Duchene is more of play-maker than people give him credit for IMO. what was it? 27 goals 40 assists in his second season?

I do think his last season made people question him using his linemates and his defensive responsibility, but those skills were there in his first two seasons and his all around game was something he was known for when drafted.

Hes brought back his playmaking ability, and defensive responsibility as far as I'm concerned. Not exactly 'found' it if you know what I mean. He has improved in these areas but him being billed as a 'sniper' by people came from the way he played last season and not much else.
