    The Official 2019-2020 Anaheim Ducks Thread

    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?

    2019 Stanley Cup playoffs

    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.

    So, basically our chance at 20 is now very slim. Since, the four teams ahead of us are playing well and one will probably go to the conference finals. But, if a couple of them go on, San Jose's pick would move up to 23. So, that lessens the blow a little.

    I thought a team had to make it to the conference finals to change their draft order (two playoff wins).

    2019 Stanley Cup playoffs

    Let's see, I like Calgary. I can't hate a Johnny Hockey team. Toronto. I want to see Freddie A succeed and I like Matthews (or maybe I just want the not-a-generation player to shine while McDavid watches the playoffs). I like StLouis. But they have to lose so we get the 20th pick. That said, I would be ok with Tampa Bay winning it all.

    We have two things going for us at 9. First, obviously our scouting has an exceptional track record. Second, Edmonton moved ahead of us in the draft order, not Vancouver.

    More likely, 'If anyone should be complaining about a draft system that supports poor hockey operations management.' The systems better now. But could be vastly improved to stop screwing well run organizations.

    I was going to update it the next time the Ducks were in the Stanley Cup Finals. It could be a while.

    I think the guy from the state that got the #1 overall pick twice in 3 years has left his tin foil hat in the closet. I'm in California so I'll wear mine.

    It hurts to get #9 in a wasted season. But Colorado and LA, in a draft considered to drop off noticeably after the first 3 picks, got a gut kick.

    Lol. And the guy in the tin foil hat nails the prediction.

    Actually, I think it's more like 80-85 % probability including 2nd and 3rd pick chances. We'll see... You need to ask yourself one question Bob: Do you feel lucky?
