Here Come The Avs: Matt Duchene And Company Are Finally Warming Up

When the season started everyone had high expectations for a young and extremely talented Colorado Avalanche team and why wouldn’t they?

Avs should consider moving O’Reilly

In the past, I’ve been very vocal about my belief that the way the Colorado Avalanche manage their forward lines is not a recipe for long-term success. I won’t rehash all the reasons why I believe that to be the case, but to put it in its simplest terms there are just very few teams with enough talent to be able to score consistently across three lines. Plus, even if you are...

Semyon Varlamov re-injures groin, back on the shelf

            Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports The Colorado Avalanche can’t seem to catch a break this year. Seemingly every bounce has gone against them this year, just a year after they seemingly had all the luck in the world on their side. They haven’t been bitten by the injury bug quite as hard as last year, but there are still...

Avalanche-Flyers Preview

After winning 12 of their first 13 games last season, the Colorado Avalanche rode that wave of success to the club's first division title in 11 years. Their patience has been tested during a much worse start to the 2014-15 campaign, but they're focusing on taking small steps to turn things around.
