BREAKING: RYAN KESLER TO THE DUCKS

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Spor

New Canucks GM Jim Benning wasn't kidding when he said he wasn't concerned with trading within the division...


We knew it was a possibility.   I will give credit where it's due: Benning came in to change the way things are done around here, and this is a pretty clear statement that 'Change Is Coming' is no mere slogan.


What do you think of the return here?  Another 1st round pick is good, and two young guys in Bonino and Sbisa.

Defensive help and an affordable forward coming off a career year.  Too early to tell, but I think this was probably the best return they could hope for in order to get the deal done.

Zany update: Listen to Kesler's conference call on Team 1040 here. He wants to win a Stanley Cup, simple as that. I hope he doesn't.
