Embracing Mediocrity - Giguere Speaks

In an article by Terry Frei in today's Post.   To quote one of my favorite bands, the Talking Heads, he seems to be "talking a lot, but not saying anything."  Except that he seems annoyingly happy/satisfied with the status quo, which is pretty damn sucky right now. 

Among the most annoying of quotes, when assessing the season so far:

 "The first half of the season, we kept ourselves in the position where I thought we were fine."

So, we were fine hanging in and out of the playoffs, hovering around the mythical .500 mark and defininitely in the lower half of the league?  That is "meeting expectations" these days?

He also seems willing to give our goaltenders more time, our coach more time, and still stands by his "difficult to make moves" stance.  In other words, aim low, reach new lows.  Frankly, I'm not surprised by anything, but very disappointed he still has a job. is a fan community, allowing members to post their own thoughts and opinions on the Colorado Avalanche and hockey in general.
