Few things made me roll my eyes quite like listening to the NBC broadcast crew refer to the San Jose Sharks neutral zone set up as a “teal-picket fence” during their playoff series against the Avalanche. It was the kind of hokey nonsense broadcasts throw at you in order to appeal to a more casual audience and watching the…...

The Avalanche entered the summer with a large number of unsigned young players who they were going to have to find a way to sign while still navigating the free-agent field. After signing Vlad Kamenev yesterday, Colorado was down to two unsigned RFAs and decided to get a headstart on next season. That headstart comes in the form of a…...

When the Avalanche took Bowen Byram fourth overall at last month’s entry draft, it cemented Colorado’s future defense as one filled with stars. When Joe Sakic met the media shortly after, he was not shy about the organization’s intention to give Byram a long look in training camp this year. With injuries to Erik Johnson and Ian Cole, it would…...
