  1. Eric Stephens‏Verified account @icemancometh Bob Murray said Patrick Eaves has been experiencing some of the similar muscle weakness issues that affected him the start of last season. Hasn't played with Gulls for last while and not with them now.
  2. Eric Stephens‏Verified account @icemancometh More GMBM also said he'll meet with Ryan Kesler and doctors tonight. Has been talking with his agent. Certainly sure that shutting him down for remainder of year (which is likely) and whether he can play beyond will be among discussion points.
  3. Eric Stephens‏Verified account @icemancometh FollowingFollowing @icemancometh More Brendan Guhle has oblique injury but GMBM believes he'll be able to play again this year, whether for Ducks or Gulls. Chad Johnson (upper body) is working out again. Jacob Larsson (Charley horse) coming along but doesn't have full range of motion, may skate early next week.
  4. Quote from Gibson after the Florida game: John Gibson On staying calm in net Just playing my game, I'm happy to be back and playing and just trying to have fun with it and help the team win some games. On the team's improved play after his return from injury It seems that we have a different mentality. We just needed to change the atmosphere, it's a little more upbeat and it just seems that we are playing more of a team game. I think the biggest thing I've noticed is our compete level, whether we are winning or losing. I thought even the other night in Arizona we were down and we still fought to the end
  5. Per Sportsnet, with last night’s loss, the Kings are officially eliminated from playoff contention.
  6. Sheldon Souray signed a 3 year $11M contract with Anaheim. He played 44 games and suffered an off-season injury and never played again. He retired after his contract expired, 2 years later. Expecting BM to try to convince Kesler to retire would be disrespectful to a guy who gave everything he had for this team, including playing injured until he no longer could.
  7. BM mentioned that he isn't YELLING at the players. I think, for the young guys, that has made a difference. I'm not saying they should be coddled, but I do think that RC may have been taking out his frustrations on the players when he was part of the problem.
  8. He isn't coaching now; he's observing. His assistants are doing the coaching.
  9. https://www.ocregister.com/2019/03/15/ducks-say-ryan-kesler-could-be-done-for-the-season/ West Notes: Kesler, Mitchell, Canucks MARCH 15, 2019 AT 3:38 PM CDT | BY GAVIN LEE 2 COMMENTS The Anaheim Ducks are well out of the playoff race in the Western Conference, meaning they don’t need to rush players back from injury for the last bit of the season. That could mean that Ryan Kesler’s year is finished after 60 games, given his chronic hip pain and absence recently. GM Bob Murray told Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register that he doesn’t know if Kesler will play again this season, and that if Kesler were willing to shut down for the year and start the recovery process it “would be fine.” The veteran center broke the 1000-game threshold just this month, but is a shadow of his former self and has just eight points on the season. The 34-year old has three more years on his contract but seems like a candidate for long-term injured reserve at some point in the future, if his hip injury doesn’t improve.
  10. Which is why BM made the statement. He missed the cutoff by a few months.
  11. One of the things BM mentioned was regretting having to send Comtois to juniors. He wasn’t quite ready to make the NHL roster, but I believe he would have been spending time on the freeway between Anaheim and San Diego if he stayed; if not permanently in Anaheim these last few months.
  12. Agree. But I would like to add that on social media, Reilly was being slammed and assumed guilty without proof. All it took was an accusation that he said something.
  13. https://twitter.com/theflintor/status/1105358472567091200?s=21 @flintor Some excerpts from Ken Dryden's book "Game Change: The Life and Death of Steve Montador, and the Future of Hockey"
  14. @PR_NHL The NHL is aware of reports that a homophobic slur was used during the Maple Leafs-Lightning game. The League is investigating the incident and will have no further comment until this investigation is completed.
