So Flash is a pretty special talent? PAP and Flash are pretty much at the same level of 'talent.' PAP is a better playmaker, Flash has a slightly better shot, both aren't great defensively and neither are real strong skaters.

Semin is a special talent, and would easily be the most talented winger the Avs have. He is also a bit of a headcase, but at the right price you deal with that for the 40 goal potential he brings. Semin probably wouldn't do as well with Duchene as he would with Stastny in my mind. Semin has some of the same issue that Duchene does with not using his linemates real well, that doesn't mean it wouldn't work or I wouldn't try it, but that there is potential for those two to really not fit well together.
