As soon as the Avs started to get competitive, those would have be some of the better games of the season. Not like the old days, but still better than others if they weren't to move out of the conference. Especially if they were to meet in the playoffs again, with the Avs gritty team makeup.
Landeskog most certainly didn't grew up an Avs fan, I don't know where this fallacy started. He was a fan of Peter Forsberg (like any self respecting Swedish hockey fan) and Foppa's popularity in Sweden has close to zero connection to his NHL career. Landeskog's favourite team are the Dead Things if I remember correctly from his pre-draft video.
