    Do the Colorado Avalanche have D-men to fill tougher minutes?

    The 2016-17 season was not a flattering one for the Avalanche defense corps, but new additions will be changing the lay of the land. Francois Beauchemin, Fedor Tyutin, Patrick Wiercioch, Cody Goloubef and Eric Gelinas have moved on, leaving behind space for new faces and a heavier load for the likes of Barrie, Johnson, and Zadorov. How should we expect individual utilization of the current group to change in 2017-18? One of the biggest ways d-men are predisposed for success is via zone starts. Unsurprisingly, the team’s most offensively-gifted rearguard Tyson Barrie led the group in offensive zone starts last year, while stay-at-home veteran Tyutin received the least. Here is a list of TOI and

    Sunday Brunch: A loss in Minny, Boikov is out and Phil Kessel rules

    There’s nothing uglier than preseason hockey. The AValanche and Minnesota Wild proved it last night. We sat through the whole game so you didn’t have to. Here is a recap of the game that saw the Avs powerplay go 0-8. As the Avs try to widdle their group of defenders down to 7 for opening night, one guy that won’t be in the lineup is Sergei Boikov. The 21-year old that played last year with the San Antonio Rampage separated his shoulder Thursday night against the Dallas Stars. There is no timetable for his return, but this seems like it will be a big setback for Boikov’s season. Later this season, the Avs will be traveling to Sweden to play a two-game series with the Ottawa Senators. Fans have
