Ducks sign Bodie, Rosehill, and Parent
 
Per ducks website

http://ducks.nhl.com/club/m_news.htm?id=650738

Haven't seen any news about this on our forum and thought I would share. If mods think this info should go elsewhere go ahead :)

Pretty stoked we got Bodie though.

Elvs 01-17-2013 12:33 PM

Not too surprising. I think the Ducks only had 43 players under contract before, and that's including Gibson and Rakell who aren't AHL eligible. I'm more surprised they would give those three contracts but not Rod Pelley, but maybe he's still trying to negotiate a 1-way deal...

DarthYenik 01-17-2013 01:18 PM

Good to see Bodie back.

Dirk316 01-17-2013 05:33 PM

Hopefully this means PL3 gets recalled and plays on the 4 th line

On the Ducks? We don't need an enforcer. We need guys that are good at hockey

Cool opinion I respectfully disagree 100%

With Westgarth shipped out, who are the remaining heavyweights in the Pacific? I've lost track.

I tend to agree PL3 should be up with the main club for games as needed. Edmonton in particular with all the crap Sutton has pulled the last few games (no, not for Schultz before anyone gets all stupid about it :shakehead)

Kings have none lots of middleweights, sj has Mcclaren, Phx Bizznasty, Dallas has the softest team in the league. The Ducks should take advantage of this just like they used to in the past and force teams to adapt not the other way around

Corey Perry* 01-17-2013 06:55 PM

We need guys like Travis Moen, not fighters.

Nice input

It's good to have organization depth in the pugilist department...plus it's not like these guys cost too much.

Exit Dose 01-18-2013 01:19 AM

Kurtz is still my favorite of the bunch.

Kevin Forbes 01-18-2013 10:26 AM

Just for fun, top 30 players last year in major penalties:
Code:

1        Brandon Prust        NYR        20
2        Shawn Thornton        BOS        20
3        Derek Dorsett        CBJ        19
4        Zenon Konopka        OTT        19
5        Cody McLeod        COL        18
6        Jared Boll        CBJ        18
7        Zac Rinaldo        PHI        16
8        Matt Martin        NYI        15
9        Brad Staubitz        MIN, MTL        15
10        Tim Jackman        CGY        14
11        Ryan Reaves        STL        14
12        Mike Rupp        NYR        13
13        Stu Bickel        NYR        12
14        Krystofer Barch        DAL, FLA        12
15        Matt Hendricks        WSH        11
16        Jamal Mayers        CHI        11
17        Kyle Clifford        LAK        11
18        Chris Thorburn        WPG        11
19        George Parros        ANA        11
20        Wayne Simmonds        PHI        10
21        Gregory Campbell        BOS        10
22        Chris Neil        OTT        10
23        Mike Brown        TOR        10
24        Ryane Clowe        SJS        9
25        Dale Weise        VAN        9
26        Jake Dowell        DAL        9
27        Eric Boulton        NJD        9
28        B.J. Crombeen        STL        9
29        Cam Janssen        NJD        9
30        David Clarkson        NJD        8

Again, just for fun, filtering that same list down to Western Conference teams:
Code:

1        Derek Dorsett        CBJ        19
2        Cody McLeod        COL        18
3        Jared Boll        CBJ        18
4        Brad Staubitz        MIN, MTL        15
5        Tim Jackman        CGY        14
6        Ryan Reaves        STL        14
7        Krystofer Barch        DAL, FLA        12
8        Jamal Mayers        CHI        11
9        Kyle Clifford        LAK        11
10        George Parros        ANA        11
11        Ryane Clowe        SJS        9
12        Dale Weise        VAN        9
13        Jake Dowell        DAL        9
14        B.J. Crombeen        STL        9

Finally, filtering that down by Western Conference playoff teams
Code:

1        Ryan Reaves        STL        14
2        Jamal Mayers        CHI        11
3        Kyle Clifford        LAK        11
4        Ryane Clowe        SJS        9
5        Dale Weise        VAN        9
6        B.J. Crombeen        STL        9

I dunno, all those quantities are pretty much half the other ones. It doesn't look like teams that have more fighters do any better or worse than teams that have fewer fighters.

Did it matter for the Kings playoff run that Clifford had 11 majors? Did it matter for the Colorado missing the playoffs that Cody McLeod had 18 majors?

I think there are more important questions to be answered for the Ducks, before debating whether the fourth line guy who plays 6 minutes a game should be skilled at punching people in the face.

These signings are a depth move, nothing more. If any of Bodie, Rosehill and Letourneau-Leblond see action in more than 20 games over this shortened season, then that is an indication that Ducks have a bit of a bigger problem than team toughness.

Paul4587 01-18-2013 03:50 PM

I think we need a lot more toughness in our bottom 6 but more along the lines of a Travis Moen or Paul Gaustad types of player, not so much just a pure goon although I would prefer if we carried a decent heavyweight as the 13th forward.

Everlong 01-18-2013 04:13 PM

Just want to give you guys some background on Rosey. Great team guy, always looking out for his teammates He is one of the better technical fighters. Maybe not quite a heavy-weight, but he can handle his own against the big boys.


Not just a pure fisticuffs player though. He skates hard, and has the bodycheck down to an art. Doesn't go out of his way to land a big hit but when he does, watch out. The big knock on him is getting carried away and taking stupid slashing/crosschecking penalties. You'll love him one night, and hate him the next hah.

Better than your constant goon fetish BS. Seriously, guys with skill and grit (like a Travis Moen type), are what I think we have needed. Hopefully Winnik and DSP can provide that grit to the bottom 6 this year.

Frazer McLaren and Paul Bissonnette. LA will not repeat, it was a fluke, it all came together at the right time.

Rosehill and Leblond can play hockey fine, quit hating.

Depth of course like these type of signings always are.. Getting few tougher guys in the organization is imo better than none... it keeps the other teams on their toes... plus less cheapshots hopefully against our team(s). You don't always have to drop the gloves, just the presence of some player in your lineup that can give you "pain day" is a IMO a plus...and we have now few "nutcases" to do it...Parros wasn't good at giving punishment when needed...only "show/staged fights". Also in Anaheim market fights gets people to crowd (I think)... just look at some "power players" ice girls comments...lot of them seem to be liking fights :D and Dirk likes them too :D

Elvs 01-19-2013 03:38 AM

Oh yes, clearly we are in trouble...


ninetynine* 02-06-2013 01:05 PM

Rosehill and Leblond are no worse than Staubitz, and unlike Staubitz are legit heavyweights. Stupid move having him in instead.

Rookie mistake.

Really? I thought Staubitz looked pretty good last game.. And I don't think I'm alone in thinking this either.

ninetynine* 02-06-2013 04:49 PM

Maybe speed-wise, but statistically Parros was and is light-years ahead of him. I can't see Staubitz getting too much time if Parros didn't, although Staubitz is playing tonight. Staubitz has zero hockey sense unfortunately and you'll see him take very stupid penalties. Also not defensively responsible, one thing he does do well is hit but like I said he's very risky and takes a lot more minors than Parros did as you'll find out soon. I like him, but I think Belesky does a better job at his role and a heavyweight like Rosehill or Leblond in Staubitz' roster spot would be more helpful to the Ducks this year. Make other teams play your game.

As DuckJet said (thought I think he was joking):

Rookie Mistake.
