Valentine's Day Massacre Redux Injury Pool

Doug Pensinger

Know who's going down tonight!!

It's simple, really: Somebody pissed off somebody or something and the Avs have to pony up a penance of flesh IN EVERY GAME. Tonight's lineup is posted below along with the odds of them suffering from a specific, debilitating injury during tonight's game with the Minny Wild. I used player nicknames because they're awesome and so am I!!

First up? The "O":

Dr. Jones - Drowned by my tears of frustration - Even
