            Awesome to have a championship caliber team around town again.

            Though I have to wonder if the lack of attention around here, up until now, is attributable to Kroenke’s baffling decision to not let us watch the Nuggets and Ava when they have the best player and best team in their respective leagues.

                Playoff heartbreak. No one wanted to jinx it. It’s been what 21 years since we played for the cup?

                  Avalanche gave the city some juice when they first won it all in 1996, then the Broncos followed with their run.

                  Hopefully history repeats itself here.

                    Nugs and Avs are great teams no one knows about because Stan Krok is a moron. Consequently...no one gives a shit except hardcore fans. If Stan had his way ...no one local would see them in the playoffs this year. Think of it this way and it was on local news. cable companies have about 1.5 million subscribers in Colorado...roughly half those people even have the package to see the Nugs and Avs. There are roughly 5.5 million people in all of Colorado.

                      But, will the long break hurt the team from being idle like it has the Lightning?

                        Nah, it will help. We need to get Keumper back, Kadri Back, Cogliano back, Burky played but hes still hurt. Landy is playing but hes still hobbled he gets rest days every other day. Sturm just came back.

                        Id rather our guys heal up these 8 to 11 days and worry about rust vs worrying about health. Ideally Tampa/Rangers goes to 7 and they beat each other up!

                          Also...they thing I took from the Oilers is that they are a dirty canadian team. We teach and allow them to play our sports and then they play without honor. What a bunch of trash.

                              Hockey is America’s sport until one of the Canadian teams wins the Stanley Cup again. Too bad!

                                Good luck to the Avs. Since the Penguins ain't in it anymore, I'm rooting for them.

                                  Been watching the Avs all season long (the Altitude Network) and they are best team in the NHL. Credit Joe Sakic for putting together a team that has so much talent and depth. Joe has made several trades that have panned out and obviously he's drafted well with players like Makar. I credit Sakic with all the teams success

                                    The Avs have won all year. People worried about the lengthy time off haven't been watching. They swept the lightning and it didn't hurt them. The Blues were their toughest match up. The Avs have lost twice in the post season and only once in regulation. The other was a miracle that ultimately didn't affect the series outcome. And they have yet to lose on the road.

                                    Now they will get much better goaltending from either the Lightning or the Rangers in the finals, but depending on how long that series goes, we could get a lot of people back.

                                    So relish in a watching a fun, super fast, very deep team.

                                    And f**k Kane.

                                      Hell yes F**k Kane (Nurse too - both got dirty this series). Still not over his hattie against us in the regular season.

                                      Makar reminds me of Bobby Orr. And yeah, I'm so old I remember watching back when the NHL had only 6 teams.

                                        I have a friend who has club level season tickets to the Avs. He says his seats on the open market are going for $5000/ticket. I'm a former Avs season ticket holder and I was at game 7 win vs the Devils in 2001. While prices were no where near that back then I sold home games 2 and 5 of that series, attended games 1 and 7 (the two Avs home wins that series - they lost home games 2 and 5).

                                        Rangers would be the easier matchup, but if it's NY I expect the open market ticket price will be more than it would be for Tampa. Lots of rich Ranger fans out there in the NY market.

                                          I'm a huge Avs fan, but haven't posted anything because I didn't want to start an OT thread. Haven't posted much at all actually because the POS KC trolls keep taking over the good posts. The Altitude thing is a joke, but Connor McGahey on the Avs audio play by play makes the game more fun anyway. Similar to Logan, I'd rather listen to them than anyone on TV.

                                          The Avs have been amazing this year, with the exception of the last 10 games of the season. They really should have had the Presidents trophy, but they changed their lineup and played with some of their guys from the Eagles to set up for the playoffs. Guess we avoided the curse though, as Florida got bounced.

                                          The best game of the playoffs was the 4-0 beatdown in Game 2 vs the Oilers. Avs were just a wall all three periods and Franci was nails in the pipes.

                                          Most hardcore Avs fans are just happy to be past the 2nd round, but here we are with the Stanley cup in sight. They'll have to solve the goalies in the East. Both Vas and Shesterkin are great goalies (that series is going 7 for sure - hope we face the Rangers). We'll need to play boring hockey for the entire series to avoid giving up breakaway chances. Look for more high scoring games as we give up soft goals. I think Bednar is going back to Kuemps for game 1 if he's healthy. Really hoping Kadri can play with the thumb as well. Go Avs Go!

                                            Last year's Avs would have had me chewing my nails over a sweep before the Finals but not this one.

                                              This year's team is built different. They have grit.
