And agreed, as well.

The Ducks could pick from the following pieces from Penguins:

Dustin Jeffrey -- does have the upside to be a very good 2nd/3rd line C but won't get that opportunity in PIT (and could make a nice replacement for Koivu eventually)
Brooks Orpik -- if they want another veteran Dman (or Niskanen if they want someone younger)
one of Maatta/Dumoulin (or possibly Despres if they don't want Brooks/Niskanen. I say this because Pens won't give up 2 roster Dmen)
1st round pick in 2013
possibly a conditional 1st round pick in 2014 if they sign him to an extension

(+ Tyler Kennedy would also be available as a throw-in if Ducks were interested)

Now, I'm not saying the Pens will part with ALL of the assets mentioned above, but you can see how a package deal could be constructed based on those pieces.
