I wouldn't exactly call him a non factor, he hasn't scored but hes playing well defensively, winning draws and making some good plays. He just hasn't been as dominant the last couple games.

i guess non-factor was the wrong words to use, but he hasn't done his usual take the puck behind the net and try to make a play out of it.

Fun stat of the day.

Avs are .400 when leading after the first period and .571 when leading after the second period. I'm not going to check each game but it feels like when always get outshot badly when going into a second or third period with a lead.

It's partly an energy issue. Avs get outworked, which means our back- and forecheck become worse and we end up in our zone and our mighty defense get pinned down.

And if Avs are up 3-1 and the other team scores, you can see the shoulders slumping.

It's a troubling theme we've seen too much of the last three-four years. The players and coaches have to become much better at playing with leads.

Wow, that's weak by the ref. The game is over, why call a penalty? Is it going to change something? Swallow your pride and take it. You had a bad game. No need to be on a power trip calling penalties after the game.

Much like cops, they have a quota. They get paid by how many penalties they give out...

It started to happen before Landy got back, this is at least the third straight game where Dutchy has faded.

Yeah.

I remember seeing a stat come across the Altitude score board in OT saying "first shot since 0:58 of the 3rd period" I believe.

They had 1 shot in the 1st min of the 3rd period?

Then what did they do? Did Sacco pull out the old Sacco wall tactic?

"Ok guys we have a lead in the 3rd period and we are NOT giving it up! I want everyone to lie on top each other in the crease and make a wall! Heck yeah!! I'm awesome!"

That 3rd period... yikes. It was if Anaheim just decided to wake up and play some decent hockey for a third of the game; that's all it really took. We were hopeless.

With Barrie being the best D playing last night and into the future, we are totally hopeless.

I had a problem with the ''into the future'' part of your post, I took it as if you've said we're screwed if he remains our best defenseman in the coming seasons.

I meant near future as in the time that EJ is still out. My bad for being unclear.

If the ROR trade is a hit for us the D would actually look really good under a real coach.

ROR - EJ
Hejda - Barrie
Wilson - Elliott
SOB

With Siemens being groomed to replace Hejda on the second pairing. That's actually a really promising D.

Well I thought we played pretty good 5v5 in the 3rd considering only getting one shot on net. Avs seemed like they were too cute yesterday, too many passes on 5v5 .

Yeah Avs games nowadays aren't fun. We're more boring to watch than effin Phx, this is ridiculous. At least other bad teams still put up good games.

Pretty boring game all things considered after the 1st period and part of the 2nd. We just had no killer instinct and looked burnt out.

Still pissed on that call against Landeskog but not against Perry, quite literally decided the game. Not to mention the non-call against the guy that hit McLeod and the dumb decision by O'Byrne in OT to hook the guy because he was out of position.

Then Hunny/Zanon on the first OT PK? HAH. Quinn was over there drawing up some huge plan for this PK with Sacco just watching in amazement, it's pretty clear Quinn will take over this team from Sacco if management ever gets their act together.

That could actually work great. They should just have him change his identity, put on a mask and wig, and re-join the team as a defenseman. He'd probably really help us in that area.

It would allow both sides to save face, so that neither looked like they caved.

This trade could be the best thing for us.
