Ducks traded veteran Chris Kunitz today to Pittsburgh for Ryan Whitney. Kunitz is rumored to be joining the highly touted line of Crosby and Malkin for the Penguins playoff push.
Whitney, 26, (6'4" 230) had two goals and 11 assists in 28 games last year and has been slowed a bit by injuries. The young defender fills a gap the Ducks have beyond this season, in their defensive corps that stands to lose a large number of players to free-agency this off-season.
Kunitz was by far one of my Favorite Ducks, so thanks for the great years, Chris. Hope life w/ Crosby treats you well, you were a class act, and a great member of the Ducks in both the team and community.
Looks like the GM believes this is time to blow it up.
