Around The League In 30 Days: Colorado

Lightning players will be skating in Colorado two days before Christmas when they play their one and only game against the Avalanche on December 23. Of course, it is my belief that the Avs would have to be flying high if they thought there was a real chance to make it to the Finals this season, but that’s why they play the games! We never know if we will be seeing them later in the post season, or if our holiday season match-up will be the only one this time around.

For now, though, let’s take a look at what Mile High Sticking’s very own Stephen Crociata has to say about the Colorado outlook:

Last season was the worst season in Avalanche franchise history, and that is not figuratively it is 100% literal. The Avalanche in 2010-11 posted the fewest total points in franchise history thanks in large part to a disgraceful second half of the season, which saw them  win rarely during the final four months of the season. The Avs had no business not being the worst team in hockey last year, but they are lucky enough to not only be in the same conference as Edmonton they are in the same division as well. Allowing them to avoid last place in the NW. Yet despite the fact I have completely ripped my team a new one I wouldn’t change a thing about last season. Why? Gabriel Landeskog.
