Avs_19 - while it may seem that some of us have an overly negative point of view of his play recently, I think with Duchene its not so much the fact that he's struggled of late as young player, but moreso the way in which he's struggled. What troubles me is seeing a player of his caliber look lost out on the ice, out of position on the backcheck and predictable/easily contained on the attack due to a poor sense of how to use his teammates. Similarly its troubling to see a young player fail to improve on his particular weaknesses over the course of 3 seasons.

I still have high hopes for the kid and really want him to put it all together, but I do think there's some cause for concern until proven otherwise.
shhhh... we're not allowed to criticize him.
