More Meetings For The Ducks

from Eric Stephens of the Ducks Blog, Meetings, meetings and more meetings. The Ducks seem to be full of them at the moment. They’ve been one-on-one on the ice and, most recently, in the coach’s office. They’ve been as an entire group in the dressing room. The problem is teams that have a lot of meetings is a sure sign that there are problems to be sorted out. And the bottom...

Talking Ducks, Canes and HHOF

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, • An educated guess: If the Anaheim Ducks continue to struggle, don’t be surprised if Randy Carlyle winds up as the leading candidate to replace Ron Wilson as Leafs coach at the end of this season. And GM Bob Murray has to be regretting the three-year extension he gave Carlyle late last season… Strange thing about the Ducks: They had the...

Kings, Ducks appear headed in opposite directins

A night after the Los Angeles Kings edged the Anaheim Ducks in a shootout that seemed to feature missed opportunities on both sides, the two teams completed their home-and-home series in a game that featured eight goals, 74 shots, two shorthanded goals, two power play goals and a 17-minute delay when the Honda Center lights didn't feel like emerging from the locker room after...

Ducks Can’t Score

The lowest scoring team in the NHL so far this season is the Anaheim Ducks.  Their 2.0 goals per game is the lowest total in the NHL right now (that does not include “phantom” goals for shootout wins).  Anaheim is off to a poor start this season.  They have the fourth worst record with 6 wins and 13 losses.  Four of those losses gave them regulation tie points to give them...

In which Bobby Ryan criticizes Taylor Lautner’s acting in ‘Twilight’

Yahoo! Sports has a site called The Post Game which is an entertaining mix of sports and pop culture, and I had a chance to contribute a piece today in which Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks reviews "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1." From a hockey perspective, it was interesting to hear that Ryan attended the premiere this week with members of the Los Angeles Kings...

Kings Prevail Over Ducks in Shootout

The first meeting of the season between the Kings and the Ducks that ended in a 2-1 shootout victory for the Kings was not nearly as even as the final score would make it appear.Were it not for superb goaltending by Jonas Hiller, the game would have been over in the first period.  The Kings outshot the Ducks 17-5, yet it was still 0-0 heading into the second period.   Maybe Hiller...

Kings Down Ducks Second Night in a Row

So as a Duck fan, where are you in the stages of death and dying for your team?  Denial?  Anger?  Bargaining?  Depression?  Acceptance?As the season continues in the muck and mire and what appears to be a fighting chance at the number one draft pick in June, I am personally getting pretty close to acceptance.  Nearly a fourth of the way into the season and the Ducks have a...
