Dilemma of Andrew Ladd’s future with Jets lingers

There’s been plenty of speculation regarding what teams might or should be interested, there’s an obvious one to me – the Anaheim Ducks.

First and foremost, Ladd would be reunited with former Calgary Hitmen linemate Ryan Getzlaf.

For years, the Ducks had a revolving door of left-wingers playing with Getzlaf and Corey Perry and while Rickard Rakell is doing a pretty good job with them lately, he doesn’t have the same playoff pedigree that Ladd has.

As for the players, picks or prospects coming back to the Jets, the Ducks have an influx of talent on the back end, which could make it easier to move one of them – even for a rental player.

Much of the talk has circled around the difficulty the Ducks could have in keeping pending restricted free agents Sami Vatanen and Hampus Lindholm, but they might also be willing to part with someone like Cam Fowler, who is under contract for two more seasons at a reasonable cap hit of $4 million.
