Saw that the Ducks are shopping Pronger pretty hard while debating whether to stay in the playoff race? What is Anaheim looking for in return?
The Caps would love to have him as he fills our biggest need. Since we're up against the cap, salary swap would have to be close to even - what do you think of this offer;
Pronger ($6.25 mil) for
Nylander ($4.875 mil) - any deal we do, he will most likely have to be included purely because of his salary cap #. He's still a good center, just stuck behind Backstrom and Federov in Washington.
+ Morrison ($1.975 mil) - top 4 d-man (will keep anaheim competitive for the playoff run) who's contract is expiring at the end of the year.
+ Schultz ($760K) - young prospect in his second year in the pros. (read: still a great d-man prospect). Getting almost 20 min. a game. Org. loves him, i dont and we have many more d prospects in our farm system ready.
+ high draft pick - I doubt Ana would give up Pronger w/o getting something that helps the future. You got it now in a #1 or 2 pick + Schultz.
