The potential is absolutely there though, and he could be one by the time this season is over.

To be honest, I'm not quite as unwilling to move Etem either. Don't get me wrong, I'd think long and hard about it, but the Ducks have been searching for a young #2 center for some time. If Etem was the deal breaker for Colorado, I'd probably do it. ...but, I'm not sure I'd do Sbisa and Etem. I think Anaheim is giving up a lot of cap flexibility there, not to mention a lot of talent, and to do it for an unsigned player, I'm just not sure about that.
