I've really wanted to see Landeskog - Duchene - Parenteau ever since we acquired PAP.
If not with Landy then with Downie but I think that Downie and PAP there would be too much pressure on Duchene to be the goal scorer when he's more of a balanced player than a sniper. The LAST thing I want to see is another soft combo like PAP-Duchene-Hejduk.
I think its not just about his wingers though, but part of his struggles were because of the change in system and loss of puck movement from the backend last year.
I am confident that he will be fine and will be a great player though, if not this year then soon after.
I wouldn't doubt Duchene's heart - he plays with enough emotion that he will be fine in the playoffs once the Avs start regularly making it there.
