A Few Previews

I suppose the Avalanche will be the ultimate underdogs this season.  Nobody is expecting them to win many games, and Peter Budaj has apparently slept with everybody's wife, not just Joel Quenneville's. 

TSN didn't have much to say other than a rundown of the lineup, but it does offer the preposterous nonsense that Peter Budaj was usurped by Jose Theodore because of something other than the Avalanche front office's bottom line.

The Hockey News spews forth the ridiculous 14th place finish.

And Scott Burnside at ESPN (already mentioned in a recent FanShot), offers this amazing gem:

Do the Avs, once home to the greatest goalie of all time in Patrick Roy, now boast the worst goaltending in the NHL?

Yeah, Scott, 31-10-7 sure is terrible goaltending.  How will the Avs ever survive?

Scott Burnside is officially the laziest hockey "journalist" in the world, as far as I'm concerned.  Watch some games and do some research, Scotty.  You're just mailing it in at this point.
