It figures my post that I wrote AND published last night would decide to publish today, the same day the following came out. Per Adrian Dater of the Denver Times, the Colorado Avalanche are unlikely to start the season with a captain. It will be Paul Stastny and Milan Hejduk sporting the ‘A’ with a third player to be named to also wear the ‘A’. I believe that is a message Sacco and co. are sending to the players, especially Pauly, Hejduk, EJ and Duchene for one (or more) to step up and take charge of this team. I like what he is doing, but at the same time it worries me that the same lack of inspiration that we saw the last month or two last year has carried over. Last year, Duchene and Ryan O’Reilly took charge big time and put the team on their back a lot towards the end, so look for them to do it again. Thoughts?
Trading a promising young sniper for a known agitator is nonsensical.
The trade seems to be hinting at many more changes heading Anaheim's way.
After all this time it seems the Anaheim Ducks are finally hitting their stride.
Simon Despres' return to the ice in practice signals that the Anaheim Ducks are about to get massive help on defense.
What do you do when your team is struggling? Certainly not trade away a promising young player.
It sure felt nice while the team was getting those points, but last night was a wake-up call for the Anaheim Ducks.
The Colorado Avalanche are back in the playoff hunt thanks to stellar play in net. Semyon Varlamov can make or break the team's season.
The St. Louis Blues have had a bit of a rollercoaster season, but their top players are starting to show up once again.
A dirty hit is a dirty hit, even if it might have been unintentional.
After all, who wouldn't get lazy with that many days off?
