Colorado had terrible depth in '01, which eventually led to their demise. Their line-up for game 7 against New Jersey was:

Tanguay - Sakic - Hejduk
Nieminen - Drury - Hinote
Podein - Yelle - Messier
Reid - Reinprecht - Dingman

Bourque - Foote
Skoula - Blake
De Vries - Klemm


Even without Forsberg, they were loaded up front with Sakic, Drury, Hejduk, and Tanguay. The checking line was really good, but was dismantled only a season later. The only guys who averaged more than 15 minutes of ice time per game in the playoffs are the bolded above, along with Forsberg, Klemm, and Messier.

Like wise, Colorado only got post-season scoring from the bolded above, save for Ville Nieminen's four goal effort. It wasn't surprising that offense was difficult to come by in the following season.
