Makes no sense for the Avalanche to keep all three centers, long-term, when they clearly need a lot of help on the back end.

Whether or not Duchene for Franson is enough for the Leafs to flip is up for discussion, however. (most would probably think not).

But I seriously doubt the Avalanche go the offer-sheet route. They've never done that before in franchise history, IIRC.
Franson for Duchene would be an interesting proposal. Obviously, Franson would have to be locked up on a good contract, and the Leafs might have to add something to sweeten the deal.
