  1. I dunno, he was decent last year, but that contract had regret written all over it.

    only one thing... Sculpins
  5. I can understand Bells leaving, even if it was for less money. I don't know about the whole stability thing though. So he wanted reassurance that he wouldn't have to uproot his life via a NTC after a year or two so he goes and uproots his life anyway by moving to Boston for only a two year guarantee that he won't have to do it again? That doen't make sense too me. Regardless I'm siding with BM here everytime. Bells is not the type of player that you want to be spending 3.8-4mil dollars on per year and NTC's are not to be handed out lightly. We have more important people to pay in the near future and Bells won't be hard to replace. ( we already did with Hags) I wish him the best in Boston and I hope his goal scoring touch wasn't a one off. He's a great guy, and we will all miss him here in Anaheim.
  6. Tor is my bet. Seems like the level of stupid they would do.
  7. BM and the scouting staff don't get a pass because Burke was in charge. You're also leaving a ton of names off your list here. top 6 forwards ( in the 1st two rounds since 06 not counting picks 1-14) 2006: Chris Stewart , Giroux, Foligno, Lucic 2007: Pacioretty, Perron, Simmonds 2008: Eberle, Stephan 2009: Krieder, Johansson, O'Reilly, Silverberg, Tatar 2010: Taresenko, Bjugstad, Kevin Hayes ( not quite but will be), Brock Nelson ( same), Toffoli we are getting a little premature from this point on imo,but there are still a few guys emerging in the range Im talking about. I expect more will emerge in the next few years. 2011: Saad, 2012: Hertl , Teravinen( to early but looks really good) , Pearson( definitely to early to tell but kid looks good) It is very hit and miss to find a top 6 forward after the top 10-12 picks like you say, but the Ducks so far have yet to hit at all. And if we are to use the range you imposed here, even if Ritchie becomes a top 6 guy like he supposed to, he wouldn't count being the # 10 pick.
  8. I was talking about Logan McMillan. 19th overall pick. And yes Holland was a bust. Etem appears to be in the same trajectory. I wouldn't call palms or Dsp busts. 9 years worth of drafting and not a single guy so far has even turned into a 2nd liner. Obviously way to early to tell on Ritchie and Kerdilles. Also maybe Palms gets there. But overall I'd say that's pretty poor. Your standards are too low.
  9. Draft position plays a part in this sure, but they haven't been very good with their forward selections in the upper half of the draft. The 13 forwards drafted by the Ducks in the 1st two rounds since 06 in no particular order. Holland - Bust McMillian--Bust Etem -- looks like a bust Palms -- to early to tell, may become a decent( yet one dimensional) 2nd liner.. Rakell - decent shot at becoming a top 6 forward. Ritchie- Obviously a good prospect we shall see. Dechemps - Bust Tangradi- Bust O'Dell-Bust DSP- decent 3rd line grinder Swan- Bust Kerdilles and Sorensen are solid prospects so well see. Not a very good track record.
  10. I haven't trusted their ability to evaluate forward talent for a long long time. Other than Ryan who was the 2nd overall pick, when was the last time the Ducks drafted a quality NHL forward in the 1st two rounds? Getzlaf and Perry?
  11. Yea I mentioned this a few weeks back. I'm down for Willaims and moving Silf to the left side. The problem with Willaims could be term tho for a guy who's in his mid 30s. And he could easily get more than what Bells wants. Hopefully the. Rumors about him wanting to stay in so cal are true and he takes a relative discount.
  12. There are a few options the ducks could target like Justin Williams and Drew stafford.
  13. He's still not a top 6 forward even if he doesn't regress. He put up a whopping 32 points. He has a good shoot yes, but what other offensive tools does he have? Im fine with the notion that he won't regress and this is the new Beleskey. But the likely hood that he will outweighs the likely hood that he won't imo. Either way I don't see the point of this. Nobody has a crystal ball. Maybe he'll regress and maybe he won't. It doesn't matter because either way he's not worth that sort of money to the Ducks. You seem to agree with at least that much.
  14. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out your angle here. I thought you agreed Bells wasn't worth signing to even the contract BM reportedly offered, let alone something more. Yet you're arguing for in favor of him being a 4+ mil dollar value player?
