  1. Then why haven’t we had a solid first line in the last seven years? And in that time our second line was more productive than our first. So yes he’s done nothing to give us a boost at playoffs or off season to get better. And that’s fact.
  2. I wish I could move on. I wish BM would move on. For the past six or so years. We’ve made the playoffs and BM does nothing at the trade deadline to improve the team. To give us that push through the playoffs. We watch other teams improve while we stand pat or trade for a nobody or worse trade for help to see them leave at the off season. BM had plenty of chances to improve this team and did nothing. That window of opportunity is gone. So now what? What’s he trying to build now? He can’t wait for our younger talent to improve because our current talent will be past their prime. I mention players of the past because it seems they play here at the beginning of their careers and move on or they end their careers here. Next years going to be the same as this year and then the expansion draft. Then I’m sure Getz will prolly retire and who knows where Ricky and Silvy will be in their careers as far as being a threat on the ice. Fowler oh good lord, I don’t see him being much help at that time. As far as this young talent pool of ours, well i would suspect they will follow your advice and just “move on”. And to everyone in this chat. We are brothers and sisters as fans even if we disagree. Merry Christmas everyone!!
  3. Classic Palmieri and Vatanen scores sweet revenge for those two Hey GMBM poop or get off the pot. It’s been too long.
  4. Anderson handles the puck much better Anderson gives up less rebounds which Gibby gives up quite a few which leads to 2-3 more shots because of the rebound. Which plays into the higher save percentage. Another factor is positioning which leads to more missed shots. If Gibby had better positioning then it would decrease his SOG which also would play into his save %. Gibby is definitely a good goalie and we have him for a good price. Hopefully he continues to get better as he gets into his prime 30’s. He is also one of the least experienced goalie in the league so I would not consider him at this point as a elite goalie.

  6. if there is a chance that BM can land a upcoming UFA like Hall or Backstrom or a defenseman to quarterback the power play like Faulk or Barrie. I would hope he would pull the trigger but knowing BM....he won’t
  7. Three straight years the Ducks didn’t qualify for the playoffs and then in 95/96 season they pulled off the Selanne trade and the next year Stanley Cup Playoffs and the rest was history. The point is GMBM should always be looking to make the team better no matter what the current status of the team is. That’s the frustration of being a Ducks fan as of late because BM does nothing to get this team over the top.
  8. I’m sorry I just haven’t seen him be consistent except being injured. We have had close games and I’ve seen him too many times give up a soft goal to tie the game. He is an above average goalie but hasn’t earned the right to be called an elite goalie. Stats like save % don’t really tell the whole story, good or bad.
  9. Even if we have a smidgen of hope to make the playoffs BM will do nothing at the trade deadline.
  10. How can any of you, especially those Gibby fans, not be disappointed during all those past seasons at the trade deadline? As we watch our conference teams get better and BM does nothing to get the Ducks more offense or at least a quarterback Defenseman for our power-less-play. Then us fans think “wow we made the playoffs again” so we hope that BM will surely get on the phone to make the team better for the following season but again disappoint the fans during the off-season. So all we have to look forward to for the following season are new restaurants at the pond.
  11. That’s going back to my original point. Perron, McGinn did play well with Getz and they contributed offensively but BM didn’t keep them for the following season, especially Perron. I would have liked to seen them together for a entire season. Again BM does absolutely nothing to get this team a real Top Line.
  12. Once again Gibson can’t steal a game for us. Letting in soft goals. He’ll probably claim injury next game. Really disappointed in him lately.
  13. I like the discussion. However again the biggest disappointment is when we get to the playoffs and BM does nothing to make the team better by the trade deadline. Then again in the off season does nothing thru free agency. How can anyone say this isn’t an issue when we haven’t had a solid or consistent first line in years. That’s why BM need to go.
  14. Glad to see the discussion on this. My main point to the above rant was, we all think the same thing at the trade deadline. Which is, we need a scoring winger to solidify a strong fist line but we as fans continue to be disappointed that BM does nothing. Good players come and go and this is what we are left with. We have done such a great job getting to the playoffs but BM does nothing to get us thru the playoffs. He just blames the coaches he needs to grade himself. Please Santa a new GM but on a good note. I’m saving money not going to disappointing duck games.
