In defense of King fans on that thread, about half of them are actually fairly praiseworthy of #10.
Some of them are saying that they should not throw stones because they employ a guy by the name of Dustin Brown.
My favorite post was: I hate Corey Perry........I wish he were a King.
I hate Dustin Brown... and I hate Dustin Brown.

Hey guys, Avs fan here, just wanted to say good luck with that trade and hope it works out for you. Your team has played like offensively constipated all season, it's pretty clear they were simply missing a Garbutthole to help things flow freely.
Take care all!

I only had to take 6 shots last night from playing the "Getzlaf give away drinking game." Much improved over the 12 shots I took for the TB game. Phew! thank you Ryan.
I can see it now:
Boudreau: "Getz, we need to talk. We're getting reports that fans are ending up in the hospital due to alcohol poisoning. About those passes..."

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).

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.

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!!!

Losing Game 7 in the SCF against New Jersey will always be the toughest loss in franchise history for me, and it's not particularly close.
I don't think it's about motivation. These guys are professionals ... they shouldn't need a coach or new player to motivate them.
