Well, it's not like everything's great in Colorado. Prospects who start their pro-career on the Lake Erie Monsters don't seem to develop well. Barrie, the only dman who played there and survived this year's training camp, has been a healthy scratch in most of the games. Promising kids like Sgarbossa, Malone and Elliott are struggling in the AHL and Siemens who was picked in the 1st round and was one of the best defensemen in this year's Memorial Cup tournament has zero points in 8 games in this season.
The bad coaching at the AHL level will hurt the Avalanche in the long run if no changes are made.
