In before Rosen talk!
Just take the L and move on.
Was he fantastic in the playoffs though?
I dunno, I still have that image of him being danced around like he was traffic cone in game seven against the Sharks.
I still don't get it. We know that Bedz doesn't like Z, we know that Z hasn't been giving it his all, so why didn't you deal him at the deadline for some help? We are injured AF! And with the way this season has gone, I doubt the injuries are gonna just suddenly stop.
He was playing effectively. Not taking stupid penalties. I thought he was our 2nd best Dman
Z was okay in the Calgary series, and brutal in the San Jose series.
I have no issue with Connauton getting in for Zadorov.
Z has been pretty bad for a couple months now and the Barbs/Z pairing cost the Avs the game against the Ducks.
Bednar had to do something.
We should give Connaught a chance. He barely played this year.
Well I don't care about him but the fact remains that he was above Connauton in the depth chart and we didn't get any other dman to replace him.
Can't wait to watch the Barbs/Connauton pairing.
People who think that Graves, Cole and EJ are bad are in a fun night.
Zadorov is better than a bottom pairing defenseman. However he has no business earning more than bottom pairing minutes minutes on our back end when everyone is healthy.
To top it off he thrives when paired with a puck mover and Cole certainly isn’t that.
Essentially Zadorov is one of our worst defenseman while also being put in a position to fail with his partner which makes him even worse again. This isn’t new and it’s the reason why we all know the writing is on the wall.
I personally liked the Zadorov-Girard pairing and would love to see that used sporadically once he comes back but there’s no way he’s earning that role full time for Bednar over EJ
Avs missed their chance to call up Josh Anderson!
I am a Z fan and think at his best he should be a 4th D that plays with someone mobile like Girard, I think with Makar, Byram, Timmins, coming into the lineup it would make perfect sense and he'd thrive in that position, I just don't seem staying with the Avs long enough to see it. Even as a big Z fan I also agree that he has played horrible and hasn't even been remotely the physical threat that he can be.
This might be worse than the gif McMetal posted elsewhere earlier
12:30. Puck drop at 5 AM. Time to raid the liquor cabinet.
Yes, I am upset that Zadorov is scratched.
Hahaha our D lineup is so bad for this game.
Just as I suspected.
I still love Z (the guy and the personality) but as a player, this benching is completely well-deserved. I would love to be a fly on the wall during discussions between Bednar and Z. I'd really like to know what Bedsy is telling him to do. I almost feel like the head-games have taken a toll on Z but regardless....he deserves to be sat. Hell, he deserves to go get some tough love with Cronin and see if he can some magic on him the way he did Graves and is doing with Timmins.
