    Maybe try being a little less whiny and try a wait and see approach.

    I mean gtown you act like the season is already down the drain but the team is 7-6 and still in a playoff spot.

    And Girard isn’t just some propsect. He started out the season in Nashville and over performed while their original starter was injured.
    Go ahead and address me with all the personal insults you want. It doesn't change the mistakes that an incompetent Front Office has made, by one iota.

    And yes, the Avs are 7-6. But somebody on this Board Posted that "It’s an 82 game season", and "wait and see". You can't have it both ways. Let's see where we are in March. For those of us who follow hockey, we remember that the Avalanche finished 20 POINTS BEHIND THE 2ND WORST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE, last season.

    And what about Girard? He is an undersized Defenseman who was taken in the 2nd Round in 2016. Girard got icetime in 5 of Ottawa's first 15 games. He was a healthy scratch the rest of the time. He is as far away from being a "Blue Chip" prospect as you can get. Sakic screwed things up so badly with Duchene (not to mention Will Butcher, Stastny, and Ryan Oreilly) that he ultimately took whatever he could get for the best player on the Colorado Avalanche Roster. Girard is likely to be sent to the Minors unless Sakic feels the obvious pressure to keep him on the Avs roster. Today, the Avs are significantly worse than they were a week ago.

    So, that's 3 "Propsects", only one of whom hasn't been sent to the minors since the Trade, a throwaway "salary dump" Goalie, and some draft picks. And how about those Draft Picks? Anyone who has looked at the Avs history of Drafting outside of their perennial Top 10 picks, won't be encouraged. Just look at Duncan Siemens. The 11th Pick in the Draft, a few years back, and a Defenseman who will never get out of the Minors.

    So if pointing out some facts about the Avs is "whining", then I suggest you get used to it.

    I dont understand some reoccurring problems. Its not like we been devoid of talent so why do our stars keep leaving or not developing? Over the past few years ive also routinely hear that they have been out shot or that they didnt shoot enough. Its so easy for me to see how they wouldve been successful if they had been able to keep orielly, stastny, duchane....but they have made it pretty easy to imagine things better after last season

    They are still hanging around. This team is improved whether some people want to see it or not. Not referring to you Blondie.

    Last nights Avs game against New Jersey should be marked on everyone's calendar as the 1st game of the 2017-2018 season where Nakita Zadarov actually lost the game for the Avalanche with a perfect pass to a New Jersey player standing directly in front of Varlamov. That particular goal should list Zadarov as receiving an "assist" for the opposing team. That happened at least a half-dozen times, last season. I can't help but believe that the NHL is investigating the possibility of "betting" on games.
