What Just Happened Here? Anaheim Ducks

Ever have that flurry of just shit go down that you're just like "What just happened here!?!?11?11?!!" Yeah well, that's how free agency kinda feels. So we'll recap. Maybe Denson will even pop his head in. Maybe. But might as well go in alphabetical order, that way, won't get lost. Or forget, oh wait, I'm sure I'll forget.



Free agents:
D Scott Niedermayer, 6,750,000 (u)
C Todd Marchant, 2,660,000 (u)
RW Rob Niedermayer, 2,000,000 (u)
D Bret Hedican, 870,500 (u)
LW Brad Larsen, 560,000 (u)
C Josh Green, 550,000 (u)
D James Wisniewski, 900,000 (r)
C Erik Christensen, 750,000 (r)

In
C Erik Christensen, 1 year, $750,000 (re-signed)
D Scott Niedermayer, 1 year, $6M , plus bonuses (re-signed)
F Saku Koivu, 1 year, $3.25M (Montreal)

Trade In
F Joffrey Lupul, 4 years, $4.25M
D Luca Sbisa, 2 years, $.875M

Out:
D Francois Beauchemin (Maple Leafs)

Trade Out:
D Chris Pronger (Flyers)


So there's the Free Agency breakdown for the Ducks, with a little trade action sprinkled in. They have James Wisniewski left to sign, an RFA who was obtained from the Hawks for Sami Pahlsson. Otherwise one would assume that the Ducks are pretty well set.

From my standpoint? The Ducks did an amazing job this off-season. Whether or not you think moving Pronger was the right decision, the return for him was downright sick. 2 1st rounders, Luca Sbisa, and Lupul? I'd take that.

Take a look at that top 6...Perry, Getzlaf, Selanne, Lupul, Koivu, and Ryan. Bringing in Koivu gives them a legitimate 1-B line, to go along with that 1-A. Speed, size, and I'm sure Captain Elbows taught them plenty about grit before he left. The Ducks are in fine shape...especially if Jonas Hiller turns out to be the real deal.

Word around is that Nick Boynton will also be joining the Ducks here shortly, not a big signing, but a decent one.

So what do you think of the Ducks moves so far? Legitimate top 5 team in the West? Eh? Eh?

They should still be the Mighty Ducks.
