That title could also be referring to the goaltender situation in Toronto after what I've seen during tonight's game, but for all intents and purposes in this post I'm talking about the lowly Colorado Avalanche and their two backup grade "goalers".
Gawd. The defensive support must be acknowledged as piss-poor, but Budaj and Raycroft are not familiar with the concept of making extraordinary saves. The Avs need either of these fucks to take a shine to "standing on one's head" and it is not happening.
It just seems the perfect storm of shit-luck too, we hold an opposing team to 2 goals and we are shutout offensively....we score 4 goals, and the other team happens to score 5 (or 6 or 7). I really do like so many of the current players, but this is not a very good team. Step aside, Colorado Avalanche, relevancy in the NHL has passed you by.
Oh, sort of need to mention that the refs tonight called SO MANY goals & penalties in the Leaf's favour. I mean, they made questionable, but important calls that really tilted things....
This was supposed to be an 8-game "statement" home-stand at this point in the season. 5 games in, and the statement is rather clear, the Avs will be left out of the playoffs this season. Sorry.
