"Some guys are more worried about their Vegas trip at the end of the season than playing the games, than playing every minute of the games," he told the Denver Post. "Quite frankly, I don't care about your Vegas trip right now."
The Avs, currently last in the NHL with 29 points and a 12-22-5 record, have only one win in their last 10 games and have scored the least amount of goals in the league.
"It's embarrassing," Giguere said. "I'm embarrassed to be here right now. It's not even funny."
"I don't know what it is. I've been around for 15 years in this league and I don't know what it is. I don't know why we seem like we don't care at points. I don't know, I don't know we seem like, you know -- some guys are fighting to show that they belong in the NHL, some guys are fighting for contracts. And it's just embarrassing, the way we, you know, the energy we have in the room and the way we approach practices and the way we approach this game. It's not how you're going to win any games in this league. I mean, this is a team (Calgary) that we can beat if we set our minds to it, and every day is the same story. I don't know what to say. I'm beyond words right now."
The Avs are believed to be tinkering with the idea of a complete management and coaching overhaul this off-season, which could result in changing up some of the roster.
It has been widely reported that head coach Joe Sacco and GM Greg Sherman's jobs will be reevaluated this summer, and it's possible the team makes a significant change to help turn the franchise around.
