Patrik Nemeth knows he wasn't always your favorite player last season, Avs fan. Hey, he wasn't always his biggest fan either.

"Then you're just sitting there, panicking. For me, there was a period of time where this happened, like the middle of the season, (some) games where I was really bad at that. Making that first pass better is something I really want to improve and have worked hard on."
