The whole reason people have made losing Jay McClement an issue is Matt Duchene's inability to handle big minutes last season. If Duchene steps up, then playing Paul Stastny and Ryan O'Reilly in more defensive situations makes all the sense in the world because of how good they are in their own zone.
If Duchene doesn't step up, then they need to trade him. Because if he plays like he did last year, a 1-2-3 punch of O'Reill-Stastny-Stoll is way better than Colorado's current trio. Especially if we see the horrid Mueller-Duchene-Hejduk line re-united...yuk.
