Diaz. What a deal for us

I hated that we traded him. Hate it even more now.

Word at the time was he'd become a locker room malcontent about the ice time he was getting from Tororella.

Speaking of ex Canuck's and ice time debates, fan and Gollum favourite CoHo scored his first of the season 12 games in.Played 9:22 minutes, but not a shift after his goal with 5:21 remaining in the game. I guess he's still not trusted hanging onto a one goal lead.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Kesler scores his first goal of the season, hopes it is his last.

How long until Patrick Roy is fired? What does everyone think? Does he survive with Colorado at the bottom of the division until the trade deadline? Or does Colorado let this whole season play out and can him in the off season / let him step down? They're on pace for less then 70 points this season, which is dramatically worst then the 90 points they got last season to end up last in their division. They're getting dangerously close to "Edmonton Oilers territory" here.

Sakic (Roy's boss) is on record saying that Patrick's job is not on the line. Not even close.

I still don't understand why they traded O'Reilly. If it was cap issues, fine, if not they made a stupid trade. The guy is playing great in Buffalo.

If Sakic wants to save himself had better fire Roy soon. I believe he's the problem

I think I heard that Duchene and Roy haven't been getting along, which has led to rumours that Duchene could be traded.

I figured that, and this is the reason why former teammates shouldn't be running a team together. They will be shown the door at the same time if that's the case.

Wouldn't surprise me to learn players can't get along with Raw.

If his "personality" is costing the team players like Stastny, O'Reilly, and now Duchene

... well the Avs made the wrong move in hiring him, just as yours truly said at the time. :mex:

If there's one thing highly conditioned professional athletes hate, it's push-ups.
