing jobs. MNG Enterprises, better known as Digital First Media, said in a letter to Gannett Co. Monday that its leadership team has failed to show it can run the company effectively.

Video- An Unhappy Nathan MacKinnon On The Colorado Bench Last Night

via Sportsnet's YouTube page, Nathan MacKinnon was not a happy camper after his team gave up a late goal to the Flames, seemingly saying to his coach, “Do your job.” I did try to find additional information on this without success.  The Denver Post did not have a reporter on scene, instead goind with an AP game story, the Avs website posted Jared Bedner post-game, he did not address it and the Calgary newspapers had nothing on the incident. The Avs lost the game 5-3.

How’s This For A Top Line?

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, The Avalanche’s top line of center Nathan MacKinnon and wingers Mikko Rantanen and Gabe Landeskog enter Monday’s game against the New York Islanders with a combined 148 points, the most for an NHL line through 33 games since Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr and Ron Francis amassed 203 for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1995-96.

The great Amazon swindle

Amazon has confirmed that it will open two massive new offices in New York City and Crystal City, Va., to complement its already massive headquarters in Seattle. And the verdict on the company’s decision is disgust. Amazon played everyone involved in the process: the governments that pandered to it and the media that covered it (including us). Now it looks like the residents of these communities that will have to live with their new corporate neighbor are going to be left to pay for it. In it...

Techstars Co-Founder Jared Polis is Colorado’s Next Governor

Techstars was founded in 2006 by David Cohen, David Brown, Brad Feld, and Jared Polis. Those who have been around Techstars over the last decade have heard quite a bit about co-CEOs David Brown and David Cohen, Brad Feld, and others in the early cast of characters such as Nicole Glaros and Jason Mendelson. But, perhaps some of the Techstars community doesn’t know Jared Polis nearly as well. Before we get to some fun (and slightly embarrassing) photos and videos from the early days of Techst...

Matt Duchene Trade Analyzed

At the beginning of the 2017-18 season, expectations were high for the Nashville Predators and the Ottawa Senators. The Predators were just coming off of their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final and the Senators were one goal away from meeting them there, taking the Pittsburgh Penguins to game seven in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Colorado Avalanche, on the other hand, were coming off of their worst finish in franchise history with just 48 points. With the Senators and Predators loo...

Boo Matt Duchene

from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post, If you love Matt Duchene, you will boo him when his skates touch the ice in Denver. While wearing an Avalanche sweater from 2009-17, Duchene scored 178 goals and lost 348 regular-season games (not that we’re counting). The prodigal whiner returns Friday to the Pepsi Center for the first time since last November, when Dutchy got his wish and was traded to Ottawa. “I’m sure some of our fans love him, some of them don’t,” Avs coach Jared Bednar sa...

The Colorado Avalanche Drop A Tough 1-0 Game To The Tampa Bay Lightning

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, The Avalanche was shutout at home Wednesday night because Tyson Jost was in stride. Naturally. Jost was ruled offside because his back foot/skate was hovering over the blue line, not skating over the frozen paint. His entire body didn’t cross the blue line before Nathan MacKinnon pushed the puck into the Tampa Bay’s zone, but the Avs’ ensuing goal by Gabe Landeskog didn’t count because Jost’s skate was above the blue line — and not on it.... ...
