Duchene doesn't seem like the kind of guy who be upset over something like this. He quickly signed his contract and he knows if he plays like he's capable of, he'll be the highest paid player on the team in 1.5 years.
No I disagree completely. Duchene's first two being better, along with the injuries last year, and being the 3rd overall pick, and having a higher ceiling make it a wash.
