The Colorado Avalanche were good but the Dallas Stars were better

The Colorado Avalanche are elite. With Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog, and Cale Makar there, they have a few future Hall of Fame players leading the way.

They don't have captain Gabriel Landeskog anymore though and you heard about Val Nichuskin already. That is a major hit to the depth that they are supposed to have. They also never truly recovered from the loss of Nazem Kadri to the Calgary Flames.

Guys like Artturi Lehkonen, Zach Parise, Devon Toews, and Casey Mittelstadt are all great as well but they weren't able to match the depth that Dallas has right now.

We know about their veterans like Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Ryan Suter, Matt Duchene, and Joe Pavelski who have all been star players in the NHL before. They became even more dangerous when they added younger stars like Roope Hintz, Jason Robertson, Miro Heiskanen, and Jake Oettinger.

The even crazier part is that they added even younger stars with guys like Wyatt Johnston and Logan Stankoven who contribute at a high level. This Dallas team is incredible. The Colorado Avalanche won't be winning the Stanley Cup because they couldn't beat that wagon from the south.
