Before joining BSN Denver, A.J. had been writing for and briefly managed the popular Avalanche blog, Mile High Hockey. A.J. has been providing detailed practice reports, training camp coverage, and in-depth looks at the Avalanche and their divisional foes since 2010.

    Without being part of the negotiation, we have no idea how it went. For all we know the Kings said no to everything you’re saying they should have gotten for Iginla. Trading is a two way street, it’s not going to the market to buy some cheese.

    the worst trade this season is JJ and Cole Hamilton for Dater. what an absolute joke this move was. I mean I get it, you’re trying to bring in a “hockey” guy, but this tool? this decision is going to turn around and bite BSN in the butt. I mean just look at Daters first few articles and it tells you all you need to know, he lacks passion and true insight for the team. this used to be my absolute favorite Av’s podcast but I guess I’ll have to find something else. which is a shame cause I ABSOLUTELY LOVE AJ HAEFELE. I think AJ is smart and passionate and honest while really caring about the team. I wish you the best of luck AJ, I really do cause I think you’re great, but Dater is absolute trash.

    Wanna talk about bad trades? How about JJ for Dater? The equivalent of trading Rants for Burrows. I don’t know what happened behind the scenes at all, but this is horrible. I used to love this pod cast and listened to it every time it was on…Now I can barely stomach it. I like AJ and remember when he was back on MHH and blasted Dater like everyone with a brain, now he’s stuck with this shmuck? You guys fucked up.
