A new year for the Colorado Avalanche means some resolutions they should work on for the rest of the season.
The Colorado Avalanche are about to close out the year with what we hope is a bang.
It is that time of year again! The time of year where new year’s resolutions are in full swing. People are pondering how they can make a change to their lives in order to improve them. Determining what undesirable traits or behavior prevents themselves from accomplishing their personal goals!
Do you have any resolutions you would like to suggest to your Colorado Avalanche? I know this might seem like a tough question because the Colorado Avalanche is darn close to perfect! Picking out the undesirable traits is actually kind of easy though.

Let’s be honest, the Colorado Avalanche are not perfect, as no team is. As a fan of the Colorado Avalanche, we want them to improve and be the best possible team, which also means…hello flaws! Let’s get rid of them!
With the time of year, I chuck it up to one problem and, therefore, one resolution. The team needs to regain its focus! It is that wonderful time of year with all the delicious foods and neglection of responsibilities. The time of year where for a brief second we can take a pause from our turbulent work schedules and breathe in the chaos of the holidays.
Eating a lot of food, this is the time of year people take breaks from their diets and their fitness activities. This is the time of year where we try to fully enjoy our life and the people we hold dear. Would that not be the same for the Colorado Avalanche?
We all know the difficulty of getting back into the swing of things; regaining our routine that we broke for a couple weeks or more. It is time to revisualize our goals, reenact our commitment to greatness and win the Stanley Cup!
Now if you have been watching the games, which I know you have, then you also know we keep losing it in the third period. This is not acceptable. It is difficult to watch the Avalanche’s lead dwindle in the third. The next thing you know it is tied!
It is a great game, it is thrilling, it is nerve-racking, you are on the edge of your seats. Maybe you’re frustrated and annoyed, screaming from the stands “HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?! COME ON AVS, YOU GOT THIS!” Then it goes to overtime and you are squinting so hard because you are nervous about what is going to happen, losing your voice in the process of it all.
We have faith in our team, and then they lose it. It is a crushing feeling. It is the feeling of defeat. We know this is not our team, we know the amount of skill and talent that the Colorado Avalanche players hold. We know we should have won it, so why didn’t we?
Every teammate has been on a very small “vacation” but it has been time away from the game. They will, of course, naturally get back into the swing of things, but I say, it is time to strap up our skates and take what is rightfully ours!. There is no time to lose and no time to waste.
The Colorado Avalanche need to keep the lead. Lock in better defensive skills to prevent the other team from scoring goals. This is not a knock at the goalie by any means, because if you look at Grubauer or Francouz’s stats, they have still been playing good games. I am talking about the team factor in defense. Everyone needs to show up, communicate, and defend the goal!
This one resolution would help the Colorado Avalanche stay in the lead, prevent overtime, and allow them to finish strong! We’ve got this! LET’S GO AVS and LET’S GO DEFENSE! Happy New Year’s Avs fans!
