LOL, thats it? I would have done Michalek or Bernier, Carle, and a 1st any day of the week to get Pronger at the time.
As I recall the Ducks traded Joffrey Lupul, Ladislav Smid, a 1st round selection in 2007, a conditional 1st round selection (if Ducks make SCF, and they did), and a 2nd round selection in 2008.
Lupul scored 28 goals that year, Smid was a good looking prospect who hadn't proven anything in the NHL yet.
When you look at it in hindsight, its clear that the Ducks had the better offer. An additional 2nd and conditional 1st.
Hell, in hindsight, you know who we should have traded? Cheechoo striaght up. That would have worked and man we would have been a vastly different team then and today.
