    Heres an article from your Denver Post with Duchene trade rumours exactly two years ago... now kindly get off my junk. Listen I don't have time to search for clippings all day long, I will leave that to you but I just gave you something that applies to what I was saying. Now take your psychotic stalking somewhere else. maybe find a news article on cats or something

    It was a bad situation that would have (has been) difficult for anyone. Duchene didn't do anything over the line, and continued being a good soldier despite how long he was on the trading block. I think you are being a bit home-team biased, but that's cool. Can we at least agree that it easily could have been far worse?
    I certainly don't get the hate for Duchene and have been following this situation pretty closely because I simply didn't want the Avs to trade him.

    In response to the articles of Duchene being the one that asked for the trade, it's pretty convenient that all this came out after Sakic stated that the only untouchables were Mackinnon and Rantanan. Duchene even said so himself that he was caught completely offguard by not being labeled an untouchable by Sakic. I think that moment made Duchene think about everything, which moved his train of thought into wanting to be traded to a contender.

    With the way last season was and how the media micromanaged his situation last year and talked about Duchene pouting and quitting on the team with every bad game (every Avalanche player was terrible last year, every single one), it was put in the forefront and just escalated into a negative situation. There was simply no going back unfortunately.

    I just hate that they traded him, but they got much more in return than they should have.

    I have no doubt that sakic asked for a trade, but it was more likely "hey, Joe, can you please hurry up and get this done?" than it was some revelation to the front office.

    Wow! What a great game! Best of the year so far IMO. That game had everything. Great saves, penalty shot, disallowed goal, first career hat trick for Landy, career high point game for Mac (5)...

    Should have been 7-2.

    Yeah, the kid we got for Duchene has looked GREAT so far. I can't believe he's playing at this level on D at 19 years old

    The other kid they got that they had hopes for broke his arm I guess?

    Guess Jost won't be going back down after all probably.

    Yeah, Orpik leveled him. It was a clean hit, but he was clearly trying to catch him not looking, but that's a nitpick...

    I don't think they are going to call up Jost though, Bednar said he thinks Jost is better suited staying right where he is for the time being.

    Wasn't he centering one of the lines? Who will be the best fit to take that role?

    That's a good question... it's sorta up in the air at the moment. If they don't call up Jost... I'm not sure what they do with that line.

    Maybe Borque?

    Nevermind. It’s Pekka. It didn’t look like 35.

    Looks like the whole first period will be a power play.
