So as worried as I am about the Avs' suckluster preseason performance (including, but not limited to: a pitiful powerplay, inept offense, questionable defense, injuries to Mueller, Hejduk, and Kocheese, comprehensive television coverage and sweet marketing plans), I have to say that right now I don't care about any of it, because the long-awaited season starts today!!
So, what are you most excited to see when the defending Stanley Cup champs get embarrassed by our (even younger than last season) young upstarts tonight? What are you most thrilled to watch unfold over the course of the 2010-2011 season? What are you hoping to see? For what/who do you yearn?
I want to see some true CGDS mayhem! I'm itching for some Mack Truck hittin'! I'm praying that Quincey is the BMF we grew to love and not the waste of flesh we learned to loathe. I'm eager to meet Foote's grandchildren. I'm hoping Claude Lemieux suits up and plays on the 4th line after the reunion celebration.
So embrace your overly optimistic inner fan and let's get ourselves intoxicated on excitement! The Avalanche are back!!
