Also: Hall has out produced Duchene significantly over the past 3 years, so why take a C and force them to play out of position while not taking a more productive player that actually is a LW?

Very surprised about St Louis and Giroux both being left off.
Duchene plays on a surprise upstart team and had a better showing at the world championships.

If the Avalanche were again at the bottom of the league and the Oilers were fighting for a playoff spot it would likely be the other way around.
