Found November 23, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
It’s just shocking to see the Ducks (who play in Phoenix tonight) where they are. They’re 29th in league scoring at 2.00 goals per game (the lowly Isles are now 30th at 1.94). From talking to sources on other NHL teams, Murray’s phone has been ringing off the hook with trade talks, although as you pointed out, a lot of it is his “friends’’ in the business are offering him anchors, not life preservers. I believe complicating things as well is that the Ducks are on a strict budget, so if they do make a deal, it’s money in, money out, and that makes it that much more difficult to make a significant trade. I know some Ducks fans have told me they’re tired of having Randy Carlyle behind the bench, but my sense is that the GM is not looking at the head coach as the issue. -Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.  Read more from Lebrun and Scott Burnside on a few more NHL topics…
