No coach would have success with this defense and Varlamov only stopping 90% of the shots.

he doesn't do much, but he gets in the way and blocks a few shots, i just don't see how our pro scouts identified him as a useable player in our system.

he's bad though, like , macias , wes o'niell, peltier uselessness.

Why are you blaming the goalie for this performance?

That's kinda how it works for this team the last two year. Two minutes for wearing an Avalanche logo.

How does PAP get an unsportsmanlike penalty for taking a cheap shot butt end from Fiddler who just instantly skates away?

Anyway, the worst hockey player I have ever seen is Matt Hunwick. Followed by Darcy Tucker. But Zanon is easily in the top 3 and pushing to go higher.

Seriously I see Varlamov as one of the bright spots in this year's team alongside of Duchene, PAP and maybe Barrie.

Because he cant make a save? 3 goals on 22 shots like every other game. But keep blaming everyone else but the guy between the pipes.

This team sucks but Varlamov has not done his part either.

Most people suggested the Avs were going to be a playoff bubble team before this season started and we are underachieving and a HUGE PART OF THAT is the ****ing coach with his ******** decisions.
I think you're letting the team off the hook too easily because you dislike the coach and like the team.

Sacco certainly has a role to play in the team playing like losers. Sherman has to take part of the blame for assembling this terrible defense. But at the same time a big chunk of it is on the players. They're losing because they're playing like losers. Seth Jones isn't going to teach them how to win in camp next year.

I'm not suggesting this core can't turn it around eventually. They probably will. I'm just saying the worse we do now, the longer the road will be.

I can't think of another player I would rather not have on a PK than Funwick.

Those players at least have/had heart.

Arnason makes Wolski look like Ryan O'Reilly.

Best quote I have ever seen.

95% of the people posting in here have never played hockey. They blame everything on the refs and coaches but blame NOTHING on our players.

Eventually these guys need to look in the mirror and start playing well instead of playing like Losers.

Hunwick as a player, on the ice, is horrific

Darcy Tucker is the only Avalanche player I've ever hated

Arnason... well, maybe Arnason went too invisible toward the end for me to notice how bad he was.

LOL. I still remember arguing with people that Wolski was Arnason 2.0. They wouldn't listen. Avs traded him at the right time.

Do you even read the posts here....? Everyone here loves O'Byrne, Hunwick, Zanon etc sure. We just don't blame the players who are actually pulling their weight.
