It really feels like we're underachieving, even other teams fans after we lose games say things like "I don't understand how Colorado is THIS bad.".
Hmmm. Where to begin.

Erik Johnson as a #1 Dman.
Semyon Varlomov playing like a scrub.
Greg Zanon playing top pairing minutes and who is -15 on the season.
Matt Hunwick playing top pairing minutes.
Relying on Tyson Barrie to play somewhat capable defense which he is in-capable of.
John Mitchell on the 1st line.
Jamie McGinn playing top 6 minutes who is a -14 on the year.
Cody McLeod on the 3rd line.
David Jones playing like a bum.
The whole Ryan O'Reilly disaster and this team folding as soon as he came back.
Injuries to Landeskog, EJ, Stastny, Downie, Wilson etc.

It doesn't help when your NHL roster has maybe 3 or 4 top 6 forwards. The rest would be lucky to be 4th liners on good teams. Add that to maybe 1 or 2 NHL calibre Dmen infront of a goalie with a horrendous .901 save % and people are surprised why this team is bad??
