It’s time to start panicking about the Avalanche

That’s it; it’s time to throw in the towel and hit the abort button on the 2014-15 season for the Colorado Avalanche. Forget contending for the division or worrying about playoff seeding; it’s time to start pondering how high of a draft pick the Avs can land. Lets put a fork in this one because it’s done. All right, that might be an overreaction (and a lot of idioms), but...
