Here is a piece that was just posted in the Denver Post.
It is about Granato's second stint as the coach of the Avalanche. It sparked quite a bit of conversation in the Denver Post site, and if read I imagine that Av's fans here will talk quite a bit.
Personally I believe this team is a better than .500 team, but you can't be that with .250 management. Granato may be a great head coach, just not in Denver. Been there far too long, and reality is that his voice is not likely heard. This piece says that he is honest, which is good, but he also has to be able to motivate. Sometimes that requires a shoe in the butt of a player who isn't performing. The players seem too comfortable with him, like he is one of the guys.
Hope this article can spark some discussion here as well.
