  1. Bottom line is we've taken away any chance of finishing lower than 5th worst, but have a very real chance of finishing as high as 10th.
  2. Ottawa, Detroit & L.A. are close to being out of reach. With the improved play, there's a risk that we're going to move up and catch one or more of the teams within 4 points of us, rather than get caught by New Jersey who are currently have 4th worst record.
  3. Well, I was opposed to the Cogliano trade, but in hindsight, look how much improved the team is without him. Clearly he was a big part of the problem this season, and we're playing so much better since Shore arrived. Bob Murray truly is a genius. Sorry for the sarcasm. I wish Cogs well in Dallas. I think he lost some of his mojo when they made him change from #7, hence the injury.
  4. Well, the radio announcers said that the team WON'T give up until they are officially eliminated, and that it is so completely wrong to suggest they should lose games, just to get a better chance at the pick. Bless their hearts. If the Ducks win their last 16 games, they'll be at 91 points, so they still control their own destiny. It wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, and it ain't over now.
  5. It is going to be tough, if not impossible, to fall below Ottawa. Those remaining games against the Kings are going to be key. Hard to admit, but whomever is the loser in those games, really could end up the winner in terms of getting a higher pick.
  6. All Murray's fault for trading him. Sorry the Ducks screwed you over after all the years of loyalty Cogs.
  7. When was the last time both So Cal teams were well out of the playoffs with over a month remaining?
  8. If that's the case, and they're giving him the option of staying now, they should sign him to an Extension now. This essentially gives him leverage, since he will become UFA, and may end up costing us more to re-sign. I didn't realize he had a 6 team list. I guess San Jose is not one of them, kind of surprising since they're a CA team.
  9. Gave him the option? So neither of the 2 trades that seemed like no brainers, Silfverberg & Miller, will happen now? Way to plan for the future.
  10. Aren't Gibson & Johnson back in Anaheim? If the Ducks trade Miller, who is going to backup Boyle?
  11. Yet there are teams that would gladly trade for him, so perhaps he is a good value. And didn't ol' Pancakes win another couple of Stanley Cups with the Kings after he left? Even the worst player on a Cup team, is usually pretty good, so I doubt the Kings would say he got overpaid.
  12. He would have been able to field offers from any team in the league on July 1, including the one who traded for him. His playoff production might have only increased his value, and the Ducks would not have been able to re-sign him. Obviously they did not want to take that chance with him. It sounds like they do feel comfortable doing it with Miller though, and perhaps we'll see him return.
  13. Per @PierreVLeBrun, the Ducks and Jakob Silfverberg have "essentially" come to an agreement on a five-year contract extension. They can't make the official announcement for a bit because of salary-cap tagging issues.
  14. Scottie came here to play with his brother. Otherwise, it's unlikely he would have. And Brian Burke was the GM, not Murray. Plus there were new owners, who were eager to spend some money to put a high quality team on the ice, and pursue the Cup. None of that applies here, and if Silfverberg had left, he would have been replaced with another mid-level FA. There is way more discussion on the boards each June about who to go after, than there likely is within Ducks management.
  15. I think Getzlaf will retire a Duck, playing his entire career with the club. Just my opinion.
