Uh yeah... you're brilliant... except in the way you're not. Y'know, like stupidity. Actually, my best friend is an Avalanche fan and I had my demons exercised a while back. You remember March 26th 1997, right? Or, the Western Conference Finales, game seven, 2002, right? When the Wings won both games, the first one 6-5, in overtime, where Darren McCarty whooped on your boy. The second was a classic game. You know, 7-0. That was enroute to another Stanley Cup. Y'know, the thing you're supposed to win. Not the highest payroll award. that and your record will get you the first pick from here til eternity. And, as usual, you're wide left.
