Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
...the fact that the Ducks opted to trade McDonald, a centre, as opposed to a defenceman such as Sean O’Donnell or Shane Hnidy or Mathieu Schneider, did come as something of a surprise.
Some may look at the trade and decide that the Ducks aren’t as good now with Weight as they were with McDonald.
Fair enough, that is not an illogical face-value assessment, even though McDonald’s numbers are way down this season.
But in the grand scheme of things, this McDonald trade is precisely what the doctor ordered for the Ducks and will help the organization in ways you don’t immediately see.
Now, if you believed Corey Perry was going to be moved, or there was even some talk of him being moved, then you probably should not be reading this. Go back to the drama queen channel, you may find something you like there.
