Colorado block 6

The Avs went with a youthful roster for block 6 and decide to sit all players that were involved in trade deadline deals. With Martin St Louis, Symeon Varlamov, Mike Cammelerri, Fedor Tyutin, Francois Beauchemin, Jan Hejda and Braydon Coburn all out of the lineup, management inserted prospects Brock Nelson, Sami Vatanen, and Matt Donovan, while also dressing previous healthy scratches Ales Hemsky and Karl Alzner.

The result was an astounding 5-0 block. Ryan Johansen led the charge by scoring 7 goals and adding 2 assists over the home stand, while the secondary scoring was spread throughout the lineup. Tuukka Rask held opponents to a mere 8 goals over 5 games. Avs coaches and management were utterly surprised with the results and look forward adding the likes of Pekka Rinne, Anders Lee and Frans Nielsen to the lineup for the next two blocks. Management is also excited about adding many more young players to this rebuilding franchise, as the Avs will now have 11 rookie draft picks in the upcoming draft. The Avs have acquired several picks through deadline deals and have the following picks at the 2015 draft. The franchise, although the path may take time and patience, continues to build a team that will hopefully be a top contender for years.
