Colton Strickler, Justin Michael of DNVR Rams, and Nathan Rudolph of DNVR Avalanche draft their dream rugby sevens team using current and former Colorado Avalanche players. The guys discuss the similarities between hockey and rugby, talk about their different draft strategies, and break down some players that didn’t get drafted in the honorable mentions.
