Ducks trade for Brian Sutherby.


And more importantly, three days after getting nothing in return for Ilya Bryzgalov, a second-round draft pick in 2009 is gone in exchange for the fourth-line center on the worst team (statistically) in the NHL?
This was asked in a conference call with GM Brian Burke this afternoon. His explanation:
“Maybe it’s a reflection of the new world. Last year, I gave up a second-round pick for George Parros, that raised some eyebrows.”
“We’re playing teams that are playing Ducks hockey against us,” Burke continued. “While imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, it’s also annoying. … You don’t go into a gunfight with a knife.”
Brian Sutherby is a Ducks guy – plenty of size and speed, while sacrificing some scoring touch – and apparently Burke wanted another Duck guy. There will be another roster move only if a young player (Drew Miller or Ryan Carter) sees a significant drop in playing time; the team is now maxed out at 23 active players.
