I'm trying not to read too much into it, but you have to admit, it is odd for a coach to say such a thing.
Agreed. There hasn't been a player yet that I can think of that made it out of Tony's doghouse alive - but I think Sauve's different. He's a rookie, but more importantly he's PL's rookie (via relationship with Bob Sauve, etc.) so may get more rope before he's completely hung out to dry.

His performances have been miserable and ok (in that order) so maybe he's due to move up the scale to good?

I think the Avs will wait until 35+ games into the season to see what they have with Sauve, then make a trade based on what he's done.
