Our All-Time Top 50 Colorado Avalanche have been revised to reflect the last two seasons

Not in Hall of Fame

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity.  As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2021-22 revision of our top 50 Colorado Avalanche.

As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following: 

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2.  Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL. 

3.  Playoff accomplishments.

4.  Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Please note, that this is our first revision in in the last two years, and it has generated one new entry, and four elevations.

As always, we present our top five immediately, although there are no changes from our last list:

1. Joe Sakic

2. Peter Forsberg

3. Michel Goulet

4. Peter Stastny

5. Patrick Roy

You can find the entire list here.

Center, Nathan MacKinnon, who earned his second Second Team All-Star in 2020, climbed to #8 from #11.

2012 Calder Trophy winning forward, Gabriel Landeskog, moved up four spots to #14.

Defenseman, Erik Johnson, moved up one spot to #25.

Mikko Rantanen, climbs from #41 to #27.  The Right Wing led the NHL in Plus/Minus last year and was also a Second Team All-Star.

The lone new entry is Cale Makar, who is at #50 with only two NHL seasons logged.  He was the runner-up for the Norris last year.

We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
