When it comes to the trade deadline, mediocrity and lower point totals get you a lot of attention. Aside from "mediocrity," a better way to describe Anaheim's 2011-2012 club might be to call them a group of "underachievers." This label can garner trade talks and roster moves on any team and is no respecter of record. Considering the Ducks are a team that has spent almost the entire first half of the season at the bottom of the standings, "trade talk" is a foregone conclusion.
The question then becomes this: Who is going to be let go and for what in return? The Ducks' roster boasts a mix of veteran talent and young stars, and as I have said before, it would not surprise me to see anyone go, aside from Corey Perry and Cam Fowler.
This is a list of five possible trade scenarios for the Anaheim Ducks by the trade deadline. Thoughts and disagreements are welcome.
