Trouble for the NW
Ryan Smyth, Paul Stastny, and Joe Sakic have resumed skating with the Colorado Avalanche. The Avalanche have been doing fine without the three, but having them back in the lineup will add to their potent offensive attack which is bad news for the rest of the Northwest division.
Colorado is currently 2nd in the Northwest and 6th overall in the Western Conference. They are 5th in terms of scoring in the West.
