    Lol. They should make this the slogan for next season.

    LOL! You know Bob better than that. He's a serial diver. Like a serial killer the urge just builds and builds until the guy is about to explode. We should all be happy his explosive urge to dumpster dive only cost a 4th round pick. It could have been 3-4.million of our cap space. Now that I said that, what are they paying this guy? It better be close to a million.

    Or as we'll be calling him in a few years - a pylon.

    Like the guys we got, but I hope not taking Poldozkin doesn't bite us. I guess the Ducks are still done with Russians.

    My opinion is absent of Eakins as a coach. I really have no idea of how he's going to do. The only thing I see is nothing that makes me think he's anything special as a coach. I hope I'm just not seeing it. This leads us to Bob.The guy who waited until after the playoffs to ask permission to interview contending teams coaches out of respect. Who did you interview Bob??? That's the question I would like answered. What happened? Because it looks again like Bob is showing up small as a GM. What am I missing here. The last two coaches Bob has hired are a guy he knows and a guy who is his decent AHL coach. I'm not inspired at all with this. Maybe it's time to make the guy who tells Bob who to pick in the draft our GM. You know, a guy that knows how to recognize talent. The more time that passes, the more Bob looks like the guy who is good enough to get too long of a look. The guy who you wake up 15-20 years after you originally hired him and realize he really didn't have it. Autry, Moreno, Sciocia, ...Murray? If you're the real deal, the results show up within 10 years.

    There's got to be something going on between Perry and Bob.The timing; the amount of the sale so closely approximating a years salary. It's like Corey is trying to egg Bob (or the Samuali's?) into buying him out. You know the guy wants to leave. It has to be a little hard on him being so much of a slug. But if Bob's pissed off, he could be thinking '2 million is just a better class of dumpster dive. I'm going make him sit in that locker room and suck it.' Or maybe Bob still see's himself as a master negotiator. Maybe he thinks he's going to get someone to take Perry's contract to make the league minimum. He may be sitting at home right now reading The Art of the Deal saying, "dam_ it, there's got to be something in here." We can only hope you figure something out Bob. You know, this would all be funny if you weren't a Ducks fan.

    LMAO. Corey Perry - already one foot out the door. They ask," How could he pay that much?" Well... Maybe a better question is,"How do the Samuali's feel about buying it for him?" Perry's going to spend the next year hanging out in Anaheim, maybe playing a little 3rd line part of the time.But mostly hanging out and saying the right things to the press. All on the Samuali's dime. This years salary is probably like Monoply money to him.

    I wouldn't count on it being Eakins. First, Murray could have already given it to him if that's the plan. I think he's down the list a bit and Murray wants to see the response of a couple other guys to the position. Eakins looks like the safe pick that you hold in your pocket in case the guy(s) you want doesn't work out. Second, I think loyalty is out the window with this choice. Murray f'ed up with bringing Randy back. No SCF in, what is it, 11-12 years. The guy who said Bruce understood his termination because he's a hockey guy, must be feeling the heat to succeed. I don't see any favors coming here.

    We kind of got the short end all around on how the draft order worked out. I hope we get lucky.

    I don't know. That sounds a little too energetic for Bob. And, without a single dumpster dive in your plan, I'm going to have to give you a big, "Nice try, but..." The 'but' being, you know Bob. There's got to be an AHL guy in there or... someone who was a high draft pick but didn't pan out or... once was good but is coming off an injury. If we had gone to the playoffs, you could have added any player that has the one attribute that Bob feels was the reason we got knocked out. But alas, Bob gets a break this year from having to remake the team with those guys.

    The real question is does Murray realize we're just a good team now - middle of the road, maybe slightly better. Kesler washed up, Perry a third liner. We need a top of the line FA. Is Murray going to get something done or sit on his hands and wait for the bad contracts to run out?

    The real BS is that a player fails to drag his toe at the Blue line, ten seconds later a goal is scored that is in no way influenced by the offside and the goal is called off on appeal. Yet something as important as the hand pass is not reviewable. The NHL owners have made a mess of things.

    So that would be Frank and Helen's for lunch, Pappy's BBQ for dinner and Ted Drewes for custard after, right? I go out of my way when crossing the country just for one day of eating in St Louis.

    Big difference even at 21 v 28+. Vegas and Colorado game 7 chokes definitely hurts.
