"Half the game is mental, the other half is being mental." - Jim McKenny


Not much to talk about in the last week. And by not much I mean nothing to talk about. But thanks to some great feedback, I have a different plan for this week. Lets just say you guys should enjoy the following clips. (There may or may not be some scum smashing) I went through the last couple of seasons to compile some of the better fights and there are a lot of beauties out there, but I am only including a couple this week. The Avalanche had a couple of days off too rest the hands so I will update this if anythings happens tonight. Thanks Again for reading, and hopefully this gets you pumped up for tonight, and the future.

First, A classic to get the blood flowing a bit. The Avs score a beauty goal, and a tussle occurs after the play where Sakic and Gilmour come out all on their lonesome and things get settled between them from there. The best part is the announcer...

The next one is also a beauty from a few years back. A little tussle after the face-off leads to a milehighhockey member requested spanking of the scum. I will let McLeod do the talking via his fists of fury, as you know, there can only be one.

My own version of PROSPECT WATCH:

From October 28th, 2010, David Liffiton tries to make an impression that will last on the Avalanche, and on Tim Jackman. I thought this may be appropriate for the game on the 26th....
