I would be shocked if the Flames were able to trade for Duchene.
I don't disagree. But what the Avs want out of the deal has to be considered too. You're not getting a player like Duchene for Brouwer and picks. You're probably not getting him for unproven futures. The Avs will want a player in return that addresses their weakness. Brodie seems to be the type of player they are looking for. If I were Treliving I wouldn't make a move. I think this team is going to see improvements on the scoresheet with the players they have. No need to go down this road.
