What? At least half his goals are from the slot.

I was talking about his chance right now just coming down the slot. He peeled off to the corner.

Think he was referring to the last play where Mitchell had the puck in the slot and wouldn't shoot.

He has negative passing skills and offensive awareness.

I never understood why a guy (forward) that breaks his stick stays on the ice. He's completly useless. Go to the bench and get a new stick, it takes 10 seconds. But noooooo, stay out there for 45 sec for what is essentially a PK.

Lol were playing Chicago next. We need to start discussing who is better, Jones or Drouin.

There needs to be an attitude change immediately.

Sacco or somebody on the coaching/management side needs to enforce players to start being USEFUL or else they're in the box.

If you are NOT going to score, then you need to be a punk and mess with the other team. Start hitting things that move, rattle the other team. E.g. literally do ANYTHING besides being a waste of space.

If you are NOT going to hit or rattle the opposition, you NEED to create scoring opportunities; whether it be you or helping your teammate score.

Learn how to line-change.

Stop shooting the puck from the blueline into blocked areas.

Stop playing catch-up hockey.

It's like Im taking crazy pills watching this team play.

Well not anymore that they've advertised it. Great marketing opportunities these games are.

In all reality though, I would try and distance myself from this team specifically and focus on the teams coming through town. At least if I was in the Avalanche front office.

Team has far more problems then that, I mean as I said earlier McGinn as our #2 LWer isn't a good thing.

O'Briens worst game of the season. All other defenders can't handle the Wild forecheck and cough up the puck non-stop.

There should be a mercy rule for a season. The Avs need one this year, now.

Far worse.
Contracts like that would make someone like O'Reilly think they'd be worth far more than 3.5 million dollars.

Disagree.
We certainly don't need more RawRaw let us play hard and outwork them bullcrap. We have had enough of this for the last few years.

This team needs to be coached. We need a working system. We need schemes we need to teach the players were to go and how to defend.

We need a freaking only half decent coach for gods sake.
