The Ti4T Watch

Hopefully the little hiccup on Sunday against the Blackhawks will be just that, and the Avs can get back on track on their quest for a really high draft pick tonight when they take on one of their prime competitors, the Atlanta Thrashers.  That's right, say it out loud with me, "The Avs and Thrashers are comparable teams this season."  Didn't that feel good?  Of course, the house channel and pretty much everyone over at Kroenke central would lead you to believe that "all is well" in Avland, but by now, everyone, except for probably Peter McNab, knows better.

The best place to see exactly where our boys in burgundy and melancholy blue stand is here ... but you'll need to scroll way down.  Ottawa beat Toronto last night (unfortunately not in OT) to move more firmly ahead of us.  Currently the Avs hold down the 4 spot, but number 2 is certainly within Tyler Arnason's reach.  But unlike Tyler, can the Avs actually win this battle?  A loss tonight in regulation will bring the Avs within one measley Bettman point of le Thrash.  Keeping faith in Tony G., I think the boys can get it done! 

Darcy Tucker's fan club (Dan Winkler) and I will be at the fiasco game tonight.   Look for one Av fan holding another Av fan wearing a Tucker unipron in a headlock in the upper deck.  We won't be hard to spot amidst the empty Can.
