Five Thoughts for Friday

Five Thoughts for Friday

Matt Duchene, Marcus Hogberg and more featured in this week’s Five Thoughts In this week’s five thoughts, we examine the possibility of Matt Duchene to Ottawa, roster decisions ahead of the regular season, plus more. Let’s begin! Is Matt Duchene the Right Fit? The hot topic in Ottawa over the past few days has been Matt Duchene, as the Sens are reported to be in hot pursuit of the star forward. Recent word is that Guy Boucher wants him on the team as well, and as we know with recent signings (Pyatt, Thompson, etc.), he’s had a large influence on Dorion’s moves. But do the Sens...

Game Day Preview: Avalanche vs Golden Knights

Game Day Preview: Avalanche vs Golden Knights

The Vegas Golden Knights make their first trip to the Pepsi Center Could the summer BE any longer? With Matt Duchene trade rumors hanging over the team for months (years), the preseason couldn’t come soon enough. Off-ice questions still exist, but at least now we have game action to distract us. Coming off of the worst years in franchise history, Colorado Avalanche fans had to suffer through one of the more boring offseasons in memory. Expected to make moves to re-shape a team that lost 56 games last season, Joe Sakic did very little. Outside of the draft, the Avs’ biggest acquisition...

Morning Flurries: Duchene breaks his silence, Avalanche make first cuts, and Joe Sakic reflects on last season

Colorado Avalanche The Avalanche cut 5 players from training camp today. Hugo Roy, Ben Storm, and others will pack their bags and head home. [MHH] Matt Duchene broke the silent treatment he has been giving the media at camp today. He says that “a lot got blown out of proportion” and when asked what will happen if a trade does not pan out, he said he is “just going to take things one day at a time.” [BSNDenver] The Pepsi Center has received brand new LED lighting this offseason. The new system should save as much as half of the amount of energy used by the system before it. [NHL dot...

Matt Duchene looks miserable (and the internet went nuts over it)

Matt Duchene’s promo picture got leaked on Thursday... and the internet-at-large had a lot of fun with his perceived misery It’s been the story of the summer; the Colorado Avalanche and star forward Matt Duchene are likely nearing the end of their storied relationship. After being drafted by his childhood club with the third overall pick in 2009, Duchene went on to put up 418 points in 572 career games (and that’s just what he’s done so far). Poor results for the club in the last few years, though, have left the Avalanche and general manager Joe Sakic scrambling for a solution to...

It looks like the Avs don’t plan on having Matt Duchene serve as an assistant captain this year By now, you’ve almost certainly seen the picture of Matt Duchene during Colorado Avalanche media day - you know, the one where it looks like he was just told he can never fish again. Yeah, that’s the one. This one picture set off a fire storm on social media about Duchene’s attitude towards the team. He definitely looks like a man that does not want to be in Denver. He looks upset, almost like he’s sulking - leading to talk about Duchene being a distraction for an...

Morning Flurries: What happened on day 1 of training camp?

Matt Duchene is NOT a happy camper Day 1 of training camp is in the books and...well...not much happened. To simplify: To recap:Duchene is at camp, Zadorov is not— Mile High Hockey (@MileHighHockey) September 14, 2017 A wild Matt Duchene appeared! It was questionable as to whether the unhappy center would report to camp or not. I am not going to explain as to not beat a dead horse, but the point is, Duchene is here and ready to play ball. Maybe. As you can see, he WAS NOT happy about it. TFW everyone said you’d be traded months ago and you’re still here #Avs...

Kiszla: Gone in 15 seconds. Good vibe at Avs camp? Matt Duchene killed it. Trade him now.

Tense and irritable, Matt Duchene walked through the Avalanche locker room doors on the first day of training camp as a prisoner of a bad hockey team. Duchene acted like he would rather be anywhere but here.
