Ducks Ducks trade for Czech rookie Dubalik

The Ducks have been getting ansy the last 4 weeks looking at making some sort of move.

We struck out on a deal with Boeser around a similar package but found a deal tonight with JiriHrdina which didn't take long to complete.

TO WILD
Valimaki
1st (ANA) 21'
2nd (TOR) 22'

TO DUCKS
Kubalik

We've been on the hunt for another Top 9 winger for a while and are very happy to bring on Kubalik.

His Goals/60min is Top 10 in the league and he has virtually no PP time. Obviously there are concerns about him being a one-year wonder, but he sure put a lot in the net without a lot of ice time or a lot of PP time.

I love Valimaki and think he will be a Top 2 dman on the Flames, but I have a 2 yr window with cap space and I am OK paying for ratings now.

Plus, 0.75M and Kubaliks ratings for 2 years is hard to ignore...it just gives us a bit more flexibility.

Thanks Grant for the deal.

Buying low on Valimaki. I might be selling high on Kubalik who is still very young. Hard to tell. But this seemed like good value

This will be an interesting one to look back on in a couple years. I’m curious to see how Kubalik develops. But it looks like the kid can score.

I agree. Both players have risk. People liked Valimaki but it was hard getting full value for him...I am happy with Kubalik's risk.

Iwannabelikemiika and I were talking, and if I lose this trade it's a good thing because it means Valimaki has stepped up...so I'm fairly happy either way
