Of all ways to be eliminated from the playoffs...losing to the worst team of the league at home.

We need another number one or two d-man. I don't feel comfortable with Elliot or Barrie yet. Both need more seasoning in Lake Erie. O'Brien should go to the ECHL.

I like our forward corps for next season. Especially if Hishon finds a way to get on. With Stazz, McGinn, Downie, O'Reilly, Landeskog, Mueller and Olver and Duchene you're looking at some decent fire power if they can play to potential. I would try to re-sign McClement and even Jones. Then try to trade away one of McGinn or Downie (and Kobasew, but doubt he has any value) for a defenseman. Porter and McLeod can go.

Losing twice to the worst team in the league and choking in almost ever must win game down the stretch shows that sacco isn't fit to lead this team.

As well as Stastny, Jones and McGinn played you can't break that up. If anything you gotta find a sniper that can play with ROR and Lando.

Lee Stempniak?? He is a UFA this year, and has been a good scorer in the past. He is a good skater as well.

IMO, neither one of them should be traded.

I dunno, I think Downie could do well on the 3rd line with Duchene.

Trade a defenseman for Downie, then trade Downie for a defenseman...that makes a lot of sense.

The forward core has talent. Bring back Jones, keep McClement, and just hope Duchene can get it together and they should be fine. I focus on the defense this summer.

If Duchene is on the 3rd line again, then it will be a third straight year of missing the playoffs.

I thought he scored more that he actually has. I thought he scored 30 a couple of times. His stats do look very average.

Ya because he was so great when he was on the top line at the beginning of the year.

I never said he was great when he played on the top line.

What I'm saying is that the only reason he will be on the 3rd line is if he isn't playing well and if he isn't playing well, then the Avs won't make the playoffs.

In the end it wouldn't have mattered with Sharks getting a win today. Not that it makes Avs game better.

Stastny and O'Reilly's lines will get more defensive minutes and Duchene's line more offensive starts. However, I expect the ice time to be relatively equal(with in a couple minutes). Don't let a line number fool you.

The Avs didn't know that when they rolled over at home against the worst team in the league in a do-or-die scenario. And that's the only thing that matters.
