    I see where Joe Sakic gave Patrick Roy the dreaded "vote of confidence". Although I understand his feelings, and don't blame the season all on Roy, I can't help but think it might be time for a change. Especially after Roy, at the beginning of the season, had guaranteed we'd be in the Playoffs.

    One Coach who is available that has had some pretty consistent luck against the Avs is the recently fired Minnesota Wild coach, Mike Yeo.
    He nearly had them in the playoffs but then they lost what? 7-8 straight to end the season?

    Some of that definitely falls on the coach.

    I have to disagree. I think our defense is a joke and our goal tenders are one of the few things we have going for us.

    And....21 SOG in a do or die game? pathetic
    I think both are bad. The offense has always been pathetic under Roy. Which is ridiculous considering the talent we have drafted.

    Sometimes I feel like finding an above average goalie in hockey is every bit as tough as finding a hof QB in the NFL. We've never really legitimately contended since Roy retired.

    What I don't get is how in his 3rd season Roy still can't get a team that doesn't get out shot nearly 3-1 every single night.

    I'm tired of looking at the standings and seeing the Avs in 8th but only because they have 2-3 games more played than the Wild. I fully expect to lose to them this week and be replaced though. And Nashville looks like they want it now. More than we do.

    Ive said this before and I still believe it. I'm not sure Roy was the right hire or a good coach so much as just a fluky lucky first season.

    Too many top 5, top 10 picks on this roster to still be on the bubble line every season.
    I want my Jets to tank.....to hopefully land Auston Matthews. Even the next 4 or 5 picks will be top tier potential. We're near the bottom, and I just hope we play well.....but lose!

    So, as for your Avs, who are deep in the playoff race, "No Tank You!!"

    More wins this month than any team in the league. Longest win streak in the league right now. Stripped Kane of his streak. Varly is in beast mode. Defense has been better. Even HOLDEN is playing hockey. lol Avs looking good.

    Crazy thing is the Avs would be in second in the pacific division behind the Kings.

    But in our division it's good for second to last.
