Besides what I've said, duchene is younger, and more than marginally the more proven Player. If your the leafs gm, you take this the deal without a 2nd thought.

Recently duchene ripped his swede teammates for lack of effort. This IMO was pretty ballsy considering he's on their turf, and sort of unprofessional, but it also shows his desire to win.

We need some guys to help Dion out with leadership, and fill a major roster hole. Duchene seems like he could be that guy.

And yeah, Liles and JVR for Duchene is a no-brainer.
