Barrie isn't ready. Not even close.

The Wild were a bit lucky but we probably deserved to lose.

On to the next one.......hopefully with O'Reilly in the line up.

I like Wilson, but he isn't consistent enough to be a top pair Dman.

Game 1. Lets see it some more before we call it and change things up. I say leave it so long O'reilly's not here.

Unless I'm mistaken, Landeskog was paired with O'Reilly early on in training camp and never really left that line. I don't recall Landeskog being tried out with Duchene

I think they was for like 3-4 games. My mistake if I'm wrong.

We may be bad enough to miss the playoffs, but I doubt we are in the running for Mackinnon or Jones, even with the revised lottery weighting.

Yeah. That defense is not good enough. I think the forwards are fine.

Johnson is not a PP guy. They need to get an offensive d-man that can log big minutes.

That game was well worth the 9 month wait. Same feeling as last year when the Avs came out flat against the Red Wings.

The defense needs help, but the first two lines did not supply much offense tonight and we lack forward depth.

Yep on Barrie, and I don't think we see ROR anytime soon

I think the Wild, once they gel a bit more, will be the team to beat in the division.

We look a lot like before; show signs of being a really good team... only to follow it up with lazy play and foolish mistakes.

The Avs were unlucky tonight, but you also got that gut feeling the wheels would come off once they gave up those 2 quick goals. GOTTA SCORE EMPTY NET GOALS.

If Mitchell's in our top 9 then we're in trouble.

Damn good day for a few recent ex-Avs so far.

It's only the first game of the season but Barrie looks like the same guy from last season.
He's still only a 21 year old kid playing a difficult position. He's looking alright but some plays leave you scratching your head though.

And I agree, this game shows we need RoR on this team. But, we knew that already.
Yes, clearly we need Paul Martin at $5M and Matt Carle at $5.5M...they will make the difference.

EVERYONE agreed we had a hole in the #2 spot and essentially the #3 spot on our defense. The first game comes and our guys get exposed...is anyone really surprised??

Our FO will address those holes when the opportunity arises but throwing a bunch of money at UFAs is not the answer.

That's the problem with this team. We're too good for the lottery, but not good enough to be a perennial playoff team. We got Duchene and Landy, we need one more.
Either way, EDM will end up in 9th place, and will win the lottery again anyways.

Duchene won over 50% of this faceoffs. Always a good thing.

I thought Mitchell looked pretty good as well.

EJ played well and is the only one of our defensemen who didn't do something incredibly stupid. Unless I missed it.
