Chicks and their Polls: How much is that rental?

Well, well, well. The Avalanche have found themselves back in the playoff hunt. Unfortunately, it's come at the same time as star forward Matt Duchene suffers a knee injury that will keep him out at least a month. At least we know the Avalanche luck hasn't let us down! The worst part of losing Duchene is, of course, the loss of yet another top-six winger. The lack of talent depth at that position needs to be addressed if the team has any realistic chance at all of making it to the post season. At this point in the season, that means a trade. But which Av would make the best trade bait?
