from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs, No, technically the Avs aren’t out of the playoffs still, but we pretty much know it’s all over, don’t we? Monday’s washout performance in San Jose has pretty well stamped this Avalanche team of 2011-12 as: encouraging in many ways, but in the end, just not a good enough team still. When push came to shove, the Avs couldn’t win the big ones – again. It was right there for them: two out of three wins against Phoenix, Vancouver and San Jose, and they would have been in good shape for the playoffs. But they got one out of six possible points. Let’s face it, the Avs choked away a win the other day against Vancouver, the one game that stood out to me as proving these guys still aren’t ready for prime time yet. You just can’t lose 2-0 leads late in the second period on home ice in a really big game and call yourself a playoff-worthy team. continued
