Look at our lineup, compare it with the rest of the teams in the western conference, and tell me where the Avs possibly fit in the top 8.

You people expect way too much out of this piss poor roster, and honestly think that all it takes is a coaching change.

I've seen teams with much less do much more.

Look at Phoenix last season. Dave Tippett is a genius. That's what I want.

It's laughable that you think Phoenix's roster last year was inferior to our own.

Dream scenario: The Avs get a top five pick, Kroenke (either one, doesn't matter) fires Lacroix and the entire management staff, new management staff brings in a new coaching staff.

I'd definitely take a bad start if it assured that Sacco would be gone, but I really don't think he has that short of a leash. He has been here 3 seasons already, with 2 of them being pretty bad. If he had a short leash he would have been gone by now. If we just barely miss the playoffs, I fully expect Sacco to be back next season.

->The new staff drafts a bust and hires Granato.

Hey DU fans, is there anyway we can get George Gwozdecky? Even as a tigers fan i know he is already NHL caliber and that is the coach I want.

I like it. Sounds almost perfect. But right after "Dream scenario" should be: Kroenke sells team to someone who gives a ***** about hockey and cares about his new team. Then that guy fires entire staff.........that's my dream scenario.

I gotta say, I wouldn't mind seeing the "Old Guard" shown the door, as long as the Scouting Staff could stay. Sakic could as well...and I don't have a problem w/ Billington...and thus far I have nothing against Sherman...

Really I just think that it's time for the Lacroix's to be told "thanks for your services, we wish you well in all your future endeavors."

They will never do that to Pierre Lacroix because he IS Colorado Avalanche hockey. He brought them 2 Championships.

And I have said it before and will say it again. Be careful what you wish for with ownership. It isn't easy finding an owner as stable, and with as deep of pockets as the Kroenke's. They aren't perfect, but stability is important.

Randy Carlyle was availiable, but Avs didn't get him. Instead, Sacco got a 2-year extension later on.

Sacco's gotta go ASAP.

I don't have a problem w/ Kroenke, but I do have a problem w/ blatant nepotism.

And I will forever be grateful for Pierre Lacroix because of what he did in bringing 2 Stanley Cup Championships to the Colorado Avalanche.

But I do think he needs to legitimately retire, what with the health scare he'd had within the last couple of years.

And I'm sorry, but I don't think Eric deserves ANY place inside the Organization, and the day that he is inevitably named General Manager is the day I have to ask myself the question of "Why do I love a team that makes it so hard to love them".

That is ridiculous. Theirs was much better. Look at their defense again. And their forwards, with the addition of Vermette was at least as good. No question they had a better team.
