Anaheim Ducks set market by keeping Getzlaf, Perry

The Anaheim Ducks have set the market for re-signing elite forwards.After re-upping Ryan Getzlaf to an eight-year, $66 million deal, the team retained Corey Perry with an eight-year, $69 million contract.

Ducks earn statement win over Blackhawks

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks insisted the game had nothing to do with making a statement, but there was really no other way to look at it. So much attention has been paid to the Chicago Blackhawks this season that maybe this was Anaheim's way of making sure someone took notice. It will happen now. The Ducks still have the second-best record in the NHL, but they left...

RPG: The Ducks' Top Line On One Card.

The day card companies exclusively produce cardboard which combines my favorite players, multi-colored minor league memorabilia, a sleek design, and a limited print-run is the day I officially go broke. I can't resist that amalgam of traits.Hence why I couldn't help but acquire the above beauty when it appeared on eBay recently. It's the Gold Version and is thus limited...

Ducks, Corey Perry agree to an eight-year extension

Only a little more than a week removed from the extension of Ryan Getzlaf, the Anahiem Ducks announced on Monday evening that they’ve agreed to an eight-year extension with forward Corey Perry worth $69 million. Perry was set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season and the Ducks organization felt that they couldn’t risk letting him hit the open market. ...

Corey Perry signs eight-year extension with Anaheim Ducks

After the Anaheim Ducks recently re-signed their captain Ryan Getzlaf to an eight-year extension most fans figured right winger Corey Perry’s days were numbered with the NHL team.

No Current Cap Issues In Anaheim

from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog, They'll need to look at retaining would-be unrestricted free agents Ben Lovejoy and David Steckel but both wouldn't cost too much. Kyle Palmieri is restricted and shouldn't price the Ducks out of their budget. If anything, Toni Lydman, who's making $3 million this season, figures to be the odd man out. Moving Luca Sbisa isn...

Ducks Give Patrick Maroon Two Year Extension by   Steven Ellis

The Anaheim Ducks announced tonight that they have given Patrick Maroon a two year, one way extension. Maroon was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the sixth round, 161st overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Acquired from Philadelphia with David Laliberte in exchange for Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson back on Nov. 21, 2010, Maroon has appeared in 13 career NHL games...

John Jaeckel: Big Wheels A Rollin'

Follow me @jaeckel The Blackhawks followed the script last night in Denver. Franchise figureheads Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews notched three-point nights. All four lines and the defense contributed in different ways and to varying degrees. Goalie Ray Emery was good enough to win. Boom, a 5-2 win, bumping the Hawks' latest win streak to three games, all on the road...

Jonathan Toews Short Handed Goal vs. Anaheim Ducks

I Just Can't Fight It.

And yes, I'm so excited. I recently acquired my thirteen Ryan Getzlaf Dominion patch out of 25. That number isn't quite as impressive as it sounds at first blush considering there are 25 of each of the variations: Nameplate, Jersey #, and Prime.Shoot, there could even be a "Patch" patch version /25 - there is one /10 - for all I know, and I generally consider myself...
