Can they play the same way this season and win the same way they did last season? Yes, in theory. The shooters will have to score at the same rate. Varlamov, 26, will have to be great again. I would expect Varly to continue to do the same thing, Roy said. Hes in his age where I think its time for him to shine, and I believe its only the start. But the Avs might not play quite the same way, and they might not win (or lose) the same way for a whole host of other factors. They have changed personnel. They parted with guys like Stastny and P-A Parenteau and added guys like Jarome Iginla, Daniel Briere and Brad Stuart. They have young stars with plenty of room to grow. They will adjust their system. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/what-analytics–colorado-avalanche-coach-patrick-roy–gm-joe-sakic-don-t-need-fancy-stats-215624446-nhl.html

Morning Bag Skate: Teuvo Teravainen to miss preseason game vs. Red Wings on Thursday – Yahoo Sports

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey. Another preseason contest for the Blackhawks on Thursday night — one game in, I already feel like we’re all just hoping to make it through the exhibition schedule unscathed. There probably won’t be as much coverage of the matchup against Detroit since it doesn’t appear to be on TV, but we’ll still be keeping up through various channels. Onto the news. **Teuvo Teravainen returned to practice Wednesday but he’s already been ruled out for the preseason game tonight (CSN Chicago) **Stan Bowman has generally done a very good job as GM, but Sam Fels points out some of the recent missteps that have led us to our current cap crunch. (The Committed Indian) **The Rangers will be without top center Derek Stepan for several weeks after he suffered a broken leg during conditioning tests (Blueshirt Banter) ** Pavel Datsyuk will also be missing a few weeks due to a separated shoulder. The Red Wings just can’t seem to catch a break lately. (Pro Hockey Talk) **The Islanders are giving Mikhail Grabovski first crack at filling the left wing spot next to John Tavares and Kyle Okposo (Newsday) **How will the Rangers overcome losing Stepan? ( Puck Daddy ) ** Jordan Subban took the high road after The Vancouver Sun ran an offensive caption below a photo featuring the Canucks player. (Pro Hockey Talk) **Well, this certainly would’ve been interesting. The Jets and Flyers were apparently “close” to a big deal involving Evander Kane over the summer. Who knows what the particulars of that trade might have looked like. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/morning-bag-skate-teuvo-teravainen-110003204.html
