    Lottery

    Thing is.. Ducks need forwards who can score goals at this point.

    Lottery

    Tell me this isn't rigged. My money is on Montreal snagging the number one pick now. F this lottery system and F the Kings.
  3. I was never a Gibson "hater" but I always thought Freddie Andersen was the better pick. My biggest concern with Gibson was his durability. In his first couple of seasons he seemed to have issues moving post to post. Several teams picked up on that issue and repeatedly exploited it.He also was weak on breakaways and I rarely saw him steal a game. Over the last two seasons I've had nothing but respect for his performance. He's done more than his share to try and keep the team in games.He has had neither defensive nor offensive support from the team in front of him.
  4. Once this thing gets into the homeless population it is going to get really ugly. Those people already have compromised immune systems due to living outside, addiction issues etc. And they are the last people that want to be told what to do so they will run from authorities even if they are trying to help.The most vulnerable are the elderly. Some recent stats. AGE DEATH RATE confirmed cases DEATH RATE all cases 80+ years old 21.9% 14.8% 70-79 years old 8.0% 60-69 years old 3.6% 50-59 years old 1.3% 40-49 years old 0.4% 30-39 years old 0.2% 20-29 years old 0.2% 10-19 years old 0.2% 0-9 years old no fatalities
  5. This report is disturbing at the very least. https://www.foxnews.com/health/coronavirus-live-plastic-stainless-steel-for-up-to-3-days
  6. Any chance Murray is shopping Fowler? He didn't play last night and is "doubtful" for the weekend. Or is he just injured?
  7. My Buddy and I were discussing the Kase trade last night and I wondered how having Backes will effect the Seattle ED situation. He had a NTC in Boston, is that still in effect? Do the Ducks need to protect him regardless because of his age? Most of the younger players are first year players and exempt from the draft. Which forwards get protected now? Which ones are most vulnerable?
  8. I've been watching the Hockey Guy more and More lately. At first I didn't like him, but after giving him a a chance I've come to enjoy his videos. Whether he is right or wrong in his insight at times I appreciate his passion.
  9. Don't do it Bob.... I swear....DON'T DO IT!!!
  10. I think it was more likely that nobody wanted to pay the asking price for Quick. I have not really followed the Kings this year but from what I have heard in commentary regarding this trade the Kings have another prospect waiting in the wings they think will be better than Cambell and they needed to make room one way or another. As far as Clifford goes, my fondest memory of him is when Sheldon Brookbank rang his bell. I can still see the slow motion replay in my mind's eye.
  11. Kings trade Cambell and Clifford to Toronto for Trevor Moore , a 3rd round pick in 2020 and a 3rd round pick in 2021.
  12. I believed it was a lazy choice by GMBM to hire Eakin. Felt like there were other more qualified coaches available. In my opinion Murray wanted a coach who would not challenge him. I just don't believe Eakins has the chops for coaching at the NHL level.
  13. Canadian fans are googling whether or not Gallant speaks French.
  14. There must be some behind the scene issues going on. The teams current situation does not warrant this sort of change. And like Jasoaks questioned, why Deboer when Laviolette is available. Very werd.
  15. What makes this rebuild even more painful is that there is no "heir apparent" to become the face of the franchise.Which means even when GMBM tries to trade for or sign established star players none of them want to come to Anaheim.Justin Fualk being the most recent example. Back during the Cup run and years immediately afterwards players wanted to come here because they saw the Ducks as a contender and boasted HOF players Niedemeyer, Pronger, and Selanne. During the 09-10 season when the team traded for Wiznewski he was very excited to be on the team so he could play with #27. When Scott Niedemeyer suddenly announce his retirement over the following summer, suddenly Wiznewski didn't want to be here. Unless the Samuelli's decide they want another cup and make aggressive moves after the upcoming Seattle draft(i.e. spend some money, hire a new GM, hire a real coach) the Ducks are going to be a bottom feeding AHL level team for the foreseeable future.
