Found April 02, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
PLAYERS: Cam Fowler
TEAMS: Anaheim Ducks
Cam Fowler of the Anaheim Ducks was one of the higher profile rookies in the NHL last year.  As an 18 year old he played a significant role with the Ducks.  He showed some offensive prowess scoring 40 points from defence.  The problem was he wasn’t much of a defensive player.  He had the worst team and zone adjusted Corsi rating in the league last year.  Anaheim Duck fans attacked me for pointing out this fact. Another season has nearly gone by.  Cam Fowler will not score as well in his sophomore year.  He currently has 29 points on the season.  Most alarming his +/- is the second worst in the league at -27.

Parros faces uncertain future in Anaheim

Few among the Ducks are more popular than George Parros, whose work on and off the ice over the past six seasons has made him a fan favorite. But the enforcer's future with the team is cloudy now that he's become a regular healthy scratch over the last six weeks and has an expiring contract. Unlike three years ago when the Ducks talked to him and got him locked up midway...

Selanne scores in possible final home game with Ducks

Teemu Selanne scored a goal in perhaps his final home game in Anaheim. Selanne was actually outdone by another Teemu (Hartikainen), who tallied twice to lead the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-1 victory over the Ducks on Sunday. Anaheim cut its two-goal disavantage in half with less than six minutes remaining in the first period when Selanne converted a pass from the bottom of the left...

Steve Palumbo: Ducks Stumbling Towards the Finish Line

The Anaheim Ducks have hit the wall....hard. In fact they are stumbling so bad towards the season's finish line it's starting to dim the glow of a wonderful six week run that made them relevant again. Losers of three of four, including two in a row the Ducks look more like the team that limped off the starting line, way back in October. Anaheim is just 4-5-1 in their last...

Steve Palumbo: Ducks' Teemu Selanne Going Out in Style?

With only three games left, the Anaheim Ducks may be playing their final handful of games with Teemu Selanne in the line-up. The Ducks have been outscored 6-1 while losing back-to-back games and of course Anaheim's lone goal came from none other then Selanne himself. If it indeed is Teemu's swan song he is going out in style with three goals in his last four games. ...

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...

Oilers Overcome Anaheim to Spoil Fan Appreciation Night in Anaheim

Fan Appreciation Night at the Honda Center and the final home game of the year in Anaheim.  Possibly the final home game of Teemu Selanne's illustrious career.    Clearly the Edmonton Oilers did not get the memo and spoiled any chance of Anaheim finishing off the season at home on a high note by earning a 2-1 victory over the Ducks. There did seem to be a memo stating that...
