    Couple of interesting charts. Avs aren't playing great based on the eye test but the numbers suggest they're not terrible either. Even average goaltending over the last little while likely would've meant more points.




    This is the first time I've seen this shot chart. Click on the Avs to laugh at Bourque.

    Now if we could work on rantanens fancy stats. Then we could have another top line player!

    Meh. Serves the team better, in all honesty, if Grubauer can take over the starting role. That 5.9M coming off the books can be mighty handy this summer.

    It's easy to explain, really. AVS play differently (ie: better possession game) when they are trailing than when they are leading...which is why we have good advanced stats when we lose and ****ty ones when we win. The way we protect leads is often perilous, to say the least.

    Reminds me of the hilariousness of the Avs PR campaign in the off-season after the 48 point season. It was like commercial about how much value you have in your trash can.

    Not according to the Avs' website but sometimes they're a bit late with the update.
    I don't think they'll call him up during the road trip anyway. I don't even think they'll call him up as long as the two other guys are both healthy.

    I'm more interested in if/when Zadorov joins the team on this road trip.

    Why would they? Worst record in the league since the beginning of December. Laughable goaltending most of the time. We are doing just great, no need to try anything new.

    Chances are slim for sure. But this team needs "something" - and i mean something else than Mac being pissed - to turn things around. No idea what else to do because i can't imagine for the life of me that Sakic is even thinking about a trade to spark things up.

    Wilson should be back soon. That's something, right? #Babysteps

    If either of the goalies play a **** game like the last two and Avs outplay the opponent, I'm not watching anymore until Francouz is called up. The biggest reason for the slide has been subpar goaltending and I can't stand watching that night in night out.

    The "something" they need is decent goaltending. There has been nothing wrong with the way they have been playing lately. Well...except the PK maybe.

    Watch them put Landy, MacK and Rants out and immediately get scored on always, because the Avs don't practice OT.
