Avs Power Outage


That circle should be drawn around the Avs' offense. One goal in the last two games, ain't going to get it done, even when Theo is actually doing some fine net-minding.

More specifically, that circle should be drawn around the Avs' power play. Zero for the last twenty chances is down right pathetic.

The Avs did have some pretty great chances in the final few minutes after getting a quick goal late, right after the Caps took a 2-0 lead, but it was more of the familiar-looking almost, but not quite offensive surges. Where was that offensive pressure and energy during the first 55 minutes?

While the D is playing very solid right now, the roadie has thus far been a big disappointment. The playoffs seem to be slipping away during Sakic and Smyth's absence. Losing to the Wings is one thing (they outclass just about everyone in the league), but getting zero points in a game against the Caps is not what this team needed right now. Too many damn one goal losses, where they could be earning a minimum of one point in the standings. These are going to hurt down the road.

Would someone please step it up on the offense?? (I'm looking at everyone on the team with the exception of Svatos.)

No doubt, pathetic indeed. These games are getting touhger to watch; I thought for most of the last period that we sure to get shutout again.

Arnason a had a pretty good look with about ~10 seconds left, but Kolzig straight up robbed him.

Come on super avs; we can't blow the entire season in the month of January!!!

wasting some of the most solid performances from Jose with these latest offensive bed-shittingsleys.

i want Jose to succeed...
i want to like Jose...
i want to vaguely validate the money the Avs are paying him in the salary cap NHL...

way off the target/theme and any tangential context, but hey troutdog, do you possibly have the Suicide Commandos "make a record" on CD?

TroutDog said...

Hate to say it, but no, I only have the live record on cd. I hope you're asking because you have an extra copy or want to burn me one and not that you need it yourself.

By the way, that pic of Sam-bone is too awesome.

Agreed on Jose...
