Now I just got back from France so you'll have to pardon my french, but where the fuck did this come from? I get his points, I do, but "Will Colorado be better than the Minnesota Wild and their fresh injection of top-end talent?" Yes, yes they can and you know why? Because past Ryan Suter, their defense SUCKS. Scandella anyone? No? "Can the Avs hold off the increasingly desperate Calgary Flames and their ever-growing collection of veterans" That sentence is just adorable. Too many things to say, only laughter comes out. I usually like Proteau's articles, but safe to say I think he's far off on this one. And yes, of course I'm bias.
