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.

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.
First off, let's not get crazy. The Avs are not 3-21...they are 10-14, possibly 11-14 after tonight. The players have some of the blame of course but with the piss-poor defense that we do have, you and I and EVEN the players who actually play on the team would expect that the coach should at least give us the best chance possible to win. Greg Zanon leading our D in icetime, is NOT DOING THAT. I don't care which way you want to slice it, it's not. To suggest that this doesn't bother the players one bit is a bit silly in my opinion.

I would argue that the 'road will ACTUALLY be longer' if we don't acquire some help on the backend without making a lateral move as I suggested earlier.

In my opinion, after this season (IF a good coach is brought in):

2013-14 - Playoff team
2014-15 - Playoff team that SHOULD be contenders but lose in the 1st or 2nd round (learning to win in the playoffs)
2015-16 - Contenders (no trouble making the playoffs)

You can quote me on that.

Nice to see the team push back and win a game for Varly. Hopefully it helps him regain confidence.

We are probably going to win just enough to be out of a top 5 pick, and Sacco will probably get to see the end of his contract through.

I guess even blind squirrels find nuts every once in awhile. We had no business winning that game we were pretty terrible, the worst part is that Sacco gets to keep his job for another day now.

Oh well fully expect us to go back into suck mode for another 4 or 5 games after this one. We're just not that good and got super lucky tonight. You're not going to win many games where you take 6 penalties and go down 2-0.

Ahh, nice to see a win. With that being said it's extremely hard to make a push with no games outside of the conference. Somebody in the West always getting points.

At the end of the season when were 6-7 points away from a top 5 pick and no playoffs in sight might be rough but can't be upset when you a W. Good effort overall tonight too, Varly with a few weak ones but came up big late again.

I think he was suprised that Dater picked the three stars. Or at his selections... 1. Kobasew 2. Jagr 3. Moneyman

Should have been Trollver instead of Factor though.

How are we still only 4 points out. This is really depressing.

It's posts like this that make me shake my head.

Did we have an awful 1st period? Hell yes.
Did we battle back and outplay them in the 2nd? Hell yes.
Did we outwork and out battle them in the 3rd? Hell yes.

We deserved that win
