Any interest in Grabner+3rd for Sbisa?
Or Grabner+Katic for Sbisa?

Katic is a small,skilled pmd.He's missing this AHL season because of falling awkwardly and getting hurt in training camp.He is expected to be ready by next season's training camp.A writer said after his injury,that he would have been the 1st callup if not for the injury.
These two proposals don't really help us. Replacing a young 2-way dman (Sbisa) with a Top 6 forward may help with scoring, but creates a defensive hole. Not much interest in Katic because we have an abundance of offensive dmen in the organization who will be at the AHL or NHL level by next season.

Plugging a hole (more scoring help) by creating another hole on the blueline doesn't help the Ducks moving forward.
