  1. Someone needs to explain the 7 year, 70 million contract for Bobrovsky to Florida. I though they just drafted their goalie of the future in the first round. Yes, he’s young. But you should expect him on the big club in 3 or 4 years.
  2. I have to wonder if this is some sort of advanced analytics move, because on the surface, it seems to be unnecessary. Players like Deslauriers can be had for far less (or even on waivers). Basically just moving pieces around. I can’t recall the last time one of these types of moves paid any real dividends.
  3. Anyone else surprised that the Ducks made no trades, etc. during the draft? Same old, same old

    If nothing else, it points to the importance of qualifying for the offseason. Unlike other recent champs, I can’t think any GM is devising ways of replicating St Louis.

    Far too many upsets for my taste. In the end, do you think this is the best team? I don’t. I have to wonder if this is the best thing for hockey.

    Thankfully this travesty of a post season is ending. Does anyone truly believe that St Louis is the best team in the league or that Boston was the second best? A hobbled Ducks team would have been competitive vs either of them. Do we really think that the current playoff format is the best thing for hockey? Perhaps we should consider changing back to 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7 etc. Or changing the first round to a best of 5 with 4 games at the team with the best record.

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

    And just like that, Martin Jones becomes Martin Jones again.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Officially the worst season in the history of the team.
  15. 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.
