Yeah all those guys were playing TOGETHER while Duchene was stuck on the 4th line with a has been NHLer and McFlashlight whoever the hell that is. You need to rewatch that game if you think Sam 'abysmal' Gagner was better than him. It was the first game of Duchene's I had seen in a while but was very encouraged by the way he was playing out there.

I thought he made the most of his 4th line opportunity all the while showing moron coach Shedden who he was because apparently, he had no idea.

It's easy to say the other guys looked better, especially in that first game, none of them had the disadvantage of playing with lesser players the way Duchene did. He played VERY WELL despite not getting any PP can't really pin that on him.
