TweetThe Avs have lost four of their last five, and they are 2-7-1 in their last ten. Their six regulation wins is tied for fourth worst in the league, and the six points they've earned in ten home games is the worst mark in the NHL. The optimist in me is screaming to stay the […]

BREAKING: Winning at Home is Pretty Important http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/07/breaking-winning-at-home-is-pretty-important/ Mon, 07 Nov 2011 16:14:38 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/11/07/breaking-winning-at-home-is-pretty-important/

TweetLast night's 2-1 loss to the Calgary Flames dropped the Avs to 1-5-0 at the Pepsi Center. That's two points out of a possible twelve, folks. Luckily, a 6-1-1 road record has kept the Avalanche season afloat, and if they could figure out how to score goals at home, we might just see them in […]

Duchene’s Slow Start: No Need to Worry http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/19/duchenes-slow-start-no-need-to-worry/ Wed, 19 Oct 2011 17:18:20 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/19/duchenes-slow-start-no-need-to-worry/

TweetArguably Colorado's most talented player, Matt Duchene hasn't exactly gotten off to a stellar start this season. In six games, Duchene has just one goal, two assists, and only eleven shots on goal. He ranks tenth on the team in ice time and just sixth among forwards. Duchene's stats look even worse when compared to […]

Thoughts on a New NHL Season http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/06/thoughts-on-a-new-nhl-season/ Thu, 06 Oct 2011 14:30:54 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/10/06/thoughts-on-a-new-nhl-season/

TweetSome bold (and zany) predictions on the new NHL season. Such as: -The Avalanche will begin the season without a captain for the first time in team history. But only because they're afraid Ol' Man Stastny will cry when Paul isn't the choice. -Chuck Kobasew is the new second line left winger. That experiment will […]

Avalanche Free Agency Verdict http://ballhyped.com/2011/07/03/avalanche-free-agency-verdict/ Sun, 03 Jul 2011 21:28:41 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/07/03/avalanche-free-agency-verdict/

TweetOver the last two days, many Avalanche fans have been highly critical of GM Greg Sherman's decision to give up a first round draft pick (one that might be a lottery pick next June) for a goaltender with injury woes and very little experience. I have to admit, it's been hard to wrap my head […]

EXCLUSIVE! (Other) Guys the Avs Might Draft http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/23/exclusive-other-guys-the-avs-might-draft/ Thu, 23 Jun 2011 12:45:39 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/23/exclusive-other-guys-the-avs-might-draft/

TweetLast year, the Avalanche shocked the draft by selecting center Joey Hishon with the 17th overall pick. Hishon was ranked 55th by the Central Scouting Service and many believed that the Avs had gone too far off the board with the pick. Now, however, Hishon looks like a real steal for Colorado, as he put […]

TweetPeter Budaj won't be the answer and if the hockey gods have any mercy on Avalanche fans, Brian Elliott won't have the chance to be. The question: Who the heck is going to be the goaltender for your 2011-12 Colorado Avalanche? A bunch of names have been thrown out there including Vancouver's Corey Schneider, LA's […]

TweetFor those of a certain age, it is likely that a childhood memory includes a very important, often life-changing question: Which Pokemon do you choose? Professor Oak would ask you the damn question at the beginning of every game, and with the exception of a few versions, it was always the hardest question to answer. […]

TweetIt's been a brutal season. Absolutely brutal. I don't need to explain any further. In the darkness, however, there has been some light; specifically, David Jones has been having a great (and generally healthy) season. With 23 goals, Jones has already surpassed his previous career high (10 goals in 23 games last season), as well […]

Why Peter Stastny’s Comments are a Bit Harsh http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/23/why-peter-stastnys-comments-are-a-bit-harsh/ http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/23/why-peter-stastnys-comments-are-a-bit-harsh/#comments Wed, 23 Feb 2011 18:38:44 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/23/why-peter-stastnys-comments-are-a-bit-harsh/

TweetAlright, Peter Stastny, I'm sort of with you on this one. I'm not the biggest fan of giving up Chris Stewart and Kevin Shattenkirk, either. But I'm also having a hard time separating my subjective emotions and my objective opinion. Are you? The eldest Stastny was quoted (h/t to Dater for picking it up) as […]

Former Avs Return, Trade Talk http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/22/former-avs-return-trade-talk/ Tue, 22 Feb 2011 16:48:44 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/22/former-avs-return-trade-talk/

TweetNever has the "curse of the former Avs" been more threatening than tonight. We gave St. Louis two offensive threats, and I'll be shocked if one of them doesn't get a mark in the goal column tonight. The Avs, now a distant 11 points out of the 8th spot, are basically playing for their spots […]

TweetLate to the game in offering my thoughts on the huge deal that went down early (EARLY) Saturday morning. St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Saturday the club has acquired former first round draft choices Chris Stewart and Kevin Shattenkirk along with a conditional 2011 or 2012 second round […]
