Everytime I watch the Avs they are losing. I don't know any of the players because there seems to be a lot of roster turnover. The Avs are always trading with other teams but it never seems to make the team better.
I think Sacco should be fired IMHO.
I see a team that works hard for the most part, but they lack talent. Too many grinders and not enough skill.
They had a shot at Kovalchuk but didn't want to pay up. Although, not sure he would be doing as well he is doing in NJ. Devils are a more structured organization and you must conform.
Avalanche are not quite there yet in terms of rebuilt culture/organization structure.
