07:19 AM ET 05.24 | The fiery new coach and his stolid boss, Joe Sakic, are quite different, but they now share in the same job description: winning games in Denver. The Avalanche had to play semantic games, carefully outlining the organization's decision-making hierarchy Thursday in announcing [Patrick Roy's] hiring as vice president of hockey operations and coach. Those were hints of the potential awkwardness. ... [Roy] wanted assurances that he was more than just a coach, a position the league treats roughly with the respect of a disposable razor. He got them. Roy won't expect to have, and won't accept having, only the coach's traditional marginal say in organizational decisions. It's up to the former teammates to make it work.

Been a long week, friend.

May have spent half of it trying to find a certain video of a certain tub of lard inhaling narcotics. May not have. Who knows.

LOL - Just who could afford enough crack to get him high?

Pierre and his son Eric have screwed up this team so bad the past years that it can only get better.

I'm feelin' it...

A final break from the old logo that had hints of the North Stars in it.

Unlike that damn Mooterus - looks like they got this one right.

Had a bad storm go through here two days ago and the internet was down all day yesterday. I wanted to post this: The Wilkes-Barre Penguins beat the Providence Bruins on Wednesday night 5 - 0. In doing so the Pens became only the third team in AHL history to come back from being down three games to none and win a playoff series. Next stop the Syracuse Crunch for the Eastern Conference finals.

Don't like it. If they want to dis-associate themselves, and I'll guess that retaining the "Stars" name has to do with that football team down there....why not just go blue/silver.
Pittsburgh has all of their teams black and yellow....
Sick to death of black Uniforms. La's...Anaheim...AWFUL
