    MacKinnon Leads Central All-Star Voting. Surprised? Favorite Memories From 2021

    The Colorado Avalanche were pushing their fans to log in daily and make Cale Makar the captain of the Central Division for the All-Star Game in February in Vegas. We aren't saying Makar isn't deserving. He should definitely be in the conversation. But it was somewhat surprising and a little funny that the guy the Avs were pushing fans to vote for isn't leading the vote. It's another Avalanche player entirely in Nathan MacKinnon. Should we be surprised by this? And are All-Star games even necessary. If they are, who should go? The genuine league all-stars or players just having a good season? Kyle and Chris discuss. They also get into the Brad Marchand comments about the league and the Olympics. Marchand is not happy the league has no problem instituting taxi squads for NHL games and feels like they should do the same for the Olympics. Is he right? Finally, since it is the end of the year, Kyle and Chris will look into some of their favorite moments from the Avs in 2021. Subscribe and enjoy!

    First the Colorado Avalanche game Monday night against the Vegas Golden Knights was cancelled, then came work the next two games on Wednesday and Friday against the Dallas Stars would be cancelled as well. We can at least take some solace knowing that the Avalanche team is on the mend and these cancellations are due to the Stars having several players added to the protocol list at the pro and AHL levels that made it impossible for them to put a full team out on the ice. But in the end, we have to wait even longer know the the Avalanche return to action. Because this is yet another season that COVID is causing chaos in, are we at the point where we are giving players, coaches and teams a pass if they don't produce up to expectations?

    Here we are again. The Colorado Avalanche finished their game Thursday night against the Nashville Predators, and then found out the next day their season would be put on hold until at least December 27th, meaning the Avs will have to make up the four games they would have played during that time. The NHL implemented new standards in an attempt to deal with limiting the number of positive cases, but is that a battle that cannot be won? Is the league trying to just plug holes whenever one pops up, or should they be more proactive in just shutting the league down now before it gets worse?

    We knew the Nashville Predators were going to be without several players due to them being entered into the leagues COVID protocol. What we did not expect was Colorado Avalanche players added to the list as well minutes prior to the game. The Avalanche announced earlier in the day that J.T. Compher and Andre Burakovski were added to the list, then shortly before the game was set to begin we found out Darcy Kuemper and Cale Makar were on it as well. So the Avs were going into a game without a lot of firepower, and it showed. The Avs could never get on the same page and Nashville took advantage of that along with solid goaltending by Juuse Saros. Friday is an off day and it will be one to watch to see if any or all of the players added to the list can come off of it and take part in a big matchup on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    The NHL salary cap will see a minimal increase over the next couple years, and at the end of the 2023-2024 season it should see a significant increase. This will be one year AFTER Nathan MacKinnon signs his new deal, whatever and wherever (hopefully Colorado of course) that will be. But will the impending increase cause MacKinnon to rethink how he wants to sign his upcoming deal? Does he go short term and then sign again for a few million more, or does he just want to stay where he is in Colorado, sign long term and not care what the league will do with the cap? Kyle and I break it all down. We also discuss what to expect in tonight's matchup against the New York Rangers. JoJo getting claimed by the Florida Panthers. Petty?

But you also had one player in Jacob MacDonald get taken off the ice on a stretcher. Can anything be done by the league to prevent this from happening even if the hit could be deemed as "clean"?

    The Colorado Avalanche needed to put their 8-3 horror movie behind them as quickly as possible and the best way to do that was a win the very next day against the Montreal Canadiens. Montreal has been struggling all season and a loss to them would have had everyone asking if the Avs will ever be a contending team for the remainder of the season. Luckily, that did not happen and while the Avs did not come out strong, they were clearly the better team out on the ice and they skated to a nice and easy 4-1 victory. Jonas Johansson got the start the day after allowing eight goals in Toronto and redeemed himself. Stopping 18 of 19 shots and looking much more comfortable in net. However, the Avalanche were without Bo Byram and it is believed he is out again with concussion issues.

    It took the Avs a little while to figure out the Anaheim Ducks, but once they did there was no looking back and the Colorado Avalanche extend their win streak to six games with a 5-2 win Wednesday night. Nazem Kadri continues his hot play with two more points (1a, 1a) as well as Cale Makar who found the net yet again.

The answer is different on a game by game basis, but for the first 12 games of the season so far, you could say Nazem Kadri is this teams MVP. While players like Bo Byram and Logan O'Connor do things on the ice that make your eyes pop out, Naz has been going about his business a little quieter than those guys and it has lead to him leading the team in points thus far. Sammy Girard is another guy who has been unnecessarily been tagged as the fan punching bag. But his play as of late has shown why the Avs signed him to a seven year deal.

    Well here we are again. The department of player safety has done it again. A deliberate and vicious hit to an Avalanche player will go unpunished for the second time this season. At the same time they had no problem handing out a two game suspension to Cedric Paquette of the Montreal Canadiens for a boarding hit that was bad, but nowhere near the hit on Bowen Byram. Trying to figure the department out is as confusing as a riddle. I also take a look at the Avs schedule for the month of November. The Avs only play 10 games during the month (6 home, 4 away) and they are all against teams from the middle of the standings down. The Avs should be the favorite in all of these matchups. The problem, they only play two division games (Stars, Preds) so making ground on the teams above them might prove difficult. Going 8-2 or 7-3 over the month is very achievable. Finally, even though this is a hockey podcast, when someone of Von Miller's stature in the world of Colorado sports is traded away, I needed to take a moment to appreciate what he has meant to the Denver Broncos, and why this is the exact reason I could never be a GM in any sport.

    Is Nathan MacKinnon Closer to Returning Than Originally Thought? Is Alex Newhook the New Nikita Zadorov?

    Reports came out late Monday night that Nathan MacKinnon provided a negative COVID test and was therefore en route to Washington to be with the Avalanche. Another negative test Tuesday morning would clear him and allow him to potentially play against the Capitals. Stay tuned to that news as it was surprisingly NOT making the rounds you would expect news like that to be. We do know that Mikael Maltsev and Martin Kaut were called up to the Avs. It remains to be seen if they will actually take the ice, but for someone like Kaut, this is another opportunity to show his ability at the next level. Someone not called up? Alex Newhook. Are we getting to the point with Newhook that Coach Bednar was at with Nikita Zadorov in that he knew the ability he had, he just wasn't utilizing it well enough? Or is this just a young prospect who still needs time to mature? Hit that subscribe button and enjoy! BetOnline AG There is only 1 place that has you covered and 1 place we trust. Betonline.ag!

    Avalanche Fight Back, but Comeback Falls Short After a Disallowed Goal. Kick or No Kick?

    Ain't a hockey season without controversy. Did Tyson Jost kick the puck in to the net to momentarily tie the game against the St. Louis Blues at 4? I think the survey says yes on that. But so did Chandler Stephenson of the Vegas Golden Knights a few days earlier, and that goal stood. Once again, the inconsistency of everything to do with rulings comes into play. Also, the Avs were named as a team who called Buffalo as they gauged interest in Jack Eichel. Why we should not think that has any meaning other than a phone call was made.

    Gabriel Landeskog Suspended Two Games. ESPN & TNT Review. Looking Ahead to St. Louis

    We knew the Dept of Player Safety would come calling after Gabriel Landeskog's hit on Kirby Dach, but the lurking question was if a suspension was coming. It did. Landeskog will miss the next two games for the hit and with the status of Nathan MacKinnon for Saturday's game still unknown, this could be a tougher task than usual for the Avs against the Blues. Kyle joins me for his usual Friday slot and we rate the first week for ESPN and TNT. What we liked, what we didn't and what can they do better. Hit subscribe and enjoy!

    Avalanche Hot Start Too Much For Chicago. Win Opener 4-2

    The Colorado Avalanche set the tone early with three goals in less than 10 minutes, then went on to a 4-2 win in the season opener against the Chicago Blackhawks. Jack Johnson (you read that right) got the scoring going to Colorado, who made life difficult for new Blackhawks goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. On the other end, new Avalanche goalie Darcy Keumper is making Avalanche fans have Grubauer amnesia pretty quick. He was great when he needed to be as Chicago was forcing the issue in an attempt to get back in the game. It was all rainbows for the Avalanche. The power play was clearly missing Nathan MacKinnon, and Gabriel Landeskog delivered a dangerous hit late in the game to Kirby Dach that should have him hearing from Dept. of Player Safety. In the end, it's just how the Avs wanted to start the year. With a win. Now they turn their attention to Saturday to face another divisional rival in the St. Louis Blues Subscribe and Enjoy!
