You still don’t scratch your leading goal scorer during historic skids for 4 straight. 

you do if he's only playing one phase of the game and not putting out the effort the other guys are at both ends.  I had zero problem with it.  Aberg has and always will be a career waiver wire player.

We rode the hot hand while it lasted, but Aberg was bound to come back to earth and he did.  Which means that all the issues that led to him being a healthy scratch in Edmonton and Nashville were no longer being compensated for by his goal scoring.  That said, I think Aberg could have been a nice depth scorer in a system that actually made sense.  Which isn't Carlyle's system.  I expect Boudreau to get 10 - 15 goals out of Aberg over the rest of the season.

Fun note, though, I saw Kloos play when I went to an Iowa Wild game in December.  Slightly less fun note, other than the fans all shouting "Klooooooooos" when he was introduced, I did not notice anything special about him.

Who's giving all of this effort that you speak of? Cogliano...oh that's right...he's gone

Aberg can’t stick with any team. Kloos is an undersized college kid that hasn’t had his NHL chance yet. Probably won’t end up being anything special, but his AHL stats are decent, especially this year. He should help the Gulls if nothing else. 

The real story today is Jones/Terry being called up. Let’s see how they do. It will especially be interesting to see the difference in Terry from the start of the season to now.

This.  Come on, how people said "Tenkrat" on here while he was scoring the goals?

I think they all are.  They are pressing badly now, which tends to snowball as streaks get longer.

Really hope Terry gets a goal ASAP.

This is hysterical.  It wasn't more than a few weeks ago that people were praising Murray for picking up Aberg.  So now what?

Aberg read all those praises and it went to his head.  He saw his name hanging from the rafters and figured he didn't have to work hard any longer.

I think there's something else going on, something aside from stats.  I mean, we're still developing Ritchie, but we dump Aberg just for a few recent defensive mishaps?  There's no good way to sync those two things up, unless there's some kind of externality dragging Aberg down.

Didn't someone early on post about his issues playing with prior teams?  I don't recall what they were.

Good memory.  He has had a lackadaisical approach to showing up for practices in the past:

https://thehockeywriters.com/anaheim-ducks-aberg-find-his-way/

Not too much of a stretch to think he may have tried that with RC and got benched.  I doubt anyone is in a forgiving mood right now.  And, if coach won't play him, and he can't be sent down... he's first to go in a minor shake up.

However, in order to stick with Anaheim long-term and make an impact, Aberg has to overcome some problems. The first might be the reason he hasn’t stuck around in one city for very long: maturity. After arriving in Edmonton in March 2018, Aberg had the opportunity to play alongside Connor McDavid, but then he missed a practice prompting coach Todd McLellan to scratch him from the lineup:

“He came out for reasons beyond his play,” McLellan said when asked about the seriousness of Aberg’s infraction. “It’s serious. The coaching staff isn’t pleased, the organization isn’t pleased and I’m sure his teammates aren’t pleased but players do make some mistakes. There are reasons for missing sometimes that you have to go and dig and find out why, and that’s already been done, and we’re ready to move on.”

I know Lets start BreakDancing...Anyways...I am surprise by this trade...Odd they trade him to a team Ducks are facing in battling for a Playoff spot. Kloos is imho for the Gulls and it seems moving him clears up space for Terry and Jones.

This just keeps on getting better and better.  The ducks now have their own "Mr. Hockey" in their midst.  That's gotta be good for a goal or two.

Something must have happened off the ice. To go from 1st liner to healthy scratch to being traded in such a quick span is not a normal process. I had no problem healthy scratching Aberg because he looked terrible in his last few games, but it's hard to understand why he was pretty much made an example out of.

What a bizarre saga. He might have been the worst player on the team when the Ducks claimed him. Then he gets waived again, comes back, scores the goal of the year for Anaheim, becomes a a cult hero as one of our best offensive threats for the next month and a half, only to end up getting the Grabovski treatment from Carlyle to close out his stint as a Duck. Aberg is such a weird player too. I don't recall ever seeing a player who could drastically go from thud, to thunder, and back again all in a single shift. There was no greyscale with him. At least it was something funny to watch during such a boring and awful season. 

He might have been terrible without the puck on his stick, but the same could have been said about several of our players during this stretch. He could do things with the puck that few players in our bottom 6 could though. I'm not opposed to trading him, but one of our top goal scorers (however sad that may be) for a guy who's the same age without any of the NHL contributions to his name? Hard not to think that they could have done a lot better here.

I get the logistics and flexibility, but I don't get the reasoning why the logistics has to play a part here, now that we have 2 additional forwards on IR.

I think the only thing I can say for sure is that I don't understand the underlying impetus for these particular moves.  Mechanically, in hindsight, I can follow why y goes to y because x went to x... but i don't get why x was sent to x.  not in any concrete sense.

one theme that makes a little sense... with the two additional injuries, in mid January, no follow up positive words about Perry, Eaves needing conditioning, Getz looking tired if not injured and hiding it... this could be a set of moves for maximum flexibility with lineups and with minimal risk to losing players that matter now or that we think will matter in the coming seasons, so that we can season some rookies that'll be up or out next year.

basically, we're shifting to a scrimmage team.  no playoff prospects, basically shooting for increased 1st round draft pick priority.  this may be the towel.  

Throwing in the towel might not be too far from the truth,  Comtois could be up here, but keeping in junior keeps him from being exposed in the expansion draft.  Sometimes the business aspects weigh in to personnel decisions.

Per an article in the Athletic, it appeared that Carlyle thought Aberg needed a higher compete level.

I can't believe Aberg was just traded for a leprechaun. Maybe Bruce will know what to do with Aberg. I mean where will the offense come from now? It's just sad day in Duckville when your legendary player gets traded....by the beard of Sexton this can't be happening. Uggghhh.

I really liked Aberg. He was one of the few who rose above the rusted system of RC and was still able to score. He will thrive under BB. Wild just got better. Aberg has skill and creativity around the net. He’s a quality player. 

Ive never heard of Kloos but the same could have been said for Aberg who I didn’t know of either when we first got him. What’s sad for Kloos is that he is a Minn native so being traded away from his home state probably hurt a bit.
