Sad news from Denver, as the Rocky Mountain News has announced it will be folding tomorrow. Not being a resident of Colorado, I'm sure there are others who can chronicle the local impact much better than I can. I do know, though, that the RMN's hockey coverage will be sorely missed. I've long felt that Avalanche fans were incredibly lucky to have two top-notch papers covering their team. Sadly, it's now down to one.
I wish Rick Sadowski, Aaron J Lopez (who I think may have already left, as I haven't noticed his name on any recent articles) and the rest of the RMN staff all the best and offer my sincere appreciation for many years of excellence.
