I've heard them allude to it a few times, but have Haynes and McNabb actually said what Giguere talked about? Seems like they're avoiding it a little bit.

Really? You want the Jamie Langenbrunners and the 40 year old Doug Weights of the league playing with Duchene?????

They didn't mention it until Avs were up 3-0. If this had been a game Avs lost, I don't think the subject would have come up.

Good win. Helped that the Ducks were flat but the guys definitely put in a good effort today from what I saw. I got here part way through but Duchene looked great out there. I also liked what I saw from Elliot as well, he looked good paired with Hejda in the later stages of the game and hopefully this a sign of him settling in a little bit. It's been a tough year for him so hopefully he builds some confidence down the stretch.

Stastny being back really changed the dynamic of the team. I'd really like to keep our 3 centers if we can.

No one could/would ever say that Duchene is BETTER than Tavares, just that he's on/at/near the same level he is.
This is what I'm saying. The factor of Duchene over Tavares to me is the fact that Duchene loved this team as a child.

That's pretty much it. Pretty similar in stats but that fact puts him over the edge for me. (I'm a fanboy!)

How is Duchene very comparable to Tavares in stats?
I like this comparison better :
Year 1 2 3 4
Duchene: 55 67 28 38
Tavares: 54 67 81 42

Love Giggy. Hope they start Aittokallio tomorrow though. Would be interested in seeing him play, if only to hear Haynes and McNab try to say his name a bunch.

Maybe we could pull off a heist and pretend that we converted David Jones to defense while Seth takes his place and the real David Jones goes to Calgary

If this starts a winning streak and costs us Jones, I will not be pleased at all.

If Ryan Boulding talking to Jiggy post game the other night is what costs us Seth Jones, I'm gonna be pretty pissed.

Only caught the 1st period and a few minutes of the others in between the Nuggets games but good to see a win. Can't lose every game the rest of the way, all tho sucks that the Flamers ended up getting smoked.

Lando with 3/8 goals coming shorthanded. Seen the highlight, what the hell were the Ducks doing? Getzlaf was like ***** it.

I think its hilarious that people are talking about Tavares when it comes to MVP discussions and how he is a top 5 player in the league etc. But yet when you mention Duchene in the same breath as him they say Tavares is in a whole different league than Duchene. When clearly Duchene has very similar numbers to Tavares every year except his one injury plagued season, where he probably should have played half the games he did because he was a gimp the last 20 of the year when he tried to gut it out, and Tavares was injury free and had two solid wingers the whole year.

I'm not saying Duchene is or isn't as good as Tavares but its a lot closer than many non-Avs want to admit. And honestly if I had the first pick in that draft I probably would want Duchene, he loves this franchise and wants to be here and his play this year has been top notch.

Nice to see Landy and McGinn score tonight, and definitely our future when it comes to goalscoring.

The main reason I wanted to finish of the season with 10+ straight losses is that it almost guaranteed a Sacco firing. If we end the season on a good note... I'm not so sure anymore.

About the draft... As long as we draft top 3 I'm fine. It's important to see progress on the ice too.
