Niedermayer is garbage - so is Tucker for that matter. I don't think any team wants Darcy at all. The guy is a cancer - all he does every game is whine to the refs about this call and that call. I would rather Ferguson just put the guy on waivers if he can't trade him.

the Ducks have 8 d-men right now (well 7.5, Ward also plays forward)
If they trade a d-man, they would definitely not want another one back (unless it's a two for one deal)
and if they do get another one back, it shouldn't be of the "surplus" kind

To me the values are a bit screwy too, especially if you consider Vishnevski's potential. I think Niedermayer and Tucker are a wash (once this would be laughable, but Niedermayer has become a lot more valuable since the Ducks got him, IMO)
Vishnevksi for Berg/Hedin/Kondratiev favors Leafs IMO and plus the Ducks don't need another "surplus" guy
Your opinion on that move is just the opposite of mine, the Ducks would probably prefer a guy like Hedin or Kondratiev to put in the minors and develop then a guy like Berg who's already a known quantity. But the Ducks would be more interested in an offensive defenseman prospect. Ian White perhaps?

Maybe the value isn't as bad as I thought, but I can't see the Ducks trading Niedermayer without getting top 6 scoring talent in return. Tucker isn't that.
