Anaheim Ducks Rumours


Use our rumours form to send us nhl trade rumors.

(single word yields best result)

12 Sep 2017 13:59:32
Hampus Lindholm, Kevin Bieksa, Logan Shaw and a 2018 3rd Round Draft Pick and to the Boston Bruins in exchange for David Pastrnak (signed to 7 year/ 7 million per year deal) and Adam McQuaid.

- Anaheim beefs up their attack to contend with a beefy Edmonton Oiler offence. This will make the Pacific division title a race, as otherwise, it seemed a given that Edmonton would win.

- Anaheim loses a big piece of their defence, however, with Jacob Larsson, Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Brandon Montour and Josh Manson in place, their defense still looks fine for the future.

- Of course, Anaheim would HATE to give up Lindholm, however, in order to get a 75 point guy, who is only getting better, ya got to give up something good.

- Boston loses the biggest and flashiest part of their offence, however, they acquire a dman who will compliment Charlie McAvoy and Torey Krug in the future.
- Lindholm is a solid dman who will be able to produce offence from the backend, and will allow Boston to produce a good defence core - something they have been lacking for a while now.

& don't tell me that Anaheim can just give up Fowler for Pasta. Lindholm will HAVE to go in order to get Pasta. Unless Sweeney is crazy. Which is entirely possible as well.

12 Sep 2017 14:05:09
Don't think bruins win a trade for Pasternak but this is definitely the best one I have seen. At least makes you weigh the options. Only thing is I feel that if a 7x7 deal was possible, they wouldn't trade him. Then again, seguin, kessel and Hamilton never saw a second contract because bruins wouldn't get off their wallet, so it's possible I guess lol.

12 Sep 2017 14:20:49
I can't see the Bruins doing it because they really only have like 5 players players that can get goals (Bergeron, Pasternak, Marchand, Vatrano, and Krejci)

12 Sep 2017 15:06:07

thanks man. I read that Boston only wants 6 mil x 7 and aren't budging much. Maybe if the new deal is 7.5 x 7?

12 Sep 2017 20:58:11
I think 7.5 is perfect. He's a lot more of a game breaker than horvat who got 5.5, and he's more important to his team than most comparable guys because bruins best offensive weapons from their better days (Bergeron, krejci) are on the wrong side of 30. Draisatls 8.5 is higher because he can play multiple positions and run his own line. 6,7 or 8 years at 7.5 should be fair.

05 Aug 2017 09:58:31
1st trade:

Leafs- Tyler Bozak + Kasperi Kapanen
Flames- Sam Bennett + Rasmus Andersson

2nd trade:

Leafs- Jeremy Bracco + Frederik Gauthier
Ducks - Brandon Montour

Sign Jarome Iginla

JVR - Matthews - Nylander
Hyman - Bennett - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Iginla
Komarov - Moore - Brown

Gardiner - Rielly
Montour - Zaitsev
Andersson - Carrick / Hainsey & Marincin

05 Aug 2017 16:29:56
Both awful for team not called Toronto. Montour has shown he will be a top 4 Dman and could be a high end offensive threat for years to come with his skating. Gauthier has shown in 3 years that he's close to being trusted as the 4th line center for the leafs, but they still felt the need in another 1 year helper in Dominic Moore. Bracco could be a really good player, or another undersized guy that represents your AHL team very well for 10 years. Not the return you need for moving montour.

06 Aug 2017 21:35:30
Wow! The Flames trade is enticing. But, too much cap hit. So the Flames remove Bennett and Rasmus and replace them with Brouwer and Poirier.

07 Aug 2017 04:46:47
Well then Toronto just laughs in your face Borje.

07 Aug 2017 18:08:55
The Montour trade might be the worst trade I've seen in a while. Matthews for Ritchie and Steel? Lol.

08 Aug 2017 15:41:52
Which is what I was doing Yup. I don't think his trade proposal was serious.

27 Jul 2017 17:59:10
Penguins and ducks trade

Ducks trade -Andrew Cogliano

Penguins trade- 2nd,4th or 3rd

Pens lines
Guentzel Crosby Sprong
Hörnqvist malkin kessel
Hagelin cogliano Sheary
Reaves rust Kühnhackl

Letang Dumoulin
Schultz cole
Hunwick Määttä


28 Jul 2017 17:36:26
Why does Anaheim do this? Do they need a salary dump? Also, doesn't Cogliano play wing for Anaheim?

28 Jul 2017 20:14:46
Trade seems fair but I don't think Anaheim wants to lose Cogliano. He brings durability and many intangibles.

12 Jul 2017 19:40:40
MTL: Plekanec, Mete, 2nd

ANA: Rakell.

12 Jul 2017 21:36:04
Drouin for Vermette, random guy I've never heard of, 2nd


13 Jul 2017 00:09:50
Victor Mete plays for London knights and had more points and +|- than olli juolevi and plays same position wouldn't trade him if I were habs tbh.

13 Jul 2017 02:00:45
mtl retains half of pleckys salary, then add a 5th/ 4th.

13 Jul 2017 02:57:30
rakell is like 23, locked up for 5 more years at 3.75 mill and just scored almost 35 goals in 70 games lol you have to be kidding me. If he has another year even close to that good, he will be one of the biggest bargains in the entire league. Guys scoring 30+ goals are going to be getting 7-8 mill now.

13 Jul 2017 05:29:14
Laughable from the Ducks.

13 Jul 2017 08:28:04
Ya. Know way Ducks trade him, he's taking over for Perry as the teams top sniper. And has an amazing contract.
And I also agree with MTL4kife. Mete needs to stay in Habs system.

14 Jul 2017 12:52:45
I'd do it from mtl.

16 Jul 2017 06:51:56
mtl can not trade anymore young d man juulsen or mete no for me.

11 Jul 2017 02:18:23
Leafs trade- JVR(keep 25%) ,2018 2nd.

Anaheim trade- Montour

11 Jul 2017 07:38:47
Montour is worth more than JVR alone, imo, let alone retaining money, adding a 2nd and factoring in that JVR is a UFA soon.

11 Jul 2017 09:03:58
what has montour done to be considered worth more than JVR? JVR is certainly worth more to Anaheim than Montour is.

11 Jul 2017 10:43:20
From what I hear and read, Montour is def one of the NHLs better young d-man and also right-handed. Plus as I said JVR is a UFA next summer.

11 Jul 2017 10:44:25
Reading the trade again, I was silly, lol. It's the Leafs sending the 2nd. So the trade is alright, imo. JVR retained and 2nd for Montour is just about right. Sorry for that first comment, I was confused smh.

11 Jul 2017 14:42:20
Lol Draisaitl_94.

11 Jul 2017 16:19:37
The reason for not retaining 50% is because they need cap to sign Connor Brown.

11 Jul 2017 16:38:08
Although the trade would help out Anaheim on LW I think having a stronger Dcore is more important and they already lost shea theodore.

12 Jul 2017 01:46:44
Make it Manson or no from leafs.

12 Jul 2017 06:32:35
McJesus Christ this is Anahiem's defence ATM


Tbh here their defence is just a level above the others except Nashville worst top 4 but better bottom 2 by far.

12 Jul 2017 07:40:15
^dont forget CGY, too.
Giordano, Hamilton, Brodie, Hamonic, Stone, #6.

07 Jul 2017 21:14:22
New at this but going to give it a shot..

TORONTO Trades - Josh Leivo and 2018 3rd rd pick To ANAHEIM in Exchange for Josh Manson (RH Defenseman)

07 Jul 2017 21:20:24
You need more practise.

07 Jul 2017 21:32:26
Ya need to upgrade leivo and I'm a leivo fan but Ana is really high on Manson and should be that would cost jvr plus a prospect and mid pick I believe.

07 Jul 2017 21:34:15
Not enough unfortunately.

07 Jul 2017 22:33:20
I'm a leivo fan too. Small sample but shown he can play and he's a good kid. Grew up close to me, but if that was the deal, I'd pack his bags for him lol.

08 Jul 2017 00:41:24
The leafs really need to let Leivo play or let him go somewhere he can.

08 Jul 2017 02:12:14
Unbiasedjim u in the Barrie area I take it then but I would help pack to.

08 Jul 2017 15:31:33
Yeah. He's innisfil. But I'm a Barrie colts season ticket holder too.

08 Jul 2017 17:02:16
I'm a colts fan as well I'm from the area to bout half hour north of Barrie.

08 Jul 2017 19:19:31
Not close for Manson imo.

12 Jul 2017 01:27:18
Anaheim fought hard to keep players -- including Manson -- from being snatched up in the expansion draft. Not a chance they are looking to trade him for the likes of Leivo and a 3rd.

03 Jul 2017 08:50:18
The Marleau signing seems to be the end of JVR with the Leafs

To ANA: JVR (50% retained)
To TOR: Jones, 2018 1st and Nattinen

JVRs value is probably at a good prospect and a first. It will be a late first therefore the Ducks add Nattinen to the deal so the Leafs retain salary, which gives Anaheim a little more wiggle room to go all in.

Leafs then do this deal:

To TOR: Tanev
To Van: 2018 Ana 1st rounder and SJs 2nd rounder

03 Jul 2017 16:47:05
I like it for the Leafs basically JVR for Tanev. IMO Anaheim takes it but I'm not sure about Vancouver.

03 Jul 2017 20:16:36
I think it works for everyone. Ducks potentially get the final piece they need for a cup run. Leafs get Jones who can over ripen until Marleau is done, Nattinen could become a 4th line centre down the road, and Tanev could be paired with Rielly. Vancouver gets more picks for a rebuild (are they rebuilding?! I have no idea with the signings they made. Crap or get off the pot already) .

I don't know what their asking price is for Tanev but Hamonic set the market value and he is a better player than Tanev with a cheaper contact so I think a 1st and a 2nd should be close to the right value.

03 Jul 2017 21:14:53
DL7 I honestly would hesitate to say Hamonic is the better player I'd rather have Tanev on my team then Hamonic.

04 Jul 2017 03:46:07
Not sure if DL7 has heard of sheltering the youth with stop gap players so they can ripen a little.

Can't see JVR worth that kind of return but the retention helps make it a reasonable deal.
Tanev would be a hard player to replace for Canucks but that is close.

03 Jul 2017 15:43:25
If JVR gets traded it most definitely will be for help on the backend.

02 Jul 2017 23:58:18
Toronto: Connor Brown

Anaheim: Brandon Montour and 2nd Rd pick 2018

Toronto: The leafs need to move a forward and they need Rhd to play with Rielly.

Anaheim: Anahiem was apparently very interested in Connor brown and wanted him in any deal for a dman


Toronto: Connor Brown

Florida: Petrovic and 2nd 2018

Florida: Desperately needs wingers.

03 Jul 2017 01:45:42
Lol that would be a steal for Toronto in either case.

03 Jul 2017 02:17:12
How would that be a steal Brown is a 20 goal scoring rookie.

03 Jul 2017 02:20:24
Was that supposed to read Brown Soshnikov and a 1st for Montour and a 2nd, or do you really think teams are giving away quality players for junk from the Leafs.

03 Jul 2017 04:49:08
@ Nylander I'm a habs fan but I live in Toronto rn and they are my second favourite team I kinda overrate some of their players sometimes but montour>brown. RHD>LHD>wingers.

On top of that montour can already play a top 4 defenceman role and is younger and also defenceman reach their potentials later than wingers.

A fair deal imo would be.

To Toronto: Montour

To Anaheim: brown, 2nd

@Renidrag Connor brown is far away from being junk the only reason why Anaheim didn't trade one of their defenceman to Toronto was because they want Connor brown+ in return but Toronto didn't wanna trade him.

03 Jul 2017 08:09:07
Lol Montour fetched 20 Browns alone.
Doubt Brown gets you a 2nd, let alone adding a top D prospect like Montour.

03 Jul 2017 11:42:54
Lol Ducks aren't adding in a Montour for Brown swap VB, you homer.

03 Jul 2017 14:50:25
Ducks did want brown in any package for one of their young D. In saying that, that does not mean that they are putting together a 'package' including a great D prospect for brown. It would be brown plus some sort of add to get ducks to think on montour for sure. The deal is lopsided for the leafs and you can call him a homer, but saying Connor brown is junk is stupid. The guys a 22 year old rookie with 20 goals bouncing between a 2nd and 3rd line. He was the OHL scoring champion 3 years ago and had 90 points in 110 AHL games. This isn't a kid that got lucky. He's a talented player that has scored at every level and has even more effort than talent. Stamkos had 23 goals in 79 games as a rookie, sequin had 11 in 74 games. Connor brown is not those guys, I'm not saying that, but 20 goal rookies are not garbage.

03 Jul 2017 16:53:38
Drais do you seriously believe Brown can't catch a 2nd?

04 Jul 2017 07:51:05
Well, considering Reaves gets you a 1st apparently, he might very well do, haha.

04 Jul 2017 13:00:02
It was reaves and a second for a first and sundqvist. Stop saying Reaves got a first. Considering any year other than this year that first would have been a second anyways this is nothing special.

01 Jul 2017 14:25:26
COL trade:
Matt Duchene

ANA trade:
Hampus Lindholm
2018 1st

Avalanche get a top 4 D-man; Ducks get a nice forward to boost them up in the West. The 1st round pick is extra incentive for the Avs.

COL trade:
Gabriel Landeskog
Mikhail Grigorenko

CBJ trade:
Ryan Murray
Oliver Bjorkstrand
Boone Jenner

Avs trade another key piece for a young top 4 D-man; they also get a couple of prospects in return.

01 Jul 2017 15:26:13
If u think Anaheim would accept that trade then u are an idiot.

01 Jul 2017 15:28:09

01 Jul 2017 15:40:27
Overpayment by Anahiem. If ya take out Lindholm and say Vatanen, then that could work from Anahiems standpoint. but Sakic will want more than Vatanen.
Still think Ducks made a mistake letting Vegas take Theodore over Vatanen however.

01 Jul 2017 23:53:35
You're over valuing the Aves players. They are really good players coming off down years but there's no way after last year duchene is going to net the aves a arguably top 20-30d man in the league straight up let alone with a 1st. 2nd trade aves are over valued. Again landeskog is a good player but is more of a grinder/ heart and soul guy than a guy that racks up the points, that being said Jenner is similar but if he can repeat last years production puts up better numbers than landeskog and is gritty again to then throw in a top 4 and still improving defence man in Murray and a goal scorer in borkstrand. Way too much from other teams not in colorado.

18 Jun 2017 23:40:23
ANA: Sami Vatanen

PITT: Derrick Pouliot, Oscar Lindquist, 2nd rnd pick.

19 Jun 2017 05:17:48
Well might as well put Vegas instead of Anaheim lol.

19 Jun 2017 06:26:10
That's never going to get u vatanen the players you put up are worthless.

19 Jun 2017 06:29:49
My bad looked at the wrong players.

19 Jun 2017 12:31:03
I'd be shocked if Anaheim didn't have a deal in place to protect Vatanen and Manson.

13 Jun 2017 18:45:20
Before the hopeful madness of the pre-expansion trades start, I just want to reel off my ideal Toronto Maple Leafs offseason

Trade #1 -

To TOR: Josh Manson, Clayton Stoner ($3.25 mill cap dump) and Max Jones

To ANA: JVR (50% retained), Nikita Soshnikov, Tobias Lindberg

Trade #2 -

To TOR - Niemi ($4.5 mill), 39th overall

To DAL - Rinat Valiev

Trade #3 - IF Liljegren falls to #11 (If not I hope Foote falls to #17 but I doubt it)

To TOR: #11 overall

To LA: #17 and Jeremy Bracco (I would only ever trade Bracco to a Western Conference team)

Leafs draft Liljegren at #11, Oettinger at #39 (or best available G), and Mattheos at #50


Brian Boyle for 3 years at $2.3
Darren Raddysh to a ELC

There are my hopes for the Leafs so I imagine I will be roasted for them but I do not think I have said anything too outrageous

13 Jun 2017 19:36:33
Signing Raddysh would be a great pick up for leafs.

13 Jun 2017 21:31:45
Some of it makes sense. Rinat Valiev, as much as I think he has a chance of being an NHL player down the road, currently holds next to no value. At the moment he's an average to slightly above average AHL Dman. Nothing makes him worth more than 3-4 players in the same situation in every teams organization. Those type of guys only have value to their own organization because they have nothing really invested and any progress is a bonus.

13 Jun 2017 22:42:15
I think these are really good and fair trades 👍👍.

14 Jun 2017 03:08:44
Anaheim has a deal in place for Vegas to not select Manson.

13 Jun 2017 06:04:26
After expansion draft trade

Nsh PK(20% retained)

Keep in mind, JVR to teams like Ana and Min for dman defeats the purpose, get something instead of losing for nothing in exp draft. In other words if JVR is going the other way, he still has to be protected.

13 Jun 2017 06:47:20
I think this is one of the most stupid and retarded trades ever. Ok is worth waaaaaaaay more than JVR.

13 Jun 2017 07:06:13
Add like 3 first rounds to JVR.

13 Jun 2017 07:16:18
Even more add 3 first and b prospect and maybe and 20% of Salary I can't say enough how this is a horrible trade and leafs will never never ever ever get subban for JVR just dream on bud and btw I am a habs fan but I live in Toronto and Toronto is my second fav team and this would never happen.

13 Jun 2017 07:19:20
BTW sorry Jpaps ik I'm might of sounded really rude dude but just got to say that I can see you are a huge Toronto fan but with very little hockey knowledge or u just overvalue your players wayyy too much just like ft4all.

13 Jun 2017 10:48:43
I'm official done with this website. Kane for Jordie Benn.

13 Jun 2017 17:21:09
Top RD retained as well for JVR? C'mon, you sound like a blue and orange fan with tunnel vision.

14 Jun 2017 02:38:37
Just awful. Can't be serious.

14 Jun 2017 21:24:45
LOL ya right. nice try Leafs fan.

Now way Jose.

10 Jun 2017 18:19:12
This can be ignored as fantasy as I don't think a four team trade has ever happened but I read all of these rumours and I start to think about which player properly fits with each teams need.

To NYI: Eberle
To TO: Hamonic
To EDM: Vatanen

I just believe that each of these moves fill a specific team need (RW to play with Tavaras, bigger defensive RD, top LW, puck moving RD). You can argue value of each player as not being equal (personally I think JVR is the best player there but he only has one year left on his deal). This deal would never happen anyways, just some early morning thoughts

10 Jun 2017 18:30:05
So Edmonton wins by giving up the least valuable player of the four?

10 Jun 2017 19:14:45
Mcalrty I disagree Vatanen is nothing special weak defensively, Less Physical then most CHL players and Weak shot. Pretty good skater with a nice 1st pass tho. Starting to become overrated he's a fringe 4th dman. Eberle for Vatanen is fair and good for both teams.

10 Jun 2017 19:30:28
Oilers would need to add to anaheim imo. Retain some salary and/ or picks or prospects.

10 Jun 2017 20:58:43
There all probably decently close in value but salary retention can be made to equal things out. Pretty crazy but it definitely fits needs and all players have been on the block. And McClarty he may be but Vatanen is probably second least valuable.

10 Jun 2017 21:01:11
Yes, EDM gets to give up the least valuable player while getting back what is probably the most valuable player. That's how it's supposed to work, right?

10 Jun 2017 22:19:57
Id say oil and T. O make out like bandits. If Ebs with 2 years isn't worth hamonic no way JVR is any closer with 1 year remaining.

10 Jun 2017 18:37:28
Don't like it for Leafs and Ducks. Hmm Hamonic and Eberle big surprise seeing the 2 most overvalued players.

09 Jun 2017 15:20:46
this ones for you FT4A.

(and no no way this happens caause ducks don't need another centre/ edm doesn't need another dman)

RNH for Vatanen

is that fair FT4A? Or is RNH too good?

09 Jun 2017 15:27:12
Nooo let's trade Ebs first 😈.

09 Jun 2017 16:25:52
I have a feeling that Anaheim would only accept that if there were some salary retained.

09 Jun 2017 16:53:02
Ft4a is going to want Getzlaf, Lindholm and 4 first rounders as well.

09 Jun 2017 18:41:12
No from Edmonton I'd much rather have Nuge. Now ebs for Vatanen isn't bad.

10 Jun 2017 01:24:04
Ducks aren't trading a top 4 def for a third line center. Especially one who makes $6million a year on a long term deal.

10 Jun 2017 02:29:17
It's like you literally do not watch any hockey and then talk like you do Borje. Nuge was second line center all year. Pay attention.

10 Jun 2017 07:13:59
I believe what Borje is saying is that RNH is only good enough to be a 3rd line center.

10 Jun 2017 11:43:45
Ahah D adds Nurse om RNH to get Vantanen.

10 Jun 2017 21:31:49
I personally think RNH would be a perfect #2 center on a lot of teams in the league that don't already have the position filled. I was just saying that I think that is Borje's opinion.

07 Jun 2017 22:16:25
WPG: 13th Overall 2017, Perrault, De Leo
ANA: Lindholm

WPG gets a left shot defence that they desperately need.

ANA gets a first round pick this year (currently don't have one), a LW/ C that's played for them before, and a prospect from California. Also they free up just over a million in cap space while keeping the other important defence they have (Fowler, Manson, Theodore, Montour, and Vantanen for now.

08 Jun 2017 00:44:41
Wow. Absolutely brutal for Anaheim.
Why do you even post this stuff. So bad.

08 Jun 2017 11:12:54
I thought this was for E. LIndholm and I'm like, hey, not that bad.

Then I saw yups comment, looked back at the trade, facepalmed, and remembered that you [gojetsgo] are a completely biased jets fan.

08 Jun 2017 19:05:34
Good thing you arn't GM.
You'd attain him and instantly have him plucked away in the Expansion draft.

Ducks will get a better offer than this anyways.

08 Jun 2017 19:05:37
Ahah Take Perault out and add Ehlers.

08 Jun 2017 19:48:54
jets are only interested in c. tanav or other lhd man cupboards is full need to move a few guys so top prospects can play every year they add 2 -3 guys from farm system watch for wheeler and b little trades next year then big buff in 2 years?

07 Jun 2017 18:02:37
Trouba and RFA rights to Copp to Dallas

in return

Lindell and 3rd overall pick and later first round pick (originally Anaheim pick)

07 Jun 2017 21:19:01
I think Lindell is projected to be a pretty good D so to add two first round picks, one being the 3rd is way to much IMO.

07 Jun 2017 22:15:13
No from Dallas.

08 Jun 2017 01:51:08
this trade would only be offered on wpg side as it frees up two expansion spots keeping two additional players from Vegas picking.

Otherwise the value is dallas slanted.

07 Jun 2017 02:10:14
Just read from a source that Anaheim already has a trade in place sending away Vatanen. Didn't say with who but I think was pretty obvious he was going to be traded.

07 Jun 2017 11:23:17
Seems true, they put so much faith into Brandon Montour who already has a similar game to Vatanen with a slight grittiness as well.

07 Jun 2017 15:15:03
I really like Montour he's a great skater and has nice hands on the point.

07 Jun 2017 15:14:48
To the Leafs with Manson for Marner.

02 Jun 2017 22:21:02
Anaheim: Fowler, perry, Ritchie, 1st

Washington: Ovi, Wilson

03 Jun 2017 00:10:07
Holy Mackinaw.

05 Jun 2017 06:57:07
Throw Rakell and Gibson in there too so it is fair.

02 Jun 2017 14:41:11
WPG: 13th Overall 2017, Petan, Dano
ANA: Theodore

15 Jun 2017 18:21:03

I don't really have much knowledge about Devils' prospects so what could be the cost for them to aquire Sami Vatanen and Clayton Stoner (cap dumb, lowers the countervalue but helps the Ducks with their cap)? McLeod seems too much IMO, bud maybe Quenneville and a 2nd? What do you think?
