It was great to see EJ and Landeskog trying to will the team to victory in the third. Landeskog seems to hate losing. I wonder how vocal he is in the locker room. Most of the players seem to have quit on the team. If you can take anything positive from the Avs current woes, at least the stars seem to be working their ***** off. Duchene, ROR and at times Landeskog are not complacent.

I am really impressed with ROR's commitment level considering the contract troubles. It would be pretty easy for him to phone in this season, given that he likely won't be an Avalanche player next year. Thankfully he's got enough integrity to not do that. I've seen him scramble to save our ****** D-men from horrible situations when the opponent's forechecking pressure could lead to disastrous goals against, and he's always tenacious on the offensive rushes.

This season isn't as bad as it seems.

Were 16 games away from Seth Jones, Jonathan Drouin or Nate Mackinnon.

And there have still been some solid positives out of the season despite our sucking.

- Duchene has emerged as one of the top players in the game today.
- ROR hasn't missed a step. In fact I would argue that his play this year has even been a big step up from last year, PPG pace after 13 games. He could very well be the real deal for us.
- Barrie looking very promising for us while he has played.
- Landy looking not great, but good and consistent, similar to last year. The captaincy doesn't seem to have effected his play.
- PAP.... Nothing more needs to be said.
- Pajamas, Bordeleau, and Mitchell have all been effective additions.
- Hishon playing again.


Obviously the record is awful, and Sacco is still coaching. But the core on ice pieces for the most part have all still looked very good this year.

16 more games to endure. We'll get another huge piece to the core from the draft, hopefully a new coach, and a new outlook heading into next year.

Speaking of which, how soon after the end of the season is the lottery held this year?

I had no idea you guys were second-last in the entire league. That's really unfortunate, but if worse comes to worst, I hope you end up scoring local boy Seth Jones, because what's better than having two core players - in this case, Duchene and Jones - who have been emotionally attached to the Avalanche since childhood?

I like your team's core of young talent and hopefully the Avs will rebound quickly.

My girlfriend is the jinxmaster general. Last season, Game 5 vs. Rangers: "There are only 30 seconds left; there's no way they could lose!"

I feel really bad for Duchene. I hope they win tonight. Canucks are having too much success against our team!
