Colorado Avalanche: Saying Goodbye to the 2014-15 Season

8 of 8

50-Point Scorers

The Colorado Avalanche became the only NHL team this season to have six different players earn 50 points or more:

When I first heard that statistic, I questioned what it meant. After all, the Avalanche’s scoring woes this season are well known. How could they be the only NHL team with six 50+ points-earners and be non-playoff bound?

Well, I can’t answer that part. However, I can answer what it means — the Avs aren’t going to stay frustrated in scoring. Two of the players who could have been on that list very easily — Nathan MacKinnon and Erik Johnson — spent a significant part of the season on injured reserve.

Imagine when it’s the five forwards above scoring 60+ points and Johnson and Barrie hitting the 50-point mark. That is not only possible next season, it’s likely. The Avs are built to score, and they’ve got it figured out now.

So, I got to ask — is it September yet? I can’t wait for the new season of the Avs New Age to start. Until then, farewell to the 2014-15 season.
