Inside joke? Duchene has 2 more points, Landeskog is ahead by +16. A lot of times boxcar stats can be misleading but Landeskog isn't given sheltered minutes in Colorado.
Between the two of them which one do you think is the more complete player?
I'll pose the question on the Avs board.
First of all, Duchene is a Centerman. Second of all, that he is there and Giroux is not is an unbelievable failure in logic on the part of Hockey Canada. You've chosen to put Landeskog in over a guy who should have never made the team in the first place (and you chose wisely, as Duchene would be the only player that Landeskog would have a hope in hell to be chosen over).
Also, it's about high time that people give up +/- stats as a means of value measurement; they are at bottom flawed, as with almost every other stat that measures things other than goals and assists.
In short, Landeskog would not make Team Canada this year. Stay away from that horrifically potent Avalanche Kool-Aid
