I think it'd be a pretty big mistake for Florida to trade Kulikov. I wouldn't hesitate to make Duchene available if it was under my control. If Florida was interested, I don't think they'd have to add anything -- Kulikov for Duchene alone would be feasible, at least from the Avalanche side I would think.
Why are Avs fans so willing to part with Duchene I thought he was the next up and comer

And a little further, there ARE some of us outside Florida who recognize Kulikov's skill/potential and Colorado really needs a defender like him to pair with EJ.
Duchene is one of the few assets Avs fans have identified as moveable due to surplus in the area and his down season, but he's also one of the few players most teams would accept in a move like the aforementioned.
