You can draw some interesting parallels between that 07 Ducks team he helped build and our current team.

Built from the net out, elite defense, good mix of youth and vets.

Karlsson is our Niedermayer. Zibanejad and Silfverberg are our Perry/Getzlaf. Anderson is our Giguere. Alfie is our Selanne. Latendresse is our Penner (lol in a few different ways). Smith is our Rob Niedermayer or Sami Paulsson.

The big difference is Murray will get to see this one through. He needs to make his "Pronger" move, something that will put us over the top, the final piece. Instead of that being an elite defenseman, I think it'll be a scorer. He's been patient and stockpiled, the assets and cap space to do so. With the cap coming down, its going to be an opportune time to do so in the offseason.

Big things are on the horizon for this team. Thank you, Bryan, Tim and Pierre.
