“@SteveBurtch: @adater Grabovski is in the exact same situation.”/ he sucks too
Well, at least he is passionate about the Avs. The ones that says he hates the Avs are completely off base. Dater isn't ranting any worse than the average poster here. It just looks bad cause he is suppose to be a respected journalist.
O'reilly could have played Toews better but that play doesn't get completed if Mcginn has a stick.
Anyways, for people talking about the draft, we need to take forwards wherever they're close to BPA. We're good at developing forwards, and have Barrie up playing with us and two more guys developing. Forwards can step in faster and can be traded for dmen as well.
If we 4-10 I want a forward, whether it's Drouin, Barkov, Lindholm, Nichushkin, Shinkaruk, whatever.
Yup its coaching 101 when you got the lead in the third on a PP you put atleast one Dman on the point not go for 5 forwards. This loss brought to you by the incompotence of Joe freakin Sacco. Said it last game will say it again he is the worse coach this franchise has ever had. Ever. Playing Matt Hunwick is reason enough to fire him.
Even if Dater is a moron at least he has a personality and will call people out.
Chambers is a guy that states the obvious and toes the company line. yuck
Except for the fact that he calls out people that don't deserve it, like him taking a shot at Varly tonight even though he played fine tonight and has been arguably our best player all year.
If your going to call people out make sure its the ones who deserve it like for example Jones who has been pretty awful all season, McGinn who is getting first line minutes and only has 1 point in his last 8 games, Zanon who is straight up crappy, O'Byrne who has looked like an AHL caliber dman all year, I'd even go as far to throw Landeskog in this category as well as he had one good game, and the rest of the year pretty invisible, which isn't good enough for the captain.
All the above would be good choices if you are going to call someone out, but yet he makes an a-hole comment about one of our best players who if it wasn't for him we probably wouldn't have even been in the game. Smooth move Dater you deserve a nut punch for that one.
The more I stew over this one the more I want to dump stastny and jones. I feel like jones could go to a contender for a pretty terrible return(I'm okay with it). Take whatever we can get for stastny. Hopefully a #2 dman. Even if we had to add.
