Game 4 Avalanche Player Grades



EDMONTON, ALBERTA – A 5-4 loss for the Avs, in a game that really wasn’t as close as that score indicates. Let’s do some Avalanche grades:

Pavel Francouz (F) – A shockingly bad performance. Even Jared Bednar, who rarely singles out players publicly for criticism, said “He’s got to be better, for sure.” I’m not even sure he’ll play Game 5. He probably will, but it won’t shock me if Michael Hutchinson plays. Francouz was that bad in this game. His technique is all over the place right now. He’s a smallish guy, but he’s making himself even smaller by going down fast on every shot, often falling to his back and not being able to get back up in time.
