    Question for the podcast that maybe you can ask the Kroenke folks about. I know they closed off a good chunk of the media access at the top of the Pepsi Center for renovations last year. As someone who sat below all that, I was disappointed when they removed most of the tvs, as it was clutch viewing during tv timeouts. I know this year, it appears to be usable space again and looks kind of a like premo area (I may have spotted a fancy chandelier). What are the Avs doing with that new area above the 340s?

      Season ticket holder here — its a new party suite. It looks pretty fancy but I’ve only seen it in use maybe twice. Opening night againt Minny and last week against Nash. You know how money-hungry KSE is, but they’ve probably grossly overpriced it so that interest in booking it is minimal.

    Interesting podcast. Surprised you guys didn’t mention Bowers’ 2 goals including the game winning OT shortie on Saturday. He also was the net front screen on their first goal, I thought he actually deflected it in on first viewing. He’s pretty much the entire BU team just as you guys said. Game’s on ESPN+ for viewing. I predict he will spend very little time if any in the AHL. Something about him makes me think he’s going to come in and really surprise people. He’s a finished looking hockey player with a presence about him.

    If Makar continues what he’s doing at UMass we’re going to be so teased by the time he shows up that first game will be a freaking event. Maybe not Forsberg’s first game in the ’02 playoffs level of anticipation but people are gonna be pretty jacked at the Can.

    Connor Timmins hasn’t come up in a while… he went home, supposedly to recharge… is he in danger of entering Joey Hishon territory? How much of a setback is it for him to lose the past 6 months of development?

      The problem with Joey Hishon was that he was always a bust candidate since the day we drafted him…. Those were the Rick Pracey days.

    A question for a future podcast.
    Do you think the Avs would ever consider Mats Zuccarello as a viable trade pick up? He’s a dynamic player in my mind.
    Thanks.
