Duchene trade proposal

Word has it that Evander Kane wants out of Winnipeg. Duchene for Kane. Even trade. Jets get a top 2 center they need, and Avs get a 30 goal, top tier winger. great trade for both teams.

Fair value imo. I'd do it as we could use some LW depth.

But I'd only do it if Kane agreed to an extension (obviously).

Probably good value, but with Landeskog emerging as a player similar to Kane and Duchene having more potential (imo), no thanks.

Duchene will be better, I wouldn't do it. If we could get another elite defenseman like Johnson, I would think about it.

Expect for the fact that Duchene has a higher ceiling and not a head case like Kane. Evander is the exact opposite of the character the avs look for in players. He's a bigger ******** than DD and that's saying something. Winnie want Duchene? It will have to be for Bogosian+Schieflie.

I would rather keep Duchene, also doesn't Kane has 6 year 29M deal on the table?

Not denying Kane's talent, but Duchene is a keeper. Unlike Kane with his team, Duchene LOVES the Avalanche & bleeds burgundy and blue.... he wants to stay.

So, while the trade may be fair on paper, I would think the Avs would turn it down.

Why would we trade Duchene? He gave us a discount. He is a keeper.

Terrible trade. I don't care if Kane scored 30 goals last year, he is still no Duchene.

No thanks, I think Duchy's character alone makes him more valuable to our franchise ignoring the notion that I think he is already better.

I'll trade Duchene for Kane any day of the week. I'll even include Barrie and a pick! Patrick Kane that is!

I love Kane but if he wants out of Winnepeg he wouldnt want to come to Colorado, while duchene will probably never ever want to leave

Thats the only breaker if the kid already is trying to call the shots personally destroys their value (unless they win a cup this year ,,,,, Doughty)

Fair value.

I just don't know that I'd do it. Kane's aggressive play doesn't really fit the Avs style of play.

I should say though, I'm still on the fence whether Duchene can be this great center everyone's forecasting. He needs to improve in a lot of areas to be that guy.

Would you do it for Byfuglien and Scheifele?

Hell no... Buffy is on the painful end of being a defensive liability and that is coming from posts from Jets fans and a few games Ive watched.

He was better as a Power-forward ruling the front of the net IMO.

I have to agree with other Avs fans here... Kane is not worth Duchene straight up. Besides what people have already posted about the difference in raw talent and over all ceiling... Duchene is a center and a first line center is worth more than a first line winger any day of the week. Especially when they are at pretty much the same stage in their careers.

Winnipeg would need to add a pick or prospect and I doubt they would do that if only because they are in love with their drafted player. I won't even comment on Kane's character because I think people believe a little to much of what they read in the MSM but I wouldn't make the deal based on other real factors.

Also... Duchene just took a multi-year discount to prove how much he wanted to be part of this team. Which effectively made him #1 as far as the untouchable list goes when it comes to our centers.

It is truly pointless to discuss trades involving him until at the very least next years trade deadline. The Avalanche organization just does not operate that way... and never has.

This. I have a hard time wrapping my head around trading a kid whose only going to get better who has a great attitude and LOVES playing for his favourite team growing up.

not only is Duchene going to be a much better player, but Kane has a reputation of being a ******. (IE waitresses reporting he didnt tip)

Semi-pointless. Target a defenseman if trading Duchene. I like Kane's game better though, so it's fair value.

Duchene to Winnipeg? I'd want Bogosian+ Scheifele or Ladd/Wheeler.

I wouldn't do it. The jets would be at a weaker position if Kane was demanding to leave, while Duchene is happy to be here with his favorite team. I would be demanding more.
