22. Colorado Avalanche
Previous: No. 25
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.
