    If you could hypothetically build two 80,000-seat hockey arenas, one in downtown LA and at the other at the corner of Douglass and Katella, you would see the difference. There are just more Kings' fans in So Cal than Ducks' fans. Just a numbers game. They for sure should be doing a better job of cultivating hockey fans in San Diego County, especially northern SDC. Build it around a Duck's Flyer train that is decked out in the colors, has a roving three piece hype band roaming the cars, themed food and beverages, pump in historic radio and TV game calls over the audio of the cars, get Ducks' alum to make the ride up with fans, do a pregame show live remote from the train - get creative, make it a whole experience, having two preseason games at Pechanga Arena. They should be giving away tickets on a nightly basis to Ducks' fans for Gulls' games and vice versa. They should play up the fact that LA claims the Kings, while the Ducks are really So Cal's Hockey Team. My son played plenty of away games for his HS team in Poway and Carlsbad over the last couple of years. There are hockey fans and players in SD. Many.

    At the trade deadline last year, there was only ONE trade involving players with term (more than one year on their contract). Any team trading for the players you mentioned would have had to protect them in the Entry Draft. Teams had trouble protecting their own players. Trade them this off season maybe, but with Rakell scoring 9 goals and Manson hurt most of the season, their value right now is at its lowest level imo. If the team flounders, and the players you mentioned have a decent season going, I think their trade value will be higher at the deadline.

    "All evidence" being five straight division titles and two trips to the WCFs? Aside from Rico (who arrived while Carlyle was dragging this group to the bottom of the ocean) and Manson in 2013-14, every single member of the "elder" core (Getzlaf, Gibson, Fowler, Lindholm, Manson, Rakell) were a part of those teams. I'm ready to die on the hill that the problem isn't that this current core is terrible together, it's that GMBM replaced critical members of our dominant core with borderline NHL players, and then compounded the problem by hiring inept coaches. We've essentially replaced Kesler, Perry, and Cogliano with Steel, Terry, and Devin Shore (who then turned into the ever-MIA Sonny Milano). We started the 2019-20 season with Getzlaf centering Terry and Shore on the top line and Steel centering Rakell and Silf on the 2nd line (with Ritchie-Rico-Kase as the 3rd line). Getzlaf didn't have a primary assist at 5-on-5 until around 30 games into that season. That doesn't mean Geztlaf was terrible, it means that his wingers were terrible and had zero finish. This team's identity has been strong defense and center play ever since Burkie came aboard, and the only times this team has floundered in the past 15 years is when the depth at Center has been bad. Fix the Center depth, and the rest of this team will follow. Like in 2011-12, when we were icing Getzlaf, a 37-year-old Saku Koivu, and a rotation of Cogs, Max Macenauer, Rod Pelley, a rookie Nick Bonino as our center depth. We righted that ship the following season by adding Mathieu Perreault and making Bonino the full-time 4C. Then after the Kings kicked our heads in during the 2014 playoffs, we righted the ship even further by adding Kesler to make one of the most dominant 1-2 C combos in the league. Fix the Center depth, fix the team. We also don't have a logjam at LHD. Larsson sucks and shouldn't be a full-time NHL player. Guhle and Mahura are not NHL players. Neither is 31-year-old Kodie Curran. LaCombe and Thrun are both 20 and haven't even signed with the Ducks yet, and may not. Or they could be traded for forward help, which GMBM said publicly he could trade D prospects to improve the offence. And Zellweger is still only 17-years-old. So there is no logjam there, unless you think Simon Benoit creates a logjam. Frankly, I'm just hoping Benoit can be a serviceable 3rd pair guy, because we don't even really have one of those at LHD on this roster. $14M for your two best D-men is also not cap prohibitive. Lots of teams have more than this committed to their top-2 paid D-men. It's not like this is San Jose with Karlsson-Burns-Vlasic combining for $26.5M in cap. The top teams typically have 25-30% of their cap taken up by D-men, which works out to about $20.6M-$24.75M of next year's expected $82.5M cap. Shattenkirk's $3.9M goes away the same season that Drysdale is due a raise too. They'll be more than fine.

    Fisix, you're smarter than that. At venues where alcohol is served, wristbands have to be worn AT THE CONCESSION STANDS where alcohol is being purchased to prove you're 21 years of age. That's what they do at the OC Fair. You're sitting at the Honda Center watching a Ducks game, wearing a wristband that's covered by your jersey or jacket. NOBODY is going to approach you at your seat, and ask you to show them your wristband. Come on.

    Shouldn't they be getting their development at the AHL level? I mean, that's why we have an AHL affiliate, for player development. Murray's "rebuild" or "re-tool" was to bring in under developed assets because he couldn't make or didn't want to make any off season moves to buy time for the kids. He should have started this after Carlyle's 2nd season back when the Ducks got bounced in the 1st round. So from my point of view, it's been one blunder after another from Bob. He promotes under developed players to play for an AHL coach at the NHL level and wonders why the team is awful. I'll throw blame on Eakins for accepting the Ducks HC job when he clearly wasn't ready for it. But again, it's also on BM for not hiring an experienced NHL coach.

    I'm not at all concerned by the Dostal write-up. First, others have ranked him in the top 10 in goalie prospects (Wheeler had him 6th or 7th), which is good. Second, goalie evaluation is a crapshoot for these guys who seem to be a lot better at analyzing skaters. Third, to me this reads as "capable starter." I'm of the opinion that all you need to win the Cup is a goalie who is consistent and capable, and one that can preferably get hot, but really just won't lose you games. It's no guarantee that Dostal becomes that, but this doesn't sway me from thinking he can. If the goalie trade market weren't so unpredictable, I'd be banging the "trade Gibson!" drum a lot more fervently. As it is, you never know what you might get. Sometimes you get a 1st and a 3rd for Darcy Kuemper and sometimes you get a 3rd for Alex Nedelkovic. Beats me. But if the Ducks traded Gibson, I think they'd be fine with Dostal. If Dostal fails, you pick up a free agent goalie as a stopgap and develop the next guy. The Ducks have always been very good at finding and developing goalie talent.

    Problem is if Manson isn't playing well up to the TDL he's not even going to get a 1st rounder or maybe nothing at all if he can't trade him. Manson and Rakell could just happily walk and test free agency next summer. I can understand Rakell having more value but Manson? If BM turned down a 1st round pick only from a team that wasn't on Mansons NTC list then he's nuts.

    The only player worse than Eichel is Fowler. In seriousness, while there's reason to be wary, it's hard to blame Eichel for this. It's HIS spine. The doctors that he saw and trusts recommended a specific type of surgery that Buffalo won't agree to. While that surgery does carry significant uncertainty for an NHL player, it's not exactly pseudo-medicine or experimental. And the fact remains, it's his body. And the spine is a pretty important part of it. So I don't blame him for holding out to get the surgery he thinks is right based on what doctors have told him. But if he does it, he doesn't get paid, which is a huge risk.

    Actually 2G in 21 games. Failed to mention his 16A (which results in a goal). So 18 points in 21 games playing with a jacked up neck. Over 82 games that's 70 points. Just saying.

    I'm old enough to remember a 35-year-old Francois Beauchemin leading the Ducks in TOI during the 2015 playoffs (while sheltering his 21-year-old partner, some Swedish dude name Hampus), which was not long after he finished 4th in the Norris voting at age 32. Maybe it's just me, but the thought of a 30/31-year-old Hampus Lindholm paired with a 22/23-year-old Jamie Drysdale really intrigues me.

    I don't personally know either one of you, and I would bet that you both are good, if not very good, people. So, keep in mind that this is the starting point for my post. Step back for a minute and look at your statements with an objective eye. What if all of the health agencies, etc. were requiring or mandating that you don't wear masks and/or do not get vaccinated - it was not their guideline for how to best defeat Covid-19? Would you want the same restrictions and identification requirements for people who had decided to wear a mask and/or get the vaccine, for their own personal health and mental state? "Sorry, you can't attend the game/eat at the restaurant/etc. if you wish to wear a mask/have been vaccinated. You must have your papers on you that prove you have been vaccinated or that show your doctor's sign off that you have not been vaccinated." Would that be reasonable? The same argument being made for people staying away if they are not vaxed/tested/masked can be made for people who are afraid of contracting Covid: just stay away, then. Don't come. Nobody is forcing you.

    It's unfortunately both for the NHL, and we could be in for a really weird season. For example, Frank Seravalli said on the DFO Rundown podcast yesterday that somewhere between 50-100 NHL players (~5-10%) are currently not in compliance with the NHL's vaccine protocols, many because they have eschewed the vaccines due to their own prior infections. Meanwhile, several countries in Europe are starting to recognize prior infection as an exception to their vaccine passports and there is emerging data that prior infection may be as robust, or perhaps even more robust, than vaccine-induced immunity, and so I don't think it would be a surprise if the vaccine requirement got very political once players started losing game checks because they refused a vaccine due to their pre-existing natural immunity. Many professional athletes are pretty intense about controlling what goes into their bodies (remember MacKinnon from earlier in the summer?), so it wouldn't surprise me if there were several dozen players who didn't get the jab despite the restrictions and penalties. I think that issue could get intensely political, and likely legal, if it turns out to be "face of the franchise" types. Masking the team personnel during games too. Are they going to continue the dog and pony show with the coaches masked while they stand quietly behind the bench, and then wearing the mask as a chin strap while they yell at the refs and give instructions to their players on the bench and in the huddle during timeouts? This is not a commentary about the efficacy of masking for you and me btw, but about what a joke it was for the NHL to "require" the coaches to be masked during games for health reasons when the only time the coaches actually wore the masks was when they were standing quietly away from their players. It happened all of last season. Seriously, do a google image search for any coach last season if you need proof. Tortorella, Brind'amour, Ducharme, Trotz, etc., etc. They ALL had their masks around their chins while they're actually coaching. (Eakins probably would have done the same if he actually, you know, coached.) Yet, as far as I know, not a single coach got fined or disciplined for mask violations (unlike the NFL, where they fined coaches and teams hundreds of thousands of dollars). Bettman said at the start of the season that the league would "vigorously enforce" the masking requirement for coaches, but if it was really a health issue for the coaches and players, and not just performative politics, where were the fines? Where was the discipline? There was none. As for masks at Honda Center this season, will paper bags on heads count?

    You know who would be great for Drysdale on that third pairing? Haydn Fleury. He's a big, but mobile left-hander. He's got plenty of games under his belt so he can provide a stabilizing presence. He's...wait, what's that you say? No longer with the team? But surely we wouldn't have given away a young, cheap defenseman with upside? Thanks, Bob. Maybe let's just put Deslauriers back there instead, since he was worth protecting. In seriousness, I could see Drysdale spending some time in the AHL to refine certain parts of his game, but there's no reason to send him back to juniors if the Ducks can avoid it. And Zegras clearly is ready to develop at the NHL level.

    I am hopeful Zegras and Drysdale can provide some sort of excitement throughout the season. It's just that I've been turned into a total pessimist when it comes to this team. All I can think of when it comes to those two is how they could spend the whole year developing losing habits under an overwhelmed coach who has never finished with a point% over .500 in an organization that doesn't care anymore. The idea of it has got a very pungent pre-McDavid Oilers stink to it.

    His stock was higher last season. As was anyone else's. If BM wanted to move anyone he should have done it prior to last season. Not counting Zegras and Drysdale because they were just getting their feet wet and with the exception of Comtois everybody's value took a hit after that dreadful season. BM messed up last off season and is doing even worse now. If the Eichel deal doesn't go through (which I still hope doesn't) I can also see BM announcing a deal for Connor McDavid also fell through at the last moment because edmonton wouldn't bite on our offer of Jacob Larsson, a conditional 7th rounder (the condition being the oilers winning The Cup, Larsson playing in 83 regular season games and picking up the Norris & Conn Smythe along the way), 2 Disneylandtickets, and a coupon for a hotdog at 50% at an Angels game. Because of these unfortunate proceedings BM will make a trade for Carter Rowney and Devin Shore and sign Jason Chimera to a PTO. He'll call it a succesful offseason saying we added speed and experience.

    Just read on Twitter from SiriusXM host John Hoven that the Murray’s most recent offer included two roster players… one unnamed and the other John Gibson, for Eichel… if I were Gibson, I’d feel so deflated going from the second worst to the worst team in the league!

    Apparently there is a handshake deal for $4M per season, I have read elsewhere a 3 year term. Can only be a gentleman's agreement at this point though, as players on 1 year deals can only sign extensions from January 1 from what I understand. I really like this move from Carolina. Basically they have to pay $6M this season to get this player's rights, then after that they only pay him $4M per year? Great stuff.

    If he can make Murray and Eakins uncomfortable enough to leave the team, i'd say he already made any trade for him worthwhile.

    I haven't heard he makes teammates uncomfortable. I've actually heard the opposite. As for clashing with a GM that wasn't following up on promises to build around him, okay. Good for him. He got a second and third opinion on a very dicey health decision. I would hope anyone would do that. His agent has been doing some weird things to try to force the situation. I'd have left him, too. He has not been ALLOWED to take care of his neck, contractually, for 5 months. His TEAM has refused to let him take care of it. What you hear about the artificial replacement goes against every single piece of news I've seen on the topic, and is the exact opposite. His method has a fairly short recovery period vs. all season for the team's approach.
  37. 2 points
    Yep, I think Adams can and will wait until he gets the deal he wants. And Eichel is better than Duchene (and younger), although you'd think the questionable health would drive the price down to a similar level. I think it's a fool's errand to try to come up with an equivalent value because the situation is so different (there's no third team involved; Ottawa and Nashville were both attempting to contend, which neither of these teams would; Colorado was at a different stage of their rebuild than Buffalo is; etc.), but I'm bored, so what the heck. Let's look for equivalencies. 1. Kyle Turris - he was 27, a good, but not great, player on an expiring contract who could be flipped (and was) for other pieces. The only one who remotely fits that bill for the Ducks is Rickard Rakell. I don't think Rakell is bringing back a prospect like Girard if Buffalo wanted to flip him immediately like Colorado did with Turris, much less additional assets (Kamenev and a 2nd), but he's the best fit for this exercise. 2. Shane Bowers - a low first round pick (a center) from the most recent draft. Interestingly enough, he's the only pick from the 1st round of the 2017 draft who has not played an NHL game. As well as Sakic did in this trade, that was a whiff. The best comparable player for the Ducks would be Olen Zellweger, the early 2nd round pick from this draft, but you could argue Perreault (2020 draft - #27 OA) is probably a better fit here. He's a better prospect than Bowers, but that makes up for some of the difference between Rakell and Turris. 3. Andrew Hammond - a flash-in-the-pan goalie who had a good 25 games for Ottawa and never came close to replicating it. He had a great nickname, though. This was strictly for depth on that Colorado team. I can't imagine they were looking at him as a long-term solution to anything. Maybe this is a guy like Kodie Curran? Roman Durny? Buddy Robinson? This could be any non-prospect in the Ducks' system that Buffalo might want. Heck, throw Josh Manson in here if we need to. 4. A conditional 1st - this would obviously be a must from Buffalo's perspective, with the "conditional" part of it being a must from the Ducks' perspective. 5. 3rd Rounder - No problem here The big difference is obviously between Turris and Rakell. Rakell at his best was probably better than Turris, but their careers through their age 27 season (which is when Turris was traded) were remarkably similar (seriously, it's eerie, check this out): Turris: 533 games, 133 goals, 178 assists, 311 points, 1215 shots, 10.9% shooting Rakell: 499 games, 138 goals, 173 assists, 311 points, 1230 shots, 11.2% shooting However, the biggest difference is that Turris is a center, which is a large point in his favor. The second biggest difference is that Turris was coming off of a very solid season, while Rakell is coming off arguably the worst season of his career since he was a rookie. As I mentioned above, there's no way Buffalo could get the equivalent of Sammy Girard from another team by flipping Rakell. They'd probably want the equivalent of Girard from the Ducks instead. Girard was a second round pick, but he had risen fast through the Predators' system and had value beyond the 2nd round pedigree. If you're looking at an equivalent from the Ducks, you have to look at Drysdale. Yes, he is rated more highly than Girard was, but Eichel's also better than Duchene, and this makes up for the two other assets the Avs got from the Predators. But that's a non-starter from the Ducks, as we know. So if we're leaving Drysdale out entirely and putting Rakell back in the trade, you've probably got to add McTavish to the mix. If Buffalo agreed to that deal it would be: Buffalo gives up: Jack Eichel Anaheim gives up: Rickard Rakell, Jacob Perreault, Kodie Curran, Mason McTavish, 2022 cond 1st, 2022 3rd (you could add the Kesler contract to make the money work for Buffalo) On paper, that's probably a good deal for the Ducks in terms of overall value, but they'd be giving up their two best pure scoring prospects. Maybe they could get Zellweger into the deal in place of Perreault if McTavish is part of the package. I know this was an exercise in fantasy, but like I said, I was bored.

    I think his comps right now are Saad (5 x $4.5M), Toffoli (4 x $4.25M), and Granlund (4 x $5M). Silfverberg's 5 x $5.25M is probably the outer limit, but that contract looks like quite an overpay in hindsight and it would be surprising to see Rakell get that in UFA with the current flat cap. Keeping him in Anaheim at Toffoli's contract would be fantastic, but I would also absolutely re-sign him for either Saad's contract or Granlund's contract. Four years means he's done at 32, and five years is 33. Unless there's some unknown injury he's dealing with, I think that is an ideal bridge to the next generation of Ducks and still makes him tradeable if one of the youngsters (Perreault?) surprises us within the next 2-3 seasons and makes him expendable.

    I think you extend Lindholm, and I think he'll take 7 years at about $7.5 mil to stay in ANA, over better offers. But, you gotta find that out now. If he wants 8 years or $8 mil or over, you gotta move on at the deadline, imo. Manson I move ASAP, for almost any return. Unless he wants to go 3 years at $4 mil or something. Especially if you are moving on from Lindholm. You move Lindholm AND Manson and your vets are Fowler and Shattenkirk. Sub-optimal.

    The Ducks aren't going to contend in the next two years, with or without Rakell and Lindholm. There might be a path to get there in two years, but they're certainly not taking any steps to do so. By year 3, Rakell and Lindholm are both 30 and are into their decline. Certainly the hope is that Perreault is ready to step in by that point and replace Rakell. If he's not, they'll have to go outside the organization anyway. Lindholm is less replaceable, but if he's not going to re-sign, we don't have a choice. And if it's even unsure or if he's looking to ask for more than $7.5 million, I think the assets are worth more to the Ducks. If Thrun or LaCombe or Benoit don't become that guy, then they use the assets to acquire someone outside the organization. That's a long way of saying that while Rakell is fine and Lindholm is still good (as long as he's healthy), neither one is irreplaceable, and neither one is going to push this team into the postseason in the next two years, unless it's a lucky 2014-Avalanche-esque run. To summarize for me: Manson should be traded. Deslauriers should be traded. Rakell should probably be traded. Lindholm can be retained, but if he hasn't signed an extension by the trade deadline, the team cannot risk letting him walk for nothing.

    Whenever I get bummed about the Ducks' drafting, I always like to look at BOS's first round in 2015, when they had three first round picks (in order) and they drafted 13th overall - Jakob Zboril 14th overall - Jake Debrusk 15th overall - Zachary Senyshyn and the next three picks were Matthew Barzal, Kyle Connor and Thomas Chabot. SAW-Wing and a miss!

    If he gets the surgery he wants - that he and his doctor's deem best for his health and his career - his contract is void. If he gets the surgery the team wants he will have a much longer recovery and a much greater chance of decreased ROM in his neck. That surgery is always "the last resort". Those are just the facts.

    Waiting on Eichel or not, this has easily been the most frustrating offseason for me as a fan. It's one thing to hope Buffalo says yes to our garbage and agrees to a blockbuster. This is still the sorriest team in the NHL going on 4 seasons now. You're allowed to attempt to improve the team, either for the rapidly approaching season, or the near future while you irresponsibly wait on something that's out of your control to materialize. The indifference to it all is what gets me. I appreciated how passive aggressive Getzlaf's statement from when he re-signed was at the time. Now I wish he was just flat-out inflammatory. Guy deserves better than to spend the twilight of his hall of fame career reliving the same nightmare every year.

    He’s not even a Ducks fan. He’s also fully invested in the Moneypuck analytics approach to building a team and thinks the Ducks should strip the team down to the studs and get rid of everyone over 25 in exchange for picks and prospects. Which is hilariously ironic given that he’s actually a Habs fan.

    I don't think that's the case though. Sure, they have his contract rights and they could sit him until he's a free agent technically. But in reality they have to trade him before the season starts. Everyone and their grandma knows to have Eichel be a part of their team is crazy. It's going to be a circus come training camp. If henrique was waived it seemed like we needed to part ways with him and the situation was irreparable then the Eichel situation is 100x worse. He's openly critiqued the sabers organization and he's openly demanding a trade I don't see how they could hold onto him. Who was it, Dubois? Who clearly was not trying on the ice when he was with the jackets. Assuming Eichel even plays, he's probably going to score on his own team lol.

    I think based on Tommer-1's link we could easily beat that deal without giving up any valuable assets which includes Lundestrom. 2023 1st, Milano, Steel, Mahura and Keslers contract. Also it sounded like Vegas wanted Buffalo to retain part of Eichel's salary which might have been the problem Buffalo had. Maybe swap out Tracey for Steel or add in the rights to LaCombe later if they don't go for the initial proposal if he's not included. Have to figure the Ducks 2023 1st round pick will still be at least a top 12 pick which would still be much better than any Vegas 1st round pick. The Ducks have more flexibility than Vegas unless Buffalo is outright wanting the 2022 1st round pick. If that's the case then BM should hang up the phone and let Adams stew on it for awhile.

    I'm sorry but this is quite a dumb statement. So we have to let every good player walk because we can't make the playoffs? Yeah that'll help us get there. Of course Lindholm isn't gonna carry this team to the playoffs on his own. You might want to look up some stats from last year. Connor McDavid led the league in points with 105. Max Comtois is the first Duck on that list in position 118 with 33 points. Go back one season. Then you have Adam Henrique in position 117 with 43 points. You can have Hedman and Fox on this team and we'd still not make the playoffs.
