Scoring Difficulty

The Colorado Avalanche’s scoring difficult goes along with the power play. The Avs do not play a game based on defense.

Erik Johnson once described Avalanche hockey thus:

"“We’re a fast team. We’re based off speed. We’re based off transition. We’re based off forechecks. We’re establishing that. We have some of the faster forwards in the league. When they’re going, everybody else is going.”"

Yet the young guns failed to produce, and the veterans… Jarome Iginla was never meant to be the scoring leader on the team. That’s not the role he was brought in for. Yet all the young guns went through stretches of time when they couldn’t score a goal to save their lives. Remember captain Gabriel Landeskog and December? Yeah, that wasn’t much fun.
