im not making excuses... duchene was injured, and he is going to have to prove himself all over again next year.

the only reason we are talking injuries is because of the idiocy of looking at last year, and using it as the entire basis of comparison for vanek/duchene

the fact is :
09-10
duchene and vanek had nearly identical performance. duchene was 18/19 and vanek was 25/26

10-11
duchene and vanek had nearly identical performance. duchene was 19/20 and vanek was 26/27

11-12
duchene had a huge set back in performance and injury was part of it
vanek had a smaller set back in performance and injury was part of it

we went off on this injury tangent because homer sabres fan thinks that 11-12 is the only season that matters in this analysis... which is borderline retarded when talking about a 21 yr old #2 overall pick who has shown nothing but living up to his draft hype. at 21, vanek wasn't even in the NHL.

no one but homer sabres fans would take vanek over duchene when taking age, contract, skill into consideration. no one. go post it on the main board and we can all have a good laugh
