The Main Stream: Colorado Avalanche Power Rankings Roundup

What's the word concerning the Colorado Avalanche around the web? Our weekly collection (with a scoop of The Denver Post's Adrian Dater) will fill you in and then some.

This week: Avs fall from NHL.com's 16, Dater sips his glass half-full, and a whole lotta 19's -- a good omen?

Outlet Rank Last Week What They're Saying
19 18 In terms of points, the Avalanche enter the week in relatively good shape, only two points behind the Sharks for the eighth seed. The problem is the Avalanche have already played 80 games and every team they're competing with still has at least one game in hand.
19 18 Time and a 1-3-1 run look like they'll conspire to keep the Avs on the outside looking in as they have only two games remaining and will need a ton of help to sneak into the playoffs.
19 19 The Avalanche have missed the playoffs in consecutive years for the first time since relocating to Denver. The Nordiques did not make the playoffs in consecutive years over their final eight seasons in Quebec City.
18 14 Avs tied with Red Wings for fewest shootout losses (two) this season.
- 13 Not ranked
17 19
Despite what appears will be the team's third non-playoff season in their last four, coach Joe Sacco and GM Greg Sherman will return. A couple more pieces added to the puzzle and this should be a team good enough for postseason next year, though it still has a puncher's chance of getting in this spring.
19 17 Snapped a four-game losing streak with Friday's win over Calgary, but that slide may be enough to keep the Avs on the outside looking in, two points back of a playoff spot with only two games left on their schedule.
