Sellout Streak In Danger

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post,
Every year, we ask: Is the Avalanche sellout streak, the longest in the four major leagues, about to end? The question was appropriate to an unprecedented degree a year ago, with the NHL coming off a dark season and the Avalanche suddenly minus Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote. It is even more pertinent now, with Alex Tanguay, Rob Blake and Dan Hinote also gone and other signs pointing to a possible deterioration of the on-ice product. The gloomy prognosis could turn out to be wrong, of course, and as the re-signings of Joe Sakic and the others attest, it's not as if the Avalanche completely turtled on the contract front and let everyone depart. But the streak is in danger.
