Ducks eyeing AHL team in Syracuse?

From the Syracuse Post-Standard:

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that the Blue Jackets are close to finalizing a deal to
move their affiliate from Syracuse to Springfield next season.

That would put the Crunch in line to pick up a new farm team, and the
most frequent names I’m hearing are the Rangers and Anaheim, with
perhaps Tampa Bay also in the mix.

Anaheim does not have an affiliate this season. I talked to Ducks
assistant GM Dave McNab on Wednesday afternoon, and he said no decision
has yet been made for next season.

I asked him if he had been talking to Crunch owner Howard Dolgon
about a deal.

“You talk to lots of people,” he said. “We’re still trying to figure
out what we’re going to do.The American League is a funny league.
There’s things that bounce around quite a bit. We’ll look at that, if
it’s a possibility. We’ve got to get something.”
