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.
I'm not sure any of those forward would make sense. Some clearly have more trade value than Parrish, and some wouldn't be of much help to the Isles.
If the Ducks need defense, a multi-player deal might make more sense. Say Parrish and Martinek for Vishnevski and a pick or prospect.
