Created by: Pond_Duck
Initial Creation Date: Jan 22, 2021
Published: Jan 22 at 9:42
Team: 2020-21 Colorado Avalanche
Team Explanation
Look, Kadri has had an awful start to the season, it showed especially in last nights game.
He played awful.

And for Byram, he played okay. Definitely not going to be as good as Makar. Seem him as maybe a 2nd line d man.

Lol. @coga16

@Pond_Duck I think this is a bit of an overreaction. There was no preseason. Yeah, they should have their legs under them but let's not press the "blow it up" button just yet. As for Byram, we won't know for sure until he plays a bit more. Not everyone comes into the league as Makar did...

It many be a bit of an overreaction, but so far he hasn’t contributed anything positive to the Avalanche, and someone like RNH definitely can. But agree we shouldn’t blow this up *yet*.

Give it time guys. Slow starts for a few players this year. 20 games into the season deserves consideration. 30 is talking time.

O I'm definitely frustrated. There have been a number of guys who need to show up: Kadri, Saad, Compher, and Donskoi. They've all been invisible, and that's not acceptable. If in 2-3 weeks time, we're saying the same thing, then yes. It'll be time to do something about it. I really wish we could get Kaut into the lineup somewhere. He'd be an upgrade over Donskoi.

Yeah but 20 games in is a lot more than it usually is, remembering it is a 56 game season and the Avalanche could really need that second line scoring.

Lol that is true, I’m not trying to be a habs/leafs fan, but all I’m saying is just I’m not satisfied with Kadri’s play.

you are a liar bc you are saying Avs fans...one guy who is passionate about the Avs in @pond_duck can go over the deep end from time to time but a good dude who rolls back his reactions after talking through it with other fans

dont think anyone is really happy with the way hes playing but game 4, its not like its a normal start of the season for guys so its hard to speak for them.....2 weeks of practice and thrown into the season regular games, who knows maybe they are going to be a slower starter for some not having a normal training camp and some pre-season games to get going.

too small of a sample size to start making any major decisions based on it, but kadris start has been lacklustre to start but confident he will get rolling

Maybe the Oilers will take the trade (yea It ain't happening) but Oilers might be happier if Barrie is included in the trade too. 3.75m cap space should get you a real NHL player.

He isn't alone and while it likely is an overreaction, it happened. So getting all pissy with me was needless. As I have said Kadri gets in his own way. It's just a fact and as he approaches 30, I doubt it will ever change.

Thanks! Next time I will not go full leafs fan and I’ll be less overreactive! It’s just when we lose a game like that to the kings it’s hard not to.
