For the Duchene comparison, Hall is less than a year younger than him. Hall has a better offensive game but Duchene has a better all-around game.
TC has some of the finest hockey minds in the game. Doesn't it raise a few flags that they picked Duchene, Carter, and Nash over him?
TBH what raises flags for me is that Col seems to be doing a better job of developing their players than the Oilers have since the time when Sather was the coach.
If RNH, Gagner, Eberle, Hall and Yak were developing at the same rate as the Avs players were we'd be in a playoff spot right now.
