Anaheim is not trading Ritchie for Eriksson and Motte

Eriksson has negative value
Ya why the hell would they...those 2 are waiver wire type guys. Think Lind and Gadjovic or similar at the minimum
What Anaheim needs is serviceable bodies with Perry out and Ritchie holding out, unless they want to recall Rodin. If they ask for Lind or Gadjovic, they either believe they'll step right into the big club (unlikely seeing as they were one of the first ones cut from Vancouver), they think they can use those pieces in a trade to address their crater among the forwards (possible, but what established player better than Ritchie would that combo fetch them?) or they're declaring this season's playoff hopes dead before the first regular season game is played (and start the rebuild early).

Let's not forget that Ritchie's stock has dropped the last season or two. He's a first-round pick, but he hasn't taken the league by storm and has struggled. If Anaheim still thought he was worth it, there may have already been a deal made. If Benning can offer up a serviceable replacement player with only a year or two left on his contract, or even somebody like Granlund who may have some promise remaining, Anaheim might take it.

Gagner must worth something as a throw in to the Ducks as well...

Lol why do the Ducks want all Vancouver’s garbage?

Eriksson and Gagner couldn’t make their team if they were making league minimum. The fact that they are making the hideous salaries they are makes them tough to move unless Elmer takes a garbage contract back.

duh, because one mans garbage is another mans treasure!!

in reality, Gagner and Eriksson are serviceable players that even though are not really necessary on our team, can fill holes on other teams. Anahiems needs are different from our needs. They need plugs to fill holes while they get through injuries. Those guys can fill those holes. just because we hate them for the roles that they were signed for, doesnt mean that other teams will hate them for roles those other teams need.

You don't need to sour on them just because we are already full of 2nd/3rd line tweeners, and have young tweeners to push them out. other teams havea lack of tweeners. we should export tweeners.

If Anaheim bites, why not? I don't think Goldobin is going to get a fair shake under Green anyway.

There’s a thing called the salary cap. Those two slugs combine for more than 9 million a year. You couldn’t give them away

Seems like not many do. Not the one's that,(or could), bring us excitement anyways...

so we retain salary. we have lots. LE at 3million is a good deal. If that gets us a good prospect/decent pick in return, it will work for us.

heck, retain 1/2 of Gags this year, flip him now, then if LE survives the expansion draft, retain on him later. We have cap space, and they are servicible players (even if overpaid).

I would rather have those 2 idiots for WAY too much money than pilons like Megma, Chaput, and Gaunce in the lineup.

Elmer agrees with you. He’s got basically replacement level players in Gagner and Eriksson siphoning more than nine million off the cap when he could get similar players for the league minimum.

It’s wonderful cap manglement

Ballards and Booths buyouts, retaining on Luongo and Hansen. Having to pay Gillis, Tortorella,Henning, Gilman, Desjardins, probably Linden after all those guys were given the boot before their contracts expired. Dwindling fan interest and taking a beating at the gate. People say just retain on this guy or that guy like Aquilini has this endless supply of money. You don’t think the guy is already pissed at paying these guys piles of money to float.

That is the same story as 2/3 of the NHL teams, with retained salaries, buy-outs, and buried in the minor contracts. Which is exactly why the owners don't care as much as you think, and why they put a salary cap in place so GMs can't go over the limit.

Yeah no. I think the Aquilinis like making money. Theyve probably fired more coaches than any team in the league the last five years. They’ve retained or bought a bunch of players and seen the team play in front of of 15,000 fans and season ticket sales drying up. They aren’t going to enjoy continuing to eat player salaries so the overpaid slug or slugs can play for another team.

Well, Hell; if they've fired more coaches that any other team recently, why not really make it one for the record books and do one more.
