  1. Past hour
  2. some times you must make a rebuild... you can't be every year in the playoffs!!! and better give the young players ice time in the NHL then a Deslauriers, Martinsen ect. in 5-10 years (some of this players have star-potential) you can say, hey I saw this player since he started in the NHL, I saw they grown up.... I don't understand why some people here always wants playoffs, playoffs, playoffs....you can't always win! its an other think if you team is only bad... we have some potential players, it will be fun to watch the next years, how they grow up, they are leader of the team in the future! I hope we will play with 5-6 prospects... Zegras/Comtois think we will have a lot of fun with duo... a fan is also there in weak years! not only with good weather...
  3. Today
  4. I for one am not excited to see a Duck's team where 50% of the players are Gulls bouncing back and forth between the NHL and AHL. If I'm going to spend hard earned money to go to a game I want to watch an NHL team that is capable of making the playoffs and not full of prospects. One or two rookies on the squad? Fine. Six to ten? NO THANKS.
  5. Why it should be a frustrated season this season? We should see a lot of talents with Kase, Terry, Steel, Jones, Comtois, Lundeström and maybe Zegras at the end of the season. So I love to see hove they grow up and make steps forward.
  6. I’m personally excited for this season. I think fan frustration had as much, if not more, to do with RC. It was pretty evident to most that his system wasn’t working and it was frustrating the players. A few made subtle comments after RC left, specifically the defense.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Interesting very Interestin thank you for the Info....very interesting. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  9. we seem to have 4 year cycles...
  10. It's unfortunate but it's nature of the sport...Ducks know they cannot go on as they are...mistakes were made and Ducks especially GM Bob Murray is trying to correct it. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  11. I think the team could definitely face attendance issues and financial woes due to a lower revenue stream. They're rebuilding with youth, so they may not need to fork over big contracts for the next 4-5 years, but I think it could definitely catch up with them in the long run in terms of attracting UFAs or re-signing their own RFAs. The timing of the rebuild is also a bit unfortunate. The Ducks already get bumped from radio for Angels pre-season games in the spring when they're in the home stretch fighting for the playoffs, and with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George coming to the Clippers, you have to wonder if they'll be bounced from Fox Sports TV broadcasts this coming season as well. As a San Diegan, I'm already worried that Fox Sports San Diego will be choosing to show the Clippers over the Ducks since both of those are considered FSSD teams, and that the Ducks will be stuck on KCAL for more broadcasts (which we don't get down here). If the Clippers are good and become a trendy ticket, I also think they could eat into the Ducks attendance, especially if the Ducks play poor or even middle-of-the-road hockey.
  12. I don't think Kase will be on LTIR. He had his shoulder surgery January 30th and the recovery period was stated as 5-6 months. Even if there's a setback in his recovery, you would still expect him to be ready by the start of the season. And speaking of Kase, there was a decent article on him by The Hockey Writers last week here: https://thehockeywriters.com/kase-ducks-2019-20-x-factor/. A sampling... That aside, you're right, that's a lot of cap space. Wonder if ownership is making GMBM stay low this season to make up for the Perry buyout.
  13. Hey at least it got your attention there. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  14. Oh goodness gracious. I initially read that as Dennis Wideman and flipped out. By the time I calmed down and went to Capfriendly I figured out it was a different person. That was a pleasant panic attack.
  15. not forget for the next season (2020-2021) Perry's buyout jump to 6 Mio... so its okay when we have some space...
  16. But had GMBM pulled that trade off at the deadline rather than at the draft after playoffs, as the rumor was, we may have won the cup that year. Or at the very least got to the finals.
  17. I couldn't stand the other formatting, so here's the data again. You can see we spent a lot starting in 16-17. Season CapHit CapSpace 11-12 55,170,251 9,129,749 12-13 67,064,166 3,135,834 13-14 64,127,746 172,254 14-15 63,051,307 4,798,693 15-16 63,192,523 8,207,477 16-17 73,254,459 -254,459 17-18 74,675,365 324,635 18-19 76,192,046 3,307,954 19-20 72,999,758 8,500,242
  18. Just for fun, here's the listed cap hits and cap space for the ducks by season from 11-12, as reported by: https://www.spotrac.com/nhl/cap/ (i have no idea when they stick the cap stats, my guess is near the end of the season, except for the current season) (adjusted the formatting see below)
  19. It's Positive one for the Ducks and Good Move in getting Kevin back...Welcome Back Kevin Dineen. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  20. Or we could see Ducks give a Journeyman a 2nd chance...remember George Parros. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  21. fixed that for you. when was the last time we entered training camp with $8.5M in cap space (not counting an additional LTIR option of about $13M attributable to Eaves, Kesler, and Kase)?
  22. Last week
  23. So with the Wideman and Kloos signings yesterday, the Ducks are almost to the 50 contract limit with 48 contracts on the books (technically only 47 if Dostal goes back to Europe this coming season). 47/48 contracts is typically where we end up at the start of training camp, so I think its unlikely that GMBM signs anymore players to NHL SPCs at this point, and that the rest of the Gulls roster will be filled out with AHL-only contracts. So barring a trade, looks like our 2019-2020 Ducks roster is set, with just position battles remaining to determine who makes the Ducks lineup and who gets an Amtrak ticket. As much as I'm disappointed with GMBM's lack of moves for the big club (cough#4Dcough), I do have to say that the Gulls could be really good again this season, even with Terry, Steel, and possibly others moving up. Between Comtois, Lundestrom, and Morand graduating to the AHL (possibly more) and bringing in Poturalski and Wideman, the Gulls should be able to maintain what they had going last season talent-wise. I'm excited to get Dineen behind the bench too. Could be a really fun season in San Diego.
  24. Not only that he is longest serving Duck on the team....he has served long then Kariya,Ryan,Lupul and few other Ducks who were drafted and played this long. DuckPride 4ever MooseDuck
  25. i didn't know you could play for 5 different teams (3 different NHL teams) in one season: https://www.capfriendly.com/players/chris-wideman
  26. Agree. Signing a one-way contract guarantees him that salary whether he plays in San Diego or Anaheim.
  27. He wouldn’t be the first 27 year old to sign to play in the AHL.
  28. Chris Wideman signed one-year two-way with the Ducks, 700k... here is your RHD..... a Journeyman... last season 3 teams... never a good sign...
  29. Very cool. I wonder what it will be like once Perry and Getzlaf go against each other. I am REALLY hoping they don't end up in a fight. That sometimes happens with former teammates/great friends. Try to prove they are better than the other. Let's hope things remain civil between them.
