Really? Because the Avs wouldn't trade their 21 year old center for who put up 122 points in his first 2 years in the league, we are homers to the max? Even with Duchene's poor year, he still averages 0.033 less points per game than Kessel. That's 58 points to 56 points over an entire season.

It's like you think Kessel is flawless. Great scorer, but poor defensively, easily intimidated according to the players poll, as well as rumours surrounding bad attitude and poor work ethic. Would I still consider trading Duchene for him? Yes. Would I actually agree to it? Probably not.

edit: Just saw that you said Duchene is barely better than Bozak. You may as well ignore this response. Enjoy having Bozak as a #1 center, and we will enjoy keeping Duchene.
