Colorado Avalanche 2014-2015 Outlook
They lost Paul Stastny to free agency, but replaced him with future Hall of Famer Jarome Iginla, which is close to a wash. They traded P.A. Parenteau to Montreal for Danny Briere and lost backup goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere to retirement. And they named Joe Sakic the new GM while demoting Greg Sherman, which was shocking because everybody sort of assumed they had already done that last year.
Also, everyone on the roster got older. That’s not exactly breaking news, since the same could be said for every team, but it seems especially important in Colorado’s case, because this is a team led by an extremely young core. Guys like Matt Duchene, Nathan MacKinnon, Ryan O’Reilly, and Gabriel Landeskog should all still be improving with each year that goes by. If this team of kids racked up 112 points last year, how much better could they be this year?
The Colorado Avalanche franchise was originally founded in 1972 in Quebec, Canada as part of the World Hockey Association (WHA). The franchise was one of the more successful members of the WHA, winning the Avco World Trophy in 1977 and reaching the WHA finals in 1975. Because of the Quebec Nordiques success in the WHA, in 1979, the NHL awarded expansion franchises to the Quebec Nordiques and 3 other WHA teams – the Edmonton Oilers, the Winnipeg Jets and the Hartford Whalers. The franchise kept the Quebec Nordiques team name even after it joined the ranks of the NHL. As an NHL team, the Quebec Nordiques achieved very little success. From 1979 through 1995, the Quebec Nordiques won 40 games in a season only 4 times and finished first in the Adams Division only once in 1986. The Quebec Nordiques advanced to the Wales Conference Finals twice in 1982 and 1985, but the team never advanced to a Stanley Cup Finals series.
Quebec City was the smallest market in the league and the team struggled financially. In 1995, the COMSAT Entertainment Group purchased the franchise and moved the team to Denver, Colorado where the franchise has thrived. Within days of the announcement of the sale, the franchise sold 12,000 season tickets and the team became known as the Colorado Avalanche. In its first season in Denver, the Colorado Avalanche won 47 games good for 104 points and won the Pacific Division, finishing with the 2nd best points total in the Western Conference. The Colorado Avalanche defeated the Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Blackhawks and the 1995 Presidents’ Trophy Champion Detroit Red Wings en route to the franchise’s first ever Stanly Cup Finals. The Colorado Avalanche swept the Florida Panthers 4-0 to win the franchise’s first Stanley Cup Trophy. The Colorado Avalanche won the franchise’s 2nd Stanley Cup trophy following the 2000-2001 NHL season by defeating the defending champion New Jersey Devils in a hotly contested 7-game series.
The Colorado Avalanche have retired the following players’ numbers: Patrick Roy’s #33; Ray Bourque’s #77; and Wayne Gretzky’s #99 (retired league-wide by the NHL on February 6, 2000).
