The Colorado Avalanche’s memorable decade has come to a close. As we embark on a new decade, let’s look at some defining moments.
The Colorado Avalanche have had a memorable decade between 2010 and 2020. Memorable in a good way because the team is trending up.
So much has happened in this decade, which I suppose is to be expected. We’ve seen players, coaches, and general managers come and go. We’ve seen the ebb and flow not just of a single season, but of a whole set of seasons.
This decade represented a turning point for the Colorado Avalanche. We saw one era end and a new age begin. As happens any time you’re a sports fan, you have laughter, tears, and moments of pure frustration. You’re in it with your heroes while everyone else is the enemy.
For this post, I curated a list of the team’s memorable moments. They’re by no means the only memorable moments — there are millions of those. And they’re not even necessarily the most important moments. Rather, what follows is a series of moments that basically define the ebbs and flows of the decade for the team.
I hope you enjoy the ride.
