No. 30: Colorado Avalanche

Previous: No. 30

Record: 13-30-2 (28 points)

The Avs may well be locked into this spot for the rest of the regular season, unless the next team in these rankings loses about 14 straight games. Colorado just isn’t doing anything right, going 1-8-1 in its last 10 games. A major selloff should be coming, with fan favorite Cody McLeod the first piece to hit the road. Who’s next? Jarome Iginla? Semyon Varlamov? Gabriel Landeskog?
