The Ducks have at least two forwards to go along with three defensemen who could be moved at the deadline
24-year-old forward Max Comtois may benefit from a change of scenery as he’s been struggling this season. He’s an RFA making $2.037 and has arbitration rights. It’s hard to say what his trade value is. Maybe he’d be a fallback option for the Calgary Flames if they can’t find a scoring winger elsewhere.
Forward Adam Henrique has another year left at $5.825 million and a modified no-trade clause.
Who should be going all-in?
Daily Faceoff: Mark Larkin thinks it should be the Toronto Maple Leafs, with GM Kyle Dubas without a contract for next season and needing playoff results. Could look at a top-four defenseman, an upgrade in net, or a middle six-center. They have to consider moving a first, a top prospect, and a young roster player if need be.
Steve Ellis goes with the Edmonton Oilers as they’ve been wasting Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl‘s peak years. Need to move picks or young prospects. Could use scoring and blue line help and maybe an upgrade in net.
Frank Seravalli would go with the Winnipeg Jets. They’ve got the goaltending and scoring but could use a little more to put them higher up in the wide-open West.
