<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Wqrrior</b></div><div>given that the ducks are transitioning from full rebuild to developing their assets, i would think they'd rather quality over quantity. I ain't a ducks fan, but i think this is the right move. Rangers might need to add a late pick to balance out the #s (maybe one of their excess 7ths)</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jah1722</b></div><div>Any draft pick trade comes down to who’s left on the board and if you have a guy you love available at that spot. Personally right now, no I wouldn’t do this. I’m not a draft prospect expert but based on the thoughts of how deep this draft is if there isn’t that big of a drop off between prospect 22 and 31 I’d rather get the extra player too.</div></div>

These two summed up my thoughts almost exactly, Value wise it is probably close and a team that needs to start building a prospect pool probably says yes, but the Ducks need to focusing on deepening and developing, I think they would stand pat unless they are in love with a player they don't want to risk missing.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>I'm having flashback nightmares. It is so similar to the Brian "The Brain" Burke trade to move up to get Tyler Biggs, and then the Ducks picked Rakell and Gibson.</div></div>

Glad im not the only one that made that comparison. Also the Ducks and Leafs traded swapped 2011 and 2012 6th rounders which went to turn into Josh Manson and Ryan Rupert :grimace

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mytduxfan</b></div><div>Can someone explain what is the hype around Timmins? I see him listed alongside a 1st in deals for Rakell all the time and I just don't see why he's so highly-regarded. He's an early second rounder, but I don't see anything special. At best he's got top 4 potential, but comes with prior concussion too. IMO, we really don't need more players susceptible to brain injuries (Depres, Kase).



Yeah, Kase is a firecracker. That was a good deal for you guys. Hopefully your big boys can protect him from anymore concussions.

Ritchie is "meh". I have no concerns about him being a big game player in BOS. Good size and happy to get into those tough areas, but his skating isn't good enough for the modern NHL and he's too dumb to anticipate the play.</div></div>

Timmins has become a driving force in the AHL, showing some dynamic elements and consistently making plays. The only real hole in his game at this point might be that he doesn’t have the hardest shot in the world. And on the scale of things that matter to me for a defenceman these days, a threatening shot is near the bottom of the list. Otherwise, he’s 6-foot-2, he has begun to fill out, he’s a smooth skater who will get more powerful as he gets even stronger, he’s got NHL hands for his size, he’s a superb outlet and seam passer and he has always been a mature defender for his age, demonstrating an impressive ability to read the play and pick his spots.

Yeah concussions could be an issue but he is a player with a very high ceiling imo, I would take him and a first in a heartbeat for Rakell
