Calgary is not the team we need to out tank, it's the Eastern Conference Avalanche we need to out suck.

Also thanks Bricky, and don't worry I got a billion more awesome songs for whole season.

Well the fact that teams only play within their conference this year will help colorado. We will be facing the Sharks, Hawks, Blues ect... all season long... so good timing for Seth I would say

I don't think we are a last place team, although I do think we are bottom five.

I think we get to chose between Barkov, Drouin, Ristolainen and Maybe Mackinnon.

We may not finish last, but if we win the Lottery we draft 1st overall, new rule in the CBA

Missing Landeskog, O'Reilly and Downie. Back to back game, starting our backup and on a 3 games losing streak. It means we'll easily beat Calgary right?

True I just don't see us winning it. Let's hope.

Yea I don't see us winning it either.

But to be honest I firmly believe any player in the top 12 or so of this draft will be to prospects and good NHL players. Whatever we do we should not be moving our first round pick this year, and if we do suck at the deadling, we need to move the likes of Jones/Kobasew/Stastny/Hejda for picks as high as we can. Stastny should be able to fetch a 1st + a Top 4 Dman, Hejda and Jones could fetch late 1sts from desparate teams.


BUT Hopefully, Sacco is fired soon enough and we turn this ship around before its too late. Its still relatively early in the year.

Honestly, i'm down to just keep Sacco and tank. This team still needs a lot of help.

I think were still in the minority here, but I agree with this.

Would be much easier to handle tanking a shortened season then an 82 game season. And this draft has a tonne of talent.

McKinnon or Jones on this team(Jones particularly) would do wonders for this team.

Duchene Landeskog Sgarbossa EJ Jones Varly for the core. With surrounding pieces such as McGinn Siemens, Downie, Barrie, PAP.

Can I hope for a 11-10 game? If we were interesting to watch this would be a lot easier.

Imagine we come last and get the overall top pick. We then trade Stazz and maybe Barrie, Elliott or Siemens to a team for their pick being the second overall, and we get BOTH Jones / Mackinnon.

I hate sacco, but if management is going to fire him I want them to do so after the season. The avs need that first pick more than 11th place in the west with a interim coach.
