Man, after a year of overachieving.. the Avs start off looking like they're going back to the playoffs.. then completely collapse in the 2nd half of the season.
Avs are just playing like they are expected to play now. They suck
Yeah, going into last season the Avs were expected to be HORRIBLE most of the analysis and predictions had the Avs finishing dead last in the league. However, behind the amazing play of Craig Anderson in net, young players like Duchene, and Stastny being able to step up and make an impact, and vets like Hejduk, Wolski, and Liles returning to form, the Avs were able to make a suprising run and have a successful season. Basically, EVERYTHING that needed to happen actually happened for them, it was an incredible season for a young team like Colorado.
But they let go of a few guys, Anderson was not able to steal very many games for them, and they really didn't improve anywhere. So yeah, the Avs are now living up to their expectations.
