Players Available In Anaheim

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,

Angered by his team’s continued wretched play, Ducks General Manager Bob Murray said he’s prepared to make dramatic changes and underscored his point by saying only Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu are not available in trades.

Both veteran forwards have no-trade clauses. But if Selanne were to ask to be traded to a Stanley Cup contender Murray surely wouldn’t stand in his way, though Murray still wants Selanne to retire as a Duck.

“And the rest of the players in that locker room, I thought they’d figure out when we changed coaches that time was running, the clock was running quickly here. And I don’t care who you talked about,” Murray said, referring to his dismissal of Coach Randy Carlyle on Nov. 30 and hiring of former Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau.

“But we will not go to draft picks. It’s not my intention.”

We’ve seen this head fake from Anaheim GM Bob Murray before. So Leaf fans need not get too excited.

One moment earlier this season, you may remember, scoring winger Bobby Ryan was made available around the league for a possible trade, the next minute he wasn’t available and Murray had instead fired head coach Randy Carlyle and quickly replaced him with the Bruce Boudreau.
