The 10 Worst Trades in Ducks History

And now for something completely depressing.

Note: #1 was easy. #2-3 were sort of hard because you could argue that both Kunitz and McDonald could have brought us a second cup as McDonald was a good second line center, and Kunitz was a good second line winger, and both were very popular. As for the return: Whitney sucked and Doug Weight (as much as I love the guy) didn't do much, as far as I remember. #4-7 are self explanatory. #8 was because Battaliga was a decent scorer and Vasicek would be a respectable D-man in the league before being killed in the Lokomotiv crash. I believe he also won a cup with the Canes. I know a lot of you would have #9 higher, but I feel that we haven't really seen how this played out (though we have a damn good idea of how it will), and at the time of the deal, we all thought Schultz was going to be a Duck, so we didn't need Gardiner. Also Lupul wasn't getting the ice time he deserved and didn't like it. #10: see #4-7. HM: P.A. finally had a breakout year on the Island & the guys we got back played a total of 1 game for the club.
