Leafs: Rob Neidermayer, Vitali Vishnovsky
Ducks: Darcy Tucker and a "surplus defenseman"

The part of the conversation I heard the most of (I was working while the radio was on) was of them talking about which of the Leaf 'surplus defensemen' would most interest the Ducks - Aki Berg, Piere Hedin or Maxim Kondratiev. Richard Jackman and Karel Pilar were also mentioned, but it was generally agreed that the Leafs wouldn't move Jackman at this point and Pilar's health would make him too big of a question mark for the Ducks.

Assuming theres some merit to this rumour, who would the Ducks most want? I think the Leafs would probably want to move Berg and he might be of interest to the Ducks simply because he's the most experienced of the names mentioned and he's still young enough to possibly live up to some of his potential. In th long run Hedin or Kondratiev could be the better defenseman, but are the Ducks deep enough on D to lose a NHL D and not get one back right away ?
No use making that trade for the leafs. NOTE THE REST OF THE LEAGUE, we need a #1 or #2 defenceman. If pilar or kondraitev was invloved, i definelty wouldnt make that trade
