great, so much for the compliment from Darth about Duck fans being intelligent and friendly, right out the window
a few bad apples, ruin the whole bunch
Now to address everything:
I'd rather not move Vishnevski,
I would like to see Parrish on the team,
Hamrlik is a dream for us that we can't acquire without significant changes being made to the team,
I don't see any moves being made by Anaheim until Niedermayer and Ozolinsh return to the lineup,
if the Ducks lose a blueliner not named Simpson or Ward, they need to get one back in return as Simpson night after night in the top 6 isn't healthy, and Ward is playing better as a forward then a d-man,
Lupul and Chistov shouldn't be available and I would say out of the Ducks top 5 prospects, Perry is probably easiest to acquire. Getzlaf is a gritty center with skill, which the Ducks need. Brent is future captain material, Popovic is the only puck-moving D prospect (tough year this year though). Perry however, cost the team 2 2nd rounders...and he is having a great year this year.
Giguere has had solid regular seasons and one great playoff season, he has only just begun to play bad this season, although he did start slow last year, it seems to be taking him especially long to catch a stride now, regardless, he is our #1 goalie, he is not available and the Ducks will stick with him, Gerber isn't going anywhere as a result. I would say Giguere has proven more then 1/2 the goalies in the league based on his play over the last three seasons, including the playoffs. He is an above-average netminder.
McDonald adds spunk to the lineup, but he is just a third liner, he's being over-valued by my fellow Duck fans
Every day that goes by and Comrie isn't in Anaheim, I start to believe more and more that the only time he'll ever be in Anaheim is when he's playing for the visiting team. I don't think a deal will happen, because it's dragged on so long
I would like the Ducks to acquire a player for the fourth line who can toss the gloves, prove grit and toughness, not be completely stupid in his penalties and also be able to play the game.
That's about it...
