    -Nashville will likely be a playoff threat due to good management, but ultimately doesn't have the cash to build a contender.
    -Winnipeg looks like a house of cards for the near future. Their only production comes from players that get relatively soft minutes.
    They're all better than the Avs, we'll only challenge Winnipeg until they get their shit together.

    Blackhawks, Blues and Preds are on another level.
    Wild are already visibly better and will continue to be so thanks to some of the younger talent.
    Stars need to sort out their defense so they aren't completely unlike the Avs.
    Jets are a joke currently but that blue line has a good foundation. Forwards need to improve.


    I'm just glad they wouldn't go to the Pacific conference under this proposal given the time difference. Would prefer they just leave the divisions alone as they are though, minus swapping Winnipeg for someone in the Central division.

    Dater:

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson will return vs. Chicago Blackhawks

    Erik Johnson will make his return to the Avalanche on Friday night as the team tries again to stop the Chicago Blackhawks' record-setting start to an NHL season.

    The defenseman, out recently with a concussion, will skate a regular shift for the Avs in what will be a sold-out game at the Pepsi Center.

    "It's great to be back, and it was very frustrating being out," Johnson said. "With concussions, though, you have to be careful and I feel good again."

    To make room for Johnson, the Avs will scratch Tyson Barrie from the defensive rotation.

    "He's had a drop off in play the last two games," Avs coach Joe Sacco said in explaining the decision. "He needs to be more responsible in his own zone. Hopefully, it won't be long and it'll give him a breather and a good chance to see the game from a different angle tonight."

    Johnson was close to returning on the Avs' most recent road trip, but wasn't quite there yet. Not quite there yet, still, is Avs defenseman Ryan Wilson, out since Feb. 2 with an ankle injury. Wilson could return Sunday depending how he feels after practice Saturday.

    Semyon Varlamov will start in goal for the Avs. Corey Crawford will start in goal for the Blackhawks, who are 21-0-3.

    it really is a shame that Duchene's career year is going to be pissed away in this travesty of a season

    I don't want to get too deep into conspiracy theory, but it truly makes me wonder if Sacco is in charge of who suits up and who doesn't. Barrie not playing makes so little sense, I'm almost speechless.

    Crap. I felt really bad last night and fell asleep after the 1st period, and didn't record it. I've read that Duchene was a machine.

    First time we've had a top 15 scorer at midseason in forever I think (guessing).

    You have to wonder when Fuckwick is playing over Barrie. Not to mention using five forwards on the PP.

    Dumb to pressbox Barrie on principle, but I hope it at least makes him hungrier, meaner.

    He was. The play/assist on McGinn's goal was pretty awesome. McGinn was coming in on such an angle I still don't totally know how Duchene saw him

    You should probably pull out now then, before you blow your load and get it pregnant.

    Sacco is stupid, he's definitely in charge.

    I haven't seen the game, but I recorded it. I'll probably watch it later today. Good to hear Duchene has a monster game and that he is putting it all together. Kid has worked hard this year and seems like he's maturing quite a bit. Good for Dutchy.

    Lots of criticism to go around on management, but it sure looks like Parenteau was a heck of a signing. A PPG player for a $4 million cap hit is excellent value.

    Barrie a healthy scratch again today against the Sharks.

    There aren't enough bad things you can say about Sacco.
