Due to the fact that Kroenke pretty much let the Avalanche fall into unknown for the last few years hockey has been hard to get excited for. This year however with Roy as the coach and Sakic as the VP of hockey operations the Avs are looking very tough to beat. I like our team a LOT. They have speed, size, and skill. I think they will be the surprise team of the year and I think they will give any team problems.
