The Ducks continue with their abbreviated training camp and already are making some interesting moves. Goaltender Viktor Fasth was sent to Norfolk of the AHL, not because he has been cut, but in order for him to get some game experience in.  Fasth has not played a game since last November when he injured his hip in Sweden.  He has been dealing with hip and groin issues since. Without any pre-season games to "warm up," the Ducks figured a couple of games in Norfolk would be helpful.  The 30 year old Swede is expected to be back up for Jonas Hiller.  Depending on how Fasth performs in Norfolk will determine whether or not he will be ready to join the Ducks in Vancouver to back up Hiller when the season begins on Saturday.   If not, Jeff Deslauriers will be available. Meanwhile, in camp the Ducks continue to work with their new look lines.  Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry now have small, speedy winger Kyle Palmieri on their line.   Nick Bonino, who received a lower number (an almost sure sign of his staying in Anaheim on a more permanent basis), has been put on the second line alongside Teemu Selanne and Bobby Ryan.    The Ducks have moved Saku Koivu down to the third line, with Andrew Cogliano and newcomer Daniel Winnik.  The fourth line is comprised of Matt Beleskey, Brad Staubitz and potentially Emerson Etem.  With Etem, the question is do you send him to Norfolk for the experience and playing time or keep him in Anaheim with limited minutes?  The dilemma of every up and coming rookie. Training camp continues through this week, with practices being open at Anaheim Ice.  Over 2500 fans came out on Sunday at the Honda Center, and the first couple of days at Anaheim Ice were also well attended, despite being on a working weekday.      Ryan, Selanne, Bonino Getzlaf, Perry, Palmieri Koivu, cogs winnik
