Time to change our coaching staff

Colorado Avalanche roster

After losing to Minnesota playoffs are still far far away. I don`t want to act nervously. And I consider this very carefully. It`s time to change our coaching staff. We advanced to playoffs last year because nobody has seen us as contender so we could won several games at the beginning of the season. Craig Anderson had career year. Now the view is different. There are a lot of questionable decisions made by coaching staff. We mix the lines all the time so that nobody could use to each other. We put Matt Humwick in the mix despite his poor poor play. We use three undersized defensemen in our linup in one time. We send Galiardi back to LEM. We use two undersized defenseman as a pair in a game. We could not take full advantage from our players (Yip, Galiardi, Stastny). We don`t have our own identity. And we are terrible in terms of consistency both in a game time situation (we often dominate in first period and suddenly seem to get lost) and in long term (look at our win streaks, there are very very short). I think it is last bell to do something. We have a lot of talent - lot of offensive talented guys (Duchene, Stazz, Duke, Doctor, CGDS, Liles, Shattenkirk), nice shutdown staff (Radar, Gali, Winnik, Dupuis, O`Byrne) and despite missing a lot of time because of injuries we could play well and be in playoff contention. Our team is built with patience and wise so we expect the same from our coaching staff. And I think we could do this only by hire another coaching staff.
