Don't think that would be too interesting. Zibanejad is a great piece. But Puempel is a bit of a project. Not that Bishop doesn't have value, but his subjective value to us isn't nearly as high as to a team that has more of a need than us. I'd have to believe we'd be looking for something that looks different.

Doesn't make sense, really. Value is not a problem, but there's teams in position to trade away UFAs at the deadline, and there's teams in position to add UFAs. If the Ducks feel they'll be in position to trade one away, they won't acquire one (unless it's a cap necessity to facilitate the deal they like best).

They might get a good prospect and a 1st for him at most.
Your rationalisation on leverage doesn't really translate into reality, though. It's a fair argument for virtually every rental that has ever been dealt. Still, there has always been significantly higher prices paid for such premier rentals. The leverage that comes from a big market (plenty teams interested) has always been meaningful enough to create higher prices than that. No need to expect that to change if it came to that.

Probably, but it would be a very atypical deal for a UFA to be.
