The Avalanche were a surprise team last season, the lowest paid club to make the playoffs.  They won’t catch anyone by surprise this year, so they are going to have to keep the same level of effort and then some to maintain competitiveness.  Ownership has anted up by spending almost to the cap, so they have no excuses.
