Or "Only Goc Forgives," take your pick.

Avs try to bounce back after a humiliating loss in St. Loo. Post-Versteeg Florida is as good a place as any to do that.

Gonna be out with the wife and friends at the Asian fusion place wolfing down sushi, so I'll probably miss this one. Which is a shame (no, really, it is) since I really wanted to see Barkov in action. Apparently the Avs still would've passed on Seth Jones and taken Barkov had they not won the draft lottery.

Oh FFS...Benoit out with a wrist injury. Meaning MATT HUNWICK will make his season debut.

Yeah, I am suddenly not so confident anymore.

And Dater says he'll play alongside Cory Sarich. :suicide:

Well, not at all surprised by the result. The Avs' luck has officially run out. That, along with some key injuries have left them very vulnerable. The inevitable slump has begun. Oh well, I said I'd enjoy this run as long as it lasted, and I did.

Now the Avs have to decide whether or not to make a trade--minor or major--to upgrade the blueline, or stand pat and let this thing play out, maybe call up a couple kids and see if they can do any better. I'd rather they do the latter, since any sort of trade for a defenseman will no doubt cost some major assets. Unfortunately, a corps consisting of Hejda/Johnson and, well, nothing else, simply won't win you any games. It's up to Sakic and Roy to see if they're okay with that, or if change needs to happen right now.
