The Colorado Avalanche is made up of young, talented players. There are also a few veterans who know how to win. They are coached by a Hall of Famer who knows how to dig deep to win.

And they have learned from this year. As frustrating as the season was for us, the fans, it was exponentially more frustrating to the players living through it. I have confidence the players will draw on a well of strength developed in this season of adversity.

We’re watching them learn and grow in a way we didn’t get to witness with that All Star team of the 1990s. Their eventual success will be all the more rewarding for the journey we take together.
