I'd do that. I would try to get Colo to add a #3 rd pick though. Swap #5, Bernier, Teubert for Smyth and #3 overall. Draft Duchene.

Smyth is still only 32 and his contract is 6.5 this coming yr, 5.5 and 4.5 the last 2 years.

Frolov Kopitar Brown
Smyth Duchene Williams

I have a feeling Duchene will end up being better than Tavares. He's a better skater, works harder and has comparable skill. He could step right in between 2 vets like Smyth and Williams. I still have high hopes for Bernier, but not so much for Teubert.
