Heartbreaking thought of the day for Avalanche fans: they could have taken Claude Giroux in the 2006 NHL draft. He was available at the No. 18 pick when Colorado stepped to the podium. The Avs chose Chris Stewart instead. Not a horrible pick by any means, but how good would Giroux look good in an Avs swearter - or the 21 other NHL teams that passed on him before Philly took him at No. 22?
