Talent Analysis

Is an offensive-oriented defenseman. Piche does very well on the powerplay, as he has good puck control and possesses an impressive, strong shot. He also plays a steady defensive game when needed.


Projects as a depth defenseman. Will really need to step up and show he can play at the pro level.  Piche was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the deal that brought Kyle Quincey back to the Detroit Red Wings.

Avalanche Notes & News

by pbadmin

Here are some of my random notes and observations from the Avs season so far.


Unfortunately, I did not get to see as much of the rookies as I would have like to this year. The Avs spent most of their time in Sweden or Hershey and I mistakenly planned my vacation around a failed attempt to check out the USA Olympic practice in Colorado Springs. Little did I know that they would not let me in to watch. So I drove up Pike’s Peak to over look the World Arena and to get closer to the Hockey God’s. I ask them for good things to happen for team USA. Little did I know that less than a week later, patriotism would take on a whole new meaning. What I did see of the rookies were in their 3 preseason games:

Mikhail Kuleshov: By now everyone knows about the impression he made on Dallas Star goalie Ed Belfour. Kuleshov scored two spectacular “goal scores goals” in a short period of time. Both goals were unassisted goals in which he picked the pocket of a Dallas defender and whisked the puck past Belfour before he knew what had happened. After a very moving moment of silence and a great rendition of “ God Bless America” the crowd was ready and willing to show Eddie our love with a big round of BELLLLLLL-
FOOOOOORRRR chanting. Looking down on the bench from my nose-bleed seats, I distinctly remember Coach Hartly discussing some strategy with Kuleshov and he was listening very intensely. To me, this was a good sign that these two flashy goals weren’t going to his head.

Bolt Bits

by Megan Sexton

Lobb to Guelph

2001 4th round draft pick Aaron Lobb was traded
from the London Knights to the Guelph Storm.
A much needed change for the struggling prospect. Through the first ten games of the season,
Lobb posted one goal and two assists for the Knights. Since his trade, he has added two more assists in three games,
both on game winning goals.

“He needed a change,” said London General Manager Mark
Hunter of Lobb. “Sometimes a player
gets in a rut and it becomes an anchor on his back. I’ve been there myself.”

Ollie Slowly Making His Mark

Rookie Jimmie Olvestad has not scored since opening night in
Tampa Bay, but the young Swede is making his mark in other areas. He led the team in hits for most of the
season and is currently ranked second behind Pavel Kubina, with 10 hits in 8
games. While averaging 13:25 minutes a
game, Olvestad is one of only seven Lightning players ranked in the plus side
of the goal differential category.

Invitee Inked & Brother Tags Along

The Lightning have signed camp invitee Gaetan Royer and
assigned him to the Pensacola Ice Pilots of the East Coast Hockey League.Read more»

Svitov, Chistov and Kiril Koltsov forcefully drafted into the Army

by Eugene Belashchenko

On Thursday, October 25, 2001 in the afternoon the Moscow Police visited the hotel where Avangard Omsk was staying after their Wed. game with CSKA Moscow. They took Alexander Svitov, Stanislav Chistov and Kiril Koltsov under their escort and took them to the local military base of the Moscow garrison. It appears that the Moscow Military garison is the body drafting the players into the army. The players are already part of Avangard, which counts as service in the Airborne Forces (VDV), but Moscow’s military priorities superceed that of Omsk.

A likely version that has been suggested is that CSKA Moscow is not doing well and Vladimir Krutov is looking for additional reinforcements. If the players are drafted into the Moscow garison they could play for CSKA to serve their time in the army. Another version is that this could be a move directed at Avangard president Bardin from the political system. There will be an Avangard Omsk press conference on Friday regarding the Thursday incident.
