Duchene on the canes would add too much risk to their forwards while taking away a great 2 way player while doing the opposite for the Avs.

Plus Duchene simply isn't going anywhere. The kid has proved he can be an absolute star. He's a fan favorite and the best player on the avs. No way they trade him. Especially when his value is higher to Colorado than any other team in a trade.

The same can likely be said for Staal.
I would argue that Landeskog is their best player.

As to the OP, it makes less than zero sense for Carolina to trade Jordan after they JUST acquired him to play with his brother. Rutherford would be blacklisting himself among any high profile free agent for years to come if he made this trade.
