At this point he should have just let in Budaj and see him getting destroyed and done for good.

Who did we trade Morris for, and Reinprecht?
And why haven't we changed strategies yet? sure we can change goalies, but it's easier to blame a goalie than it is to blame yourself - GRANATO!

Leopold has been terrible...I can't imagine the Avs will get much for him at this point.

Just turned on... *shakes head*

I love how nice this Avs team is. Seem anytime we play a team that's been out of sorts we help them out of it.

Only just caught the last goal - where was our defender putting pressure on Gomez. He had so much time at the side of our net to line up that deflection

Reinprecht was traded to Buffalo for Keith Ballard and the Sabres traded Reinprecht to Calgary. The Avs traded Morris and Ballard to PHX for Gratton, Vaananen and a second round pick (Stastny).

It's D strategy.
If you switch out the goalies, and the other team is still playing the same game and scores the same way, it's not the goalies.
To say it's the goalie'f, would meant o say that they have the same playstyle, and there's a vast difference between the two.

We traded Reinprecht to BUF for Ballard who was later traded along with Morris to Phoenix for Vaanannanananen plus a 2nd round pick (which turned out to be Stastny, I think). So in the end all good, at the time of the trade though, the consensus was that Lacroix lost his mind.

Edit: Jori was faster

Pretty laughable trade from Avs side.

Interesting. I would've never made the trade though if I were GM. Doesn't even seem worth it =/

Yeah letting in 3 goals on 9 shots for Budaj is just great! Just as great as him pretty much already sitting on the ice before the puck comes to him. The D isnt helping, especially Leopold on that last goal, but these 2 goalies are horrible.

Even though the D isnt playing well, I find it hilarious when people say its not Budaj/Raycrofts fault. They're always out of position and just flat out suck.

Does this seam like the players way of ****ing over management for the awful coaches hired this season. They have all reduced their trade value over the last 2 or 3 games.

To be fair, Gratton was part of arguably the Avs best 3rd line (Kono-Gratton-Barnaby). That line was great and it was known that Lacroix always had a huge man crush for Gratton. Still a mind-boggling trade.

Yes, it is all of the AVs fault - but the load goes to the D from me.

There are GREAT players after Tavares/Hedman. Duchene, MSP, Schenn, Kane, Cowen. All are going to be pretty damn good.

This team needs everything....Goaltending, D, Offense. So at our position I would love Duchene, MSP, or Cowen
