Starting to look like a copy of last time these teams met. Outshooting Dallas. Dallas get a 2-0 lead, Avs fight back to 2-2 and then allow a 2-3 goal late in the second period.

Hope we don't get a boring goalless third period like last time.

Only 20 more games of this crap. At least I will be excited about the trade deadline (though the Avs typically don't do anything).

No it was someone on the bench as he skated by. I had to swtich the Dallas feed because the Avs one died. He skated by and stopped instead of going off, pointed to the ice, and said lets go like three or four times. Only makes sense that it would be Bordy, or maybe Gabe.

This team is an absolute joke.

Varlamov with a .900 save %. It doesn't get much worse that than although people in here will give 100 excuses. Yet another brilliant trade by our brilliant GM

Naw, it's racist to say I was 100% convinced they dragged a random lineman from the Broncos and put him on the ice.

However, it was not racist when his skating proved my theory.

I think we're observing right now why it's a real problem. We have a healthy, talented team that has no ability to push back. And no, it's not only the coach. It's the team. They're playing like losers. It's a big deal.
For the record, I'm not suggesting they are playing well. I just think that you are underestimating how badly they also want this guy gone and fired.

We saw them play a hell of a game against Chicago, they're certainly capable.

What has changed from this year to last season? Downie injured? McClement gone? Are THOSE the reasons why we're 29th instead of 19th?? Most people suggested the Avs were going to be a playoff bubble team before this season started and we are underachieving and a HUGE PART OF THAT is the ****ing coach with his retarded decisions.

Besides, like you said, we'll trade or lose half those players anyway by the time the Avs start winning.
Here is the deal. The Avs have one of the youngest core in the league so to someone who doesn't follow the team as closely, it's just a 'heh, the Avs suck again this year...growing pains or whatever'.

To the players it's "what the **** is this guy doing"? They'd like to win and perform better but just can't understand why the coach makes the decisions he makes. They aren't sure if Sacco is trying to lose on purpose, hell we can't even come to that consensus as fans but one thing is for sure, they ALSO want him gone.

I agree with you that the regression should have been addressed sooner, I'm not defending that, hell I'm not even really defending what they are doing (tanking) I'm just saying 'THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE DOING' and I understand why they are doing it.

Would I like to see my team play better and players put together in a smart way that they fit well together and even if we miss the playoffs, at least we can see some team progression? Hell yeah! But I also know that the holes on defense will not fill themselves and it's going to take a lateral move of a core piece to fill.

Clark is and was a servicable defenseman. May was a fine bottom 6 guy. Worrell and Shantz though...should have never touched the ice.

Why do you keep saying "I love EJ/Varly but not what we gave up for them" when you keep bashing them for every mistake, and clearly, don't evene like them..?
