The Avs will not keep up this pace, as everyone seems to realize, including Avs fans. Unsustainable goaltending. But they won't crash and burn as spectacularly as the Wild did before, due to the underlying stats being more solid. Most likely they'll be 3rd or 4th in their division come playoff time.
Only thing I disagree with is your prediction. I think that the Avs will finish ahead of one of the Blackhawks/Blues, and will definitely finish ahead of Minnesota, Dallas, Winnipeg, and Nashville. I have them 2nd in the division come playoff time, barring any significant injuries
