All Things Avs:
A few weeks ago, we detailed a bag skate administered to the Avs by coach Joe Sacco. That was nothing compared to today’s nearly 30-minute bag skate. The other one was from blue line to blue line. This was end line to end line.
A couple of things: Sacco stood there and watched everyone pretty closely it seemed like. The guys who lagged behind probably didn’t help themselves – and rookie Brad Malone was one. He was totally gassed and seemed to take his sweet time getting back to the end line after Sacco gave everyone a brief break. The rest of the team was there at the end line ready to go again, but Malone kind of glided on in while everyone waited. That was noticeable to some veteran hockey people watching in the stands, not just me.
There was also a brief meeting at center ice at the end of the practice/bag skate. J.S. Giguere seemed to do most of the talking. My son can also be heard at the end of this video, saying the meeting looked like a giant “black bees’ nest.”...

AROUND THE WEB
Paul Stastny back in lineup tomorrow for the Burgundy and Blue. The torso injury has healed.
Unfortunately, Ryan Wilson will not be back. He was placed on injured reserve today with a head injury, which is all I’ve been told. I don’t know if it can be classified as “concussion” related, but that is the obvious assumption these days.
Unfortunately, Chuck Kobasew is also out...
Scott Parker has praised the current Tottenham side and believes it is the best squad he has ever played with, The Daily Telegraph reports.
Parker has cemented his place in the starting line-up at White Hart Lane thanks to some sterling performances in midfield. The England international provides the perfect anchor for the free-flowing Spurs side and Parker is more than happy to...
Erik Johnson stayed after practice for about 40 minutes Monday, spending the last few playing a game of "flip a puck into a small bucket" with Avalanche teammates.
First-line Avalanche center Paul Stastny practiced with the team and coach Joe Sacco said he will be available to play tomorrow night against the San Jose Sharks.
I expect that starting next year, we will see a lot more Colorado. The Pacific Division, or as I will now call it, the MacBrayer Division (you know it exists, but never actually see anything from it) will play a lot less central time zone games, which means if West Coast teams are going to get on TV, it will have to be on the rare East Coast trips, or.... Or it will have to be on...
Pierre LeBrun of ESPN answers the rants of the fans, Pierre, I’m officially calling for both Joe Sacco and Greg Sherman’s heads in Colorado. The team is pathetic right now and they haven’t changed a thing. The price paid for Varlamov was extremely high and now it’s about to burn the Avs in the worst way if they don’t change course soon. The team has been at the cap floor...
Worst scenario would be going 0-3, and it’s not out of the question as the Avs have had a hard time getting points against division rivals this season.
Well, the Avs did exactly what I was afraid of and went 0-3 on the road to negate their previous three-game winning streak. As the team prepares to face the San Jose Sharks in a couple of days, and with much speculation about the...
When Semyon Varlamov is in the crease, Avalanche backup goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere is like an extra coach on the bench.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis has hailed Tottenham’s capture of Scott Parker from West Ham as the signing of the season....
As the two clubs prepare to meet on Sunday, the Potters' boss reveals that he wanted to sign the Spurs midfielder from West Ham, but the Londoner preferred to stay in the capital
