Bright Future In Colorado

from Terry Frei at ESPN,

The best thing that can happen to the Avalanche now? (And this tunes out the whining from the comptroller and the ownership, the Stan Kroenke empire that also includes the Nuggets, the Pepsi Center, a new soccer stadium and soccer and lacrosse teams.) The best scenario is Colorado wins its final two, finishes on a 16-1-2 run, but barely misses the postseason.
Then, it ends with a “wait-‘til-next-year” flourish, not a loss to the Red Wings in the first round. And there is hope for the future. Considerable cap room will open up after the departure of, at the very least, Brisebois and Turgeon, plus there’s the elimination of $4.6 million in bonus payments to Sakic and Rob Blake that came due this season and counted against the Avalanche cap figure.
