Tomas Fleischmann is heaping praise onto Duchene

Having played in Washington for years, Tomas Fleischmann knows some things about playing with superstars. He also knows Matt Duchene is one, even if the rest of the league may be a little slow on the uptake.

"If you look at our games, he’s the best player all the time."
