The season ended much too early for Colorado Avalanche fans, despite the fact that the team overachieved for much of the season. Frankly, not many analysts predicted that the Avs would get past the Calgary Flames in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but not only did they do that, but they ended up pushing the San Jose Sharks to Game 7 in round two.

In business parlance, things are trending upward for the Avs. And one sign of a team on the rise is a tight that is tight with one another. Case in point, this hilarious exchange between Avs superstar Nathan MacKinnon and hulking blue liner Nikita Zadorov.
