    It's an intriguing idea, but on the other hand we are deep in young RW who would need to play on a scoring line moving forward (Kase, Terry, Sprong) and also still have Perry under contract as well. Just not sure if there's room for all those guys and Puljujarvi next year.

    From what I’ve seen of Puljujarvi it doesn’t make a difference if he’s on the left side or the right side. Kid just needs to play with talent.

    He's VERY likely a pure rental

    Not understanding why Silfverberg would be a priority for the Leafs.

    Alright well that sheds a lot of light in the discussion for Duck fans.

    Appreciate it. Didn’t know the Toronto intentions with Silfverberg.

    Well I want Picks. If we’re getting rid of Silfverberg that means we are gonna rebuild/re tool this season in the draft. Just like the Kings are.

    I want to compete in this draft with them. But I’m sure other duck fans have other ideas of where this team should go.

    If he could slide over to LW that likely makes the idea more attractive.

    The more I think about it - probably would be a tough offer to top in terms of upside. Maybe there would some variance in opinion on a team by team basis regarding the value of Puljujarvi vs a pick in say the 20-31 range in this draft, assuming the Ducks were offered a 1st by a playoff team purely for the sake of argument?

    To add to my previous post, this deal would leave the Ducks with a bit of a glut of young wingers, but that's perhaps not a reason to turn down a deal if it's the best on the table.

    Been saying it since November. Silfverberg is a very likely target for the Bruins.

    Especially from Toronto, we want picks. That usually turns out well for Anaheim :D

    It always does. And it’s fascinating how often we trade with Toronto when both teams benefit from the trade.

    It’s like Anaheim and Toronto are on a first name basis while shopping for something.

    Silfv was slated to play LW before this season. He’s pretty versatile. Great defensively. And he’s able to chip in
    Plays hard will work on forecheck

    Yes he can, supposedly. I hope he goes to a quality team and wins a cup. He is a great role player that would supplement a team with some elite forward talent. Can play on a shutdown or 3rd line extremely effectively. Not elite on a scoring line but a great role player.

    Silfverberg is a UFA and will get more than Kapanen does on a bridge deal this offseason.. so like no that makes absolutely no sense.

    They are. It's been stated by the Ducks.
    Unless the negotiations are going nowhere, i don't know it the GM is actively trying to shop Silfverberg.

    It was more for the person who originally said it. You just happened to be the last one I saw talk about it
