Trade deadline day is finally here. It's probably going to be relatively quiet for the Ducks, as shown by Bob Murray's comment to Eric Stephens of the OC Register:
Ducks are working on stuff but won't overpay as GM Murray has said. Not likely to move their 1st or 2nd just to add any C or F.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) April 3, 2013
Not at all surprised by Murray not wanting to move their first or second round pick. If they're going to build a contending team around Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, they're going to need quality, early round draft picks for years to come.
I have a feeling if any moves are made today, it's to bolster Norfolk's playoff run, instead of the Ducks. We'll post anything that happens, like...

news from last night. Ducks sign college free agent Steven Whitney from Boston College. second in nation in goals. #tradecentre— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) April 3, 2013
Whitney's Boston College profile lists him as a 5'7" forward from Massachusetts. The New England Hockey Writers Association named Whitney, plus two of his BC teammates, as 2012-2013 Division 1 all-stars.
