Well, the Avalanche are off to another hot start on the road this season. Let's hope that they don't fall as hard as last year. I think our goaltending will help us finish, at the very least, better than last year, possibly in the hunt for a playoff spot.

I like what i see so far.... haven't followed hockey closely in a couple years but am getting back into it because of no NBA

Varlamov has been playing great and so far its looking like a good trade

Gabriel Landeskog has played great so far and the line with him and O'Reilly have played very well

the most impressive thing is 4 straight road wins

also Varlamov has been lights out in the shootouts

still very early but so far so good still got a long season but at the end could be fighting for a possible playoff spot

game tonight on versus...glad i wont have to find a stream online

I'm not surprised by how the Avs have been doing. A team that's better than the experts thought, and I've always liked Varly. Needs to stay healthy.

The Avs were my favorite team before the Thrashers, and have always been my 2nd team during the Thrashers tenure, so I think I'm just gonna have to jump back on the bandwagon now that my NHL team got stolen. Crying or Very sad It's too painful to watch the Jets. Love the players that I knew and hope to see all of them do very well... but it's still too emotionally painful for me right now.

Loved Joe Sakic and Roy, that's how I got on the Avs bandwagon originally.

Anyways, go Avs!

Whats going on with Mueller for you guys? He was put on the top line with Hedujk and Duchene and now he's missed the last couple of games. Is it Concussion related stuff again?

Yes, he hasn't suffered another one but they're being careful about it.

Joakim Lindstrom has filled Mueller's skates pretty well so far. Hopefully we found a diamond in the rough with him (led the SEL in goals and second in PIM last year).

David Jones is so underrated. He can really fly and has developed a nice scoring touch. He will score 30 goals if healthy (though that has been an issue throughout his career).

I'm hoping we don't see yet another letdown after a hot start. (Knock on wood). Either way, I'm liking the future of this club. I have said since the trade that if Varly stays healthy, it will have been worth it. The fans really need it after suffering through a decade of post-Roy goaltending.

Great start and road play by the Av's.. The wave of young talent has been great.

I've been a fan of Jan Hejda for a while now, and thought it was one of the better "off the radar" signing's this off season. I haven't seen alot from him so far this season, so can you guys post how he's been?

I wanna see Mueller healthy. Dude is a good player when he's on the ice.

Oh be sure that all of us agree with you. He was amazing after coming over in the Wolski trade (more than a PPG in the last stretch of the season). It's too bad we let Fleischmann walk, he was the same way.

Reports are that Mueller has been a full participant in practice and should return to the team soon. We could really use him - hopefully we can get back on track after that wild game in Dallas.

Amazing. Thought he wouldn't suit up for us again this year.
