Pierre LeBrun of ESPN answers the rants of the fans,
Pierre, I’m officially calling for both Joe Sacco and Greg Sherman’s heads in Colorado. The team is pathetic right now and they haven’t changed a thing. The price paid for Varlamov was extremely high and now it’s about to burn the Avs in the worst way if they don’t change course soon. The team has been at the cap floor for the past few seasons and the ownership shows no sign of caring. Can someone make Stan Kroenke sell the team to someone who cares?
My take (Lebrun): I don’t blame Avs fans for feeling this way. The Erik Johnson deal in particular is really haunting them. That Washington has Colorado’s first-round pick next June for Semyon Varlamov? Ouch. What’s dangerous is that if most Denver fans think like you, the marketplace could be lost. This was once an automatic sellout. Now they can’t give tickets away. That’s what is really scary.
