AVALANCHE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Joe Sakic now has full GM title with Avalanche; Greg Sherman assistant GM

The Avs quietly changed the titles around a bit of Joe Sakic and Greg Sherman over the summer. Sakic retained his biggest title – executive vice president of hockey operations – but he now has the title of general manager with the Avs. Greg Sherman had the full title of general manager last season, which was always a bit awkward because he did not make the final call on hockey...

Avs look to build off momentum in Roy's 2nd year behind bench

  Jarome Iginla took a few wrong turns and got lost heading into the office for his first day of work. So new to town, it's understandable the Colorado Avalanche forward can't quite navigate his way to the Pepsi Center yet. His direction on the ice, though, is impeccable. That's why the Avalanche brought his leadership to Denver, hoping the 37-year-old can take them...

MacKinnon needs to choose his shots better

Every season we tune in to endless streams of scouting, draft and prospect coverage and hype, gleefully anticipating the “next one”. The NHL and the surrounding media attention builds up teens into idols before they skate in an NHL game.

2014-15 Colorado Avalanche Preview: Nathan MacKinnon Ready To Join NHL’s Elite

Colorado Avalanche Need To Think Of Success In The Playoffs

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post, Here's the Avalanche's biggest problem as veterans prepare to report for physicals Thursday: It's difficult to come out and declare that you don't want to be as successful in the regular season as you were a year ago.

Questions For The Colorado Avalanche Before Training Camp Opens
