Ryan is. The fact that he spent some of his childhood here doesn't seem to have much bearing in how much we draw at the gate.

Tell me, if being a local kid so important, why did we draft Rakell over Grimaldi?

Prove it or you are just grasping at straws.

This. I played roller with Rocco for 3 years and he is a great hockey player and a great guy as well as being from the Inland Empire and Orange County. Perfect guy to market around. If the Owners were as persuasive as you think then he would be a Ducks prospect.

Murray is in control of this team.

Look the Ducks were planning to draft Etem 12th overall but due to Fowler falling they didn't even have a jersey made up for him. Etem had a jersey made and it was a slam dunk draft. Murray had emphasis in his voice when he called him up in the Staples center every ducks fan there was high fiving and STOKED.

Luckily the Ducks marketing team and the scouts agreed Etem was the perfect target to bring even more hockey to so cal, and even if the marketing team didnt participate in the selection....well they have a gold mine that fell in their lap.

Dont you think they would have traded up into the second to get Rocco if the local aspect was as large as you think.

I really think you are putting too much stock into it.

Yes, I do think they'll listen to Murray. He's the general manager. If they didn't have any faith in him, they would replace him.

As for you "knowing" it to be true, no, you don't. You can't. So don't claim otherwise. The Ducks probably won't trade him, but if the right deal came along? They absolutely would.

Ottawa will give you Zibanejad (last year's 6th overall) for that pick, then flip both the 6 overall and 15 (probably) overall this year to Edmonton for number 1.
Ottawa gets Yakupov, Edmonton can draft Matt Dumba, Reinhart, or some other D-Man with Anaheim's pick, plus get another solid pick at 15.

I have my doubts that you'd get Edmonton to go for that, but you could probably get the 6th overall for Zibanejad.

Luke Schenn+35th overall for 6th overall?

Leafs draft 1 of Forsberg/Galchenyuk and 1 of Murray/Dumba

edit: I know Schenn is not a #2 center, but I didn't want to make a new thread

That only happens if our scouts want nothing to do with this draft.

I would be open to this assuming we cannot get a more established guy. I doubt the Oilers would be open to that though.

We really dont need help NOW on defense. I would rather draft a defender then trade it for Schenn.

Yeah, because that never happens when a team drafts a kid in the first round. Usually they are annoyed at having to work on the weekend and it shows. Good catch.

Please explain how he is a goldmine. What will the team do and how will it translate into money for the team? Have you spoken to the marketing team? Please enlighten us.

Some of Ducksgo and Occupy posts on this local boy thing are cracking me up. Give it a rest guys, you're putting way too much onto this local boy stuff.

Shall have a good chuckle when there is no major boost in ticket sales when/if Etem becomes a Ducks regular.

I'd take a winning team over local talents every day of the week, and twice on Sundays!

That's pretty funny. Bottom pairing D + 2nd rd. pick for 6th overall. Good luck with that.
