I am excited to see this team grow-up, however. Lots of young talent on the roster for sure.
It is early and the Avs are hot. When their hot streak ends and things settle down, we'll have a better idea of where they match up. That said, this is a good mix of youth and experience and they are adopting the attitude of their coach. Roy has them playing together and playing good team defense.
And unlike the Rockies who have finished in last or second to last place 12 of the last fifteen years, the Avs have actually fielded a team that perennially made the playoffs thirteen of fifteen years and won the Stanley Cup two times.
