    You're not getting both Drysdale and the 3rd overall for a guy with a herniated disc in his neck. Noway Bob Murray does this Drydale isn't going anywhere. And a one year rental in Sam Reinhart doesn't return Robert Thomas Sam Reinhart wants to play on the west coast probably goes home to Vancouver.

    I’d do that Eichel trade as I’d rather trade Drysdale than Zegras but I’m sure some of my ANA fan counterparts wouldn’t want to trade either. With this trade the Ducks top 6 would be pretty good. Eichel and Zegras 1-2 down the middle for 5+ years could be elite.

    Ice rink hard pass from the Blues. That's just wackiness.

    You’re overvaluing a 22 year old who was playing at 1/3 ppg pace

    I could see Thomas and a pick for Reinhart, but there's no way Sunny gets moved. He's more valuable to the team than another team would be willing to pay. He might be our second most-consistent player behind ROR.

    Doesn't matter that Thomas is playing at a 1/3 ppg pace. Bottom line is Doug Armstrong isn't going to deal him for a one year rental in Sam Reinhart. And Reinhart has made his feeling known that he wants to play on the west coast.

    Right… because a top line winger year long rental doesn’t return a young 3rd liner
