But the Canucks and Ducks have to look at Niedermayer as a UFA at season's end. Like I said, he's making $2.1 mil, and in today's market, he's not worth that kind of cash IMO. Will the Ducks qualify Niedermayer at $2.1 mil heading into the uncertainty of a new CBA? I think there's a good chance that they won't. I could be way off, but I don't see Burke trading two 2nd round picks for a solid 3rd liner who likely won't be brought back(at least at his current salary).
The things Niedermayer brings to the table makes him worth that 2.1 million,before he got hurt he was on pace for a 50 point season...and hey if qualifying Rob at 2.1 mil means bringing in Scott I'd Do it!

Its probley a pipedream at this point but who knows?
