Not only did he do good things, but he represents value out of the Jeff Carter debacle.
Something around Nash for Duchene makes sense for CBJ, but not adding to Nash to get it done. That said, if I'm the Avs I'd rather keep Duchene, much as the idea of adding a top-flight scoring wing is appealing.
Good level headed post.
As much as I would like to see Nash in Colorado I can't see a deal that would make sense for Avs and Jackets. Avs can't afford to move Stastny before they know what future holds for O'Reilly and Duchene, they can't afford to move Duchene before they now what he's trully capable of, if his head cathes up with his feet and hands he could be a perennial 80+ points two way center and that is something that you don't trade away easily. O'Reilly is apsolutely of the table because of his two-way play, leadership, work ethic and his percived value for the teams around the league, or in other words he's worth more to Colorado than to other teams.
The only deal that makes sense for Colorado is a deal based around one of their wingers already on the team that could play a top 6 role(with the exception of Landeskog) and a slew of picks and top end prospects and I don't see why Columbus would accept that kind of an offer.
