In a vacuum Kessel and Duchene might be close on value. But when you add the situation Duchene is in compared to Kessel, his value is a lot more then Kessel, and anyone else on the Leafs roster.
Agreed. I think leafs should work a deal around Statsny rather that duchene as i feel he is more of a realistic player to pry out of COL. and if its D COL are looking for. Franson/Gunnarson could be center points to build around.
Franson + Conditional 1st (2014) may be a starting point, given the contract Statsny is on.
