What would you do if you were an LA kings fan? Theyve been coined as a 'powerhouse' for many years now and we've seen noting yet. Our rebuild is going really smooth right now. These kids obviously need some time to grow, its already evident how much they have grown since last year.

The four bottom capspace clubs are not making the playoffs. The four youngest teams are not making the playoffs. Avs are part of those categories and imo we should've made the playoffs due to all the games we should've won, but lost and put on 40+ shots. But being the youngest comes with consistency issues, I think that's pretty much a fact and we saw it this season with some of the streakiest wins/losses ever.

I'm afraid the UFA season may not be that enjoyable for the Avs.

At least once the new CBA is in place, management won't be able to sell that angle as to why the payroll is the lowest in the league.

Going into the offseason prior to the 2013-2014 season, the jig will be up.

They just overhauled it this season! We were too small, so they got bigger. Do you really think KSE is going to overhaul it again so soon?

This. Well put. Knowing Sherman, he's got a list of D-men ready and he will make sure he nabs one for EJ.

The LA Kings have the balls to shake up the coaching ranks.

His point being, we've got too many 3rd & 4th liners on this team. Our defense? We need major upgrades in order to be a team serious about winning a Cup.

Probably not a popular opinion here but O'Reilly is another guy who really faded when we needed him the most.

This team badly needs Duchene to play well. I love O'Reilly and he probably works harder than anyone else on the team but he should play the 3rd line center role.

Wasn't able to catch the game (went and saw Lupe Fiasco). Here are my assumptions:

- came out flat after 6 days rest (as expected)
- Varly wasnt sharp.
- Mason looked like Roy.


Amirite?

Yeah, he is taking it really hard. He looked like he just lost a loved one.

Really? Don't have the talent. Do you have TV or are you just listening to games on the radio?

The Avs are extremely talented and there are tons of teams that would kill to have our center depth. We appear to have found a great tandem in goal in Varly and Giggy as well as our stud #1 D-man in Johnson. We have an amazing young powerforward in Lando and added 2 pretty good wingers in Downie and McGinn.

We are probably a good, solid #2 and a good solid #3 d-man away from making some noise. After that, some tweaking and perhaps not next year (especially if we bring back sucko) but the year after that, look out mofos.
