List Rules Vote up the best hockey players based on their careers with the Colorado Avalanche.

When the Colorado Avalanche joined the NHL in 1995, they did it in a big way. After moving from Quebec, where they were the Nordiques, they made the play-offs an insane nine times in ten years, and turned two of those playoff seasons into Stanley Cup wins. Two Stanley Cups is impressive on its own, but a 90% playoff showing is unheard of. The Avalanche were in fact the first ever team to win the Stanley Cup after a relocation (before 95 they were the Quebec Nordiques).

To commemorate this impressive team, below are the greatest Colorado Avalanche players of all time. Vote up the best of the best and see where your favorites rank!
