The updates seem to make Sheahan out to be more than I have seen. He is developing, but he isn't finishing. I guess from looking at him on the FS net coverage, he looks to be able to handle himself well with everyone on the ice except the goaltenders. This is not what we need on the current team, but he might turn into a good bloke down the line.
When I suggested we trade him for Selanne, I have to admit that would be horrible overpayment. I don't know what it would take for Selanne, but considering we would have to move a forward for him... I would imagine Emmerton would be the deal on the table for him. Eaves would make sense as well, but I doubt they will want a concussed guy like him. Hudler would be a good trade for him, and I doubt with his UFA status and Holland's desire to keep the team together... it won't happen.
In the end, I still want Selanne. I think we win flat with him.
Multiple choice question:
You are the GM for the Ducks and are looking to get maximum value for Selanne who wants to get traded to Detroit. Selanne will retire at the end of this season. Ken Holland has offered these choices. Which do you choose?
1. Emmerton, a 4th line player
2. Eaves, a 4th line player
3. Hudler, a 2nd line player in a contract year that had a poor season last season.
4. None of the above
Given the option for any of these players, I would probably pass on the deal. Emmerton and Eaves are easily replaceable players. Hudler would be the best choice of the bunch, but based on the season he had last season, I don't think that will happen. If anything, the Ducks GM will be going after a big prospect.
I like Selanne too, but I don't see the Ducks trading him.
