That is a hell of a haul for Duchene for Sakic .Three picks and three good prospects for the guy. I guess both teams shared in paying the premium but Sakic made out like a bandit. Nashville now has a real nice 1-2 punch in the middle to go with that back end and Ottawa gets a very dynamic player in Duchene but if he walks in 2019 this deal will bite them in the ass big time.

Would make zero sense for Vancouver even if they had the assets, which they didn’t.

Not that we would want Duchene, but wow!!! What a return for the Av's!!!

WWWAAAAYYY too much for Duchene! Glad we were not part of the gang rape by Colorado

So how long has the Avalanches current rebuild gone on for now? Must be year 10. When was Duchene drafted? What a rebuild

The two darlings of the 2013 draft - McKinnon and Drouin contine to bust badly. 3 goals 9 assists for the Great generational - McKinnon and 2 goals and 8 assists for Drouin. Habs will regret trading Sergachyov

Lol Mackinnon has 14 points in 14 games.

Tavares is done.

A recent comparable to Duchene would be the Taylor Hall trade and that was a straight up 1 for 1 deal. You could say there were some social warts to Hall that hurt his value.

Preds and Sens are looking at the here and now. If you are Nate McKinnon, you may be calling Kesler for advise.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

RD, some serious advice. What ever your smoking or drinking, stop.

You make little sense in most of your posts. You back peddle faster that a politician. You have selective memory. You sqwak like a parrot saying the same thing over and over again.

I wouldn't have wanted the Vehicle to give up that many picks for Duchene, never mind the prospects.

But it's funny that 2nds and 3rds got thrown into that deal, they were totally unnecessary and just pissed away.

Extremely unlikely any of those assets turns out to be anywhere near as valuable as Duchene.

Sakic got quantity for quality, I think you would agree.

But hey, they're in an eternal rebuild as the Dude said, so what the fuck...

Yup (although they had to give Turris more than ideal term).

If Ottawa can't extend Duchene, they will recoup assets by trading him.

All that said, this could trade could work out for all 3 teams...

A trade like this was possible largely because Nashville only has "One" more thing to do and they want it bad.

I'm sure they could use Eriksson and Vanek for a Cup run no? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

No fan of the primadonna - Duchene, but as Doc says it's quantity over quality, similar to the failed - O'Reilly return. After the O'Reilly experience ya think Sakic would have learned from it and got more of a sure thing in return. It's a gamble in the asset mgmt department, he better hope at least one of those picks and prospects turn out.

Is that so called "generational" player - McKinnon next to go for quantity?
