Getzlaf showed up to camp last season in the best shape he's ever been according to reports and we all saw how that season went. Maybe a beer belly Getzy is better.

Rumor has it that Kurtis Foster is going to sign with the Flyers.

Is he going to replace Pronger?

Well, according to Eric Stevens, Penner was wearing a Ducks practice jersey. Maybe he didn't want anyone to see.

Just wait until somebody inevitably tweets "Bobby Ryan is available"

Ugh, I was thinking that earlier. If it happens, Murray better not **** around and just do it already. I'm just as sick of hearing that phrase as Bobby is.

I just put two and two together. Yesterday the Register said that Monday's practice was run by Scott Niedermayer. I wonder if that relates to why it was closed?

So the Ducks — at least the ones that are in town — are already ramping things up. Several players got together with a number of the Kings for workouts at Anaheim Ice last week and former captain Scott Niedermayer ran a practice session on Monday in place of the coaching staff that can't.

Not sure why there would be a relationship unless you thought BB was getting fired too.

On a technical note it would seem to me that Scotty shouldn't be coaching them either since he is an employee of the Ducks. While the lockout is still on there is to be no contact between the team and the players.

FWIW, I called again today and today's practice is also closed. I didn't try yesterday but it appears they will all be closed until camp formally opens.

I'm not sure what the reason could be either, but I was just thinking it is something that has changed that may warrant a change in having open/closed practices.

Is Scotty really an employee of the Ducks? Or is it just like a consulting type thing? That's an interesting point though. That grey area may have something to do with making it closed. Maybe we weren't even supposed to know that Scotty was leading it?

Well, then they sure should have kept out the press. Somebody posted the OCR blog complete with video of the Monday practice.

I don't think Scotty had a problem with it.

They probably got around the lockout, if It's not called a formal practice. They can't stop him from playing a pickup game.

If he is indeed an employee of the team he would be allowed no contact with any players during the lockout. That would include pickup games or even going to the movies together. My guess is he is a consultant. Much like Steve Fehr was a consultant to the NHLPA and not an actual employee of the NHLPA. And that (Fehr) was done specifically for legal reasons.

LeBrun and Friedman also confirmed it was 30-0 PA just needs a simple majority and then we're ready to go.

I like to think that they tried to stop him, and he said, "What are ya gonna do about it?"

Someone on the main board says that Sykora is close to signing with an NHL club. I'd be pretty happy bringing Petr back.
