  1. Do you guys think EVPIHCGMBM is a seller at the trade deadline?
    If so, who do you think goes?

    Not a whole lot of easily moved pieces and the guy I figured would be moved, Cogs, is long gone.

    Speaking of which, I have not had much time to look in on Star's games. How's Andrew looking?

    If you believe both bolded statements are true, then the only way to really embrace the tank would be to get rid of talent. Its actually really hard to tank a talented roster (props to RC for figuring out a way!), so the logical question becomes: Who should GMHCBM get rid of to make the roster a lot less talented for the tanking effort?




    Is this a trick question?

  3. I have a feeling that after tonight's game, IHCGMBM will promote one of the assistant coaches to take the reigns for the rest of the season.
    It won't take him long to realize while standing there amongst the snot rockets and puddles of spit on the floor of the bench that life was much better (and def less gross) in the confines of his cozy luxury suite.

  4. So wait...is HCGMBM on the ice running practice in a sweatsuit and baseball cap?
    Pics please.

    Is anybody but me thinking how weird it is going to be for the players having BM behind the bench tapping the fellas on the shoulder?
    Must see TV.

    It's all about momentum.  If the Ducks are inspired with the return of Perry, Eaves, and Silferberg, and win tomorrows game--and then can defeat Toronto with a follow-up win, I can see them doing well this road trip. And I think they will play inspired tomorrow night, and get the win. We shall see.  GO DUCKS!

    Not seeing much of a future in sports prognostications in your immediate future.

    Leafs just traded for Muzzin...soooo they got their D I would say...or they probably think they got the guy they needed on the blue line.

    Leafs overpaid.

    Los Angeles gets forward Carl Grundstrom and the rights to unsigned defenseman Sean Durzi in the deal, along with a first-round pick in 2019.

    Honestly I don't think we will see Fowler, Lindholm or Manson moved. They are our 'big 3' if you will, even though none of them have played particularly well this year (fire carlyle).

    Montour would be the one to go if anyone, but I think that hits our defensive depth too hard as guys like Larsson, Mahura etc. aren't really ready for more minutes.

    LMFAO Well played, Nieder.

    Maybe we should just trade him to St. Louis it makes the only logical sense for his name

    Oh that is good.

    If he played in St Louis, he would be the Blues Kloos.

    We are Kloos from 13 losses. Why was this trade done ? I have no Kloos. 

    *sad tuba*

    ps: I'm sure I have at least 1 good phonetic joke there.

    I think Henry Samueli, out of frustration, told Bob Murray that he had no clue.
    Bm fixed that in 1 phone call to Minnesota.

    Pontus Aberg will sit for a fourth straight game. Asked RC what he saw in his last outings and what he needs to do to get back in. "Overall compete level in the game has to go up." Knows he has skill and can score but wants him to get more inside, on forecheck, backcheck.


    Aberg has been on the perimeter too often, too, per RC.

    Yeah, good thing that slacker is out of the lineup. You could see the instant positive results of having that cherry picker sit in the press

    box, munching popcorn while his teammates went out and showed him how it's done.

    Dude is probably sitting up there thinking......."Lol. I can't play on this team?"


    On a serious note......I think I am ready to get on the fire Carlyle train. He has clearly lost the team and benching your leading goal scorer when your team

    is badly struggling to score goals is truly pathetic.

    I could see sitting Aberg for a game to send a message but 4 straight games?

    Morale at an all time low. Trade away a locker room/fan favovrite.

    That's supposed to kick start the youth who are probably the most demoralized by this or is it the under performing guys with NMCs this is a warning too?

    Ugh. Sorry ladies and gents. I'm really bitter about this whole situation.

    I posted this about 2 months ago in the midst of the 7 game losing streak.
    When things are going bad, teams will either fire the coach or trade a popular player in the locker room in order to get the team's attention.
    The Ducks chose to make the trade and keep the coach for the time being.

    Yes. Or, if it hurts his ego , let him sit a few weeks due to "lower body injury".

    Lol I was actually answering, in the shortest way possible, the OP's question of whether or not Kesler was healthy.

    Not disagreeing with you.

    Just wait and he WILL get hurt - just as Perry comes back. That has been our LUCK ( bad ) for the last several years !!!

    Perry is not going to save this team anyway.

    Badly in need of a 2nd line center and a pillar on defense.....among other things.

    We had Perry last year as I recall and this year's version will be out of game condition, another year older, recovering from major knee surgery Perry.

    Does anyone else here wish Gibson would skip the All Star game? Makes me nervous. Perhaps a mystery lower body injury will occur in the game prior to the break.

    Kings being out shot 27-8 and under siege by Vegas.  Goaltender is great.  Vegas is all pressure.  Pretty hard to play against I'll bet.

    Oh and they are 14-3 since November...

    Must be nice to have a good coach...

    Getting harder to root against the Kings these days.

    You don't want them winning but then again, you also don't want anywhere near a chance at drafting Hughes.
    What to do...what to do.
    I think missing the playoffs by 1 point would be the ultimate end result IMO.

     It really NHL but Holzer’s response is epic. 

    The new Late Hit Rule (#153) was introduced for this season. This video from the IIHF Player Safety Committee provides information and examples how it will be enforced. Find more information here: iihf.com/en/news/8470/v…

    @Korbi_Holzer There's no way you guys are serious with that, right?!? Especially the first example for the 2min minor🤔😂 Might as well start a new sport...flag hockey🤷‍♂️

    Korbi just earned a new follower.

    hahaha yes...it would need to have a line name...as the Ducks broadcasters were just talking about...

    The A**holes

    The Katella Bullies

    The Katella Killers

    The PIM Line (ugh! if only Kesler's name started with an I somewhere...)

    The Pesky Line

    The "Nasty Boys."

    I know we all hate Tkachuk, as we should.  But how good would he look in this forward group?  It also would go a long way to reestablishing that tough-to-play-against team identity that has been missing for several years.  I would trade Sam Steel and Max Comtois and a second round pick for Tkachuk right now, which is essentially the trade we'd be making in retrospect.  Think of Tkachuk in that conference finals against Nashville after Eaves went down. It seems like Murray could fill a trophy case with great trades he almost made.


    Lol I don't hate Tkachuk. Matter of fact, I love watching him play (not quite as much when he plays the Ducks). I guess that's a direct result of defending players like Perry and Kesler for the last so many years.

    Oh man, if I was coaching the Ducks, I would throw out a line with the three of them. How fun would that be?

    I'm still convinced Cogs was suspended specifically to break his streak. He had just signed that extension  and it was all over the hockey press that Cogs would set a new iron man record within the time frame of the extension. Someone didn't like the idea of the record being held by a player from the Ducks. They saw Cog's hit and used it to kill his streak. Otherwise  Cogs' suspension makes no sense.

    1) There was no injury on the play.

    2) Cogliano had zero history of supplemental discipline.

    3) a few days prior Dustin Brown was only handed a fine after a  much more vicious hit. A player who has an established history of supplemental hearings. If I recall there was another player who was treated with kid gloves who was also a repeat offender within days of Cog's incident.

    Cynical but not unwarranted.
    I certainly think that a guy with ZERO previous history of dirty play, and no serious injury incurred by Kempe, should have put Cogs in consideration for a monetary fine only.
