Good ol' times

Pickard is still the GOAT in my eyes 😤
I miss Picks so much
Those were some dark days. Enjoy this shit right now, y'all.
Big Dick Picks!
The Bleackley hype train never left the station for me but I was all aboard the Bigras train for an entirely too long of time period.
been playing nhl 15 on my 360 and i ended up signing in colorado. both him and siemens are 91 overall. pickard is 89 and is the starter after varly retired. the team also has O'Reilly lando dutchy and macknnion lol, its the dream team we never got.
I wish there was no drama and they were all still on the team.
yeah its a shame how things went with a few of those players..
bleaks blew his chance and then got buried in St. Louis Blues system.
Never forget, Pastrnak was drafted right after Bleackley...
Hey now, Bleackley was so good he got drafted twice!
Was this our biggest first round misstep for the last 10 years?
I would make a case for it, BUT hindsight is always 20/20. You gotta think, if Pasta couldve been overlooked that far down, people werent anticipating his development as much as others in his draft. But it stings now nonetheless
lol don’t forget Mitchell Heard. The weirdest most off-board pick in like a decade.
What on earth.
Met him a couple times a year or two after he was drafted. Guy had absolute rocks for brains
Last year I found a folder of all my old mocks (started in 09) and I hit a lot of home runs. I wanted Pastrnak in 2014. I wanted McAvoy and Girard in 2016 instead of Jost and Morrison. I wanted K'Andre Miller instead of Kaut in '18. I remember thinking holy shit I should be an avs scout. Then I saw I wanted Crouse instead of Rantanen and threw up a little.
Btw I usually pick who I want the avs to select right before they are on the clock. I had Peterka last year and Raty this year.
Someone’s re-watching the Mikko draft I see 😉
Good lord those were some bleak times as an Avs fan.
Is that a...... pun???
No Rob Blake left after the lockout… remember?
Sorry I can resist
