The Anaheim Ducks did next to nothing for trade deadline day. Although there are still several trades that have yet to be announced, I highly doubt the Ducks will be involved in anything.
It was a slow day overall, with the biggest ticket (Rick Nash) going unclaimed. The Blue Jackets clearly think highly of themselves and Nash. There were reportedly huge offers for him, but nothing was good enough.
The two trades the Ducks made were, as always, minor league trades. They sent defenseman Mark Fraser to Toronto for forward Dale Mitchell. The other trade was forward Andrew Gordon, who was shipped off to Vancouver for Sebastian Erixon (D). Gordon had potential, but its not a loss in any sense.
Overall, I am glad the Ducks didn’t do anything today.
The Ducks are on an incredible turnaround. Everything is coming together and they are one of the toughest teams in the league right now. Why change that?
Had you asked me in December… I would have said they needed to make a huge trade and switch things up. That is no longer the case. Yes, that even includes Ryan Getzlaf. I was one of the biggest supporters of trading Getzy, but no longer. He’s stepped up his game and has had great scoring chances lately (Even though they all hit the post).
