A loose definition of the word INSANITY:
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Hiring the same coach who couldn't win 4 years ago with clearly a more talented roster than the one he's taking over is as close to a pure example of insanity as I have seen for quite some time.
Why in the world did the Avalanche jump the gun on this situation? The ONLY possible reason they promoted Granato had to have been that he was getting an offer from anothe team and the Avs wanted to cut that idea off at the pass. It's the only thing that makes sense.
They had lots of time to conduct interviews with other candidates. Why the hurry? If Granato was the absolute best coach that the Avs could hire, then why wasn't Coach Q fired at some point during the season and Granato given the reigns?
This makes zero sense. Zero. It's just mind-numbing.
Penfold (and Drew), I couldn't agree more. This makes zero sense.
The only point I would add is, the AVS front office is a tight "family." Most everything happens from within, so I don't think he got an outside offer, he was the only candidate within other than a minor league coach.
I was really hoping for a new direction to the team. Now this will be the same, only a bit "faster."
The Wings will still dominate us. We'll compete for the NW, but lose out, and finish 7th, 8th, or 9th in the Western Conference.
Just when it appears the Avs are looking forward, they take a massive step backwards.
Has Sakic had enough of this franchise yet? All of the stumbling and bumbling of the management of the Avs has to have him thinking either retirement or of jumping ship and playing out his remaining years elsewhere. It would make perfect sense for him to hook on with the Canucks. This way, he could play for him hometown team, be near family and friends, and also be right there when it comes time for the 2010 Olympic Games. It would be a near perfect scenario for him.

Yeah, because why stay with a team that was in the second round of the playoffs when you can leave for a stellar franchise in Vancouver that didn't even MAKE the playoffs.
Joe's going to no other team. He's made it more than clear that he wants to play his entire career with this organization.
Joe is not coming back to NHL. He's going to take a year off and come back just to play in the Olympic Games.
He wants to retire gracefully. He's not the kind of player who will hang on just for the sake of hanging on. The Avalanche aren't going to be a contender next year. There is no reason for Joe to play in the NHL in 08-09.
I for one hope he does retire. He'll be missed, but the Avalanche have to find a way to move on. They have been trying to hold back time for far too long.
Who Is Tom? writes:
Yeah. Who's this Tom fellow everyone keeps talking about? I haven't seen a person named Tom posting here. What's the deal? Was he a popular person on this forum? For all this fuss to keep continuing about him, he must have been a really great guy. Sounds like a cool cat to have a beer with.

Why do you keep posting Tom just keeps posting? Why, oh, why do you insist on posting and posting?
Who is this person who keep posting under the handle of :
"Tom just keeps posting?"
I think you go to my son's elementary school. You're four and a half years old, right? Your name is Timmy? And you just recently started wetting the bed?
Yeah. That's you. I knew you sounded familiar.
