Duchene was invisible again. If he isn't back with vengeance next year, you have to wonder if he's all that motivated.

4-0 rest of the way and we still have a chance, anything less and season is over. We're basically down 0-3 in a BO7 series.

He wasn't invisible, he was injured and playing clearly under his abilities. He can't hit the next gear to get breakaway speed, a few instances I saw him try to cut inside and he simply couldn't hold the cut on a defender and had to go wide.

People need to get rid of the Duchy scapegoat talk. He wasn't even supposed to be playing at this point in the season but he's trying. I'd rather have 50% Duchene out there than a Kevin freaking Porter.

Yes. He always has to potential to do something special. He has the ability.

Exactly. The guy returned from injury 3 weeks early and even admitted he would be playing through pain, but just wanted to get back out on the ice and contribute. Duchene has heart and is trying to help out his team. And yes, I would rather have a 50% Duchene than Porter. Anyone who says otherwise... well, I just do not know...

He had a rough year with injuries and confidence issues. The summer should do him some good, both physically and mentally.

Duchene is trying to be physically involved lately. That's reason enough to let him play. He'll benefit from it down the road, even if he is woefully ineffective at the moment.

In todays NHL, you have to be able to play through more physical contact than after the lockout.

I have a question and I wasn't sure where to ask it so I hope this will do. I wanted to watch some of the pre and post game interviews from last nights game. Specifically I wanted to see what McGinn had to say since he's still one of my favorites. Where do you guys go to find these online? I checked the official avalanche website but didn't find anything. I know the sharks ones are posted on CSNbayarea.com do you guys have a tv or other site like this?

Thanks.
