Matt Duchene to Buffalo

Just wondering where the bar is set on Duchene's trade value?

Colorardo is likely going to draft MacKinnon, and already have Stastny, RoR, and Hishon in the pivot pipline.

Would a deal along the lines of this get it done?

To

C Mikhail Grigorenko ($1.775M ELC)
2013 1st RND pick (16th)
2013 2nd RND pick (52nd)

To

C Matt Duchene ($3.5M RFA)

Grigo is one of Roy's boys, and nobody gets more out him than Patty does. Duchene and Hodgson are buds, and could make or some decent chemistry down the middle (Duchene, Hodgson, Larsson, & Girgs).

Thoughts?

Duchene's trade value is roughly on par with John Tavares, and I say that as an Islander fan.

Do you think the above package could get Tavares?

Colorado isn't going to move Duchene.

Maybe add Myers and something else but as an Avs fan I still say no.

Buffalo would have to trade the 8th + for Duchene being a former 3rd overall

If you want one of our centers, try checking the value of oreilly (at the deadline) or stastny. You probably won't like those answers either, but they'll be a lot better than this. Duchene isn't going anywhere.

From what I understand Matt Duchene grew up a Colorado fan. He is a gifted center. Why would the Avs move him?

Uh no. Duchene isn't even close to Tavares and this proposal is laughable. Myers and 8 and 16 for Duchene

I guess you probably don't want Duchene, then.

Oh cool, so I should trust the Sabres fan in his assessment of Tavares/Duchene's relative trade values over an Islanders fan. Coolio.

Duchene had a pathetic third season. The other three season were pretty similar between duchene and Tavares. At this point, Tavares is better, but their values wouldn't be too far off.

And it would take more than myers, 8, and 16.

He's pretty much untouchable from a Colorado standpoint, I would think.

I am an Islander fan, so I ought to be motivated to feel that Duchene < Taveres.

Duchene puts up points at a similar rate as Taveres. He doesn't score as much, but is just as good (if not better) as a playmaker.

He is bigger, more physical, and better defensively.

I would still take JT over Duchene, but it is close.

IMO, the third season was just about injuries. He pretty much out played JT in the first two seasons.

Give me a break. What a terrible proposal. PLEASE look at it from the other teams perspective.

Duchene ONLY gets moved IF they draft MacKinnon and IF theyre getting their team needs addressed.

So start with Myers as the absolute minimal requirement, and than add another good solid piece.

That's not a bad proposal at all, although I think Buffalo may want a little more back.
