Pathetic effort. Team should be ashamed.

Why do we have Bordeleau and McLeod if they aren't going to get something going when it's needed?

Parenteau has really faded over the last 4 or so games. Duchene hasn't imposed himself today. We really need some leadership right now.

We knew coming into this season that the defense wasn't going to be top 10 in the league. And with the injuries they've got, it hasn't gotten any better. So it's not like I'm expecting the defense to be good. Or even average. But it is so damn frustrating to see them out there today, skating around in clown shoes. OK, so they're afraid of the zombie ghost that Zanon says he saw in the slot and are avoiding that area. But what about the corners? Is there a Dracula in them? Is the puck made of Pure Evil?

This team has shown a lot of pluck to have the record they do with the line-ups they've had. I don't expect a lot from them and don't get all emo when they lose. But this game should not be 4-1. Forget Varlamov seeing bats and not the puck, the defensive coverage out there is peeing its jock.

We SHOULD expect these guys to clear the crease at least, otherwise, I see no logical reason to have so many meatheads on the blueline.

Still not as bad as 08/09 Avs defense or 10/11 Avs defense, but I guess it's hard to compete with something as awful as that.

We look pretty poor today. This team is so hot and cold. Some nights they look fairly competent even though most nights they are out matched talent wise. And others like today, they look like they have never played organized hockey.

It seems like when Matt Duchene has a bad/off game we look terrible and when he is on we are fine.

Even though we have left Varly high and dry most of the night, that 3rd goal was putrid. That was the killer. We had just cut it to 2-1 and he lets in a terrible wrist shot by an average player. That just can't happen right after you just cut the lead in half.

Also, our PP should be keeping the coaching staff up at night.

I would hope that the captain is ripping into them in the intermission but he doesn't seem like he's that guy, he's a kid.

Landy doesn't come across as a fiery leader.

I like to imagine that Varly just rips on the defense every intermission and lets them know how ****ing brutal and pathetic they are.

Shouldn't he be cheering for the avs? Traitor. Why not a "Fire Sacco" chant

Being a good player on this team surrounded by incompetence is probably enough to turn him into one.

Not even Landeskog can save the Stastny line with Jones still on it.

Watching Hunwick go up against Kopitar is like watching a little kid try to take a ball away from his bemused father who just holds it up over his head.
