Martin St. Louis requests trade from Lightning

2

Although it was previous just a rumour, evidently it's now been confirmed. Can't imagine St. Louis in any other uniform. Anyone think there's a chance in detroit he ends up an Av? (I don't.) Edit, probably won't be an Av: "Martin St Louis wants a trade and will only move to the Rangers."

The unexpected yet entirely predictable return of the classic blog featuring commentary on Team USA's travails in the men's Olympic hockey tournament Sochi.

Delicious Icing - Corsi in Context

+

An introduction to team Corsi in even strength situations and how it applies to the Avs. I've touched on this idea before commenting on other posts, but wanted to give a full in-depth explanation to a) actually justify why the numbers I was using are relevant, and b) show that I'm not just talking out of my ass. The Flames turned out to be the perfect team to frame us against, so looks like it was my (statistically) lucky day! This post also has a chart, so it's practically a scientific paper.

Good Article on Cory Sarich

"Nobody is ready to hand him a Norris Trophy just yet, but Sarich has been the Avs' best defenseman in their 3-0 start"

Avalanche Lines

+

Landeskog-Stastny-Tanguay/ O'Reilly-Duchene-Downie/ McGinn-MacKinnon-Parenteau/ McLeod-Mitchell-Bordeleau/ What do we think? Obviously top 2 are 1/1A and will split time, but it is hard not to be excited when your 3rd line looks like that. What do we expect the production to be for each?

Matt Duchene scrimmaging with Sidney Crosby

+

No surprise since they practiced together in the offseason but they may end up playing together during the Olympics "Sidney Crosby and Matt Duchene are both invited to the National mens Olympic selection camp in Calgary. The Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche young guns have been skating together with a group of NHL and AHL players in Halifax. Coach Mike Babcock might consider playing them together as they appear to have a strong chemistry after skating together for the past 3 weeks."

Who has the better young core, Oilers or Avs?

I feel like Bigras should be in there somewhere.
