Found March 20, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
When the Colorado Avalanche made the moves they did at the deadline, many thought that it meant they were effectively giving up on the 2011-2012 season. After all, it's not often that you'd trade away players who were a part of your regular lineup like T.J. Galiardi, Daniel Winnik, and Kyle Quincey, for players with admitted potential but underwhelming performance like Steve Downie and Jamie McGin...

Young Avalanche Team In A Playoff Spot

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs, No NHL team is younger, on average, than the Avalanche. It is a team with the presumed favorite to win the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year in 19-year-old Gabriel Landeskog. It is a team whose prospects in the minor, junior and college ranks were recently rated the fourth-best in the NHL by a panel of scouts polled by The Hockey News. It is...

NHL: Avalanche Warning - 3/20/12

Last week, the Colorado Avalanche embarked on a three game road trip out east to face three very tough opponents in Buffalo, New Jersey and New York. Both the Sabres and the Devils have rebounded from poor starts to the season and have worked themselves into the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

Colorado Avalanche: "Enough is Enough"

Those were the postgame comments of Colorado Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco after his team defeated the Calgary Flames and snapped the Avs' 9-game losing streak to the Flames.  Although it would be fitting, Sacco's comments were not in reference to the Avs skid vs. the Flames. The reason why Sacco was upset despite his team's thrilling overtime victory in a huge...

Aaron Musick: No prisoners, no mercy

Well, it has arrived. Most fans didn't think it would but the Colorado Avalanche has arrived at the final push. The team that sat 13th in the Western Conference on Dec. 9 2011 is now in eighth in the conference with a chance to move into seventh place in the Western Conference with a win over the Calgary Flames.

Kyle Quincey: Reflections On The First Few Weeks

Quincey was brought in to shore up the defense and give us a little more firepower as compared to Kindl.  I was initially impressed, enough so to write an article praising him.  So after a couple weeks with the kid, what are your thoughts about him?  Mine are after the break.  In his 12 games with Detroit, he's put up two goals, one assist and a negative 1 plus/minus...
