I keep saying we should tank and then I keep looking at the standings and seeing we are only 4 points out...

Hawks fans are whining about Stastny's elbow on the main board.

Am I the only one who thinks it was more accidentally than suspension.

Even I think Dater has completely lost it tonight. What's the deal!?

Been saying that for a long time around here. It's not going to happen.

Whatever. We're a bad team but every team in the NHL can beat every other team on a given night. Chicago's streak has to end sometime and we're fortunate enough to have a second crack at them. They were there for the taking tonight and hopefully the boys are as excited as I am for another chance at the Hawks.

After the liberties Shaw has taken with other players, they're not ones to talk.

It's like he's trying to find every way to make himself look like a hack. Varly made a bunch of huge saves in the early, middle, and end of this game, he was just under siege with guys running around down low and getting lots of chances on that GA.

I hope if they do, Mitchell gets the promotion to the 2nd line center role.

I follow Dater for 1 reason and that's because he knows more than me so it's not a bad place to get some inside scoop on the Avs since it's not coming from anywhere else.

Anything he says however I take as complete bull until someone else with a bit more credit says it too!


I really feel though that something is/has to happen soon! This mediocrity has gone on far too long, we either need to make a trade or start firing some guys!

It looks like we played our balls off again nearly beating the best in the league and stopping the longest ever points streak but once again we come up short.

I agree with you, except that it is not the longest ever points streak.

Trade stastny for a goal scoring winger and we could pretty quickly be a contender.

Tanking isn't going to work. Edmonton is and has been stuck in non-playoff purgatory for years and are only now as good as the Avs. We need some ****ing FREE AGENT signings, and more than just PA Parenteau and David mother ****ing Jones.

Curious how often does your coach put 5 forwards on PP?

Seems like recipe for disaster

LOL NO... There is still that little problem of Zannon, Hunwick, and O'Byrne making up 5.65M of our defense budget...

We need both a winger and a top pairing defender, we can only get one with a trade. The other we have to get through the draft. Considering that it takes defenders twice as long as forwards to develop. I would say it would be smarter to use the draft or free-agency to add that and try to get the defender through trade.

Especially against a team like Chicago... Our powerplay has sucked anyways, so what do you do? Make it more prone to costing us instead of actually creating plays, and being creative tactically.

With EJ and Wilson out our only capable defenceman for the PP is Barrie so I don't actually mind that coaching move.

He's only been doing it recently, but why he thinks it's a good idea is beyond me. Just shows you how little he cares for or trusts his defensemen. On top of leaving them vulnerable defensively, it clearly overworked our forwards. I don't see why it's so utterly sinful to put Barrie on the top unit and SOB on the 2nd one.

On a side note I the only one who thinks Palushaj is better for us out there than Hejduk? He was pretty solid tonight.
