Boo Matt Duchene

from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post,

If you love Matt Duchene, you will boo him when his skates touch the ice in Denver.

While wearing an Avalanche sweater from 2009-17, Duchene scored 178 goals and lost 348 regular-season games (not that we’re counting). The prodigal whiner returns Friday to the Pepsi Center for the first time since last November, when Dutchy got his wish and was traded to Ottawa.

“I’m sure some of our fans love him, some of them don’t,” Avs coach Jared Bednar said Thursday.

Duchene wanted out of Denver, baby. He broke up with us, remember?

And everybody in an Avalanche sweater is better off for it.

“I can’t speak for him. But for the guys in this dressing room, this team and this organization, I think we’ve taken some steps ahead,” Colorado captain Gabe Landeskog said.

If Avalanche fans miss Dutchy, they will boo him.
