30. Colorado Avalanche

Previous: No. 30

Record: 20-52-3 (43 points)

The Avalanche have had one of the worst seasons in franchise history and now find themselves in the midst of a six-game losing streak. It’s really hard to figure out which direction this team will go in after such a disappointing year. With Matt Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon still young and prospering, it would be a shame to keep such talent cooped up during a rebuild. You can only imagine that Colorado is rather anxious to get this season over.
