The Ducks have at least two forwards along with three defensemen who could be moved at the deadline
24-year-old forward Max Comtois He could benefit from a change of scenery as he has been struggling this season. He is an RFA earning $2.037 and has arbitration rights. His trade value is hard to say. Maybe he could be a fallback option for the Calgary Flames if they can’t find a scoring winger elsewhere.
Forward Adam Henrique $5.825 million plus a modified no-trade clause remaining.
Who should go all-in?
Daily Faceoff: Mark Larkin thinks it should be the Toronto Maple Leafs, with GM Kyle Dubus under contract for next season and needing a playoff result. Could look to a top-four defenseman, an upgrade in net or a middle-six center. First, they have to consider moving a top prospect and a young roster player if necessary.
Steve Ellis goes with the Edmonton Oilers because they’re wasting away Connor McDavid And Leon DrysaitlIts peak year. Need to pick or move young prospects. The scoring and blue line could use help and maybe an upgrade in net.
Frank Serravalli will go with the Winnipeg Jets. They’ve got the goaltending and scoring but could use a little more to elevate them in the wide-open West.
