Long Live Lubo


During the 2012 NHL Draft, Ducks fans learned about a trade that was a bit upsetting. The Anaheim Ducks had traded defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky to the New York Islanders for a 2nd round pick in the 2012 draft. This trade was not very exciting for any of our fans, because they believe Lubo is worth a lot more than what we got for him. Now the Duck organization might be getting a second chance with the trade. Lubo has filed grievance in hopes to void the trade. The defenseman claims to have a no-trade clause on his contract, which the Ducks broke. Lubo didn’t have as good a season last year as he had the previous year, but let’s face it no one on the Ducks did. His drop in stats were very much affected by injury. Early last season Lubo broke a finger and was out for about 4 weeks. Lubo is a hard-worker and has a great shot. If the Ducks still have him in the end, they should consider themselves lucky. Now, I guess we have to just wait and see what happens.

    This blog makes no sense. The Ducks have too many defencemen on the roster. Lubo was injured, but he also admitted he is no longer enjoying playing and was considering retiring. His head is clearly no longer in the game. If the Ducks get him back, they will trade him again if they get the chance.
