BSN Roundtable: Youth Movement on Defense

  Let’s just get this out of the way first because it’s been a long time coming and I know people have things they want to say. Nate Guenin was placed on waivers. It’s unlikely he gets claimed and he isn’t being sent to San Antonio, leaving open the possibility he returns to the Avs lineup at some point. Thoughts? Evan: Even if he isn’t sent to San Antonio now, it leaves...

Avs waive Guenin, recall Zadorov and Bigras, place Johnson on IR

  In a surprising move, the Colorado Avalanche have placed Nate Guenin on waivers and recalled Nikita Zadorov and Chris Bigras from the San Antonio Rampage. Erik Johnson, who suffered a knee injury in the Los Angeles Kings game, has been placed on injured reserve, ostensibly to create room on the roster for Zadorov or Bigras.

When asked about the decision to put Gormley on waivers, Patrick...

  In honor of the Christmas season, the BSN Avalanche crew will be celebrating with holiday themed Roundtable questions. If you were in the Colorado Avalanche front office, what one present would you most like to find under the Christmas tree?

Avalanche 2015 opening night lineup versus 2014 lineup: How much has changed?

Colorado Avalanche: Tough Decisions Looming For Patrick Roy if He Wants His Avs to Play Fast

  During his first two seasons with the Colorado Avalanche, Patrick Roy has grown fond of several hard-nosed hockey players who have utilized workmanlike hockey to earn NHL roster spots. They are the type of guys that were the backbone of the NHL in years past. Players with grit. Players who pay the price. Players who lack the high end skill to get the job done with dazzling stick...
