Second place? That's just a fancy word for losing. Avs are 2-0, you're 0-3.Losing? Funny, that's just what the Avs are doing right now.
You've got to start somewhere - 2-1 win over the Stars last night, so we're doing something right, by staying in the hunt.
Avs are 3rd in a division where the Canucks are the only fucking team worth a damn in.
In your opinion. I'd say that there's 3 teams worth something (VAN, MIN and COL), which could change year on year.
The only other team that honestly has a chance of making the post season other than the Canucks right now int the Northwest division is Minnesota. And they're pushing 8th place right now in the Western Standings at the best. But hey 2 points so you're not far behind... Ofcourse, if that means the Canucks get a easy Playoff series against the Avs I'm fine with that.
I seriously think that we'll do a bit better than 8th - you may end up facing us in the playoffs, as it may be a 3-6 matchup. Who knows?
Oh and lets see, the cabinet does look empty without the Cup yes, but there's a number of other individual and team awards in there and that is something to say.
Ah, but there's no I in team. If Luongo doesn't bottle, you should be able to win the cup - the team you had last season was the best chance you've had and the changes this time around may have been a slight step back, but it's not killed you, as you still have the Sedins to build the team around.
So call me in 3 years once Colorado collects enough top draft picks to be a decent team again. But, by then, we'll be in difference conferences and you'll be happy that we don't face roll your entire team :P.
Pfft. We shall see. I'm confident that we're growing as a team and when Landeskog hits his stride with Matt Duchene centering him, we'll have something to shout about. When we find the net against you (February 15th), it'll be like a dam breaking.

A brief history of Rick DiPietro..
Be fair, you did miss the (brief) part where he didn't suck. 30-24-5 the season before and 32-19-9 in the seasons before and after the contract. Granted, he's a combined 37-50-11 since then, but that's professional sport.
Worst contract of all time. He is now having sports hernia surgery and is out for the rest of the season
Yeah. If they'd signed him to 5 years, they would have gotten rid of him by now.
