Anaheim Ducks General Manager Brian Burke is scrambling and realizing trading Mathieu Schneider and his $5.6 million per season cap hit is not a easy task. There have been up to 8 teams to inquire about Schneider but that number is growing smaller by the day. Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa sun reports Kings, Canucks, Thrashers, Devils, Blues are in the running to land Ducks D Mathieu Schneider. Five teams may be a stretch. It may be down to three teams at the max Among the team’s Garrioch mentions, the Canucks interest has been mild. They have yet to make a offer. The Kings are only willing to acquire Schneider if the Ducks absorb $2.5- $3 million in salary and send an draft pick their way. Unless Burke takes on a salary he doesn’t want, the Kings are out of the running.
