Interesting piece about Varly from Kiszla. Where do they grow these reporters? I at least give Varly a chance to succeed under different circumstances.

Kiszla isn't a reporter. He's a trollumnist. It's so transparent that it's completely uninteresting.

Three years ago he said Anderson is a joke - I don't think Senators fans agree with this. Last year he said AVS should trade Duchene, after that Matt has the best season of his career. So I expect Varly gets at least Vezina nomination next year

can't say it better than the person who posted the following in reply at the Post

Denver Post must dump Mark Kizla, get writer who understands his subject matter.

One of the best goalies to ever play the game doesn't need goaltending advice from idiots like Kiszla.

It only took the question how often he had watched Varly play to earn me a block. I looked for a Twitter fight apparently. Probably a Ninja Twitter fight because I wasn't even aware of it.

I asked him to expand on why Varlamov is useless when no other analyst and presumably the management think otherwise

I'm yet to receive an answer, remarkably.

That's funny because you know he intentionally writes these articles to get under peoples skin and generate traffic. It's blatantly obvious. No one could be that ******** on a regular basis. That he would then block people for reacting to his articles is hilarious.

I can't wait for Patty to have a Tortorella-Brooks moment with him. I'm gonna have my popcorn ready, and sitting on the edge of my seat for that one.

I was screaming for a FO overhaul during the season and we got it.
The next big cleanout needed is the Avs section of the Denverpost.
Putrid.
Kizla, Dater and Chambers. Putrid.
Aren't there any halfdecent sportsjournalists available who can take over? Prefered would be guys who won the cup in 1996 or 2001

I'd love to see Podes become the primary AVs beat writer for the Post.

Totally agree. They are all aweful.

The fact that Kiszla suggested trading Duchene just shows what a complete joke he is. Thank god Dutchy made him eat his words this past season.

To be fair to Kizla I thought about that as well. But wanted to wait until this year is done to see if the bad year was just an anomaly.

Duchene was so bad two years ago.

Except these type of hacks never really eat their words, because they're so sheltered no one ever calls them out. That was a year ago. Now he's on to the next target with Varly, and if he has a great year next year, he'll be on to the next target in Landy or something. Anything that shocks people and generates traffic.

It's pathetic. We have two beat writers that basically have no intelectual thought procees or much knowledge of the game of hockey in Dater and Chambers, and a Shock Jock in Kiszla as the only media coverage of the Avalanche.

The editors, and those that run the Post are almost more to blame than the writers. I have no idea how things whittled down to one paper over time, run by a bunch of literall idiots. A cast of teenagers could provide better coverage, and do thing more efficiently. I have absolutely no respect for anyone working at the Denver Post due to their content, but it's the only source of info on the Avs in town. It's really shameful.

Hey now, Terry Frei's still damn good. The few times he writes about hockey are about the only times it's worthwhile to open the sports page.

Kiszla is a genius because he takes an unpopular decision that he can defend and goes wild with it, pissing everyone off and generating traffic.

Would be nice if he even tried to defend it. His defense is: "I have covered more than 200 playoff games and that's why I'm always right."

He offered no defence of his position in that article. He didn't say why Varlamov was bad, who we should get to replace him or how we should do that.

He didn't say Varlamov was bad, just that he was average and not elite based on his numbers (which were terrible).

Yeah, he's pretty bad.

I do believe his general topic is interesting though. I think Roy as coach will result in some interesting things for us to watch: what will happen with overall personnel, with they spend to the cap, what kind of system will he bring in, will the team have fewer games where they simply don't compete, etc.

But to me, the other big question is what will Roy do with Varlamov, and how will Varlamov play under Roy?

Give Varly:

1. A real D including, at the least, shutdown 1-2 D-men;
2. A full-time dedicated goalie coach like most successful NHL teams; and
3. A real coach who will insist on and get constant disciplined play from the entire team.

The Avs now have # 3. When they get #'s 1 and 2 then I have no doubt Varly will flourish.

BTW, Kizla is an idiot. His having previously urged trading away Duchene proved to me the guy has no clue whatsoever when it comes to hockey.

Kiszla is an idiot. Wasn't he the one that said the Avs should move Duchene last summer?
