  1. I’m personally excited for this season. I think fan frustration had as much, if not more, to do with RC. It was pretty evident to most that his system wasn’t working and it was frustrating the players. A few made subtle comments after RC left, specifically the defense.
  2. Agree. Signing a one-way contract guarantees him that salary whether he plays in San Diego or Anaheim.
  3. He wouldn’t be the first 27 year old to sign to play in the AHL.
  4. During the introduction press conference, Kevin Dineen stated the rest of the Gulls coaching staff will return. #LetsGoGulls
  5. NEWS: @AnaheimDucks hire Kevin Dineen as the next head coach of the @SDGullsAHL. Dineen becomes the 2nd head coach in franchise history. 📝→ bit.ly/2JASKJ5 #LetsGoGulls
  6. With a large number of young wingers and recent two-way acquisitions this summer, the writing could be on the wall for winger Nick Ritchie, who still has two years remaining at a very reasonable $1.49MM. The 23-year-old hasn’t developed into the scoring power forward the team hoped for when they drafted him 10th overall in 2014 and he might be a perfect trade candidate, according to Eric Stephens of The Athletic(subscription required). Ritchie will have to fight for one of the left wing openings or he could find himself on a new team shortly.
  7. In a mailbag piece, The Athletic’s Eric Stephens (subscription required) writes that while defenseman Hampus Lindholm is a solid top-pairing defenseman, his offense still hasn’t come around and at age 25, time is running out. The blueliner posted 34 points in his second season back in the 2014-15 season and hasn’t reached that target since then. However, Stephens writes that Lindholm was never a big fan of Randy Carlyle’s system and could thrive under new head coach Dallas Eakins and show off some more offense, potentially becoming a regular at 40 points.
  8. CapFriendly‏ @CapFriendly FollowingFollowing @CapFriendly MoChase De Leo and the Anaheim #Ducks avoid Arbitration and agree on a 1 year/2-way contract. NHL: $750,000 Minor: $100,000 ($130,000 gtee) De Leo will be an RFA with Arb rights again next summer when his new deal expires.
  9. Interesting that he isn't on the Ducks' 2019-2020 roster.
  10. Thanks for the info. I somehow missed the shoulder surgery and thought he was out with a concussion.
  11. Interesting that Kase is still listed on IR.
  12. Eric Stephens‏Verified account @icemancometh FollowingFollowing @icemancometh More Chase De Leo is the only Ducks player that has filed for salary arbitration. Justin Kloos was eligible but did not do so. Otherwise, should be a relatively quiet summer as far as contracts for current organizational players.
  13. Not sure if this is a Gulls or Dicks signing since both are short on D. EDIT: Jani Hakanpaa's deal with #NHLDucks is one-way for $850,000 in 2019-20. Hakanpaa, 27 (3/31/92), earned 25-56=81 points with a +76 rating in 298 career Finnish Elite League (Liiga) games with Karpat and Espoo. The 6-5, 207-pound defenseman led Finnish Elite League defensemen in plus/minus in back-to-back seasons in 2018-19 (+29) and 2017-18 (+28). Hakanpaa was a member of the 2017-18 Karpat team that won the Finnish Elite League postseason championship. Last season, Hakanpaa collected 11-12=23 points with 94 penalty minutes (PIM) in 52 games with Karpat, ranking tied for second among Liiga defensemen in goals. He also appeared in 17 playoff games, registering 1-3=4 points with a +9 rating. Selected by St. Louis in the fourth round (104th overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft, Hakanpaa recorded 6-14=20 points with a +20 rating and 86 PIM in 132 career AHL games with Peoria and Chicago from 2012-15. A native of Kirkkonummi, Finland, Hakanpaa helped his country’s national team to a gold medal at the 2019 World Championship. He also won bronze with Team Finland at the 2010 Under-18 World Championship, earning 1-1=2 points with a +3 rating in six tournament games.
