I'm not sure he's good enough for Canada, since he's basically a top 6 forward or bust and Canada is loaded, but without Duchene the Avs are last place without question.
Ya, I'm in agreement there, I don't think Duchene has much of a shot for a roster spot for Sochi. Good to see him rebound, I'd still prefer O'Reilly over Duchene, but if Matt wants to prove his critics wrong, then answer Team Canada's call come May and a trip to the WHC. He has 6 days from the end of the NHL season to the start of the WHC to get his *** to Europe.
