Found July 06, 2012 on Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
PLAYERS: Emerson Etem
TEAMS: Anaheim Ducks
Continuing on yesterday's Emerson Etem front, I picked up a sweet two-color patch with a fat seam of the Ducks' high-scoring prospect a while back. It's the Jumbo Jersey Gold version, and as such is limited to just ten copies. When it arrived, I was pretty shocked, but not because of how awesome the card is. No, I was stunned because a different card slid out of the bubbler.The seller had accidentally mixed up my card with another, but he was great about the situation. He profusely apologized on multiple occasions, got into contact with the other person who had the Etem, and after I shipped back the wrong card, quickly got the right card in my hands along with a few bucks to cover what I spent shipping the other card his way. Fight was an overstatement, but it seemed like an intriguing word for the title.I love that ITG and Brian Price were ultra-specific with where this patch comes from, as the back clearly states that the patch hails from a "game-used Emerson Etem...

My Newest Player Collection: Emerson Etem, Southern California's Own.

I was fortunate enough to attend the 2010 NHL Draft held in L.A. at the Staples Center, and it was a phenomenal experience, especially as a Ducks' fan.

Etem went insane this past season, and I desperately wanted an autograph of the just...

Thomas Paine once said, “These are the times that try men's souls." A quote that has more historic relevance then anything to do with hockey. If you're Bobby Ryan or Ryan Getzlaf that quote may have a different meaning to you these days. Ryan's days are numbered and the list of teams wanting to acquire the four time 30-goal scorer continues to increase....

Travis Yost: Turning to Bobby Ryan?

A couple of weeks ago, in the midst of the Ryan Nash // Ottawa rumors, I penned a blog post about why another name -- specifically Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks -- was a far better fit for the Ottawa Senators organization. Young. Incredibly gifted. Top-six forward with thirty-plus goal potential -- he's shown as much in four consecutive seasons now. In fact, the only hurdle...

Steve Palumbo: Anaheim Ducks Staying Busy this Summer, Is a Big Trade Next?

The Anaheim Ducks are staying busy during these dog days of summer. While the rest of the hockey world has been transfixed on the drama unfolding in Minnesota, Bob Murray and company have been tinkering away at a Ducks roster that missed the playoffs last season. The Ducks made a semi-big free-agent splash with the immediate signings of Sheldon Souray and Bryan Allen. Both are...
