This is going to be a fun team to watch. I don't know how good they are, but you can tell they are going to play all three periods and bring it every game. They've been practicing up tempo all training camp. There is a different feel to this team. I'm not even that into hockey and I have been excited about this team since Sakic took over. It actually reminds me exactly of the Broncos when Fox and Elway came to town. I expect a scrappy team that will keep games close and will be dangerous all year regardless of talent level. With realignment in the league, it's like a fresh start and the Avs can reinvent themselves.
