from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog, The answer popped out immediately from Ryan Getzlaf‘s mouth when the Ducks’ captain was asked what he’d like to do with his 2011-12 season. “Forget about it,” he said, managing a tired smile. When sifting through the Ducks’ wreckage of a season, Getzlaf’s own mess is right on top of the heap. The big center has gone without injury for the first time in three years but his game has been hurting for months. For instance, Getzlaf scored his 10th goal of the season Tuesday night against Vancouver in the Ducks’ 80th game to avoid the embarrassment of going through a full year without reaching double figures. Pearl Jam’s “Ten” was an achievement. This one wasn’t. The goal total isn’t the only red flag. Barring a last-ditch burst over the final two games against Edmonton and Calgary, Getzlaf will finish with fewer than 60 points for the first time since his second season when he, Corey Perry and Dustin Penner made up the second line on the 2006-07 Stan

I Will Most Certainly Treasure This Ryan Getzlaf Patch.

I stumbled upon a sweet dual relic (jersey/patch) of my main man Ryan Getzlaf, and though the shipping was exorbitant, I couldn't pass up winning an awesome new addition to my Getz PC - as the sole bidder - for just 99 cents.Numbered 18/50, the tan patch is a big plus for me. Colorful relics are fantastic relics. I added another card (as trade bait) to lessen the shipping damage...

Ducks GM Murray looks to future

An awful first three months is the reason the Ducks will not be in the playoffs for the second time in three seasons, and a strong second half won't cover that up. Bob Murray, the club's general manager, isn't going to ignore that. But the Ducks' chief architect is through with being steaming mad at his team's predicament. His eyes are already turned toward...

Ducks focus on pluses with Fowler

Cam Fowler vowed to do something about that minus-25 mark that was a stain on a promising 10-goal, 40-point rookie season in 2010-11. However, the 20-year-old Ducks defenseman might finish with numbers trending the wrong way as a sophomore. Fowler entered Tuesday night's game against Vancouver with this line: Five goals, 24 assists and a minus-27 rating. The last number left...

Ducks spoil Oilers home finale in OT

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- After yet another disappointing season, the Edmonton Oilers were hoping to give their fans something to cheer about in their final home game. Ryan Getzlaf spoiled those plans. Getzlaf scored in overtime as the Anaheim Ducks gave Edmonton fans an unhappy final look at their team at home this season, defeating the Oilers 3-2 on Thursday night. An Edmonton...

The Mighty and Ultimate Ryan Getzlaf Rookie Swatch.

Another pickup made with Card Draft funds. Just under eight clams. Love the bright swatch and the fact that the jersey piece isn't tiny. The old school Mighty Ducks logo underneath the relic area is just fantastic as well.Numbered 203/250, it's another addition to the Getzlaf Collection. There is an autographed version of the card, which I believe is short-printed to just...

Anaheim Ducks vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

Quack Quack Mr Ducksworth Yes, the switch can be flipped. All the way back in March the Canucks were making some people hit the panic button for the simple fact that the Canucks weren’t hitting it themselves as the team took the most laissez-faire approach to hockey since Vincent de Gournay last fielded a team all the way back in 1755. Now they’ve won seven in a row. This is...

A Tale of Two Goaltenders

Oilers lose 3-2 to Ducks in OT It was only Jeff Deslaurier’s 3rd start with the Anaheim Ducks, but this game may be his most memorable. Playing against his former team, and against the netminder with whom he had competed against and with for the majority of his professional career in Devan Dubnyk,  Deslaurier was the goaltender to walk away with the win.Continue reading "...
