There's been alot to like about the Avalanche's 2010-2011 season.
They've gotten some outstanding performances from individual players, they lead the Western Conference in goals scored, and are tied with the Vancouver Canucks for the Northwest Division lead, despite rampant injuries throughout the roster.
However, there are cons as well. The defense has been spotty, some of the Avalanche's higher paid players have played so poorly they've been healthy scratches, and—though they've battled through it well—for the fourth straight year the Avs are one of the most injury prone teams in the NHL.
Let's look through the roster to see who's been pulling their weight and who's pulling the team down.
