Yeah, Mack is one of the top three players in hockey right now, but if this team doesn't win a Cup this year I don't see this team as anything more than a good team that didn't win when it mattered.

    Colorado had the sixth youngest team in the league entering the 2020 season. The Rangers started the season as the youngest team in the league.
    Yes, it does depend on greatly if we win the cup this year or not. We have the team to do it. Which comes back to Joes question about us being a contender which we both agree we damn sure are. I think this is the best team I have seen from top to bottom. That will not come through until the year is over and we hoist the cup. If we do not, then obviously, they are not. I still maintain that this squad has the most talent at all positions across the board and top lines to bottom then I have seen before. To be in conversations with the cup team is pretty damn awesome. I do not know what the projections are for this team if we had a regular length season, but I bet it would be close to cup team. We have set or tied records from that team with wins, points, etc. And we will not have guys retiring at the end of this season like when we lost Borque and then blake and then fopa moved on (before he came back) and super joe.

    We have the core for a while and enough cap space to keep our big guns when they are up next couple years.

    To expand on how good we are this year Northy, I saw while watching the game last night that the Avs are 1st in EVERY category League wide.

    Goals
    points
    assists
    points for defenseman
    goals for defenseman
    Goal differential
    etc etc etc etc.


    Every Category lol. No team is close. I wish I could screen shot the broadcast from last game when Peter Mcnabb was talking about it while it was on the screen. It was pretty amazing and hilarious. Tampa, Toronota, Vegas, Caps, canes, Isles, those are the other really really good teams. This is a cup run team. Legit cup favorite possibly. I have not looked at the betting sites,but I bet you we are the favored club.

    Then you better go tell Peter McNabb because they posted it on TV against the blues 2 nights ago. Anyone watching the game saw it.

    Default Colorado Avalanche have three games postponed after third player enters COVID-19 protocols

    The Colorado Avalanche will not play until at least Thursday after a third player was placed into the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday, the league announced.

    Three games are being postponed at this time: against the Los Angeles Kings on Friday and Sunday and against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday.

    The NHL said in a statement that, pending test results, the Avalanche could reopen their facilities for practice Wednesday and play Thursday against the Blues.

    The Avalanche had canceled their Friday morning skate before the postponement announcement. They had canceled the skate two other times in the past week, on April 9 and Wednesday, but had played that night both times.

    Defenseman Bowen Byram and goaltender Philipp Grubauer were previously placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.
