Mile High Hockey

Hot Streak or the New Ryan O'Reilly? - Mile High Hockey
However, the question becomes which Ryan O'Reilly is the real one? We already know that he's a solid forechecker that takes good care of the puck and will work harder than any other player out there. But is his offense here to stay as well? Should we be re-evaluating his ceiling or is he destined to come back down to earth? Do we have a future elite two-way player on our hands, or is this all just wishful thinking?

This Week in Avalanche Prospects - Mile High Hockey
The Monsters make do without their starting goaltender. Calvin Pickard and Duncan Siemens received some bad news. A recent draft pick is having a solid season in the Ontario Hockey League. Bitter rivals faced off in Boston. Kent Patterson keeps on rolling.

Mis-management? - Mile High Hockey
An Unmitigated Disaster opined that he had noticed that Avalanche PK specialist Daniel Winnik seemed to be seeing a lot of ice time in the month of November. So much ice time that he was eclipsing talented players like Paul Stastny, Matt Duchene, Milan Hejduk, and David Jones. I wondered if his numbers were inflated due to the penalty kill time he sees as there would likely be no other justifiable reason for such a discrepancy.

Kevin Porter Suspended Four Games
Czar of Discipline Brendan Shanahan brought down the hammer, making an example of Porter’s knee to knee hit on Vancouver Canuck David Booth. While there has been debate about whether or not it was misconduct worthy, let alone suspension deserving, the NHL decided it was time for a Shanaban.

Season Review: Games 1-21 - Anyone But Detroit
During Preseason, Ryan Wilson was on the bubble along with Matt Hunwick and Stefan Elliott for the 6th defenseman spot. He beat out those two and he has been the Avs 2nd most consistent player, leading the team with a +3 and tied for the team lead in assists with 11.
