Make some trades, we need a goalie. Sakic you want to much for Duchene, Nashville is interested, stop wanting a top defenseman. Duchene wants to move, please work with Nashville. Were are all the big trades to make the AVS better. We might need a GM, Sakic is a great player but not so much of a good GM.

He's not a bad pick but with Barrie on the team Hague was a better pick that moves in up in plays smartly but so much better in the back end as for Duchene moving adding d man I think he's going no where
06/24/2017 at 14:43
Why didn't they pick Hague? It seems Avs don't like players above 6ft!

Seems like a good kid and I love his enthusiasm. Sure it's a risk taking a guy outside of the more dominant junior leagues but I love what I'm hearing from him so far.

I sure hope there is a accelerated steroid/protein/weights program in store for his 5'-11", 175 lb size.

06/24/2017 at 03:07
With the first pick in the second round it's a no brainer, go for the 6'6" 215 lbs D Nicholas Hague from Mississauga. Hands down the best defencemen available right now
06/24/2017 at 02:49
Yup no trades lol idk why suckic is so scared to do something.48 pt season and no trades what a joke

Really!? Anybody look into this kid? We have no idea what kind of defense he plays, because he is playing in a league way below NHL talent levels, and constantly is puck hogging to score. We need a true defensive player, not an offensive defenseman who has no history of playing strong defense. Glad we went blue line first, but not sure if we picked the best option there.
06/24/2017 at 00:16
Avs fans are never happy lol, we wanted a D now we got one and people are complaining? What did you want another forward? Nobody in this draft would have made a difference for next year, Makar was a solid pick
yesterday at 23:58
I actually like this pick!! Makar could be the biggest surprise of this draft. His ceiling of potential is very high! He's a dynamic player! He stood out amongst any player at the junior A level by far!! Good pick avs!!

So we lost a third rounder for Gelinas, but it's okay because we got a 4th rounder for Holden, who was protected by a playoff team as one of their better defensemen.
yesterday at 23:40
OK, to put this into realistic terms, in an absolute dream world we just drafted Karlsson 2.0. In a best case scenario we just drafted Shattenkirk 2.0. Most likely we just drafted a better version of Barrie. Questionable #2, but maybe. Either way it'll be 3 years before he sniffs his first NHL game.
I would have skipped him and picked Vilardi.
06/24/2017 at 02:14
It's very frustrating watching other teams make moves to improve their perspective teams. Here we are sitting and watching the AVS do nothing. Yeah the pick tonight is great. He will be fid for our team a few years down the road. But changes need to be made. Last year was miserable. Come on Joe Sakic. Do your job! Make this team great again.

Quit whining about the stupid foot patch. That was the dumbest part of the uniform. Glad it's gone, hopefully forever. There are no yeti in Colorado and it made us look like some lame children's team like the Ducks. Get over it.
yesterday at 22:42
The yeti is not the mascot anymore. Therefore, there is NO reason that they would bring the foot back. Why is this so hard for people to understand?

Hell of a lotta crybaby's here. Whether you like 'em or not, it's just a jersey. I swear, hockey fans are the worst thing about hockey. A little positivity wouldn't kill you.

If we trade duchene we better be getting a mid level first round pick so we can get Callon foote. Don't think we should take him as high as 4th but if we are giving up duchene or Landy and not getting a pick for this guy then we fucked up again. Makar/Heiskenin plus foote would make me pretty stoked. Plus we clearly need some dmen that can show up.

You guys are freaking morons for not protecting him. You really are trying to destroy this team arent you
yesterday at 03:32
This was a terrible decision. Even if Varly returns to form, losing Pickard hurts and we are now in need of a really solid backup. He is a great locker room and character guy.
yesterday at 03:42
Joe... you're going to regret this. Who is our goalie gonna be if (and probably when) Varlamov has another groin issue? Martin isn't ready. I'm literally in shock that you chose to expose a healthy young goalie with promise over a guy who is almost 30 and has groin issues almost every year. McPhee might have even taken him and his 5.9mil salary, and we could get some defense. You were a great player Joe, but this was awful. Shame. Shame. Shame.

Should've liked him enough to protect him... but given the litany of mistakes Sakic has made as GM, I don't know if it stands out from the rest... he's one of my favorite players, and always will be... but he's just not good as a GM... you look at the team we had when he came aboard, and look at the team we have now, it's pretty hard to say we're headed the right direction.
yesterday at 00:15
Joe, if you straight up said that you should have protected him instead of Varly I would have respected you more. Big mistake on your part.
yesterday at 00:40
Pickard will never be a starter and all these crybaby fans can go root for the penguins bandwagon. Don't root for varly when he slays it again next year just like 3 seasons ago.

All the past several years of early round draft picks and STILL the worst record in all of Hockey ... Hmmmmmmm ... maybe a change is needed in the front office FIRST, THEN pick a team!!! The Avs are to Hockey what the opposing team is to the Globetrotters in Basketball, a team built only to make others look good by always losing!!
06/22/2017 at 23:24
Better than mac! Shouldve lost MacKinnon over Picard. And varly should never have been saved. Good luck avs I will say at least you'll look good this year with those aprons gone or that god awful 3rd jersey! I say that as a native coloradoan

What's the sense of this article? The avs will never get him anyway
06/22/2017 at 17:09
I think if we don't draft Heiskanen, we should aim for a winger. Duchene should get traded, sad as it will be, leaving Mack and Jost as our future 1-2 down the middle. On the wings, we have Landy and Mikko. Adding another impact winger would help tremendously
yesterday at 05:31
If Heiskanen drops to us we take em. If not you gotta pick the best player available which is Vilardi. Hoping Avs trade Duchene to Dallas for their 1st and 3rd round pick. Get two top 5 picks to help the rebuild.

If Joe knew Vegas was taking one of their goalies regardless, why didn't he leverage his advantage? Why hold on to Varly who is almost 30 and has only two years left? This team is not going to be competitive for the duration of that contract.. We just gave up our younger, best goalie prospect for nothing. Embarrassing..
06/22/2017 at 03:41
Just a suggestion for the NHL. In the years there is an expansion draft can we add a by-law that exempts only the team that finishes dead last in the league (by a country mile) from leaving players exposed. This helps in two ways. It protects what few assets that dead last team had. It also protects said team from their own idiot GM. I feel this may help the Avs in the future as well.
06/22/2017 at 03:08
You lost two jersey sales that season.. the last one for me was for the tenth anniversary season. Couldn't pull the trigger with such a lackluster 20th and home loss in the stadium series game.

After the season ended and we lost the draft I didn't think Colorado could get any lower. But we just did. Awful management.
06/22/2017 at 00:39
The Avs management really needs to take a look in the mirror. They are such a joke right now. And as much as it pains me to say it, Sakic included. We let a younger and much cheaper goalie go for an injury prone Varly with the same skill level.
06/22/2017 at 01:05
Jordan Quintin Michael Parker Fun fact: The Avs are now so bad, they have just become the first team in NHL history to lose a game in the offseason.

Most stop caring a long time ago. A hapless ship led by a clueless Sakic fronted by the Kroenkes cannot be steered away from the iceberg. Until there is organizational change nothing will change for the better. After years of rebuilding and you still end up with the worst point total in the modern history of the NHL, FB marketing represents profit engineering. Nothing else.
06/21/2017 at 19:46
Wish us avalanche fans can get a deal on them cause last season an the many before, really sucked. Only one good season, only to loose to the wild in the first round. Oh so are we going to draft a defenceman or more offence to go with the no show offence we already have!
06/22/2017 at 15:20
I love my Avs, but I can't get excited about them. Kroenke doesn't care about winning, and it shows. Sure wish someone who cared about the fans and people of Colorado would buy the team and at least try to build a competitive team.
