It's all good in Avalanche land.

So the loss against Vancouver sucked.  It sucked about as bad as a regular season loss can suck (without suffering an injury to a star player, or missing the playoffs on the last day of the regular season). 

But, life in Avalanche land is pretty good these days.  Even their mediocre "lose one, win one" record since the olympics is on pace for enough points to get the Avs into the playoffs.  

At the beginning of the year, everyone picked this team to battle it out for last in the West.  Nobody thought Duchene would have such an immediate impact.  Nobody thought Anderson would be so solid, or that O'Reilly would make the team.  Nobody thought Stewart would start scoring goals like he's Cam Neely.  I'm certain nobody thought Galiardi would be putting up numbers, or guys like Yip would have any impact whatsoever.  Nobody thought the Avs would be here...including many of the people on this site.

And I never thought we'd actually get rid of Wolski (who I hate).  And what did the Avs get in return for him?  A guy who just needed to get out of Phoenix.  A guy who has put up 6 points in 4 games, looking like another hungry young player who is going to add to this team for years. (Plus, he's American.  Bonus.)

And the best part of all, is that this team is young, and still rebuilding.  It's not a patched together, plug the holes, hope to limp into the playoffs team.  This team is built for long term success.  Once again, we Avalanche fans are poised for a decade of being spoiled.
