    “I kind of knew before they told me,” Duchene said. “I saw them talking on the bench. It’s very strange, but I kind of half-expected it to be the weirdest way possible. It’s one of those things — it’s a business and I’ll have good story for people one day.”

    Definitely the weirdest trade I’ve ever seen. And this comes from a fan who watched the Avs lose Foote and Forsberg due to the salary cap, and then watch Foote return to the Avs DURING a game, after he had been traded earlier in the day.
