The Scouts became the Rockies who became the New Jersey Devils. So, unlike the San Jose Sharks who are an extension of the Oakland Seals via the Minnesota North Stars (ask me one day when we have 24 hours), the current Colorado Avalanche have no real connection to the NHL past in Denver.
Nice uniforms in KC, though.
The Edmonton Oilers need to get out of Denver with two points tonight. This isn’t a season to predict lines or pairings, it’s a season to fasten your seat belts and pray for a miracle. The Avalanche have some quality veterans and some kids with skill. A laugher (for the Oilers) is just too much to hope for in a season when the good guys can’t kill a penalty to save their souls.
