This is a win-win situation for both guys imo.
Exactly. It comes down to Zetterberg, Baertschi, and 3rd Round Pick reentry pick or Duchene and Watson/Filatov. Gimme Zets, SB, and the pick.
Maybe you could have gotten more for Duchene but a prospect that most people are putting in the top 10 and a pick is not bad. And there is no guarantee that Duchene is going to bounce back. There's a lot ways Colorado could go and Duchene was in Sacco's dog house last year.
