except Phoenix is in a playoff race and they have also said that Doan isn't going anywhere.
I wonder what it would take to pry Andrew Ladd out of the Peg. I know he hates Kesler's guts and the feeling is likely mutual but they are pros so I'm sure they could work it out.
Also, Doan has a NMC. Besides, I don't know how many times I have read or heard about him not wanting to leave Phoenix. He is more like Smyth to the Oilers, Linden to the Canucks.
As for Aucoin, it could be a defenseman for a defenseman type of deal, something like Alberts / Rome (if AV permits) for Aucoin.
