It’s somewhat hard to believe the Avs are in a rebuild.  Their breakout speed and transition game can look lethal at times, although they have their woes defensively.  They came out on New Year’s Eve and dominated a pretty good Islanders team, showing they can still compete unlike last year’s team.  Now, Nathan MacKinnon is back and they have a superstar in the wings in Cale Makar.
