Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugg.

What a shitty year all around, from losing Forsberg and Foote because of the cap to season ending injuries to Konowalchuk, Vaananen and now Svatos, to a questionable trade for Theodore. I'm officially disinfranchised.

So if we see limited action from PL in FA we can assume hes already looking at next season.

just jumping in here to say how pissed i am right now.

ill always stick with my avs, but im just disgusted right now.

the problem wasnt aebischer, the problem was (and is) the coach.

quenville is simply a goalie hater. he did this crap in st louis, and now he's doing it here.
he never gets behind one guy, and as a result his teams suffer.

aeby is younger, he's been playing fantastic, and his team was behind him.

this is just an awful move, and it was spurned by the fact that our turd of a coach has a long and storied track record of messing with his netminders.
trading one of the backup goalies (who someone wouldve wanted) for a defenseman (or even power forward) was a move i couldve got behind, but trading your #1 goalie for another goalie who wont even play for a month (while youre in a battle for the division and your playoff seed) is just lunacy.
add to it that coach q wont be happy with jose either and it REALLY stinks.

bottom line is that q ran aeby out of town, and he even got some of the media and fans to support his whacked out thinking.

the move we needed to make was to ship our COACH out of town.
just my .02

They'll probably fall out altogether. The Avs got worse the last 24 hours and teams behind them got better. Budaj is going to have to be very good for the Avs to make it.

What ticks me off is that Lacroix had to know that Svatos's injury was serious. Why not make a move for Samsonov?

I'm sorry, but this activity looks to me as if they Avs are looking at next season. You just will never hear them admit it.

if they play .500 hockey, they should make it and they definitely have the players to play .500 hockey, IMO.

Bingo. Lacroix will still spout the same line about how the organization is comitted to competing for the Cup every year despite all of his actions saying otherwise.

If he thinks there will be no fan backlash from all of this, he's sadly mistaken.

Some comments from Roy regarding the Theodore trade:

[''I think he'll be a better goaltender,'' Roy said Thursday at a news conference in Quebec City. ''Not because he was traded, but, because of everything he's gone through, I think he can bounce back and have a good career.'']

[''Maybe Colorado will stop drafting goalies - they'll just get them from Montreal,'' Roy joked at the news conference that was carried live by some Quebec television networks.]

Ottawa gets a second line center, finally. Arnason was a consistent scorer on a horrible team. He'll only get better here with Havlat on his side.

If theodore doesn't play in the regular season, then his salary does not count towards our cap. so, if we leave him on IR until the playoffs, then we just freed up aebi's salary to try and swing another trade.Theo just might be the future back up to ??

Trade deadline has passed. We are stuck with what we have.

So Bert stayed put. I'm actually kind of surprised. I thought he'd go somewhere. I also thought Souray would be moved.

No big Luongo deal either, I noticed. Half the Habs fans were sure Aebi was going to be on his way to Florida this morning.
