Anaheim Ducks: Ondrej Kase for Justin Faulk Trade Rumors Heating Up

Over the past few days, it appears the Anaheim Ducks are in the spotlight, with trade rumors flying about. While most have either been unsubstantiated or non-starters due to contractual No-Trade Clauses, they have all his upon the fact that the Ducks currently have a lot of holes to fill if their aim is to be a playoff team.

The Patrick Laine rumor that has recently surfaced, while likely complete fabrication, hit upon the fact that the Ducks have a dearth of high-end goal-scoring talent. Even the prospect pool is mostly comprised of playmakers. This is compounded by the Ducks finishing last season approximately 50 goals behind the league median and having removed a top 50 scoring defenseman over the last season and dropping a former goal scorer in Corey Perry.
