Makes you think who the Avs could have ended up with. Interestingly enough Del Zotto was taken 20th overall, one spot after where the Avs could have drafted.
Not only that, but the condition on the trade was that if the Avs hadn't made the playoffs or something like that, the Avs would've forfeited their 1st rounder the following season. So yeah, there would've been a possibility that Matt Duchene would've been in Columbus. Yet another reason why Giguere was deservedly fired.
