More about Colorado Avalanche tickets
 
Though the Avalanche have only been in Denver since 1995 their history as a franchise goes back to the early 1970s. Originally known as the Quebec Nordiques, the team's early roots were in the NHL's rival league - the WHA. The Nordiques were one of only a handful of teams that were around in the WHA's first season, and still existed by the time that league merged with the NHL prior to the 1979-80 season. During that time the Nordiques won the Avco World Cup - one of only four different teams to do so.

When the WHA merged with the NHL the Nordiques were one of four teams (the other three being the Hartford Whalers, Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets) to make the transition. In the first half of the 80s the franchise was relatively strong, led by stars like Peter Stastny, Anton Stastny and Michel Goulet. However, in the latter part of the decade they went rapidly downhill and for years were one of the worst teams in the league. Those terrible years would ultimately be ground zero for the success of the Avalanche in the years to come. They drafted players like Joe Sakic, Mats Sundin, Owen Nolan and Eric Lindros. When Lindros refused to play for the Nordiques a deal was made to send The Big E to the Philadelphia Flyers. The deal was a monumental one for the franchise, bringing in players and picks - one of which would become future superstar Peter Forsberg.

Though the Nordiques had a stable of quality young talent that would ultimately turn the franchise around, behind the scenes the future wasn't so rosy. Being in the smallest market in the league was having a huge impact on the Nordique's bottom line. Coupled with the low Canadian dollar, and the rising salaries of star players (paid in U.S. dollars) the writing was on the wall. The Nordiques franchise was going to have to move to remain viable going forward. After a bailout plan fell through, owner Marcel Aubut was forced to sell the club to COMSAT Entertainment Group in Denver.

The Nordiques Become the Colorado Avalanche

The start of the 1995-96 season saw the club take to the ice in Denver for the first time. The Nordiques name went by the wayside with the change in location. Henceforth the franchise was known by the moniker The Avalanche. As it turned out the timing of the move couldn't have been better for fans in Denver, who hadn't enjoyed NHL hockey since the Colorado Rockies had become the New Jersey Devils in the early 1980's. On the flip side it couldn't have been worse for Nordiques fans.

That season the Avalanche acquired superstar netminder Patrick Roy from the Montreal Canadiens. Roy, certainly the greatest goalie to ever pull on a Colorado Avalanche jersey, joined an already powerful squad that featured Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Valeri Kamensky, Sandis Ozolinsh and Adam Foote. The Avs rolled through the rest of the regular season, finishing with 104 points, good enough for second in the Western Conference.

Watching the Avs shine so soon after departing Quebec City must have been a dagger through the heart for Nordiques fans, but the injury was compounded when the Avalanche dispatched the Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings, before sweeping the Florida Panthers in the finals to capture the franchise's first Stanley Cup.

The Avalanche Win the 2001 Stanley Cup

Over the next few seasons the Avalanche would continue to be one of the most dominant teams in the league. Players like Rob Blake, Theoren Fleury and Ray Bourque all arrived, hoping to help the Avs win another Stanley Cup. Every year the Avs threatened, but ultimately ran into a roadblock in the form of the Detroit Red Wings, Dallas Stars or New Jersey Devils. After multiple disappointments the planets finally aligned for the Avs in the 2000-01 season.

In addition to star veterans like Sakic, Forsberg, Blake, Bourque and Roy the Avs also had a trio of exciting young players in Milan Hejduk, Alex Tanguay and Chris Drury. Together this powerful squad put together a 52-16-10-4 season, good enough for 118 points and the President's Trophy. However, first place in the regular season was just a warm-up.

The Avs cruised through the first round, sweeping division rivals, the Vancouver Canucks. The second round would give them a scare, in more ways than one. They blew a 3-1 series lead against the Los Angeles Kings, and were forced to a game seven at home before finally getting the fourth victory they needed to advance. Though they won, the victory came at an enormous cost. Peter Forsberg underwent surgery following the game 7 victory to have his ruptured spleen removed. It was a devastating injury, and many speculated that the loss of the Swedish superstar might spell curtains for the Avs Stanley Cup chances.

However, rather than allow the misfortune to derail their quest, the remaining Avs players drew upon their vast experience and skill to rally. In the semi-finals they easily handled the St. Louis Blues, sending them packing with a 4-1 series victory. The victory set up a match-up against the New Jersey Devils, the defending Stanley Cup champions.

A major subplot to the Stanley Cup Final match-up was the duel in goal. Patrick Roy, widely heralded as the greatest goalie of his time, went head to head against Martin Brodeur, Roy's heir apparent, and a two time Stanley Cup winner.

The series was a tight, bitterly contested affair, and the absence of Forsberg in an Avalanche jersey was keenly felt. Predictably, the series went the full seven games, and the microscope was on Roy and Brodeur in the final game at the Pepsi Center.

Roy, like he had so many times during his incredible career, rose to the challenge. With the Stanley Cup on the line Roy outdueled his protege, helping the Avs to a 3-1 victory and a Stanley Cup, earning himself a record third Conn Smythe Trophy in the process. In one of the most emotional moments in franchise history, Joe Sakic immediately handed grizzled defenseman Ray Bourque the Stanley Cup. Tears shone in his eyes as Bourque hefted the prize that had been denied him for more than two decades.

Today's Colorado Avalanche

Over the years the Avs suffered through the retirement of stars like Patrick Roy, Ray Bourque and Joe Sakic and the departure of Alex Tanguary, Chris Drury and Peter Forsberg. With the nucleus of that powerful team gone, the Avs have slipped from a team that was a perennial cup contender to one that is hopeful to make the playoffs. However, though the glory years might be behind them, there is plenty of reason to hope for Avalanche fans.

Young stars like Paul Stastny, Peter Mueller, Cody McLeod and Ryan O'Reilly will all pull on Colorado Avalanche jerseys this year. Between the pipes Patrick Roy may be just a distant memory, but Craig Anderson, once a back-up for the Florida Panthers has come out of nowhere to become one of the league's most dominant netminders. Though they can't be called a contender yet, there is no reason to doubt that this group of players, should Avs management be able to keep them together, can once again be a force in the NHL.
