Could have had Chris Stewart in here, too.
There has not been a better player on the Avalanche in December than Matt Duchene. He's finally showing why he was being considered as a possible #1 pick.
Though it may not be permanent, the Duchene-Stastny-Stewart line has loads of potential down the load and creates a scary second line anchored by Hejduk and Wolski.
The West is unbelievably tight right now and the Avs need to keep winning. When Jones went down, we knew that certain players were going to have to step up. Stewart and Duchene answered the call.
