Almost all of the new Avalanche has been on the same period of time, (KAPP Factory turned into Avalanche).

Wait, now that I think about it, wasn't Jason Lock on Avalanche before Kapp became Avalanche?

Ed Poorman is owner and also played on the original Avalanche team. He is also owner of Warped Sportz.

After the original team broke up, Ed brought in some of the players from Warped Kids straight from their World Cup win. Those players were Aaron Morris, Tony Perez, Jingle, and Chris Grimsley. He still had three of the original players who were himself, Shawn Ellis, and Weasel. He also brought in Glen Forrester to coach and play. (Glen was Warped Kids coach)
The mix didn't work well and the team ended in 7th place.

When the Kapp team was brought in, Aaron and Tony had to prove themselves for a spot on the new team and both made it. Aaron eventually left due to school schedules but may be back this year.

So, to answer your question, the owner, Ed Poorman has obviously been with the team the longest.
Tony Perez is next and starting his 3rd year on Avalanche.
Tony is also the VP of System X and instrumental in the new quarter million dollar sponsorship.

The Kapp and non Kapp players have blended into a really great Avalanche team with lots of potential. They're like a family and when anything happens to one of them it happens to all. They have some very large shoes to fill with a name like Avalanche on their jerseys. If it can be done at all, these are the guys that can do it.

Sorry i didn't make that very clear. After the 2003 season ended with Avalanche in 7th place, Ed was looking for a way to bring his team up to par again. Aaron, having been a close friend with one of the guys that played for Kapp, planted the idea of bringing them over to Avalanche. Ed went for the idea and the rest is history.

So, the guys played for Kapp as amatuers in 2003 and moved to pro with Avalanche in 2004.

Kapp and Avalanche have no connection to each other.
Avalanche's second team name is Function.

As far as what happened to the Warped kids I mentioned,
Tony and Aaron went to Avalanche.
Jingle plays on Sedition and coaches Stoned Assasins.
Chris Grimsley realized his dream and opened a paintball store, 'All City Paintball' in Chula Vista, and also coaches Stoned Assasins.

Poorman didn't join until 1994.

Lasoya was with Easy before Poorman
