    playoff game...

    How about a simple rule change. All plays can be reviewed for missed calls?

    And just like that, Martin Jones becomes Martin Jones again.
  4. I’m sorry, but what over the last few years gives you confidence that a big move is coming? Not trying to difficult, do you really see GMBM packaging the two firsts, Richie and a prospect to move up in the draft? I don’t. This was close to the worst possible result for the team. No need to sugar coat it.
  5. I guess we can be still be proud of the fact that the team has never had the first overall draft pick in their existence. That says something (although with the lottery, a little less) about the organization’s play over the years. It is likely that the 9th player selected is several years away from contributing in any meaningful way.
  6. I know that. I was commenting that because of the meaningless wins at the end of the year, the later round picks are lower than they could have been.
  7. Meaningless goals in meaningless games. Not only are they now picking 9th, their selection in the subsequent rounds are lower than they should have been. This was not the 8th or 9th worst team in the league. They were worse than that.
  8. Officially the worst season in the history of the team.
  9. I would have much preferred them to tank. Not only would it potentially lead to the first or second pick, it would have raised the picks in the other rounds. Winning games at the end of the year is all an illusion. Playoff secured teams resting players, other non-playoff teams playing out the string. The Ducks really have not played a team fighting for their playoff lives in a few weeks.
  10. Just to be clear, When I say closer to the AHL than to NHL All-Star, I mean they appear to be interchangeable NHL players. Nothing stands-out. The fact that they iced players like Gibbons, Rowney, Holzer, etc. means that the pipeline may not be as full as many of us thought.
  11. As the year draws to a close, the one thing that concerns me the most is the fact that we have been talking about the pipeline of players in San Diego for several years, and yet no one really stood out when given their shot in the NHL. Not saying that a few were not solid, but none of them took the opportunity and ran with it. Perhaps we will see more out of Steel, Terry and some others, but for now they all seem closer to the AHL than to an NHL all-star team. Should BM be more willing to include these guys in trades? Or perhaps we overrate their potential and there isn’t as much interest in them from other teams as we think?
  12. Never like it when the GM takes over. Means he has no plans and is just reacting. Saw it in Atlanta twice with Waddell taking over.
  13. Meanwhile, while we were all sure that RC was the next head coach to be canned, the team’s results (notice I did not say performance) the last few weeks has probably moved him into the early coach of the year discussion.
  14. I am no on any of the retread coaches. I would prefer going the Dave Quinn route like the Rangers. Really shake things up.
  15. Hard pass from me. I view him as an average coach who stumbled into a situation where he had Kane, Toews, Hossa, Keith, etc. I don’t see him as someone to develop this current Ducks team.
