There are plenty of prominent defensemen rumored to be on the move as we creep closer to the deadline: Chris Pronger, Jay Bouwmeester, Filip Kuba, Tomas Kaberle (depending on the week), at least half of the Colorado Avalanche blueline.
And then there's Scott Niedermayer of the Anaheim Ducks.
You want an impact defenseman, who can provide both scoring and shut-down coverage in his own end? You want a savvy veteran with some championship bling? You want an incredible salt-and-pepper beard in all of your postseason photos? If the answer is yes to all, then he'd be your guy; provided the Ducks actually move him, of course.
We'll talk about defensemen on the trading block, those amazing Jaromir Jagr rumors from yesterday, what the Pittsburgh Penguins can do to get back in the playoff picture and a ton of other items in our weekly rumors and scuttlebutt chat at 1 p.m.
