The way the Ducks are playing they are more likely to be buyers than sellers, get a veteran guy or two to stiffen up their defensive game (faceoff guy, stay-at-home D). Either that or basically stay pat unless the right circumstances come up to move vets. I think the Ryan panic is over, it probably ended when they were getting Phaneuf-esque offers for him, guys to round out their team but nothing of substantial value. Certainly they could have gotten decent one-for-one return (Bourque, Cammalleri, et al) but that would have been a lateral move at best.

I don't see the Ducks selling off any young guys at this point. Sbisa in particular, as others have mentioned, would be difficult to replace from within their system any time soon.
