Obviously I'd like Dubois...

But can't Winnipeg and Columbus finally just make the blockbuster trade we're all waiting for?!

Word on the street is Dubois is a healthy scratch tonight and a deal could be made as early as tomorrow....and I guess some teams have been told if they're still in or not....I can't imagine we are still in (or that we actually seriously made an offer)

Steel, Larsson and a 1st going the other way? What do you guys think were offering?

Offering Jones + Steel + 1st. Jarmo probably wants Perreault instead of Jones, or maybe another pick like a 2022 2nd.

From what I was reading was...the delay is less not happy with the deals but more trying to choose the one they think is best. And I think it's probably something like Rakell+Steel/Terry/Jones/Comtois (although probably a center so Steel or Terry........😏)+ 2021 1st....

but I mean, I'd replace one of them with Perrault if they want....or add in Larsson...don't think I would add in a 2022 1st though...maybe. Maybe i'd add in a 2021 2nd? I dunno. I'm no GM haha but also, Dubois is good, but he's not let's give them 5 players good lol (or maybe he is?) but too many picks I start getting nervous...

I'd actually be the most upset (but not like, a lot) if we had to give up Comtois. a) he's our leading goal scorer lol but b ) he's also exempt from the ED so if we give up 2 players we'd have to/want to protect for 1 player (Dubois) we essentially open up another spot for a forward to be protected.

Oh, well...Bye-bye Dubois....

It's just a bad aura with this GM. Long 13 years I am waiting for a trade or free agent signing that would change the face of this franchise. J. Ferreira got us Teemy Selanne. P. Gauthier years were disaster. Bryan Murray got Fedorov after losing Kariya thru free agency and drafted Getzlaf/Perry. Brian Burke got Neidermayer and Pronger. And what this guy did after long 13 years, except trading for washed up 32 y/o Kesler a few weeks after the Ducks got eliminated from playoffs in game 7?

Even when it comes to the late first or second round drafting, he prefers to draft grinders over proven scorers (recent example: passing on Arthur Kaliyev in favor of some no-name grinder). As a Ducks fan who is watching this team all my adult life, I am really getting prostrated with the management.

Agreed. Might make watching the Kraken worth a shot.

Wait, what?  A washed up Kesler?

If washed up is what it took to get us 3 year legit Cup window, I'll take another washed up player, please!

Win Now Mode imho is very Naive....in the process we see our Ducks are still in Rebuilding and Rejuvenation. Lacking of Scoring needs to be address asap.

Tony DeAngelo is on waivers. Talk about plummeting from grace. Just say screw it and invite him to the party here in Anaheim lol

Sucks he’s such a PoS. We definitely could use him. 
 

i would love if we could trade for Victor Mete. But Murray is probably gonna trade for Jack Johnson because of intangibles

He sounds like a bad locker room guy, but he’s super talented and would be an upgrade over Shattenkirk. Too bad we don’t have the cap space and are already at the 50-contract limit. Maybe Bob can make a panic trade to make room for him.

Yeah, exactly. We are probably better off without him....big picture.

But, I don't know much about Mete. Is he pretty good? Sam Bennett also aasking for a trade....is this the normal and i just never noticed it????? So many players asking for trades?????? Why does everyone want out of Canada??? ...Columbus I understand lol

EDIT: we are 100% better without him regardless. All picture. Just went into a little dive of his locker room issues etc.... yeeesh

Yeah I didn’t realize just how bad Deangelos issues were. 
Was suspended TWICE for using slurs at teammates in juniors 

once for abuse of an official 

Multiple benchings for behavior 

and the reason he’s on waivers is he got into an altercation with Georgiev. 
As much as I’d love the player here, his person is too bad. 
 

Mete is like a smaller Fowler (which might bother some posters here) he’s a smooth skater who likes to carry the puck, may not light it up points wise, but he drives offense and can play a good game in his own zone. He’s a LHD, but I think he could slot in next to someone like Hutton, maybe even Lindholm and probably find lots of success if he can play on his off side. 
 

I’m a sucker for young guys analytical darlings that team don’t seem to want. 
Vince Dunn

Victor Mete 

Julius Honka (who we should have claimed on waivers) 

As for Bennett, he’s still young, but he’s not very good offensively and has a terrible shot. Maybe a few years ago I would have been more excited,  but he’s never gotten back to that form we saw a few years ago. I’d pass, but I wouldn’t be upset if we moved some cap or something and got him back.

Hard no on DeAngelo given the bolded even if we had the space to make it work. Last thing we need is John Gibson hating the defense in front of him more than he already does.

I watched the Rangers home opener and couldn't help but notice during the ceremony how everyone was circling around the Rangers logo at centre ice in the same direction but everyone introduced after DeAngelo went to go line up at the opposite end of the circle instead of continuing beside him. It was very obvious and awkward. I didn't even know about the Georgiev thing.

Adding an over the top toxic element to our already lethargic locker room might break Gibson. We've seen him attack opponents before, how long until he starts slashing at the legs of his own defenders for being trash?
