The Avs havent given me (a long time fan of theirs) a reason to stick around and continue cheering for them the way they're running this organization in the last hand full of years.

They will lose more fans soon anyway not just me, if they haven't already.
If you change those bolded words then your statement is correct.

"Fans" don't leave a team because of performance.

Kipper's had a rough start to the year. Thus, he's good for a 23 save shutout tonight.

Avs lose 2-0 and Sacco is fired before the home game Saturday.

You think we'll get 23 SOG tonight?

Firing a coach during the season doesn't seem like something Avs do.

Quenneville didn't get a new contract after the season.
Granato was fired in the summer (twice).

I think you have to go back to Hartley to find a coach they fired mid-season.

I wasn't being 100% serious however last night there was a lot of backlash against the Avs on Twitter and their facebook page with tons of fans ripping on them. So at least they gotta have some sort of clue that people aren't happy with the current product at this point.

I made a twitter account yesterday for that sole purpose.

Final score tonight: Vancouver - 3, Colorado - 0.

Surprised it wasn't more considering the AHL level talent on this team and a junior level (at best) coach.

I am pretty sure they get that after every loss. And even some wins. haha. It is social media, and it would be uncouth for the Avs brass to even pretend it exists. That is for the media types to look after.

I try to think of a prediction for this game that wouldn't break the site rules, but it's hard. I guess "bite the pillow" could be interpreted in several ways.

Honestly, I can't see us winning this one. It's Calgary and we're playing back to back.

Brodie's gonna just walk in and score like Barker did against us last season.

Btw, Matt Duchene needs to speak up like he did against his team in Sweden. No way were they worst. He needs to say something and not worry about it, what are they gonna do, trade him? He's their only top 6 fwd right now.

I'm debating skipping this potential snooze-fest.

Please don't over estimate Duchene's time in Sweden. On a grade from 0-10 with 10 being best I would give him 6. He did ok but not much more, I was a little bit dissapointed in his defensive play. I did have higher expectations for him.

Yes, he did speak out in media, explaing that in the NHL at least 5 players from his team would have been sent down to AHL (stating swedish players are too comfortable).

Pavol Stastny
Paul=Pavol in Slovak language.

It's back to back for the Avs so expect a good first period followed by two bad ones. 5-2 Flames.

You left out Cervenka from the poll.

Friend, I've supported each of my favorite teams in various sports since I've been a kid, through good times and bad and there's nothing that will make me stop supporting the Avs. Real fans don't quit on the team when going gets tough...
