“To me if anyone’s doing that deal right now it’s a team like Anaheim, but they’re grinding away with teams that might eventually do it”.
Ducks that might be moved this year
Eric Stephens of The Athletic: (mailbag) John Gibson to the Pittsburgh Penguins has actually been hypothesized in the past. Can’t see the Penguins wishing to trade Jake Guentzel. Would forward Kasperi Kapanen and a 2022 first-round choice work? Tristan Jarry returning to the Ducks makes some short-term sense.

Josh Manson and Rickard Rakell remain in the last year of their agreements. Both gamers require to recuperate from in 2015 and increase their rental trade worth. Rakell ought to be having fun with Trevor Zegras and Max Comtois so he’ll remain in a position to set up some offending numbers.

Adam Henrique has actually 3 years left on his agreement at a $5.8 million cap. The Ducks keeping as much as half of his wage may intrigue some groups.
