<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jded</b></div><div>I can’t tell you what league consensus is on him as to whether he’s overrated or not. What I can say is he’s playing great hockey, looks the part, and is improving every year. He’s a 22 year old first round pick typically playing with mediocre line mates, I have no idea why you would assume he is peaking right now and will regress. He looks as good as his stats suggest on the ice every night, and plays consistent hockey. His points aren’t a fluke. And if you could trade him high and get great value? Sure, I’d trade anyone under those conditions if you were truly getting great value. Is Chychrun good value? Sure. But not when you’re throwing a first round pick in there. Two guys who were drafted relatively reasonably for their value 7 picks apart in drafts 2 years apart, and you’re throwing in a first round pick to get older by a year and move up 7 spots. I don’t see great value anywhere in it. I keep Lundy</div></div>
I think he'll regress because he's shooting +20% right now and he and Silfverberg currently hold the worst xGF% and CF% on the team. However, for some reason, his reputation is exploding this year, despite the fact that his numbers haven't been ideal and his counting stats aren't sustainable. So personally I think the Ducks should sell high for a 23-year-old top 4 D with term who can slide in where Lindholm was, and let one of Steel, Groulx, or another prospect fill out the 3rd line C role that Lundestrom would hold in the future. Chychrun is far more valuable to a team than Lundestrom.

Well, I guess it's more of a retool. Management seems to recognize that the Ducks aren't going to be contending for a Cup this year as Solomon said they are still in a rebuild. With valuable core players going to UFA status, this current conglomeration of the Ducks isn't worth trying to keep together given the age of the pieces.
Losing these pieces will definitely hurt them competing this year but it will set them up to really succeed when McTavish, Perrault, Zellweger, Thrun, and Pastujov break into the roster. It's not about just being in the playoffs, it's about setting up a team that can win within Zegras and Drysdale's primes. However, with the pieces still on the team, and players coming back from injury, I think this Ducks roster could still make the playoffs beating out one of SJ, WPG or NSH for a wild card spot.

He's a defensive defenseman. LOL you don't think Lou would pull a move like that? He traded a 2nd rounder for 37-year-old Greene getting paid 5M who had a 45.24CF% and 46.17 xGF% on the Devils, he was the second-worst D-man on his team in controlling play, and by no means an offensive phenom. Hakanpa is 28, RHD, 6' 5", has an 800K contract, and actually has better defensive stats than Greene has had the last 5 seasons, 49.34 CF%, and 47.89 xGF%.
Lou would absolutely give up a 3rd for Hakanpaa.
