This team lacks personality, passion, and any shred of competitive edge. They have yet to win a convincing game this year (the closest being a 4-1 win over Edmonton back in October).
It's clear that the problem is coaching--in addition to the utter lack of heart this team is displaying, they are also among the league's worst special teams. Their offense is probably the worst production of any Avs team, ever. The defense...well, I doubt there's a handful of guts amongst the lot of them.
Mark my words: If Granato is still behind the bench 10 games from now, the Avs will miss the playoffs this year.
