I just looked up their payroll on the Irish Blues website and I see that Pronger is the only defenseman the Ducks have signed for next season.
Anaheim has a lot of money coming off the books this July (Morrison, both Niedermayers, Marchant, Pahlsson, Moen, Parros, all defensemen save Pronger). They certainly have holes to fill, but I don't see how management would be able to justify trading Pronger when they're in the thick of a playoff race, especially if the return isn't immediate help.
Thats what I thought.....Then they have no reason to trade Pronger, even if they end up not making the playoffs this year or he demands it. They can get two good dmen for the price of Nieds next year.....They can get a good 2nd line center for the price of marchant/morrison and fill in the rest of the roster with young guys and role players.
If they trade anyone it should prob be Niedermayer
