  1. Past hour
  2. American teams have won the cup but the majority of players are Canadian. America owns a lot of stuff - some good, some not so good. I don't care what country owns what - america has president 45 and company and I would gladly sell that to any taker...
  3. Once again, America owns your sport. June 1993......PRIOR TO THE MIGHTY DUCKS EXISTENCE, that was the last time a Canadian Team won a Stanley Cup.

    Thornton can suck an egg, but I do have a lot of respect for Pavelski. He’s a much better story to root for, especially after what he’s been through in the first round.

    Perfectly stated. I could not agree more!!!! He wrote the book on quitting in the playoffs. He will never win a stanley knife, let alone a stanley cup...
  7. Yeah, that's a nope from me. Thornton literally just got suspended for hitting a guy in the head during a blowout loss and then basically called the guy a wimp for getting hit in the head. I don't really care who wins anymore now that the Preds are golfing but I'm not about to start cheering for the Sharts just cause Joe Thornton has spent 20 years losing in the playoffs.

    Only time I'll root for the Sharks is if they make the finals. EVERYBODY hates the possibility of a California club winning another Cup.
  9. I agree that the Ducks might be a playoff team next year depending on what moves they make this offseason, Getzlaf being a 70 pt guy and Gibson being very good again. It also depends on what other teams in the West do. I don’t see them competing for the Cup or upsetting their way to one if they manage to get in though. Getzlaf’s injury history is creeping up and isn’t likely to improve at age 34. The fact that the Ducks still rely on him as much as they do isn’t very comforting. I think that it mainly comes down to how good do you think our prospects will end up being and whether they can carry the franchise going forward. I’m skeptical about that and hope our pool is better than projected.
  10. Look We know Dallas Eakins will be the New Head Coach.....Ducks need promote someone within their ranks. It won't surprise to us once Gulls season is done...Dallas is promoted. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  11. It would not surprise me If he decides to call it a career I mean Health and Family comes first...Also Ducks do not be surprise Ducks Draft a Center to ensure Center position is not weaken. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  12. Screw the Sharks.
  13. Epic Fail by Vegas should have finish off San Jose....Oh well we know San Jose is NEVER GOING TO win the Stanley Cup. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck

    Each year in the POs there is always a veteran story who never has won. Someone who has played for many years and has put up good numbers but has not won a cup. I know there are haters on this board who can’t see past the Ducks but this year it’s Big Joe who is that vet story. The guy has been an elite player for most of his career while also being a class act. He’s suffered defeat at the hands of the Ducks and also was soo close when the Sharks made the finals a couple years back but again were unable to pull it through. Hope he gets it this time. It would be great to see him carrying the cup for the first time. Love how they turned Vegas around, they probably thought it was in the bag LOL and don’t worry if it’s a SoCal rival. No one, NO ONE can top being the 1st Team in our State to get the cup. You can have 5 or 10 cups but none are historical as being the first one. We will always have that.
  15. Of the three, I think Kesler may be done. Goes on LTIR and we get some cap space. Perry will have a full summer to strengthen the knee, and I think he could surprise. Getz is Getz. Completely agree a new coach and the infusion of youth may have this team surprising a few people. Of course, I believe in Santa, the Easter bunny and I have a pet unicorn.
  16. According to 59.3, a crosscheck that results in injury (regardless of intent or how it got there) can get you a major and GM (59.5). Historically it has been called that way. Stastny's role was peripheral. Eakins's crosscheck was the root cause of the series of events, hence his being the penalty. It resulted in serious injury, hence it becoming a major and GM.
  17. It's only April. We're not going to hear anything until summer imo.
  18. Kadri needs to go. He's a solid two-way centre but there's only so many times you can have one player let your whole team down when it matters the most. They'd be better off moving on from a player who has thrown their entire gameplan into disarray for two playoffs in a row with his idiotic decisions on the ice. They have so much money tied up in guys like Nylander and Zaitsev and now they got a 94 point RFA to deal with. Even with Reilly having a 'Norris for offensive defencemen' type of year, that defence needs so much help. Muzzin is supposed to be a complementary piece, not the anchor. There's big changes coming for them and you can't help but feel like they might still be playing if they just addressed their problems instead of stubbornly holding onto a holdout in what was an already loaded position.
  19. The Oilers will respect the appropriate time to allow Kelly McCrimmon and the Vegas Golden Knights to sort through end of season procedure. However, request for permission to interview McCrimmon for Oilers gm job will happen in near future.
  20. What's the story with Kesler? Is he going to have another off-season surgery or will retire? The last time I heard GM Bob Murray was going to "have a difficult but necessary conversation" with him. Haven't heard anything since then.

    playoff game...

    This. Vegas and it’s infant fans have absolutely no business going deep in the POs. They need to learn a bit on what it is like to lose for a while before they can win. Get in line jokers.
  22. Not a fan of them but what a comeback!
  23. I'd also hand this one to the sharks. I even think this might be their year if you see who's already been eliminated. Not to take anything away from the remaining teams but looking at their roster and home ice they should be able to come out of the West. Then again you never now with martin jones aka 'getting 03 Jiggy with it' or 50 shades of dan cloutier'.
  24. Getzlaf, Perry & Kesler are getting there in age but we have a solid core in place. If Getz can stay healthy he's still very much a #1 Center. A new (good) coach will go a long way.

    playoff game...

    Cross check. Two minutes. However, that is a really bad series of unfortunate events for Pavelski. I didn't want the Sharks to win, but that's a helluva a rally when losing their Captain.
  26. Surprises can happen in the play offs. We went 10-6-1 in the last two months of the season and beat some play off teams during that stretch. By no means would I consider us a title contender had we snuck into the play offs, and it would not have surprised me had we got swept, but upsets do happen in the play offs like both top seeds getting knocked out this year. It's not always how you get to the play offs that matters. What matters is what you do once you get there. If our team hires the right coach and makes the right moves this off season (draft, free agency, trades), I think a return to the play offs next season is a possibility. Though whether that is in the team's best interest rather than committing to a rebuild is debatable. I'm a supporter of trying to stay competitive and make moves to maintain and improve competitiveness, but I can see the flip side that some of our fan base argue that we need to rebuild to replace our ageing core.

    playoff game...

    The good refs were working the other game (MacCauley/Sutherland). Who called the penalty? O'Halloran or Furlatt? I see more of an issue with Pavelski losing his balance. Don't remotely see an intent to injure. Not the first time a team gets jobbed by the officials.
