I realize that, but I just thought that it was interesting.

#27
#35
#20

For short term time with Ducks you have to throw in #77 Oates. The best passer to ever wear a Ducks uniform.
The only way #9 is retired is if Bobby Ryan becomes a lifetime Duck

As of now, I would agree.

The retiring of a number is pretty much the best way an organization can show it's gratitude toward a player for his service to their team.

With the way the whole Kariya thing went down, do you honestly believe the organization would extend that honor to him?

For me, I don't.

For me, I don't.
I do, I mean in reality he told the Ducks he wanted to come back but he was a free agent. He had the rights to choose where ever he wanted to go.
Also, you can put some of the blame on Teemu. I am sure I will get flamed for this and don't get me wrong Teemu is one of my favorite players of all time but he had a huge influence on where Kariya went and he and Kariya sat down and Teemu wanted to go to Colorado to win a cup. He could have easily come to Anaheim and Kariya would have signed here too. God who knows maybe we signed Fedorov too and had one of the best lines in NHL history.
Kariya-Fedorov-Teemu would have been nasty.
So you can't pull all the blame on Kariya. He's no Schultz.

Can we please take all the Kariya discussion to the specific thread where it was already beat to death? Let's not re-start it here.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, somebody brings up the Kariya thing on here at least every 6 months

But since April of this year it has it's own home, so maybe it can stay tightly wound in it's own cocoon?

I kind of disagree that Giguere was key in the 07 run. I really think we would have won with Bryz.

The Detroit series would tend to disagree. That series was too close for our goalie to not be Giguere. If Giguere isn't the best goalie in that series, it's very possible the Ducks don't make it to the Cup Finals. The bottom line is that the 2007 team had a tendency to take the occasional game, or period off. Giguere was instrumental in surviving the onslaught, and giving the team a chance to wake up, and the number of one goal games that Anaheim was able to win is a testament to not just the defense, but the goaltending.

I actually think that Giguere was okay in the 07' playoffs and I would tend to agree that Bryz could have won it for us as well.
Now don't get me wrong, in 03' Giguere was ridiculous and deserved is number retired just in that season!

Game 5 is really the strongest point for Giguere, but Niedermayer and Pronger + the shutdown line really helped him out.

I don't agree that the Detroit series was as close as people think. Detroit got SHELLED in game 6. The reason it ended up being a close game was because the Ducks were on the Penalty Kill almost entirely for the last 10 minutes of the game.

I actually think the Vancouver series was tougher. The Ducks could have easily been down 3-1 in that series DUE to Gigueres goal tending.

Really? They would have been down 3-1 because of Gigueres goal-tending even though he only allowed 7 goals in the first four games and outplayed Luongo who most regarded as the best goalie in the league at that point.

And Giguere was huge in the Detroit series, we don't win that with Bryzgalov in net. Without his game 5 effort, Anaheim doesn't have a cup.

Exactly. And I'll add that Giguere was great in game 4 of the finals, especially in the first two periods.

I also think that he was a great leader off the ice. After the Ducks lost games 1 and 2 on the road in NJ, people were saying the Ducks had no business being in the SCF, it was Giguere, not the Ducks captain, who stood in front of the media and defended his team, saying they were a good team and deserved to be there.

And in 2007, during game 4 of the finals, Giguere stood up in the lockerroom between periods after the Ducks were being horribly outplayed by the Sens, and must have said something to the team. Whatever he said, along with the other team leaders, resonated with them because they played much better after that and went on to win. Todd Marchant recounted what happened on the Ducks Stanley Cup DVD. He said after the game, on the team bus, Giguere asked him if he went overboard and Marchant told him no, it was a wake up call and he said what needed to be said. And on the same DVD, Teemu said he was just warrior and the he was so proud of that guy and Rob said he (Giguere) was a guy you want in your foxhole. I don't think there was any question in the team's mind who their #1 goalie was at that time.
