Just said on NHL Network that St. Louis is winless in it's last 6 in Denver. Didn't know that.

Agreed, I would love to see us grind out a win here if possible.

8pm is an odd start time for a home game.
Also, it's a shame that we'll have to listen to Keith Jones.

I'm thinking of setting my alarm at 5, but then again, I could be watching the CL game, maybe play something, watch PHI-PIT, and then this. A good oldschool all-nighter.
yes backend of a doubleheader on NBCSN hence the later start time

I just can't actually cheer for a tank. Even if my brain knows how sweet it would be to get Seth Jones or Drouin or whoever, it's just so ****ing depressing to ever see the team lose

Yeah but these Avs make losing funny. It's kinda like how my favorite football game of the season was the Cowboys-Browns game because both teams were doing everything they could to lose the game, and steal the defeat from the other team down the stretch. It was absolutely hysterical. That's what watching the Avs play is like.

I really wish this tank ********* would go away. Tanking doesn't do this team any good. These players are supposed to be developing into their primes in the next few years.

Could not have said it better myself. I also want them to suck so we ditch Sacco.

But winning is always fun too!

Well there might not be rivalry or anything going between st.louis and colorado, but I have to admit I enjoy seeing St.louis lose. Mostly because Stewart, but still..

QFT said the same thing in 2011 and said it earlier this year

Wouldn't it be great to have a soldout Pepsi center crowd all chanting, "Stewie, Stewie, Stewie..."?

Thing is they can't really compete when the top pairing is a rookie Tyson Barrie and Jan Hejda, when we're missing our top 2 defenders and our top line from last year, when Hunwick and O'Byrne see significant playing time while the likes of SOB and Zanon fill out the defensive core and Joe Sacco sits on the bench, not enjoying having his thumb up his ass, but not knowing how to redeem the dilemma. The playoffs aren't a realistic target because, of our young core, the only ones playing right now are Duchene-McGinn, Barrie and Varly, and the extra ice time has been great for Dutchy and Barrie. And poor Varly was gunna get beaten up on no matter what this year.

I want us to go out and fight for the win, but we're still going to lose a lot with all of these players missing, so if we get a better prospect to join the young core at the end of this ****stain of a season and we raise the chances of Sacco getting fired, that's a win in my book.

Limping along around .500 with the same management and coaching staff is the solution?
