nobody's looking at the coaching and they should be. Q is soft and his record speaks for itself. he had some formidable teams in St. Louis and folded like a paper plane when the hardware was up for grabs.

sorry we won't be seeing the avs coming to Hockeytown in round one since matching up with Edmonton will be a much tougher test, especially with the travel.

Happy Easter

Where do you think Q came from in the first place?

I just got back in town from Calgary. I was not too happy to see the Avs get shut out by Kipper, but the rest of my trip was a blast.

Since the calendar turned to 2006 I went to Invesco to see the Broncos lose the AFC Championship game against Pittsburgh, DU hockey went 0-4 in the games I attended, including that horrible season-ending Sunday loss to Minnesota St., and the Avs went 0-4 in games I went to. I have first round playoff tickets and will give them away since I'm officially a jinx.

I did see the Colorado Mammoth beat the Calgary Roughnecks on Saturday night, so I'm not sure if that counts as breaking my jinx. I'm not going to test it, though.

So how did their arena compare to others, Breck? Did you have to sit in one of those cheesy wooden seats? And how'd you like that flame thing shooting out when they scored? I do think it's cool, but man it sucks to see it happen!

As i recall, Q's only NHL head coaching experience was with STL. He was an assistant for the Diques/Avs, before that, no? At any rate, the guy's just another mid-grade coach, IMO.

after the thrashing of my ducks, i am now afraid of Thorton and the Sharks. Ducks had a horrible road trip and i think ust play good tonight to get that great momentum back. Ducks vs Calgary is looking more like it now.

Dammit, hoping the ducks would get a quick exit from the playoffs, if they play a canadian team then I would hope the Ducks win and get blown out in the second round.

You should have started being scared long ago. The Sharks are scary.

Right.

I wonder if they'll be allowed to piggyback ride the opposing players up and down the ice this post season.

I think Forsberg's back is still sore.

They're pretty adept at making it sound that way anyway.

SID HITS 100!!!

Just a few seconds after the assists on the Surovy goal a great pass to Malone for the goal.

3 assists on the night with a period to go.

WOO HOO!!! The crowd is going wild at the Mellon.

Youngest player ever to hit the century mark.

Crawford used to have Maple Loaf connections as he used to be head coach of their farm team in the AHL in the early 90's. If the Canucks dismantle the team and ditch GM, coach and Naslund/Bert, Toronto could be the likely destination of Crawford and perhaps some of the big name players to boot.
