It simply made no sense. Granted O'Reilly was gone and he thought he could keep the McGinn/Staz/Jones line rolling. But anyone with even 50/50 vision could see Landeskog and Duchy's games didn't match.

Landeskog isn't a rushing player, he cycles, sets up, peppers the net and crashes it or occasionally snipes a shot. He wins battles along the boards, while Duchy uses his open space to be most effective. He's simply geared to play with Stastny or O'Reilly, both of which are more than happy to let Landeskog carry the play and cycle along the boards.
