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.

Danny Duberstein is good at two things ...
