Boudreau: Ducks can finish 11-0

“It can be done,” he told the OC Register. “Until I look and do the math and we’re six points out with two games to go or things like that, we’re going to fight and see where it leads.”

But tanking is what teams with real character do

On a positive note making NHL headlines and TV headlines Emerson Etem 60 goals in 62 games. What a player

Ducks can finish 11-0. It's just unlikely unless they get a huge boost due to beating the Red Wings and go on a roll.

It is possible, but even when Ducks are clearly playing better than the opposition, bounces might not go our way and we lose the game. One of these and swoosh, there goes the playoffs.

Can't really say much else tbh. I like BB, I'm really interested to see what happens in the off-season and what sort of TC he runs.

The Ducks CAN go 11-0.

I CAN win the lottery.

Will either happen? Most likely not.

I somehow start to see Anaheim Ducks organization as some circus show.

1 game at a time. It's possible but one game at a time, and switch up the bottom 3 forwards on a regular basis to keep them on their toes and playing well

Going 11-0 doesn't secure a playoff spot.

Finishing with 93 points almost gurantees it this season.

What do you want BB to say? Seriously.

The only circus at the moment is some of the fans on these boards, it's getting ridiculous

Go for it Bruce. I'll be happy as long as they go at least 7-4.

Play inspirational music in the locker room before every game to help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4Uv_4jGgAM


...and, take it one game at a time. Ignore the win streak, it's just 1 game after 1 game. If you think about it you'll let up and lose your chance at playoff revenues and a freak of nature 8th seeded mad dash to the final [Edmonton 2006, anyone?].

At least someone does! What else is he gonna say? Always finish strong, all the pro-tanking posters on these boards drive me insane.

Yeah okay Bruce this is the same team that won like 1 game in November.

I guess I like the belief though. Too ****en bad the team gave away two months.

why would we want to go to 11-0 and still not make the playoffs?

Because none of the players on the team give a rat's ass about a high draft pick, and any players who ARE complacent about losing need to be shipped out of town.

Look in the mirror and say these words "Real hockey players don't tank".

Management is another debate, but the players are playing for their jobs next year.

93 points will almost certainly make the playoffs this year.
