This thread made me stupider. Seriously. For the love of GOD, lock 'er up before more people see this.

On the main board, the proposal calls for Vanek, Sekera and Adam for Duchene. And Avs fans are overwhelmingly turning it down.

kk?

Holy overpayment for Duchene...Absolutely ridiculous. I love when people take trades seriously from the trade forum. Quite hilarious! Fans over value there players so much its not even funny. Posters are not NHL GMS. If you would of posted Zach Kassian for Cody Hodgson last year 100% of Canucks fans would of laughed hilariously at you.

Okay I was wrong it would definitely be Vanek+ for Duchene (however; I still believe Vanek is a better player right now)

Which was always my point. I'd rather have Vanek+ on THIS roster. If it could be done for just Vanek I'd pack his bags and drive him to the airport.

Yeahhhhh no way Colorado does this. The writer of that article is actually suggesting trading a franchise-potential center for a top-line winger??

As I said in the other thread, I don't see the Avs moving Duchene for any return at this point. Not until they know where he stands in comparison to Statsny and ROR.

Hopefully Duchene makes the Avs brass miserable ala CoHo so he lands here.

Its a joke really. I've seen how they value their "big 3" centers and seem to think all of them are worth way more than fair value. I bet they wouldn't even trade Statsny straight up for Vanek.

No, Duchene is obviously better.He scored an amazing 28 points in 58 games getting 16:17 in ice-time per game, a lot more productive then Vaneks 61 points in 78 games getting 16:56 ice-time per game.Duchene scored at a 39.5 point pace last season yet he is a "surefire" elite player

Some of them seem to think that they can trade Statsny straight up for Nash. =/

25 pts in 39 games before tearing up his knee... not great, but not as bad as the 3 pts in the final 19 games before going on IR again would indicate

and lets completely forget about those 2 previous seasons as a teenager, in which he matched vanek's production as a seasoned veteran for 2 straight years

funny how so many of the "Roy was recovering from injury, he's still a 60 pt player" crowd don't seem to apply the same logic to Duchene

Depends on who you ask....=/

I think Duchene is going to be very good when he finishes recovering. He has the potential to be that good. Which is why he will not be traded unless Statsny and OReilly both prove to be better then him....and even then he will probably get quite a bit.

I'm sorry for posting on your guys' forum but seriously when did any of us Avs fans say this?

The consensus on our board was that it was take at minimum Stastny + 1 of Barrie/Elliott plus a pick for Nash.

I'd post all the pictures of Duchene wearing all Avs gear as a kid...but it's really not worth the time.

He's a lifer there....case closed.

Pretty much. He loves where he is. If we traded for him he'd be miserable here for at least the first year.

That was when he was a kid.

He's a pro athlete now.

Tim Kennedy grew up a Sabres fan after all.
