But we can't think about the what ifs, just learn and move on. I am a bit mad, but we had the chances to tie this game and didn't capitalize on them. It happens to every team once in a while and especially to young teams.

+ Duchene looked good.
+ Bottom 6 forwards looked great
+ Zanon and Johnson were great
+ Varlamov kept us in besides some terrible rebounds

- Varly's rebounds
- Wilson by far was the worst defender, seems he can't play that many minutes
- Landeskog was just skating out there
-Stastny looked lost

and the perfect negative for all young teams
- Star players didn't show up (Look at Anaheim right now)
I'm watching the ducks game right now and they look fine to me. Perry and Teemu both scored. Now they just need getz and ryan to get into the scorefest.

Also Stastny needs to shoot more and stop looking for the pass ALL the time.

I can't believe all the Duchene bashing in here. It wasn't his best game, but he was far from a bad player. He did fine on faceoffs, he wasn't trying (as much there were a couple bad decisions) stupid **** like spin moves and ridiculous 1 on 3 threes. He wasn't a liability on defense and didn't cost us any 5 on 5 goals, played tolerable PK.

Honestly it was nice to see him play more under control and I think in the long run it will pay off.

No that was to prove my point, that if your star players show up you can beat any team in this league. Sadly it's one of longest one's to learn as a young rebuilding club, consistency.

That's one of his flaws , ever since he's in the NHL. You're right, he's always looking for the pass . But on the other hand, he's now playing with two goal scorers.

That's normal on this board. He'll get bashed no matter what.

I don't see the difference between the Winnik we had and the guy playing for the ducks tonight. The guy ALWAYS STARTS THE SEASON ON FIRE and then 15-20 games in, starts to suck large donkey balls. I don't know if he does it on purpose or if he just simply can't keep up his play but he did that very same thing each year he was with the Avs.

Agreed. He played much better and was actually using his teammates. Foppa2118, I'm not sure what you were expecting but I'm satisfied with how that line played considering they've been together for exactly 7 days. Lando made a great pass to Duchene that would have given him an empty net that went through his legs (would have been a nice play though) and Parenteau made a few nice passes that could have resulted in a goal under different circumstances. We didn't see the same kind of hockey that he was playing last season, which is a very, very good sign. Landeskog did look either under the weather or just not as fast as he was last year (unless it's the weight of the "C" jeez, I hope not) so I think that had an effect on the whole line.

Looking forward to Tuesday.

Do we really need a reason to bash Duchene? I actually think he should play more on the pk, it would be healthy for him, not to just think offense all the time and it would be beneficial to the avs in the long run. All in all I thought he was ok.

Do those two things score goals or setup plays on their own? That's the issue. No one doubts how fast he is, and how good his hands are skating with the puck.

He needs to make better decisions with the puck, and make quicker passes to give he and his linemates more open ice.

Ahh ok. Then I guess the same could be said for the nucks. At least I'm enjoying them getting blown out.

Good news from tonight was at least Sacco is using EJ like a #1 d-man. 22:40 minutes played tonight and it could have been more if he didn't get hurt in the 2nd period.

Duchene was not OK IMO, he was horrible. They pretty much all were.

I didn't think duchene had a horrible game, but it wasn't a great game either. I hope he bounces back this year. He can't suck for 2 straight years right?
