Here we are once again with another edition of Caption This Photo! Last night, the Avalanche and Kings played a pre-season game at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It’s the annual game in Las Vegas and the Avs won the game 4-3 in a shootout. But the great part in about spending the weekend in Vegas is that there is much more to do than watch a hockey game. On Friday night, members of both teams participated in the Luc Robitaille/Shelter for Serenity Celebrity Poker Tournament. It’s a great charity event and also game us some interesting pictures of NHLers in front of the poker tables. Take the one above picturing Robitaille, Tony Granato and PJ DeLuca, a member of the Avalanche staff.

Here’s the original caption from Getty:

Exciting stuff, right? No. Not at all. So let’s see what you guys got!

I’ll get us started and please leave your own captions in the comments!

Granato: Luc, you had a pair of twos! That was clearly a hand to go all-in on!

Robitaille: That is the LAST TIME that I ever take poker advice from you. Get away from me.

Granato: Now, see you’ve got 7-5 off-suit. You want to slow play this hand for sure.

DeLuca: Hey… Is that Jessica Biel by the craps table?

You always know it’s going to be a good day when you wake up early and find a note in your inbox from David Singer, the man, the myth and the legend behind Hockeyfights.com.

Today was one of those days: “Some GOOD fights tonight,” was the message in my inbox earlier today.

If you’ve ever watched an NHL fight on YouTube, it’s probably because Singer recorded it on his massive bank of TiVo systems, stripped it and uploaded it for all to see.Continue Reading

NHL’s Future on Display in St. Paul Saturday

Filed under: Avalanche, Wild, NHL General, NHL DraftI’m not sure about you, but I’ll be spending my Saturday at the XCel Energy Center in St. Paul.

The Wild are on the road, but the NHL will still - sort of - be on display at “The X”. Instead of the NHL’s present, it’s the NHL’s future.

Saturday marks the first ever Minnesota College Hockey Showcase. It’s an event many years in the making that’s designed to bring together the four Minnesota-based teams in the prestigious Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

It’s also an event that will bring 30 NHL draft picks under one roof, along with one who is almost a lock to go in the first round next summer.

It’s not often that you’ll see a regular-season event in college hockey that shows off this kind of talent. I know that many of you don’t follow your favorite team’s player development, but if you do, this is going to be an enjoyable day.

It’s not Tuesday, and this is only about four WCHA teams, but I’m still going to give you a breakdown of Saturday’s action after the jump.Continue Reading
