Defense immediately turns into a question mark. It also means that next year there's a shortage of proven players, requiring either Lydman be re-signed or the Ducks roll with multiple youngsters and just hope it all works out. For a guy who wants so much salary that they won't be able to re-sign Ryan (assuming they manage to keep Perry and Getzlaf). I'm just not seeing the upside to trading a roster player for a shiny new toy.
I just threw it out there as a value proposal, and they said that theyd want Fowler+ and that was the end of it. Id only propose it IF Fowler is back and healthy anyways, so right now its a moot point. And with the way we are playing right now, Im not making a trade of any sorts.
