21. Colorado Avalanche

Previous: No. 14

The Avalanche traded away Matt Duchene to the Senators and got a good haul of picks and prospects back, but that won’t help them much this year. They are 4-5-1 in their last 10, including four losses in five games. They started the year off better than anyone expected, but still are surrendering 3.38 goals per game. As Duchene has left, you can expect the scoring to go down a bit for Colorado and for its record to show it.
