Leafs get a solid 2-way C for Kessel and Lupul meanwhile the Avs receive a good offensive supporter for EJ on the back-end along with a potential NHL Center in Colborne and a top 6 tweener.

I think Statsny would be a much better fit for our club with his style of game and play-making ability than Duchene, a high risk offensive C with limited defensive awareness.
A lot for the Leafs to give up in terms of roster players. Usually a deal for a player like Statsny includes some sort of roster player but mostly futures. Colborne is redundant when acquiring Statsny, so I guess in that case it's not bad. Depends on how much the Leafs value Gardiner.
