I'm avoiding this board after every loss from here on out. Insanity reigns supreme when the Avs lose.
I think the only reason there is insanity for Avs fans after losses is because we continue to lose for the same reasons. Its like we never fix any of our problems. If I have to watch another game where Arnason is awful and drags an entire line down, or Tucker trying to make plays like he is actually gifted, or Budaj give up another soft goal, or watch us fumble away power plays and penalty kills, I might have to gouge my eyes out.
If we were fixing problems then I wouldn't mind losing as much...I mean the other teams practice too. But the Avs refuse to do whats right or could help us. Until management is willing to admit that they made mistakes we will continue to lose for the same reasons.
Its obvious that if other teams shut down the Stastny line we have trouble scoring. Its obvious that Sakics line can't make plays because every time Tucker touches the puck he fumbles it away. Don't even get me started with Arnason. We would be much more consistent if we made some minor changes.
I think the insanity on this board would calm down considerably if the Avs and their management, would just change the obvious problems that would make us more consistent, that any light observer can see. I really don't mind the insanity that occurs after a loss, at least it makes me feel that I'm not crazy. And I'm not the only one who feels a certain way.
