Denver’s In Town…YAWN

Hey. Check this out. I had no idea...

The Avs are 6-5-1 against Detroit in the Duchene era...

Want to know how your organ-I-zation has reached rock bottom?

It's when a hometown blogger (even a male hyphenated one) says that Matt Duchene, seriously...Matt Duchene, has an "era".

Denver's 8-8-something...it doesn't matter. They're sitting 13th in the West.  In all honesty, it's where their remaining 6 fans deserve to be and it's where baby Jesus wants them to stay.  So stay there they will because they're in the 9th year of a youth movement that has been less than successful.

"Did not qualify" is usually a statement reserved for Blues fans applying to Delta College in the beautiful outskirts of Saginaw, but in this case it's 4 of the last 6 dreary endings to a Dive season.

Ah well. These games used to be fun until Denver started sucking ass on a wonderfully consistent basis. 

Tonite starts a four-game string of games against teams that are pure shit.  8 points would be awesome. 6 would be nifty. 5 would be acceptable. 4 is expected.

How are those lines shaping up, Mike?

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

you guys hate on the Cleary Datysuk Abby line, but look at how they control the puck. it seems to be an excellent mix of talent and grinding.  most other teams so far seem to have trouble getting it from Cleary and Abby…and Datsyuk can get open.  if they get their scoring touch together, they’re gonna be lighting it up.  I think it’s worth giving it plenty of time to happen.

Cleary & Abdelkader with Dats is like grandma wearing a Victoria’s Secret bra.

Look, I’m 2 minutes behind everyone, which is like a damned eternity.

By the time I’d posted that, they’d regained the zone. Gimme a freaking break.
