Ryan Getzlaf: Upper Deck Inked Sweaters Auto and 3-Color Patch, #'d /25

I was able to land a great deal on the below Ryan Getzlaf auto-patch, numbered 13/25, from 2007-2008 Upper Deck SP Game Used. A hard-signed John Hancock would of course be the preferred route but for $15 delivered from one of the biggest Getzlaf dealers on eBay whom I've purchased many cards from, I couldn't be happier with the newest addition to my Captain Getzy PC.The card...

The West Gets Stronger

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, The Ducks made some noise. Anaheim general manager Bob Murray beat Chicago rival Stan Bowman for Ryan Kesler, the No. 2 center who wanted out of Vancouver. Kesler and Ryan Getzlaf are a 1-2 pivot punch that will make opponents wary and weary. The Ducks also added ex-Bruin Nate Thompson, Clayton Stoner, and Jason LaBarbera. ...

UFA Day Not What It Used To Be

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun, Back in 2006, the Boston Bruins inked arguably the most impactful unrestricted free agent of the past decade in towering 6-foot-9 defenceman Zdeno Chara. Remember back to those days when superstar players like Chara actually became available on the free-agent market? These days, you almost never see that happen anymore. For example...

Ryan Getzlaf 2013-2014 Dominion 1/1 Black Printing Plate: Less Than a Blaster

I still jump at the chance to acquire any Ryan Getzlaf Dominion card that catches my eye, although they are few and far between nowadays. My favorite iteration of Panini's high-end Dominion will always be the inaugural release of 2010-2011 but as long as it's Getzy and Dominion I am definitely interested in shelling out dough.This bad boy was a most welcome and somewhat surprising...

Redeemed Quickly: Dion Phaneuf '13-'14 Panini Crown Royale Die-Cut Auto /25

I'm not a Toronto Maple Leafs' fan and I'm not a Dion Phaneuf fan even considering how talented he is. It's nothing personal; it's just that he's never played for my favorite team and he's also got quite a long and nasty history with my favorite player Ryan Getzlaf -- going back to their junior days -- so I have no need to root for him. However, I didn...

Ryan Getzlaf: Elite Inscriptions Auto.

The beautiful on-card John Hancock you see below has been on my Ryan Getzlaf needs list -- which is totally just in my head -- for quite some time. There haven't been a ton listed on eBay and the price was just too high for me for the most part when one did appear. However, patience paid off as I was able to land this gorgeous piece of cardboard (love the acetate design!) for...

San Jose hosting outdoor NHL game in 2015, says report

Had the NHL’s outdoor hockey game at Dodger Stadium been a humbling failure – if it was way too hot and, like, Ryan Getzlaf literally fell through the ice in the third period – it could have set back plans to bring the Stadium Series to non-traditional (i.e. snow free) markets. Instead, it was pretty much the coolest thing ever, from the aesthetics of the grassy baseball diamond...

Three straight Game 7s: How the Kings got here

CHICAGO -- If you had said the Kings would be on the verge of a second Stanley Cup Final berth in three years about eight weeks ago, people probably would have displayed some strange looks. But the two brutal beatdowns in San Jose and a 3-0 series deficit was only the start of the extremely windy road the Kings have taken in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. There's been more upsets...

It’s No Longer The Sid And Ovie Show

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, You certainly get the sense that this may be the point at which the Penguins and Capitals aren’t really linked any more, or at least not as much. They’re as different as they are alike. Players like Steven Stamkos, Henrik Lundqvist, Jonathan Toews, Ryan Getzlaf and Anze Kopitar have caught up to Nos. 87 and 8 when it comes to the...

Game 7 In SoCal

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register at the Los Angeles Register, There have been dueling car flags on the streets and battling billboards along the freeways. Perhaps some split households, too, with Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf enjoying the sight of a strolling couple adorned with opposing jerseys. The back-and-forth series is at its logical conclusion. The Kings came into...

NHL takeaways: Mi casa es su casa for Ducks, Kings

The one series that appeared in doubt is now the one conference semifinal that looks like a lock. Boston got an inspired effort up and down its lineup to take control of its Eastern Conference semifinal series with Montreal off a 4-2 win on Saturday at TD Garden that gave the Bruins a 3-2 series lead. But Anaheim evened things up with a 2-0 win over Los Angeles at Staples Center...
