Thank you Freudian! People complain about how bad O'Byrne and Zanon are at moving the puck, Gaunce is worse at moving the puck and he is worse defensively than these guys as well.

Out of all the problems with Avs today, Stastny is about the last one.
Where did I bash him? I said he was mediocre(comparing the rest of the avs today, is pretty dame goood). Where did I say anything wrong about his game?

I don't speak bias fluently so I didn't know "mediocre" was a compliment.

I think Avs basically gave up after two periods and decided to roll the lines to stay fresh for tomorrow. Olver and Bordeleau had 10+ minutes this game.

Didn't Kings have an insane record with not losing when having the lead after two periods that Avs broke? They're normally a very good team sitting on a lead, so I'm not sure I blame Sacco for this strategy.

I hope Avs were paying attention though. Kings played pretty much a perfect third period with the lead. They were on the right side of the puck and did enough to just let the clock run down.

Desperate times will cause people to take desperate measures... like copying things that are far too true.

I can't remember who made the comparison the other day, but Gaunce plays a lot like Holos and that will be his downfall. If you have literally no offensive abilities, then you better be a bruiser to make it in the NHL. Like Holos, Gaunces shies away from contact and doing so, he'll always be pushed around and abused with spin moves no matter how good he is positionally (which he's not).

Yup. Our only loss in over 120 games when leading after 2 periods.

Anyway...I had to miss this entire game.
I know we lost 4-1, with Hedgie scoring the only goal.

Anything else of note happen?

Anyone else injured?

I would have said the Avs' collective pride, but apparently they waved "Bye, Bye" to that a while ago.

I had to watch it on a crappy stream w/ the most god-awful announcers in the biz (apparently the Kings crew).

They made me miss the musings of Haynes/McNabb, because at least, when it came to the other team, Haynes/McNabb would shoot it straight, and more often than not put a good spin on how "great" the other team's players were.

I do have a problem with Parenteau the last week or so and it is getting really frustrating to me.

He always gets in the puck in a prime position, but screws it up,

1) He forces the pass, which leads to turnovers.
2) He passes the puck too hard going out of reach to his target.
3) He passes the puck too soft going behind the reach of his target.

It's never right on target.
I haven't been a Stastny fan the last couple years or so, but he has been really solid the last handful of games or so. He has been much better than Duchene the last two games as well.

I have it on good faith that someone from the team will be injuring their foot shortly after shoving it up Sacco's ass.

I blame Landeskog!

We were actually doing pretty good, got our offense going, couple of points outside a playoff spot then BAM he returns and we tank again!

It's him!

Seriously though how did we play?

Rushed home to catch the game, was watching for 2 mins when LA score their 3rd goal so turned it off.
