Cogs would get his appendix removed during intermission and not miss a shift.
Meh. Suck it up. Rub some dirt on it. Walk it off!!!

He Coached the team that won today. Still trying to learn the player and figure things out but he thought Ritchie looked excellent. I asked him how far away and he says not long at all, maybe this year. He pointed out Theodore and couldn't stop praising him. Said he looks, "smooth out there." He spoke highly of Terry, our fifty round pick from this year saying, "he was sneaky all over the ice."
His two main focus' this year are the power play and the forwards. He absolutely believes he can get the power play working well. Also, he couldn't stop raving about Hagelin, who he faced regularly in Ottawa. Says he's going to be great. He's very excited about Sekac and believe he will be a top six forward. Also mention Silverberg as an exciting player who is just getting better. Overall, he feels we are one of the deepest teams in the league and have a whole crop of great young forwards.
I asked him if the Ducks were set with their team and he said, "I'm not sure they are ever done but I think they want to see what they have in their young players." Sounded like they may make a minor move but nothing of significance.

I'm with you. I love Beauch, but he seems to have made too many key mistakes in the playoffs, and I've always thought Bieksa was solid. If Z doesn't like it, though, I'm concerned.
Bieksa just turned 34 and still has plenty of gas in the tank, though we can probably expect him to miss 10-15 games this season due to his aggressive style of play. His point totals didn't look all that great last season but he does have a decent shot from the point, he's defensively responsible, can play big minutes, and plays with a agitating edge. Can and does take bad penalties at times.
Murray only needs to land Marchand now from Boston and Anaheim would be the most hated team ever.
I'll miss Beauchemin - one of my all time favorite Ducks - but Bieksa is a upgrade.

Get over it. Did you start a new thread when he came back from surgery and got 3 assists? No? Okay.
Not meaning to sound like a prick, but he obviously knows that he messed up. It doesn't excuse the 2nd period where we let a 2 goal lead out to the dogs (both literally and as a figure of speech).

I wanted to post this in the Ducks section but it really isn't about the Ducks. It's about all of you who post here.
I will be busy with some personal stuff and will not be able to watch the final game tomorrow or participate in the game day thread. But since it is the end of the regular season I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who posted on these boards this season.
I may not have agreed with everyone but for the most part everyone on these boards behaves in a polite mature manner. I think this is a special group of Ducks fans we have here and I look forward every season to reading everyone's comments. whether it is about the playoffs, off season signing/trade, the draft, bagging on the Queens....(okay mostly mature).
So thank you to all of you. You make following the Ducks a much richer experience and I am grateful to be able to read and participate in all of the discussions we have here.
Now let's all go cheer and pull for the Ducks to go bring the Stanley Cup back to Anaheim where it belongs!!!

SB: Dean! It's Stan the Man! Long time no talk. Listen... can I get the phone number of that motivational speaker you hired? You know, the one who was supposed to tell the boys not to use drugs, abuse women, yadda yadda yadda. We've got a little issue.
DL: Sorry, no can do, Stanarino. That was just a publicity stunt to try to trick Gary into letting me have some extra cap space. I never hired one. I'd already decided to let go of Richards and Stoll instead. Both those guys were on their last legs anyway, so screw them.
SB: What about Voynov?
DL: What's that? Sorry, the connection went bad for a sec. Anyway, I did hire a new PR firm though. Boys will be boys, right? You want their number?
SB: Nah, we're good on that front. The one we've got on retainer was nails after Patty beat the crap outta that cab driver. It's like it never happened! [belly laughs]
DL: Fine. Good luck this season without Saad and Sharp. Hope your aging Slovakian superstar and your half-a-defense doesn't let you down.
SB: Yours either.

If the Flames can somehow shut down the Ducks' first line the Flames have a very good chance of winning. Anaheim has little to no offense from their defense, second, third and fourth lines.
The Ducks dominated the first game when Calgary played their worst game of the season.
The second game was close until halway through the third.
The third game went to overtime, but without the knuckle puck the Ducks couldn't score.
The series is closer than you are letting on.
You and the rest of the Calgary fans who want to continue trolling can just continue on your way. For all the flack Ducks fans get because we're not in a traditional hockey market, this just proves that being a fan of a team in a traditional market doesn't make you any more knowledgeable about the game.
The Ducks' seconday scoring has been one of their greatest strengths all season and the playoffs has been no different. A simple cursory glance at the stats sheets or even a single article about the Ducks from any media source would have clued you in on that. It's widely accepted that the Ducks right now are one of the deepest teams in the league so this nonsense about "no offense" from 2nd and 3rd lines, etc. is just that - complete nonsense.
The best part of your post was when you jabbed at our defense's lack of scoring though. That was truly comical. If the Ducks' d-men don't score then neither do any teams' d-men because we literally lead the entire NHL in points from the blueline right now. And might I add, we've got that lead despite being the only team to get a measly 4 games in the opening round. We've done more from our blue line in 7 games than your team or any of the other playoff teams have in at least 8+.
But credit where credit is due - your team leads in scoring out of all the teams in the playoffs that start with "C" and end in "Y." So kudos to you and your fans!

Gimme a break, go do some homework and tell me what we gave up for Pat Maroon and what his career projectory was at that time?....
The guy has more than lived up to his potential and yes, maybe hes not an 'ideal' top line LW but he is in no way hampering the team with his performance, lets talk about Bourque or DSP (who got traded) if you want to point fingers at guys who got drafted high and have never lived up to there potential, just to name a few...
Maroon should not be getting bashed on Anaheim Message boards... enough said

This! But hey, an extra 8m for your retirement with a cup on your resume already is enticing. His family is set for life. Good on him
I'll never forget his stick save in the Cup final :')
Taking the helmets off and then one-timing Iginla to his knees has to be one of the top five greatest moments in Ducks history...

You obviously didn't watch the playoff match-up between the Flames and Canucks. Sure he was good at one time in his career.. But he was a turn-over machine in the playoffs, afraid to get hit. Slow speed and slow decision making. But of course you didn't sign him to play top 4 D minutes. He is past that. At least now we know we can get a 2nd rounder for engelland.
You're seriously understimating how much Sbisa sucks as a defensive partner.
Bieksa is still twice the player Engelland is.

Yeah he did. He was going to get re-evaluated but don't know what came of it
Keks: "Hey you, smartass, nice no-trade list, but guess what? We have interest from the Ducks."
Wiz: "You have to be kidding, they want me back? Dammit."
Keks: "Nice try, punk. And I'm sending you for a cheap package to make sure they don't back out."
Wiz: "Well, um, did I mention my foot is injured? Yeah, that's it. Injured."
Keks: "Bullsh... they want you injured or not."
Wiz: "Fine. Screw it, I'll go."
Murray: "Hey man, no hard feelings, eh? Welcome back. How's the foot?"
Wiz: "My what? Oh yeah, my foot. It's fine. Let's win this big silver thing now that the champ is here. I'm picking out my stall, tell whoever #4 is to move his crap out of it. And where's Scotty? Tell him to get me a towel and some water."

So, does it bug anyone else that now we're theming special nights based the OPPONENT?
Last night was country night, where you were supposed to dress Western.
So, basically, make the Ponda look as much like Bridgestone Arena as possible? Make the Preds feel at home? Playing country music during breaks like they do in Nashville?
I didn't realize the Ponda was doing that. So does this mean that the concession stands will be serving prison food the next time the Kings pay us a visit?
