had I been in the right place at the right time I would have gotten that in, it was just a really weird bounce (mostly salei's fault)

I think it's time for Granato to move Smyth and Hejduk back to Stastny's line. He made the change at the right time last game, and he needs to do so again, because we're not generating much sustained pressure, or much off the rush.

Agreed. It's what I would have done...mid-second period when it looked like something needed to happen before we'd end up down by a goal...

Duke is officially back in top form. He's light years ahead of what he's shown us the past 2 years or so. His skating is much, much better as well as his all-around game.

You gotta either run the crap out of Bugylfulidgianlana or whatever his crappy ass name is or send TAVES down to the ice. If no once stands up for Sakic...this team is gonna go down the tubes for sure.

That entire shift was because Brett Clark is an AHL defenseman

And because Granatool can't coach. And Arnason is useless. I think I am getting the hang of it.

There is no way you can tell me with a straight face Clark was anything short of ****ing awful tonight. I can count at least four occasions his ineptness lead directly to quality chances against.

A failed clear and a bad bounce lead to goals...but the one that Budaj could and probably should have had (goal 3) is going to be the one that kills us again. That "one bad goal" is at it again.

And now the Hawks ice it because of bad defense. Wow, this team is looking hopeless early

Oh wait...Bohlmeister, you've actually convinced ME !

- Granatool is a great coach and even though his 29 other counterparts in the league have proven their worth and worked their way up...he's just as good as they are if not better. He doesn't have to prove anything to anyone...he's just that good. Our special teams would attest to that. (Just look at the awesome PP we just had !!! That's bound to end up as a strategy on NHL 2010 next year !)

- Arnason is a damn fine 3rd line center. The reference of "Ice Turd" is mean, hurtful and unwarranted. He's the type of guy who just makes his linemates better. As long as he keeps up his fine play, we'll be just fine.

Sakic isn't so good right now. It's more fashionable to bash some of the others, but he's been fairly brutal lately. He started out great, but ...

I'm not fan of Budaj, and he did let in one bad goal that ended up breaking the backs of the Avs tonight. But this was a team effort of crap tonight. This team need a goalie...yes.

But they need a whole lot more, like a coach, a defense, a penalty kill, and some people outside of Hejduk and Stats who can score

I'm not blaming Budaj from what I've seen this game - he's actually been pretty good.

These guys are playing like they want a new coach.

This is embarassing. Seriously how can management and coachin staff let this team get away with this. There is no accountability whatsoever. The hawks controlled it better then our PP on that 5 on 5. We have all that talent on the ice yet cant make crisp passes...im in favor of not letting Smyth handle the puck at all on the PP...Why did we get him again? Oh yah, to deflect that rubber thing. Seriously has Smyth had a deflection goal at all since hes been an Av?
