I promise I’ll dress a little better for these things from now on. But yes, that is a Winter Classic Philadelphia T-shirt I have on.

This week’s Avalanche Minute has me summing up the Avs’ moves on free-agency and giving my opinion. By the way, happy birthday to Joe Sakic. He’s 48 now.

    Improvement over the first session .. these are great for more passive fans who want the insight and get out. Great idea to whomever came up with it.

    Continuously refreshing the homepage for the next bleeding article, even if news is broke somewhere else. Nobody even comes close to the level of insight this team can bring.
