  1. I think what works big for Z is that he’s a very creative player. Creativity is what can carry over to the NHL to sustain success as he is capable of finding ways to adapt and improve due to his creativity. On the other hand many young players who are not as creative fail the transition to nhl due to the simple fact that they keep trying to do the same jr tricks for in the NHL that got them success growing up and are unable to adjust their game to work in the NHL. See Etem for example, all he continued to do was the same move up the side boards and shooting at the net prematurely. That may have worked wonders in hrs but you need to build your skill set and find other ways to fit in. He failed to learn and find creative ways to improve and adapt. Hope Z continues his progression.
  2. Fourth line energy center??? who is playing 1st, 2nd or..... 3rd.... Wonder if it was a matter of those players being better than he is?
  3. Yes. Exactly this. Thanks man. It was more of the latter option I bolded above which would eventually lead to getting another high pick anyway too. listen everyone I love Getz just as much as the next best fan. But if 1). He was ok with leaving and 2). It brought back the next big thing for this team then the question is would you do it. the post was never about me bagging on him but on the contrary saying that he still has the ability to go into beast mode and carry a team but for how long because this team is not going to be contending for a cup anytime soon and we would just be wasting him away. I’m a Ducks team fan first and if the return was for an incredible **young** player to fit in with the rest of the young team with it’s already talented **young** lineup then I would go for it. And given that Getz would make any team who is already a contender that much better then I bet the return would be great because Getz is still great. it would for sure be a bleak low time for the team for the short term reminiscent of the day we traded off Selanne but it could also potentially pay off big time. .... or not LOL But again the point was to get constructive feedback. There were some posts who brought up things I didn’t consider which is good in order to get a well rounded assessment
  4. True. I thought about that after posting
  5. It’s a’ight man. I know it’s a testy subject.
  6. Yeah because differing viewpoints or fans who are simply brainstorming should be censored. I’m sure the Chinese communists would love a fan board ran with your business model.
  7. For sure. Agreed. It would all depend on whether he would want to. He’s earned at least that much hands down. The question is if he was on board would it be the right decision for this org?
  8. So how many of you think it would be a good idea to trade Getz in order to attempt to get our next franchise player? Don’t get me wrong here he is AWESOME but this team is not going to win a cup anytime soon. And Bob won’t pick up a impact player via trade right now ((and shouldn’t really)) due to the Seattle draft implications. Getz still has it, he is still a very good “impact” player but we have no clear young player in the ranks who will replace him. Like many here also say, Gibson is not going to let us get a high pick either but somewhere outside a PO spot pick which won’t land us what we need to propel the future of this team. Other teams I suspect would pay a kings ransom for Getz at this point too. I think we have a good young core of players right now who need to mature a bit but will be important players for this organization moving forward. Also keeping mind with the Seattle draft being around the corner letting Getz go will allow us to keep another key young player too. What are all your thoughts? I know that some will respond with emotional outbursts but this move should be based on a logical decision not one based with nostalgia and heart. I myself wouldn’t mind if we do indeed get a great young player in return for him but also wouldn’t mind seeing him play out his time here either. I love Getz but I also want the best for this team “Make This Team Great Again”!
  9. Need a bonafide elite shut down defenseman. A defenseman who can change the pace of the game and setup plays out of our zone and have the ability to drop bombs from the circles. We have nice mid tier to bottom high tier d players but we need a no-nonsense D man who can take control of a game. We have not had a D player like that since Scotty or Pronger. We have pretty decent offensive actually I think but we can’t manage to keep the other team from scoring has much and so there is too much pressure on the goalies to continue making incredible stops. The kids are fine and doing good and it will be normal to see their progress go up and down a bit as they learn the new system and playing in the big leagues. We have a great young team in the making. We won’t be able to keep them all so maybe we can make a big trade down the road.

    Yeah I see what you’re saying but BM didn’t give an asset back worth much. If he did then I too would be asking to have Pens retain salary but in this case I could let it slide especially since BM needed this trade more than the Pens. Moving around so much doesn’t give much confidence but hopefully Eakins can slot him in and use him more effectively. In fact I think DLaw was showing some stats on another thread on how he was actually pretty good when paired with a certain Pen player. Maybe he can repost here to for discussion and yes we can’t go into any a year without BM having his little reclamation project either

    Figured a new Duck signing needed their own full fledged thread. My thoughts:: BM gave up nothing from our end for a player who is big and isn’t afraid to use his body and clear the net. We need that since we already have d players who can score enough already but lack in the other depts. Decent move but we gained is his cap hit of 4mill is very high. Hoping what every other team Before us who has traded for him which is that he actually performs up to or close to what he was initially drafted at (3rd overall).... let’s see if Eakins has a connection with him to turn him around what are your thoughts? Good trade or what?
  12. Trade Manson for Jim Tucker, isn’t this what the thread is about?
  13. I’ve done the research as I was also affected by Sling not having the Fox Sports contracts any longer and aside from getting regular cable or getting someone to let you share their account ....Hulu With Live TV is the best alternative for Sling though it is way more expensive. If you minus Hulu’s streaming content that leaves their live tv head-to-head with Sling more than $14 (Hulu =$39 vs Slings $25). Sling however is still negotiating the contract with The new owners of Fox Sports and hopefully they don’t raise it too much. So keep an eye out in the news every 2 weeks to a month For those one off games that are on channel 13 or KDOC look up Locast.org it is free to stream some live local tv channels on your phone. The streams look great too! They also have an app.
  14. Kase should do great under Eakins system. 30+ goals
