I don't totally disagree with RIAL. Sakic hasn't looked very good and he has looked slow, especially tonight. I thought he had a good game in Nashville. I suppose it's a bit surprising especially considering he was the Avs best player in their brief playoff run in the spring. You would think his two new linemates would have rejuvinated him, but other than opening night, he hasn't seemed to really click with anyone. You have to factor in age I suppose and perhaps there is some undisclosed injury or maybe its just the beginning of his natural decline, Joe isn't exactly a spring chicken. Personally I think he is in a slump. If he plays hard, eventually the puck will go in. I'm not terribly concerned about Sakic at this point. Yet, this team is really only being carried by one line (AMP), and that will become a concern as the season goes along.
