    The insane part is Nate doesn't look to be at his best and Mikko missed some glorious chances.

    Yah Mack and Miko didn't have a great game. Miko should have at least 5 goals already. This season.

    Some crazy good lines out there right now.

    Fun times to be an Avs fan!

    Seriously hard to beat that top line. Maybe only Boston that has a better one.

    Bruins top line has 36 points in 7 games. Although technically they were all scored in 6 games since they were shut out opening night. They play game 8 tonight. :popcorn:

    Sadly at the expense of you Sens fans the good times may only get better.


    And I'm being sincere here. I wish nothing but losses for the Sens but as a fan who endured a number of bad, bad years for the Avs I certainly know the pain this season could bring the Sens Fans.


    At least so far you guys are doing ok.

    Remember when people were calling MacKinnon a disappointment? Hilarious

    Pretty impressive stuff, fun team to watch. Colorado had the pick before FLA when selecting Landeskog over Huberdeau, MacKinnon over Barkov and Rantanen over Crouse. A little salty about the Rantanen one still, knew he would be a top line talent one day.

    I'd love to see a 96 cup reunion in a couple years. Different outcome though.

    Unreal line so far. Mackinnon is an elite offensive talent.

    So they stacking up their first line and it works for them, ya?
    Not exactly the best recipe for success in a long run and especially playoffs though

    him putting it together now has nothing to do with that

    Coincidentally both Colorado and Boston have really weak 2nd, 3rd and 4th lines.

    Pretty much riding one line to success. Maybe the Oilers can mimic that.

    Apart from Rantanen who was a bit disappointing in the playoffs last year, the Avs have really been playing fantastic ever since the series against the Preds. Took everything Nashville had to beat them

    He consistently improved while the team around him consistently got worse. That's why the 53 points he put up on a historically bad team was so impressive to those of us that suffered through watching it.

    But yes his totals were disappointing if you weren't an avs fan.

    Que? Our 2nd line is our biggest question mark moving forward, but the Avs third line has been great last year & this year...and I really like our options on the 4th line this year as Kamenev is really getting comfortable in the NHL, anchoring that line.
