Plus although Kessel's a great goal scorer, Duchene playing center, having a solid two way game when he's not trying to be Foppa, and being a dangerous goal scorer himself, makes me prefer the youngin who's loved the Avs since he was a little kid and still has the potential to reach a level of play that Kessel just can't.
Cant argue that. Duchene is a special player that has a more complete skill set than kessel. And it would be nice to see him reach his full potential, a good ontario boy that plays great hockey, which is why i would love to see him in the Blue and White. Wouldnt trade kessel for him though, the whole point of aquiring him would be to have duchene play with kessel.
