2. Watch some Colorado Avalanche highlights from the past…
Although the Avalanche haven’t been around as long as the original six (Boston Bruins, Chicago Black Hawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs), there is still a rich history with the team.
Thankfully, Avalanche fans have been able to witness greatness three times in the team’s existence. Even when the Avalanche don’t win the Stanley Cup, it’s still fun to go back and watch some of the great players this team has had the pleasure of having.
When I first started watching hockey, I got to witness great players in Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Adam Foote, Patrick Roy, Rob Blake, Teemu Selänne and more.
If you are a young Colorado Avalanche fan who never got to see those players I just listed, it’s a great thing that YouTube is a thing these days.
You can also find out how different the game of hockey was back in those days. It’s truly remarkable the difference between then and now.
I know one day this activity will include watching highlights of Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar, specifically from this season. The greatness of hockey never stops.
