Ducks were better off with the Rangers Ryan deal.

IMO I think that deal should've still went through.. as it was already "confirmed" it was as if that trade was already made, and it would've been if the game was out then. Just because a new GM took over shouldn't negate the trade.. If a GM gets fired in real life, the new GM can't reverse a trade because he didn't agree with the last GM's decision making.






Lets analyze this deal with just age for a minute

Vrbata 31
Torres 30
Runblad 22
Michalek 29
Doan 35
Gormley 20

for

Fowler 20
Etem 20
Ryan 25
Sbisa 22

You traded 4 players total, all young pieces all with good or decent potential

for

4 aging players who have reached their peak or close to it
and 2 young players with good potential


Now lets look at the Rangers deal:

Ryan 25

for

Girardi 28
Bickel 25
Kreider 21

Here you get a good defensemen in Girardi, a depth defensemen in Bickel, and a young player with crazy potential in Kreider..


I may not have made the Ranger trade when it was presented, it would depend on where I was at with that team, if I made that trade. But there is no way I would make the trade that was accepted with PHX, not even if it was just Ryan, but Sbisa too?
