Avs Miss Foppa

from the Denver Post,
The hockey season officially ended for the Avalanche at 10:34 p.m. Thursday, with a 4-1 loss to Anaheim. But it was all over for your local NHL heroes long ago. Circle Aug. 3, 2005, on the calendar in black. That was the day the Avalanche died. That was the night Colorado said bye-bye to superstar Peter Forsberg. But know what was far worse? That was also the night Colorado signed center Pierre Turgeon and defenseman Patrice Brisebois, two regrettable moves by general manager Pierre Lacroix that mocked the Avs as they were swept from the playoffs by Anaheim. The Avs we knew and loved are gone.
