Cody McLeod-Paul Stastny-Milan Hejduk: Not at all what the Avalanche expected, but they’re doing their best as the team awaits the return of injured top-six forwards Joe Sakic and Ryan Smyth. The baptism under fire should give the younger players confidence to continue to contribute when the big stars return so, in a way, the injuries can be a good thing for Colorado.
WHAT!?! has this even been a line for Colorado this season? I'm sure with Q's constant juggling these three forwards have appeared on the ice at the same time at some point together, but I would hardly call it the top line. Now throw in the fact that this is a weekly column, and Stastny has been out for 2-3 weeks now and this makes even less sense. The best line has unquestionably been: Svatos-Arnason-Wolski. But everyone knew that McKeon not withstanding.
