Are we one of the only teams still playing an enforcer? Bordeleau played just over a minute today. Just a waste of a line up spot.

We need a freaking only half decent coach for gods sake.
It's both things.
Shane O'Brien can't make a pass out of the neutral zone, and if he tries to rush the puck he waits too long to pass it and eventually turns it over or send it to someone in no position to receive a puck.
David Jones can't control a puck to save his life and his only redeeming feature is that he can skate really hard and fast, but only if it's in a straight line.
Matt Hunwick constantly puts himself out of position either by making a big, but toothless, hit or simply giving the puck away.
Greg Zanon left whatever skill he had with the hair on his head.

Most of the defense can only make clear short passes on a good day, that is a problem.

Duchene just sort of quietly called out Sacco?

In that time he made more of a positive impact than a large portion of the other players on our team.



What did Duchy say????

Not fair for Varly. Always believed goalie with most GA should get the loss.

Absolutely no media coverage by the team, nothing about management, etc. When tough times happen, they spin everything. When there's a public outcry, crank up music?

Oh don't worry, our awesome beat writers will have a great piece on Duchene not sharing his cheese fries with O'Reilly, and six other pieces on Chris Stewart's return to form. Mix in some "I toldyaso" and a hambone, baby you got yourself some media coverage.

No need for Bordy today, Konopka is a middleweight and someone McLeod can handle.

No, I would be completely OK with that. I feel like the other forwards give the team a better chance to net something.

Basically said that it isn't effort or talent. Then, went on to say that everybody is so afraid to make a mistake that they just can't play their games.

I could totally see him doing this. He not only is a player employed by the team, but he is a legitimate fan who is emotionally invested in the franchise.

He's probably frustrated as cuss.

Duchene said it wasn't talent or effort why the Avs are in this hole. He says it's more about concentration, because the guys are scared of being the next guy to make a mistake.

More or less.

Hahaha. Thanks for the laugh. Needed it after this mess of a game .

It is about time that our main guys start calling Sacco out.

It just can not go on. Keep him for the tank this year but than get rid of this guy. You can not be that stubborn PL. You just can not!

Well he fought their heavyweight right after they scored. That is his only job and he did it.

Sacco: good start, but we don't score on our PP, they score on theirs.

Besides that I love the compete level and good energy.
