    Lose for Kloos. Right idea......wrong player.

    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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Korbi just earned a new follower.
  8. Reaves semi-late hit on Tom Wilson last night was a thing of beauty. Online right now looking for a Reaves jersey.
  9. 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?
  10. Thoughts on the Josh Morrissey WWE move on TJ Oshie? DOPS just handed down a fine and no suspension on Josh. SMH Cogs would have got 20 games minimum for that non-hockey style play.

    Cogs status

    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.
  12. Although I never expected them to be last in the league, I never understood the high expectations which were being placed on the Kings this season. Kopitar and Brown had amazing seasons last year and the chance of both of them repeating those performance were slim and none. J Quick showing signs of wear was definitely an issue as well. As I has said in another post.....when a team is under-performing the logical thing to do is 1) trade a well liked player to get the team's attention 2) change coaches. The Kings have now done both. Stay tuned.
  13. Newsflash: Many have stopped coming to games. Not too many transplants here from Tennessee. My guess is maybe 70% capacity tonight.
  14. It's not my money so I say "heck ya, let's do it." Anything is better than the current situation. But the Ducks would still be obliged to pay RC for the remainder of the season. Not so sure the Samuellis would want to go there.
  15. I stand corrected. So RC is basically making double what Bruce was making with the Ducks? SMH
  16. Whoa, wait a second. Are you telling me that RC is making 4 mil a year? I honestly have no idea what he is making but assumed it was around 2 mil. Where did you find his salary? I googled to no avail.
  17. Not a chance. He'll never get out of his contract for hosting the immortal "Between The Zambonis" hit TV show. Kes stays!
  18. I can think of 6 million reasons why the Ducks will never even think about signing Coach Q. Aim lower ciz it ain't EVER gonna happen.
  19. The Ducks have added that to the hockey repertoire as in "the Ducks play in the defensive zone is extremely loose." Thus, they are not only losing games but loosing them as well? That's the best I got.
  20. It's not very often that I would call for a coach to be released during a season because 9 times out of 10 it is a player effort issue more than an X's and O's issue. That said, it has become painfully obvious that the players are not even close to selling out for this coach any longer and you can do one of two things at this point. 1) send a message by trading a player who is popular in the room 2) release the coach and wish him luck One of the two will be happening within a week is my guess. Tough next 3 games. Well, they're all tough for this group but the next 3 are especially tough.
  21. If you were coaching Toews, Kane, Seabrook, Keith and Hossa in their prime, you'd have a ring or 2 yourself, Nieder. Just sayin.
  22. Lol good job fighting the good fight, Zman. DB is a jackass. I recall hearing him a few weeks ago saying he thought the Pacific would be The Sharks, Flames and Kings. Now, I don't mind that he left out the Ducks cuz I do not have a strong feeling on them this year, but The Kings? Isn't this the same team that got swept last year? Is Kovalchuk really going to be the piece that gets them over the top? C'mon!
