  • Klee: As Broncos enter draft week, boring is good

    Published: Mon, May 5, 2014

    DENVER — If we're going off what happened to the Broncos in the Super Bowl, their needs in the NFL draft are pretty obvious. They need someone to not snap the ball over Peyton Manning's head. They need someone to prevent Manning from being assaulted. They need someone - maybe...

  • Klee: Time to believe in the Rockies? Not until Tulo smiles

    Updated: Fri, May 2, 2014

    DENVER - On the day of a game, Troy Tulowitzki endures a pregame routine that would thrill a CrossFit coach. His formula of lifting, stretching and proper nutrition suggests the professionalism of a five-star chef grilling a $60 Filet. Smiles must wait. Here, in front of a locker...

  • Klee: Avalanche season about discovery, not Game 7 defeat

    Updated: Thu, May 1, 2014

    DENVER — This one will hurt, at least for a few weeks, at least until the big picture sharpens into focus. The Avs weren’t supposed to lose like this. Not these Avs. This is how they win, on a goal that steals the heart of their fans and punches the gut of their opponent. Instead,...

  • Klee: Avalanche needs a hockey hero in Game 7

    Updated: Wed, Apr 30, 2014

    DENVER — As a teammate ribbed Nathan MacKinnon about his neon-orange sneakers in the Avs dressing room Tuesday, the term "hero" didn't spring to mind. Heroes could wear neon-orange sneakers, I suppose. There's no hero dress code. Let's remember, though, these guys are hockey...

  • Klee: Avalanche must win series the old-fashioned way

    Updated: Fri, Apr 25, 2014

    DENVER - The Avalanche entered the final minute of their Game 4 loss on a power play. Boy, it sure would've been nice to have Tyson Barrie on the ice, eh? "You can't dwell on him not being there," forward Paul Stastny said. Time to stop dwelling, Avs. To capture Saturday's Game 5...

  • Klee: Broncos schedule prediction: Much like past few seasons (for now)

    Updated: Thu, Apr 24, 2014

    DENVER — What's a prediction without an apology? Sorry, Seattle. I stink at predicting Super Bowls. No Red Hook for me. But predicting the regular season? Straight cash, homie. Last year, I missed the Broncos' final record by one. When the NFL released its schedule, I had the...

  • Klee: Avalanche-Wild fiasco is black and white

    Updated: Wed, Apr 23, 2014

    DENVER — If you are really good at playing dirty, you have a future in professional sports. Cheat and then lie about it? Ryan Braun returned to a standing ovation at his home ballpark. Top a Sports Illustrated poll as the NFL's dirtiest player? Hines Ward got the cover of the...

  • Klee: Escape-artist Avalanche still needs Varly

    Updated: Fri, Apr 18, 2014

    DENVER — The Avs stole the Central Division, broke records and brought playoff hockey back to Colorado. The School of Roy added a must-read chapter in coaching. But if the Avs fall short of the Stanley Cup finals, would they be disappointed in this season? "Seriously? I mean,...

  • Klee: Johnson's empty-net rescue allows Avs to notch Game 1 win

    Updated: Fri, Apr 18, 2014

    DENVER — Just as Pepsi Center got weird in a trance of white pom-poms and noise, the hockey hero emerged from the bench to hug a teammate. No, not Paul Stastny. He was clutch, too. Stastny's two goals nudged the Avalanche ahead of the Wild, 5-4, in overtime of Game 1 of their playoff...

  • Klee: Colorado Avalanche led by power of positive thinking

    Updated: Thu, Apr 17, 2014

    DENVER — If the Colorado Avalanche roar through the NHL playoffs and reach the Stanley Cup finals, it will be on the back of pink elephants. "If someone tells you to think of a pink elephant, you're going to think of a pink elephant," for-ward/philosopher Ryan O'Reilly told me....
