yeah dude the Avalanche are doing extremely well this year, possibly another Stanley Cup?
the avalanche have been one of my favorite teams my whole life, and i too thought they would blow this year
direct quote from me in their season opener "too bad they're playing the sharks and don't have joe sakic they are gunna get killed, they are going to be horrible" then i was suprised to see them win, and continue to win to this point
sorry that you feel this way, especially when canucks take it home this year
i'm from Chicago so i'm a big Blackhawks fan, and is till can't over their loss to Dallas. Did anyone else see the dump in that shot off the side boards at a 90 degree angle and went in? it was the most rediculous thing i've ever seen. Huet should have been able to stop it but seriously what a way to blow a game. FUCK.
Wow was that sarcasm?
Matt Duchene is an excellent talent don't get me wrong, but lets not get ahead of ourselves here. Matt Duchene isn't PPG right now, and Sid had 102 points in his rookie season.... Im not sure about Duchene's leadership skills as I don't follow the Av's and didn't follow him closely in Brampton, but Sid led his team to the SC Finals 2 years in a row, in the second year leading them to the cup and the ring. There is also talk about him being the captain for team Canada in the Olympics.
Im not saying Matt Duchene won't be an amazing player in the NHL, I have high hopes for him, he shows great promise. And Im sure he is gonna burn the Canucks more than a fair share of times.
All Im saying is comparing Matt Duchene, even in the long run, to Sidney Crosby is shooting pretty high. Im thinking more of a player like Simon Gagne, hopefully minus the injury history hopefully.
Here's a great thread about Hodgson and Duchene growing up and and realizing the dream of making the NHL together, pretty good read.
Go Canucks Go.
