Today In Colorado Avalanche History


February 28, 1999 - The Colorado Avalanche acquire forwards Theo Fleury and Chris Dingman from the Calgary flames for Rene Corbet, Wade Belak, a 2000 2nd round pick (Jarret Stoll) and future considerations (Robyn Regehr). This was a big deadline deal for the Avs (Fleury already had 30 goals on the season). And Fleury played well, with 24 points over the final 15 regular season games and 17 points in 18 playoff games, although the Avalanche lost to Dallas in the Conference Finals. Perhaps already seeing some warning signs of off-ice issues (Fleury missed a playoff game due to the "flu"), the Avs did not re-sign Fleury the following summer.
