Ducks Ducks move out Skjei, bring in towering Oleksiak

The Ducks moved out a top young d-man today to the Coyotes.

The deal breaks down as follows:

B. Skjei
3rd (ANA) 22'

J. Oleksiak
1st (PHX) 21'

Skjei is a 6'3, 26 year old d-man that the Canes paid a 1st rounder for. He is a strong d-man with good upside. The reality is, with our Top 4 solidified in Weber, Thedore, Dahlin and Provorov, we felt Skjei and his contract was a waste at the #5 slot.

In return, we get a very reliable #5/6 dman in Oleksiak who can play lots of PK and defensive minutes, keeping our top guys healthy. We also get an important 1st rounder back into the fold. Will see how long I keep it haha.

Thanks flambers for the smooth talks.

Good deal guys, the picks moving I feel are bang on to make up for the value in the players. Well done.

Skjei at a 73 OVR rated a decent amount higher than I would have thought. This means I wouldn't have been able to afford him, but it also means flambers does a bit better on this deal than expected.

I thought Oleksiak (66 OVR) would have been a bit higher, but not totally out of whack.
