Yeah, care to elaborate here? They just destroyed a team thought to be in the top-3 in the west...

I'm curious, aside from if you are just trolling, to know why you think that?

Did you see any pre-season games this year? Because I didn't... If a team comes out slow and then responds with the utter destruction of the same team, I'm good with it. But calling them the most overrated team in the US after two games? Come on now.

That's some pretty nice justification you have there. O wait...

Btw not 1 of their top 6 forwards and top 4 defensemen has played more than 1 full 82 game season within the last 4 years. The most injury prone and brittle team in the league. They roll top 6 bottom 6 which doesn't help with their best forwards are injured.

They've been called a contender for 3 years and barely have a top 6. Now they have Saad which helps assuming he rebounds.

Maybe slightly, when people talk like it would be a disappointment if they don't win the cup, but I'd have to say, they are probably the best team in the nhl (regular season at least, the presidents trophy winner rarely wins the cup, and I would be surprised if the avs don't win the presidents trophy).

So they're overrated because they've dealt with injuries a lot? Are you choosing to ignore the fact that they made it to within a goal of the western conference finals for the past two years despite the injuries?

I was surprised when some media put the Avs among the top contenders at the beginning of last year. I just didn't see it that way, yet. But to be honest, they've lived up to expectations. So it's hard to claim they're the most overrated.

I don’t think they’re gonna roll over everyone, but they’re still probably the best team in the West and have an excellent collection of players. I was really skeptical coming into last season but they made me shut up really quick lol

I honestly like Colorado and their chances in the next few years, but the circlejerk around them here kind of makes me want to see them crash and burn.

Everyone knows that and nobody is boosting them for that reason. They were overrated, but I don't think anyone is overrating them this year.

I see a lot of people pegging them as the cup champs this year.

pump the breaks there bud. if you think they were contenders for the past 3 years you're a goof. Last year i'd say they were for sure, the two prior they barely made the playoffs 8th seed both years. Your comments just sound sour now trying to bash a team that has done a rebuild pretty well and is 'now' a top contender
