The guy is good dont get me wrong. But Gardiner + 1st is more than ballpark for Duchene. If your looking for more than that anywhere else in the league your sadly mistaken.
Not really. Duchene is a 21 year old who was a PPG player at the all star game two years ago, soon after that injuries and trades caused the avs to fall apart and then last year Duchene got hurt. With dutchy healthy again and the avs having real depth for once, there's no reason not to expect him to get back to where he already was, which considering his age and position makes him just as valuable as Kessel, and more valuable to the avs.
