Colorado Avalanche prospects — all prospects, to be honest — go to prospect and training camps with such high hopes. And while I don’t want to say most of them are going to have their hopes dashed… the truth is the reality of talent and skill at an NHL level is going to dash some of those hopes like a giant foot on an anthill.
However, some young prospects have it in them to be future stars — or at least regular players in the NHL. I’m attending the Avalanche prospects development camp this morning, so I’ll have a full report — and perhaps more insight — later today. First blush, here are four players I think could actually make the Colorado Avalanche roster at some point in the future — maybe even in the up coming season.
