the Avalanche had a string of 7 years where, aside from one first round exit, did not finish worse than making the Conference Finals.
The Stars definitely deserve a lot of credit for stopping the Avalanche from winning probably at least another cup, and if not for running into the Red Wings and Devils, maybe add another one or two during that 3 year span. But as a team, that seems like a really short peak. I don't know, I could go either way with adding them to the top teams of the DPE.
That's just absolutely insane to look back on now.
