I went with liles. Bourque wasn't here long enough and blake ruined Mueller's life. Also, i think Stastny and Duchene deserve to be added before Landy, even if he is our newest captain

First one that is hard.

I went with Kamensky. Probably not the most important or best (Bourque is by far the one on the list that played best as an Avs player) but because I have a very soft spot for that elegant Russian style of hockey.

I honestly have no clue what I shoul do with Bourque. He definitely helped us win a Stanley Cup, but he will always be known as a Bruin. Also I don't want to break Chewey's heart and take him off the list.

Really hard one. Ultimately I went with Liles. This put it over the edge for me:



Stupid reason? Maybe. But Liles had tons of personality.

Been an absolute fan of Shjon's since I read this on ESPN.
Life of Podes

If you are new to this segment, I strongly urge you to click on my archives and find all of last year's installments. Shjon Podein is currently an unsigned unrestricted free agent, working out and hoping for another chance to raise the Stanley Cup. This summer in Chicago, while having a couple of late-night beverages, Podes eyes grew moist talking about what the quest and ultimate clutching of Lord Stanley's Cup meant to him. It was a moment I'll never forget. How perfect is Podes for the Avs' third or fourth line? Unrelenting, experienced and popular. While we wait for Podes to return to NHL ice, we enjoy his behind-the-scenes look of life on the road:

Shjon Podein
Available: Third- or fourth-line winger.
So, I'm in my rookie year in Edmonton and it's my birthday. We had just come home from one of our infamous 15-20 day road trips and my family is there to celebrate. So, the family and I go out to have some dinner and drinks. We're just relaxing when one of my brothers gives me a four-foot high, inflatable tyrannosaurus rex for a birthday present. My other brother gives me a sombrero.

We get back to the hotel and get mom back in her room. As we're leaving mom's room, my brothers jump me and rip my suit off in the hotel hallway, leaving me with just my boxers, a sombrero and my 4 foot high inflatable tyrannosaurus rex.

So I'm wandering the hallways of the hotel trying to find where my room is. We'd been on the road for 15-20 days, it's late, and I can't remember my room number. I stick my room key in a number of doors, hoping to find the right one. All of a sudden, I look up and there is one of Canada's finest security guards.

I go, "Hey, what's going on!"

The security guard says, 'We've had a complaint that some guy is walking down the hall in his boxers, wearing a sombrero, with a bottle of Bud in one hand and an inflatable dinosaur in the other, making too much noise.'

I looked at him and said, "You've got the WRONG GUY, brotha."
After getting to know more about him more through his charity work and all-around attitude, the guy is simply a solid dude. Been at the top of my list of favorite players since. Again, he's not the best player but is damn near the most funny, heartwarming and giving person you could meet. His story about having a car they had to drive in reverse to practice during his days in the AHL in Novia Scotia is awesome!

Drury, Lemieux or Kamensky. Each one was vital for the Avalanche's success from 95-02

Staz and Duchene really need to be added if Landy is on there.

Blake for me, i get that he's hated but he had the highest peak as an AV D-man. Plus when you're talking about old stacked teams you always say Foote and Blake on D.

Lemieux.

Helped to bring us our first Stanley Cup and created one of the best rivalries in sports.

Add Anderson and Elliot. Without those 2 studs we wouldn't have Landeskog.
