The Ducks are absolutely loaded with prospects. Getting 2-3 pieces from the Ducks for Spezza would be tempting. Kerdiles and Etem are California kids, so probably not a move they would want to see, but guys like Rakell, W Karlsson, Noesen, Theodore, Smith-Pelley are all appealing, obviously along with a 1st rounder.
How are any of these appealing when you are talking about trading a perennial point per game player and one of the best offensive talents in the league?
Spezza probably comes close to outscoring 3 of them put together.
There's lots of realistic pieces i'd be interested from Anaheim:
1st Rd Pick obv.
I'm just in awe at their prospect pool considering how good they are now.
I would easily do Lindholm + our first + decent cap dump for Spezza.
I think Lindholm can be a #1 two way guy. Having either him or Karlsson on the ice for the whole game = cream my pants.
That's an incredibly talented blue line. Maybe best in the league when they gain more experience. Then you grab a wing with our pick and run with Turris Zib Smith down the middle or trade Cowen for a good winger.
