Ugh, the skill has never been an issue. Duchenes skill levels are off the charts. He showed alot in his rookie season. His issue has been consistency as it is with most highly skilled young forwards and perhaps one could question his work ethic for seasons past. I dont think many people here ever questioned his elite skill level. I would actually put Matt in the top 5 all time in terms of pure puck skills
