10. ANAHEIM DUCKS

The Ducks have plenty of talent on their roster, but they only find themselves at the tenth position because of the Bobby Ryan trade with Ottawa. The Oilers will likely make an overture, but it would require a Cam Fowler or Hampus Lindholm in return, which is impossible for the Oilers to match.

TRADE SCENARIO

ANAHEIM—10th overall, Cam Fowler
EDMONTON—3rd Overall, Martin Marincin

WILL IT HAPPEN? No, these are two teams at very different spots with their rosters. Despite the history of trades between them, this is a trade with a ton of risk attached to it that won’t see the light of day.
