Demers to ANA/DAL for young winger

With Souray injured longterm, Lydman retiring and Sellane returning, it seems the Ducks have a need for defencemen and a glut of young wingers.

I know Dallas fans have said they want a right hand PMD as well, both should be somewhat familiar what Demers can bring when he's on his game. Only reason Sharks could trade him imo, is because they have Tennyson who has played very well and projects to be similar to Demers. It seems he also isn't going to be given a role in the top 4 anytime soon, and he deserves that chance as he's done it before very well.


What need to be added for
Etem or Chiasson?

Ritchie, Noessen, Rakell also of interest, though they are not as NHL ready which is needed for when Havlat is umm, injured

Also maybe Smith-Pelly/Glennie ++ don't really see either bouncing back though.

Ducks dont really need a D, they signed Fistric, they also have Vatanen and Lindholm waiting for spots.

Lydman wasn't under contract when he retired, so there's not really a hole there. As the poster above mentions, we signed Fistric to cover for Souray's lost time.

I don't believe Selanne's signing really opens up room for moving a young winger. Anaheim's youth is a big picture plan, while Selanne's re-signing only has implications this year.

I'd pass. Chiasson looks too promising to give up right now. Demers is a nice piece, but we don't need another PMD. We need a right handed shut down guy (Girardi).

Demers' value is at an all-time low right now. Let's play him for the year and see if he can revert to the top 4 puckmoving D that he was when he paired with Blake.

If not, then we let him go. And I'm pretty sure we will not be getting anyone of Etem's or Chiasson's caliber for him.

Don't think he ever played with Blake, or at the very least not much. His most impressive season was dominating weaker competition with Huskins and then he showed his top-4 potential when they put him with Vlasic for a stretch, but his play time with Blake was minimal if my memory is correct.

Not interested in moving Etem. He's pretty much untouchable at this point in time.

I don't think Etem is available. Kid could be a stud.

Depth on D is critical as shown by Chicago this past playoffs or how every team that considers themselves a contender always looking for help on D at the deadline.

The Sharks are in a win-now mode with the clock ticking on the careers of Boyle, Marleau, Thornton.

A team like the Sharks who want to win now won't be betting on a prospect who will have some growing pains that projects to only be as good as what they currently have in Demers whose on a very cheap contract, RFA controlled and only 25.

San Jose won't be moving Demers right now. He didn't have the best season and his value is probably the lowest it's ever been. If there looking to move him , they'll hope he plays well and trade him mid season.

Only way I'd consider moving Chiasson or Ritchie is as a part of a package for Burns, which obviously will not be happening, as much as I'd want it to.

This.

Demers isn't bad, but not worth Ritchie/Chiasson.

Agreed! Etem Is not available and I will say again! NOT available. Get off our ass on Etem please. Untouchable no disrespect to the posters on these boards of course. All of you are why we post and read. Just saying Etem is not available and Anaheim is blessed to have him.

Let's take Chiasson and Etem out of this conversation. I would be interested in Noeson or Rakell

Still don't think the Ducks would entertain any conversation. They've loved both of those guys for a long time (in Noesen's case before the trade), and I don't see the need for Demers to begin with.
