How about we start booing?

We are all tired of Arnason and Clark, right? So how about we start booing them every time they touch the puck and chant resign for Granato? It might not effect them but it can't hurt right?

Only way the fans can affect the team is to stop paying for it

And the reason they'd make that mistake is because everytime Clark is on the ice Budaj gets bombarded with shots as he (Clark) bumbles the puck, gives it away and lets people blow past him.

I think only the legitimate targeting of players with names identified would convince Avalanche management that these guys really shouldn't be getting paid. We should make an Arnason highlight video of him throwing the puck away the second he gets it, him floating around in negative space, and statistical anaylsis of his games. The same video package could be done with Clark. You know what the Avs would say? "Well, you know, there's nothing wrong, they're human, they're allowed to make mistakes." or something along those lines. We should all start chanting we want Tavares and we want Hedman. We can change it up from game to game, maybe that'll wake them up.

The team does need to be booed at. Whenever they play a home game and give one of their sad little efforts where they barely try to win, they should be booed as they go into the locker room for each intermission and at the end of the game. However, I don't think any single player should be singled out and booed at... after all, they all need to take responsibility for their pathetic performances.

Personally, I won't waste money to go see this team when I can sit at home and be disappointed in them. Until they actually start putting out team efforts, rather than their typical style of taking 30-40 minutes per game off, I'm not going anywhere near Pepsi Center.

It's not Arnasons fault that he plays instead of Hensick. It's not Clark's fault that he isn't more than a mediocre bottom-pairing defensman.

Booing Granato makes no sense as well. It's not his fault being a bad coach. I mean...who would deny the coaching jobs with all the money and benefits if someone offers it to you?
Seriously, I can't blame Granato. He's definitely giving his best to improve this team. Problem is his "best" is barely good enough for uninspiring 0.50 hockey.

So if you really wanna boo someone out of the arena you have to boo the real decision-makers. With the Avs though, it's hard to figure out who they are.

But it is his fault that he plays lazy. If we boo clark he will start to hate playing in Colorado. It's Granato's fault that this team plays like the have no heart.

So, if we boo Clark and Arnason, they'll want out of Colorado at all costs? I fully agree that booing should be lift at the Bell Centre, but that makes it sound a little more tempting.

I have alot of respect for Colorado's organization and you guys thier fans, but this is a rebuild, its the first one you guys have endured in Colorado but it wont be the last.

Remember how you got your team? Quebec tanked and nobody showed up so the team was moved, then first year in Colorado you take the cup with all the great draft picks from years of tanking.

Support the the team guys find things to cheer about!

Unfortunately, it's not a rebuild. There have not been any firesales. No stockpiling of draft picks. Maybe that's all coming, but until it does, it's not a rebuild. The team was a final eight team last season. There is no indication anyone associated with the team felt that could not be duplicated this year. They signed Darcy Tucker. They changed coaches. The new coach is refusing to give a young talented player like TJ Hensick an expanded role because he feels Tyler Arnason is a better option. That's not how you rebuild.

And I can speak for the majority of Avs fans when I say, I'd take a true rebuild any day of the week over what we're getting now. Watching a team struggle because the players are young and inexperienced is easy to swallow. Watching young players develop is worthwhile. Watching a veteran team struggle because management wants a coach to develop, especially when said coach won't give young players a chance to develop, not so much.

Sorry, but even rebuilding teams show a desire to win and play with heart and effort. This team is just lazy much of the time, content to do the bare minimum that it takes to stay in the lineup and collect their paycheck.

Booing is not the answer. That's a low class and non-loyal way to treat your team. We don't have to like certain players, but when they are wearing your team's colors you should support them. That doesn't mean cheer for them, but it certainly means don't boo them and make them feel like crap. I dislike Clark and Arnason as much as anybody, but I won't be booing them at the Pepsi Center. If some people are so frustrated with team that think it's justifiable to boo their own team maybe they could consider switching favorite teams? Nobody is forced to be an Avalanche fan. But those that choose to be Avs fans should support the team and not boo them.

Nope that is not how it went down at all. The Nordiques had a strong and supportive fanbase and a very good up and coming young team on the verge of taking it to the next level when the owner got greedy and wanted a new arena in order to expand his profit margin. He threatened to sell the team if he did not get his new arena and voila. The ownership group from Colorado bought the Nordiques and moved them here.

Halfway through that first season the Colorado Avalanche aquired the missing piece with the trade for an elite #1 goal tender in Patrick Roy from the Canadiens. (side note - Roy would never have been traded to the arch rival Nordiques.) That pushed them over the top and made them a Stanley Cup Winner.

So this situation that the Avs now find themselves in is not at all similar to the last year of the Nords.

Stastny is now out with a broken arm? That makes Arnason your #1 C. Any interest in bringing Chris Drury back? The Rangers nwould probably take Brett Clark and another player (David Jones?) for him.

If we had a competent coach Arnason would still be #3 center or worse behind Hensick and Wolski.

I doubt the Avs want anything to do with Drury's $7M contract.

switch Jones with arnason and you have a deal (we can move Wolski to center and have TJ, Lappy, and Guite be the other 3)
