Click here for the current Colorado Avalanche Schedule
Can Patrick Roy, the greatest goaltender in NHL history, coach at the highest level? That is the real question facing the Colorado Avalanche. The great Wayne Gretzky was an underwhelming coach, but he didn’t have the junior hockey experience that Roy has. Oddsmakers are not that optimistic — as of August 15 they sit at 40/1 to win the Stanley Cup at Bovada, which is closer to the back of the pack than the front. Check below for the latest updates to those odds, though we shouldn’t see much movement here. The team will be very young, but they have done two huge things for their franchise this offseason — drafted Nathan MacKinnon, a potentially explosive scorer, with the top pick in the draft, and locked up captain Gabriel Landeskog for the long term. The goal for this team this year is simple — improve from the frustration of last year, and start the long climb towards respectability that will come if MacKinnon and the rest grow into their potential.
