If Ryan Kesler were to end up in an Anaheim Ducks uniform, it sounds like it will take a lot to bring him to Orange County.
The article states that a trade for Kesler would assuredly allow the Vancouver Canucks to get a “young NHL-ready” forward in return. Etem, Smith-Pelly, and Rakell all fit that criteria.
It would be highly unlikely that all three would be involved in the trade for Kesler, but it is safe to say that at least one of the young forward would be involved in the move.
