Wait when did the Avs need wingers? They added McGinn, Downie and Landeskog last season alone. Then went out and picked up PA in July. Throw in Jones and a possible Hejduk/Olver and the Avs are strong on the wings.
Duchene is the most risky of the centers because his potential is so HIGH. So his perceived value would be high. Even is he turns into an above average player, he's still a damn good second line forward (who can be a center or winger).
Decent hands? Hockey IQ just isn't there? Did it run off and join with Kane or were you referring to Kane? I like Kane as a player but I believe you are over selling one while under selling the other. Duchene has more goals and points in his career and a chunk of that was with Svatos, Tucker, Olver and an aging Hejduk.
