Ryan Whitney to the Ducks.
How will Ryan Whitney look in black and gold? Probably the same way he looked in black and yellow and sometimes light blue… shit. Whitney had so much promise when he broke into the league in 2004. Since his 60 point season; however, his production has plummeted. He was apparently playing with an injury in the latter half of last season, but of season surgery was supposed to fix that. This season, not only is his doing a terrible job manning the powerplay, but also not playing much defense (-15).
I believe that Colorado or Tampa Bay would have been better trading partners with Pittsburgh in a deal for Milan Hejduk or Marty St. Louis, which was also rumored. Chris Kunitz is not exactly on the same level as the two mentioned, but he is a proven scorer who can play with superstars.
