Oilers Nation reports today that the Anaheim front office has inquired into the availability of Ethan Moreau. The Edmonton winger is signed into the end of next year at a 2M/yr. cap hit and 1.75M/yr. salary. OIlers Nation reports his remaining cap hit for the season as 860K. Moreau has 4G, 4A and is -4 on a struggling Edmonton team.
As the GM of the Chicago Blackhawks in 1999, Bob Murray traded Ethan Moreau, Daniel Cleary, Chad Kilger and Christian Laflamme to Edmonton for Boris Mironov, Dean McAmmond and Jonas Elofsson. Moreau has stayed with the Oilers since that trade.
The Ducks have been linked to a number of front office phone calls this season, but the rumored trades have never materialized.
