08:24 AM ET 04.10 | Jean-Sebastien Giguere took his swings after Monday's loss, opening discussion on just how much might be wrong with the Avalanche. If the minds of the last-place Avs are already somewhere else as a horrible NHL season winds down, what is coach Joe Sacco still doing here? Sacco is earnest and hardworking, a hockey grinder at heart. But he obviously has lost this team. ... [Sacco's] dismissal should be expected. Of course, not everything wrong with the Avalanche is the fault of Sacco. A hose should be turned on to clean out the front office. But when a team loses interest, it is an ugly condemnation of both the players and the coach hired to motivate them.

Could be worse. They could end up in Edmonton and have a motivational speaker for a coach.

The Stastny's and Tardif were long gone before Quebec moved south and Sacco never actually played for the Nords/Avs.

I realise that, I was making a point. And Sacco was mentioned because he is there as coach
