I have been looking at the candidates for the rookie of the year and been reading discussions about it. I can't believe how underrated Duchene is. He is the f****ing leader in points among rookies. But nooooo, people are making a fuss about Howard (don't people see he is playing for detroit?), Myers and Hedman. What is wrong with the people out there? Simply not mention Duchene for no reason and talk only about how great these other guys are. I think Duchene is one of the players who tries to play hard all game long and that for some reason people don't want to admit how well he is doing this season. He is not perfect, but none of these other players are either. What amazes me even further is that other clubs pays a lot of attention to him when they play the avs. It seems to me that the general behavior is, "we understand that he is a solid player, but lets not admit it publicly so he doesn't feel that good about it".
