Defenseman aren't the only ones that have to play defense. Sacco hasn't been able to create a proper system, or get the forwards to play even remotely consistent two way hockey in 4 years.

If you can't bring yourself to give the best effort regardless of the opposing team you don't deserve to be a pro athlete.

Hahah, did Kyle Keefe and Rycroft just go to the bar for the rest of the show after that first period?

2. How incredibly bad this team is. Not sure if its just a void of talent or if its bad coaching or what, but this team is horrendous. Can't score, can't play defense, has no desire to compete. We need to blow it up soon as this rebuild has failed miserably.
this team has talent more then most just dont have the proper person running it. Also besides Johnson the rest of them are 3rd pairing guys yes including Hejda whom I like.

Cant help but laugh every time I watch Bordeleau going in for a fight. He looks like a monkey.

Hejda is fine IMO as #4 defenseman.

I'd pay $25 for one of those 4 tickets and deals even if the team sucks. Still decent entertainment for 2.5 hours.
I think a lot of those are the cheap seats, $80 was a estimate at a decent seat.

Saddest part is they are at a grill/restaurant and nobody is there watching the Avs, it's dead.

Yes defensemen aren't the only ones who are supposed to play defense and Sacco does a piss poor job at involving our forwards in the defensive play, but please tell me what that has to do with my post. Radar wasn't even on the ice when Wild scored their ES goals, Duchene on the other hand lost his man completely on the 2nd goal.

Ahh.

Well yea, I wouldn't pay $80 for a good seat. The hockey game for the most part probably wouldn't be the entertainment right now, with the way these clowns are playing.

Yea it's pretty awesome. Every time they cut to him, he's got "I don't know what the **** to do" written all over his face. Every time in every game.

Yeah, but we have to be realistic. As long as Hejda plays for us he's going to be #4 defenseman, AT LEAST. Right now he's probably #2-#3 in depth chart about same as Wilson.

Rycroft is absolutely right. Chance to take the lead on the PP, got ***** and Minny gets theirs and scores.

There is no way this 5 forward PP is close to being productive which Altitude said.
