That is almost always going to happen when you get rid of such a bad coach. A lot of teams go through the new coach phase of sudden rapid improvement, that is how Bruce Boudreau won his coach of the year award in Washington.
The Avs have a lot of good young players up front, but the back position still lacks quality. @Baaaston and @Washington should be good tests of how the defence stacks up.
