Since Brandon Yip went to the Preds, here is a recap of all those poor Avs guys who tried to wear the cursed #18. Unfortunately, this article is in Russian (and, frankly speaking, written by myself), so I used Google Translate. It messed up things too much (who's Dedmarsha?), and some information is murky, but the overall point is clear - #18 for the Avalanche is a no-go. I just had no time to translate it better than the machine did, sorry for that.
