Starting to make me mad...

As the free agency for hockey starts on Wednesday, rumors about who's going where are shooting out like crazy. On the NHL website, they made a list of the top 50 free agents this summer.

Click here to see the article.

I agree with the top 50 list. Two Avs player's are on the list, they are Joe Sakic and Ian Laperriere. As I read about what they thought about Joe and Ian, I started getting soo mad. They said about the same thing for both players. They said that Ian and Joe were too good of players to stay with the Avs because the Avs are "rebuilding" as a team so they need to go to places where they can actually win. What the heck? If Joe stays one more season, the Avs aren't going to trade him for anything in the world. I know the stupid Canucks are trying to get Joe but it's not going to happen. According to everyone, Ian is already as good as gone but I don't think the Avs would trade him either. They both have helped the Avs soo much and the Avs wouldn't get rid of them.

I know the Avs didn't do good at all last season but why does everyone keep saying that they are "rebuilding" because they haven't done good the last few seasons? One season that they didn't do good and everyone counts them out for everything. And saying that our best players aren't going to stay with the Avs because the Avs aren't good enough for them, that is just plain rude and stupid.

At least the Avs fans stick with their team through the good and the bad. Unlike other teams (red wings) whose fans only love them because they win!!!

Before the season ended for the Avs, I read somewhere that some guy from Canada would love to buy the Avs and move them to Canada. Ok, not going to happen! One: the avs aren't going bankrupt so there is no reason to move them. Two: they did bad one season! Not a good enough reason to move them! And three: they would have to go through one angry fan to move the team. Can you guess which fan that is?

I brought that up because I was thinking about the Phoenix Coyotes who are going bankrupt and might get moved to Canada. It's sad and if that happened to the Avs I would die. I kinda like the Coyotes too and I don't want them to move. It would be a sad day in the NHL if that happened.

Oh and just another thing, according to Adrian Dater (sports writer in Denver), he met with the Avs new GM and Sherman said that the Avs staff knows Joe's answer about next season. If they know, why can't they tell us?!?! I would love to know if joe is staying or not!

Life with dad 2...

Since I am in Texas, there is no way I am able to annoy my dad like i usually do (messing up his hair! haha) so I found a way to make up for that by calling him everyday! This is how the phone conversation goes.

I call him, he doesn't answer because he is in a meeting so I hang up. A few minutes later, he calls me back.

Me: Hello
Dad: I got out of my meeting. What do you need?
Me: I just wanted to say hi.
Dad: Oh, any Avs news?
Me: Not yet.
Dad: Ok, I have to go back to my meeting!
Me: Ok.

I call him everyday to annoy him and this happens almost everyday. It makes me laugh really hard! It's fun to do that! He knows I love him though! :)

A little bit of good news!

The Avs have finally signed someone to stay with the team!!! Cody Mcleod, who was our third leading scorer last season (he usually isn't that high up in the scoring sheet because he likes to fight but he did a good job last season!), got signed to a 3 year contract with the Avs! Now I love Cody Mac, but I would really like the Avs to sign some of the bigger guys! Joe Sakic, Ian Laperriere, David Jones, Peter Budaj, Andrew Raycroft! Please sign them!!!!!

I understand that we are most likely only going to sign one goalie, if any, but please please, sign Budaj to a new contract! I would die if Budaj left (yes, I know I have said that before but it's true!).

Joe spent last of last season recovering from a surgery for a herniated disc in his back, and three broken fingers from a snow blower accident (don't ask) and he played 15 games and half a shift the whole season. Joe is not only the captain of the Avs, but he is the heart and soul of the team. He is loved by the coaching staff, his teammates and Avs fans and if he decides to retire, we wouldn't know what to do. He has been out captain since we became a team and we wouldn't know what to do. I think Joe wants to stay one more year, but the question is; is he able to?

Ian Laperrire is loved so much by Avs fans! He has his own fan club and that fan club made t-shirts that say "It's all about Lappy." He is our assistant captain and even though he is our teams fighter, everyone that has met him says he is one of the nicest guys on the team. I thought that Lappy was a definite yes for a new contract,but then I read this article;


David Jones and Kyle Cumiskey are two of our younger dudes that have helped out a lot when we needed them to. David Jones was more of a regular and Cumiskey was called up when we needed more defense. Jones was a good scorer and helped out a lot on offense. Cumiskey was a fast defender and the coaches even had him play offense if they needed him to. Last season, they both got injured around the same time and had the same injury. They both had shoulder surgery and were out for half the season. Both are free agents this summer and I have a feeling we won't get rid of them.

In 10 days, the free agency is open and the trading stuff starts. Who is going to stay and who is going to go is the big question but hopefully the Avs will be able to keep the players that need to stay on the team.

And another thing, apparently, the Avs aren't trying to get people like the Sedin twins, Dany Heatly, Vincent Lecavalier, or Marin Hossa. All of these players are wanted by NHL teams and they are all awesome scoring dudes but yet the Avs aren't trying to get them. Why? They could help us so much but we aren't. So who are they going to get? We will have to find out in 10 days. I am so looking forward to that! NOT!!

I m trusting Greg Sherman (Avs new GM) to make good choices so he better!!!

Stanley Cup

The playoffs are finally over, the Stanley Cup was given out and the season is officially over. Does the season end with good news? Depends on how you look at it.

Heck yes the season ended with good news! The red wings did NOT win the Stanley Cup!!!!! WOOHOO!!! The Penguins won in game 7 2 to 1! The game was great and the Pens won it in detroit! How great is that? It's sad though because the wings were up 2-0 in the series and still lost! In my opinion, it is more funny than it is sad. Game 7 was such a great game and the wings almost sent the game to overtime in the last 10 seconds. I have to give them credit, it was a great game (except for the goalie is still not good enough to be named). With 10 seconds remaining in the third period, Fleury made about 4 saves, and not just good saves but saves that a normal person wouldn't be able to save. Fleury won the game for the Pens. Talbot did too since he did score the two goals for the pens. I wanted to scream so bad when the Pens won but I didn't since Audrey was sleeping.

The bad news, the season is over! That only means two things:
One- no more hockey to watch!!!! What am I supposed to do when there is no hockey!

This is how my life is. Hockey season is the best season and then, I get to wait for hockey season to start again (and people think I am obsessed with hockey! lol).
Two- Off-season is also the trading season. The coaches and general managers sit down and decide who to trade and who to get to make the team better. I know that it's just business, but this kind of business sucks. Especially when most likely they are going to trade your favorite player!

Anyway, I am so excited that the Penguins won the Cup! It was cool to see Sidney Crosby (Pens captain) hoist the cup because he is the youngest captain in NHL history to hoist it! It was really cool. And Malkin won the Conn Smythe Trophy for the best player this season. They just had an awesome season!

Well since the season is over and I don't get to see the Avs till September, I guess I will just have to sit back, relax and worry about who is going to get traded :(

I haven't written in almost two weeks now because it is finally summer and I have enjoyed being lazy! 3 days after school ended, I left with my sister and my niece and Came to Texas with her. That was 2 weeks ago and I am still in Texas, hanging out, playing with Audrey, eating yummy food that my sister makes and going to the pool. Life is great!

Although I am not a huge fan of Texas because of the bugs, and the humidity, I am having so much fun! Even though I do miss my parents, and my friends. I also miss Colorado, the mountains, the cold summer, and my own bed!

What am I going to do when I get back to Colorado in July? I know exactly what I am going to do! I am going to move into my new room!!!!! My brother moved out and I get his old room! I can't wait! My dad is letting me and my friend paint it and move into it! Even though he gets to move the furniture. My new room is going to awesome! Plus I will have more wall space to put all my Avs posters and such. I also get to put this huge blue chair in there too! It is going to be sweet! Can you tell I am excited. I totally am!

P.S. Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals is on Friday night, Penguins vs. red wings! Please cheer for the team that doesn't have the old farts! :) Go PENS!!!!!!!
