  1. He may get a look at wing in the nhl also.
  2. Fair enough I didn't mean he was only famous for being a king...but the rivalry makes it worth noting. all I meant by that. Also I know he's a broadcaster but aside from a few live bonus coverages, on nhl network and draft time/free agency/trade deadline do we in the states get piped in to TSN. Maybe a handful of times a yr.
  3. Why? Is there something I'm not aware of other than ray being a famous king?
  4. A Center I wouldn't mind seeing the Ducks bring in is Landon Ferraro, to fill Thompson void...more Suited to play bottom 6 like nate. Landon was not given a qualifying offer and almost certainly will be a free agent, July 1st.
  5. With our second-fourth round pick (115th overall),the Ducks selected Alex Dostie, a center from the QMJHL's Gatineau Olympiques. The one kid I thought was must have in this whole draft. Obviously... I knew he was going to be a second day pick. He had a shoulder injury last year and was not on the draft radar. He's only 5 foot 10 and 170 pounds, but speedy, gritty fast. Above-average shot and super vision. He has garnered comparisons to Mathieu Perrault... since minor hockey, as a youngster. Had over 70 pts(24 goals, 48 assists), in 54 games,this season. He is older For a draft prospect(19) but is just now rounding into his expected form offensively. At least one connected person, in terms of knowing prospects, said.... he could break out for 100 points this year. Maybe not seemingly huge prediction, since he was on Pace in a full Junior season, to score in the 80s. But as you guys know in any League nowadays hundred points is a hallowed mark. Although, I am originally from California and now live in the Midwest, as an avid hockey and diehard Duck fan since nearly the start of the team... I follow major Candian Junior Hockey closely. Which is to say, I heard about this kid since he was 16 and being talked about as sure fire star in the Q, when he was drafted. I think you guys get the point of this thread, I'm super high on this kid...thoughts?
  6. If things don't turn around in say 10 games, the boys need a wake up call on the ice itself, not just changing the coach. Now yes I get Johnson isn't great defensively, but cam isn't exactly the second coming of Scotty Nieds and Johnson is a little better offensively and much better on Powerplay. I get that Johnson isn't much of an upgrade,but to me more of a threat than cam, plus the needed shakeup. Cause pears and Getzy can't be traded, cam may be the only way to send a message to the locker room. Plus you have a good young pipeline on D... Theo, Lindholm, Larsson and of course vats is young and you extended Manson. Doesn't mean I blame or don't like Cam, but we need a shake up and with the system depth on D he is expendable. Also as I said, you get a PP upgrade with Johnson and a bit more offensive upside. Just a suggestion, change of scenery for both and remember I said IF we don't show improvement signs by say mid November. To do it before then is a panic move and it's a little early for that.
  7. Another option would be Scott Hartnell if Clbs continues tail spin
  8. Not a rumor for the Ducks, but Rumored to be possibly headed out of Boston. Stewart, although early doesn't look to be a top line LW right now, where as Marchand can be penciled in for 25 goald and 50 points at LW. Why not kick the tires?
  9. Yep, agreed good to experience North American hockey
  10. He will play for the Barrie Colts, I was ecstatic to draft this kid late 2nd, he was a kid I wanted badly. I'm very high on him obviously and think he is like a Mikko Koivu type, responsible 2 way center can play Left wing. I love his choice to come play in NA... as we all know ice and physically are different, along with penalty calls to a degree. Also culture difference is good to get used to. He is a stud in my opinion and I see a 20 goal, 50-60 point guy in future and this decision will fit better for his Ducks future.
  11. If Linholm becomes an all star people will say the 6th pick was justified and I think he will be a multiple time all-star, but I also think Kerdiles is going to be 20-25 goal scorer and a 50-60 point player and people will look back and say 29 other teams had a shot at him, what a steal!
  12. I know that was part of the reason he wants to be a Duck.
  13. To me the 6th pick won't be a steal, for one he is the 6th pick, two I believe in Lindholm already.
  14. I said it a few times I think he is a better skating Bobby Ryan, and may end up being the steal of the draft. On another note, he replied to a tweet of mine today, saying that me asking for a retweet wasn't as good as a reply and he thanked me for my kind words. Main point being he is really busy and probably has millions of requests on twitter, but he still takes the time to thank fans for kind words. He really wants to be a Duck, and seems like a nice kid we are lucky to have him!
