Duchene is not a physical player -- if he isn't scoring -- and he isn't, he's not that effective. As his -11 and 1 goal in the SEL suggest.

Jake Gardiner put up more points than Duchene last year.

Reilly is untouchable from the Leafs point of view, imo, since he's the best prospect they have had in years.
Just so you know he was injured almost all of last year.

Some of the Leafs fan in here only wants to focus on what happened last year.

He put up 55 points his rookie year, and 67 the next. There's no reason to believe he can't match, and some day exceed those numbers when healthy.

Oh and he's a +6 in the SEL, not -11.
