Found July 04, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
from Rory Barrs of the National Post, Ryan Getzlaf of the Anaheim Ducks could be on the market, and what team would not jump to acquire his rare combination of size and skill. Florida’s Stephen Weiss might be looking for a change of scenery after spending the entirety of his career with the Panthers. Mike Ribeiro, Andy McDonald, Mike Fisher, Derek Roy and Matt Cullen can also expect to attract plenty of suitors. Wingers with expiring contracts in 2013 include Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla, who even at age 35 remains a consistent 30-goal scorer. Anaheim’s Corey Perry will be next summer’s equivalent of Parise if the Ducks are unable to come to terms with the former Hart Trophy winner during the season. Anaheim GM Bob Murray has publicly stressed the importance of re-signing both Perry and Getzlaf to long-term deals, but keeping the duo will prove costly. Toronto’s Joffrey Lupul heads into the final year of his current deal with the Maple Leafs on the heels of a 67-point se...

Ducks sign Rakell, add to offensive prospects

While the United States, Canada, Sweden, Denmark and Russia are all represented at the Anaheim Ducks summer conditioning camp, it was Lincoln, Nebraska's Memorial Stadium that had captivated Lac Beauport, Quebec native and fourth round draft pick Kevin Roy.

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. The Ducks ended up with two first-round selections, and after selecting Cam Fowler, took the local favorite, Long Beach's own Emerson Etem. Etem went insane this past season, and I desperately wanted an autograph of the just...

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...

More Signings For Ducks - Rakell, Hendry, Smaby

Free agency just begins on July 1.  It is not a one day affair.   Clubs are signing contracts with not only free agents, but also prospects of their own.  Anaheim is no different. The Ducks added more defensive depth by signing Jordan Hendry and Matt Smaby to one year contracts.  Smaby, 27, played in Syracuse last season (the Ducks former AHL affiliate).   He is a huge presence...

A Limited eBay 1/1.

I don't actively search out eBay 1/1s, but when they're staring me right in the face and priced to sell, I pounce. That's how I ended up with the below insert from '11-'12 Panini Limited, dubbed Stanley Cup Winners. It's numbered 015/199, and 15 is of course the number of my main man, Ryan Getzlaf.I really dig the card, as it always puts a smile on my face...
