The Ducks don't have enough depth on defense to trade either Vishnevski or Sauer, IMO. Losing one of them puts either Simpson or Ward (on D) into the lineup and nobody wants that. Thats with a completely healthy defense corp, god forbid an injury or two occur. Popovic is the only one in the minors remotely close to the NHL and Murray wants him to stay in the AHL. The farm system beyond the AHL is devoid of top-end defensemen.
What the Ducks do have is lots of young forwards. Chistov, Lupul, Smirnov, Getzlaf, Perry, Brent, and so on. The question is which one(s) does Milbury want, if any, and will Murray part with that guy.
