Come here for everything related to the Avs. Breaking news, trades, post-game analysis, and opinions by Angelo Stambene.

The team, to remaining Avalanche fans, had become a “next year” team. After each disappointing season ended, fans would say “next year is our year,” but a funny thing happened, they kept saying next year, and this year, they’re right. The Avalanche has returned from irrelevancy, and is asking the right question. Why not us?
