2001 Avs may be the best team ever. I know that's a homer thing to say. But imagine. Bourque. Roy. Sakic. Forsberg. Blake. Hejduk. Foote.
yesterday at 23:20
Joe Sakic Peter Forsberg Patrick Roy Claude Lemeuix Sandis Ozolinsh Adam Deadmarsh Mike Ricci Uwe Krupp Adam Foote Mike Keane Valeri Kamensky Alexei Gusarov Stephan Yelle Marc Crawford as Head Coach and Pierre Lecroix making all the big deals. As much as I love the 2000-2001 Colorado Avalanche squad, the 1995-1996 had a better team and better coaching.

I hate to admit it but some red wings teams rivaled our avs as best ever. Those early 90s pittsburgh teams were pretty ridiculous too. Jagr lemieux k. Stevens recchi and francis. What an offense. And barasso in net aint bad. But i think roy and hasek put the wings and avs over those pittsburgh teams.

Time to replace the GM. Great player, o e of my all time favorites, great captain, but it is time for the Avs to move on from Joe Sakic

You know what....yes bad year, still my team regardless!!!!! Somebody has to finish last to come back and win.....look at all the Canadian teams!!!! GO AVZ GO in 2017/18

I'm a fan for life, but that being said, no single player is more important than the team as a whole. Some real changes have to be made, and if that means dealing guys like Landy and Dutchy, deal away.

Management needs to change this organization needs a culture change as well as the players. Personally a lot of it falls on kroneke. If this organization wants to make a big change we'll can bednar and hire DU coach that guy's a proven winner that will change the culture of this team.

This season definately did not start off on the right foot, or the left for that matter... either way, next season will be better! There's no reason to think why not. Only way to go now is up!! Let's Go Avs!!!

Landy scored five power play goals this season, the most on the team.

Can we please ditch these uggo jerseys? The avs are one of only two teams who still use this style, it's disgusting. Go back to the original design. Also, bring back the foot.

Tim Army effect, how he still has a job is mind boggling. It doesn't take an expert to see the Avs PP was horribly run all season long

Are they trying to say that's an awesome stat? That's absolute crap, it's sad when that's a players best stat for the year. Or at least a player like landeskog. 5 ppg's.... yay...... let's get real, that sucks

Sucks though... knowing Sakic, were probably going to draft another center with our first round pick and not a Defenseman. Granted, I can't blame him. I wouldn't pass up on Nolan Patrick/Nico Hischier
yesterday at 05:22
Knowing our luck we'll probably lose this one too! I kid, hopefully we get a good pick!

I don't know where all these young guys came from, but if Jost, Grimaldi, and Compher are in the lineup for the next few years, we're going to have the most offensive depth I thinks we've ever had. Especially once they start to get better and better.

So, the question is: can and will the Avs and the coaching staff invest the time and money in these youngsters to get them up to NHL playoff level skill and effort? I am emphatically hoping "Yes"
04/21/2017 at 15:45
Lets not waste the talent we have and the talent that these guys will develop. Come on AVS get your act together next year and play for 60 minutes each game!
04/22/2017 at 16:06
Yep, and it only took time to show that they're worthless. Two goalies?? C'mon man!! When Roy played, we didn't need to throw in a different one to see if things would get better. Even with Aebischer, (inconsistent as he was) we could stand on one goalie. The fact that the Avs started two ROOKIE goaltenders in the same year, shows some serious infrastructure issues at the corporate level. Sorry to say, but I think Sakic is most of the problem.

That was the second hat I lost this last season... First was the home opener when Joe Colborne scored his Hat Trick against the Dallas Stars. Watcht the replays of both those games and you see them right in front of the crease... Digging out the goals. Need more of that next season!
04/21/2017 at 01:19
Mikko had a great rookie season. Unfortunately it was lost amidst one of the worst seasons by an NHL team. But kudos for always trying to look for the silver lining. Wld be better appreciated if the product were free.

I was there! Was amazing. First AVs and first NHL game ever. Got this at a discount because if that guy!

Sad that a rookie was the leader in goals when you have #1, #2 & #3 picks not being leaders and underperforming. First to go has to be Duchene. Tired of his excuses. He's supposed to make his teammates better. He's a selfish player and a terrible mentor for our young players. Bye Felicia!
04/20/2017 at 15:26
Two goals shy of the wins this season. Pathetic. Stop supporting a team that keeps getting worse and yet ticket prices keep going up people. Support DU!!!

Props to rantanen but how sad is it that dutchy landy mack and barrie all didnt make the 20 goal mark?

Douchene (yes I know, I spelled it that way on purpose) always mails in the last couple of months of the season so he can be fresh for Team Canada. We can't trade him soon enough.
04/20/2017 at 07:32
Will be surprised if Duchene is an Av come October. But hey, if Sakic keeps asking for ridiculous returns, as if he's trading Sidney Crosby, then Duchy might be around longer.
04/20/2017 at 04:17
They will probably play the best they have ever played. Why play hard for the Stanley Cup when you can play for a gold medal in the off season?

I wouldn't say he "stepped up". He more or less constantly got hung out to dry. Probably played as good as any goalie on that team would have.

My goodness, please stop posting. It's beyond embarrassing. There isn't enough sugar in Willy Wonka's factory to sweeten this turd of a season.

Used to watch him play major-junior when he played for Seattle and would come down to Portland. He was great then, and great now that he's in the big show too! Good luck at the tourney, Picks!

Martin is really good. He wasn't ready for the NHL this year, but he is ahead of where he was supposed to be at the beginning of last season. He needs another year or two, but he is a dark horse to make a real impact in the NHL.
The less said about Smith, the better.

I still think Varly at 100 percent is one of the top 10 best in the league. So I don't mind keeping him as long as we build a solid defensive core around him. Idk how the Avs don't address that problem?..
04/19/2017 at 17:26
Without better defense he might as well be in Vegas. They burned him out. Funny how if Roy was able to do what he wanted then things would be much different I feel.
04/19/2017 at 20:00
If Varly gets back to 100%, he can't be our savior ... we need better D, more effective breakouts, a more potent offense, and better passing ... even Varly can't save us if we're challenged in all these areas

True. Unfortunately he's probably the most streaky player in the NHL. So, good luck when you buy your tickets. You cld go a month watching the most amazing plays and another 8 weeks watching him do nothing. Frankly, I'll take consistency night out night in than greatness every other month.
True fans speak truth no matter how bitter.
04/19/2017 at 00:34
Can you guys stop posting season stuff until after playoffs? Every post just reminds me of the crappy season we just had... just let it die so we can look forward to draft.
04/19/2017 at 00:43
Personally I think Duchene is one of the reasons why didn't do well this year. He does this and doesn't finish more often than not. instead he turns the puck over and why is it always down the right wall?
04/18/2017 at 18:40.
Dutchy led the league in faceoff percentage and shattered our single-season record as well.

Great. Now learn how to play some defense since that is part of the job requirements of a center. And show some effort when the puck isn't on your stick. And stop being afraid to grind in the corners on both offense and defense. Learn all of that, and we might have the makings of a true center!
Patrick Achneepineskum Holt
04/19/2017 at 19:29
If Duchene were to be traded, I think Columbus would be a good fit. They have an abundance of Dmen to reinforce our backline. With Zach Werenski emerging as a top 2 dman, they'd be comfortable giving up one of their top 4. What's the one thing that Columbus struggled against Pittsburgh with? Speed. Duchene has the speed to help Columbus create chances. Since the Jackets have a solid backend, they don't have to worry about Duchene's lack of defensive play.
04/19/2017 at 04:31
A LOT of Duchene on the Avs social lately. Must be shopping him pretty hard. "Hey, look at how great this guy is!" Julian Talavera Ryan Houchen

But... Will they still be "friends" after he's either traded or let go by the Avalanche come summer? I like Duchene, always have.. his heart and soul is with the Colorado Avalanche and has been since his childhood but I can see him next season on another team, Nashville being his favorite city to go play in, I can see him there. I can only hope he stays in Colorado and the team can flourish with him in the lineup. We shall wait and see....

It's his only skill. If he could have nothing but breakaways he'd be valuable, trade him while people still think he's good. Let them have a breakaway only player and let's get one that can play the rest of the game!

For years management over valued "the young" talent on this team.
Roy knew they were over rated and when REAL change wasn't forth coming walked.
He was right.
Sakic has been in over his head from day one. Most former star players dnt turn out to be Elway.

I'm guessing that we, as die hard Nordique/Avalanche fans, are not going to be able to impress upon the social media team what means most in a hockey season.
