Watched insider trading and according to LeBrun Anaheim needs a defender and are willing to trade a young forward for D. The Penguins were one of three possible trade partners.

I'd be ready to ship Despres if it would land us a player like Etem

Agreed. Kind of doubt he's the young forward the Ducks want to part with though.

We would definitely have to add, but he is a player i'd have no problem adding

Like you said though, have a hard time seeing the Ducks moving a player like Etem after them dealing Ryan away this past summer

Palmieri is the guy I want here. Hope Shero is high on him b/c we definitely make good trading partners.

Heard LeBrun say this as well...

Dreger - Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray is looking for a defenceman and its believed Toronto, Pittsburgh and maybe Philadelphia are involved. They want a young defenceman and may give up a young forward in return.

I don't want to give Despres up. Send Nisky and make it relatively cheap.

You think they'd give up KP for Despres?

To get a player like Palmieri in the system we'd need to give up Despres. We're not getting anything near Palmieri for Niskanen.

I'd consider it. The needs align and they're similar prospects at similar points of their development.

Palmieri for Despres makes so much sense on so many levels. Maybe Pens throw in Jeffery as well.

I don't like it. I'm big on Despres still and I'm comfortable with our winger situation as it is.

Sooner or later we'll need replacements for Kunitz and Dupuis but we'll worry about that when the time comes. I personally wouldn't give up Despres for KP, although he certainly is an intriguing young player.

If you have a chance at landing a stud like KP, then you have to take it IMO. Nisky stays on the roster this season. Any of Maatta, Dumoulin and Harrington replace him next year.

I'd have no problem with that.

Despres for Silfverberg or Etem?

or maybe GMRS uses voodoo to talk them into sending us Gibson... a man can dream.

Orpik ---> Bortuzzo
Niskanen ---> Dumo

That's over 6M in 2 players replaced by 2 cheap guys who can do the job good. Maatta can go to WBS next year. Harrington takes over for Martin.

I'm too high on Despres to want to see him moved for anything short of a can't miss prospect back.

If Shero got KP for Nisky and a third/mid level prospect/Jeffrey he'd be a god.

Just dreaming a little dream though.

Where do people even think Palmieri or any new forward would fit in the lineup? Realistically, with Bylsma being Bylsma.

Niskanen, Jeffrey and Glass.

All for it.

Who i like from the Ducks: Palmieri, Etem, Smith-Pelly

Any of them would be nice additions.

Highly doubt they'd shop Silfverberg after just getting him in the Ryan deal.

I'm not that emotionally attached to Despres and Niskanen is still considered young, right?

I doubt the Ducks move KP. That's fantasyland.

They need an experienced stop gap guy with those injuries. That is Nisky, but he is a UFA.

You are looking at an unproven guy with warts... Holland or Noesen maybe.

I dunno. KP is as NHL ready as Despres. And I think both have similar upsides at their respective positions. Both could be stars in this league.

If Shero can snag a quality D-man who isn't waiver eligible in addition to KP, I think that's a win.

Knowing Bylsma....

Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis
Jokinen-Malkin-Neal
Palmieri-Sutter-BB
Glass-Adams-Kobasew

I love KP, but the Pens need Despres' skill and his size as well.

It's a moot point I feel anyway because like I said above, the Ducks need a proven guy now to step in while their injured guys are on the mend.

Just shipping out Nisky and making room for Despres, while clearing cap space is a big win in my books.

Philly? Who would they offer up?

I thought that Philly needed defensive prospects as well. I always hear their fan base complaining about how Homer never drafts defensemen.

With our situation and glut of quality defensemen we seem to be the best fit.
