I'm not sure if I would say yes to this, Duchene just has so much potential, but that 1st could be top 15, we get a good 3rd line center(if we have a season) a partner for EJ, and a good prospect. I'd probably keep Duchene and O'Byrne, but it's close.
That being said, Toronto is not going to trade their captain, decent center, a 14 1st, and a prospect for Duchene.

Duchene could end up being a very good C, but after having a bad season last year, his value isn't exactly at it's peak. It wouldn't necessarily make sense for Colorado to trade him right now. Now having said that, it would make some sense for them to trade off one of their C's, but Statsny has been inconsistent in his career so far as well. If you are going to pay for a #1 C, you need to get someone who has been playing like one, not a question mark. If this was 2011, and the trajectory was up, then probably the right price.. but after last year, the price has gone down.
Neither team does this trade, but it was a good attempt.
Wow, and people say the Leafs and Habs overate their players? I know this is a proposal from a Leafs fan, but I can't see many people offering up our #1/2 Dman/Captain + a good prospect + a great 3rd line center + a Top 15 pick...
That's ridiculously bad for the Leafs and I LOVE Duchene.
