No, we're just excited to see this team not look like the group of crappers we've been watching for the last month.

Wolski has been quite impressive in this game. I am glad for the Avs fans on this board that they were able to bring him up for the playoffs.

One thing that I liked was that when the Stars tried to get physical, and give a big hit...whether they were successful or not...the puck was headed back towards Turco.

There's still a lot of games left, so nothing's been decided, but I don't think the Avs could have had a better opening game. Especially after the lackluster end to their season.

One more thing. In Turco's defense...if he didn't make some pretty nice saves the score would've been about 9-2.

Wow, we dominated. Throw the seeds out the window (if you didn't already, this being the NHL and all): this is going to be a series. Unless we keep blowing them out, of course.

Well, I would just like to say.

WOOT WOOT WOOT

But I don't expect the Stars to look this listless for long... Just hope 5 goals worms into Marty's head a bit. You know they are going to be "here we go againing him" in Dallas.

Hell of a performance today by the Avs. Had they put up more 60 minute efforts like the one we saw today during the regular season, they'd have likely been opening the playoffs at home. Where has that Avs defense been all season? They were rock solid today.

Wojtek Wolski, the pride of Poland, with 1 goal & 2 assists in his playoff debut.

Hopefully this carries over to game 2.

It's one game, but it was a wonderful performance. It's not so much that the Avs were great defensively, it was their continuous offensive pressure. To me, Dallas looked surprised at what the Avs brought to the table. Dallas will certainly make adjustments. I know Turco will get some of the blame but the forwards didn't help with the back-check and the defenders were swiss cheese.

People forget that the Avs were the fourth highest scoring team in the NHL. The problem all season has been the defense and inconsistent goaltending. That's what makes the Avs so dangerous, if they can tighten things up and get the goaltending, they will not be an easy out.

Dallas will look 100% better on Monday night.

Somebody asked about Wolski. Once Wolski played 10 NHL games, his contact would count agaisnt the cap. Wolski played the first 9 games with the Avs and then he was sent back to juniors. Part of it was the affect against the salary cap, the other was that Wolski needed to work on certain parts of his game. After he was snubbed by the Canadian World Junior hockey team, his coaches in Brampton put him at center and he just took off. He won four straight OHL player of the month awards.

Now that Wolski has been called up and played in his 10th game, his salary wont count against the cap, but the first year of his three year contact has been used. Therefore, he'll become a RFA after 07-08 rather then 08-09. Yet, if he continues the solid play, it'll be worth it. Make no mistake about it, Wolski is the best prospect the Avs have had in their system since Alex Tanguay.

No. What it means is the Avs made a statement today against a team that most of the "experts" said would completely dominate and outclass them.
