    Ducks have prospects to make move for top rental player

    Ducks have the prospects for a big-time rental, will be interesting to see if they pull the trigger on a deal.

    The Anaheim Ducks are stockpiled with young defencemen. Against the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday, the Ducks dressed five defencemen under the age of 25, and the team has three more prospects at the ready.

    Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal doubts Ducks general manager Bob Murray will part with any of the five d-men in the NHL, nor top prospect Shea Theodore, but thinks prospects Brandon Montour and Jacob Larsson could be used as trade bait.

    Matheson wonders if Murray will try to move one of the two rising prospects to acquire a rental top-six forward, such as Andrew Ladd or Loui Eriksson.

    Montour, a second round pick in 2014, has eight goals and 38 points in 44 games with the AHLís San Diego Gulls this season. Larsson was selected by the Ducks in the first round of last yearís draft.

    If the Ducks decide to move one of their current defencemen, Matheson points out Sami Vatanen as a player who could be moved for a non-rental winger.

    The Ducks currently sit second in the Pacific Division, three points back of the Los Angeles Kings.

    I picked the Ducks to win the cup this year they started out bad but are now doing amazingly. Should be interesting how they play out. Also read about vatanen possibly being traded for a winger
