Ducks to shop both Neidermayer and Pronger?
The ocregister is reporting the Duck general Manger Bob Murray “may have to make some drastic moves if the team does not improve quickly.” The two big names that are mentioned are Scott Neidermayer and Chris Pronger.
It is noted that the Ducks have only won 5 of 16 games heading into the all star break and that the team has only won back to back games twice since the beginning of December.
Rather than seek draft picks it is rumored that the Ducks would like to pick up young roster players that are highly touted prospects (established players) for either one of the two former Norris winners.
HTR notes that many teams would covet Neidermayer and Pronger. One team that may show a little more interest in Neidermayer than most is the Vancouver Canucks would love to bring Neidermayer back to BC before he retires.
