Kukla's Korner Hockey

The Average Avalanche

from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News,

Not long ago the Colorado Avalanche were a prime destination for elite NHL players. The franchise was known for augmenting its already strong lineup by trading for stars such as Ray Bourque, Rob Blake and Theo Fleury or signing marquee free agents like Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya (the original, more accomplished version of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter).

Unfortunately for Avs fans, those days are no more.

Now, under GM Greg Sherman and an ownership in no mood to spend anywhere close to the salary cap ceiling, Colorado routinely puts together a middle-of-the-pack attack that nobody seriously envisions as a Stanley Cup threat.
