Must take advantage of the Butler-Wideman pairing. Also, it looks like their talent is all spread out. If we play them hard, our talent should outpace theirs.

Hope Bonino improves over last game's performance. I don't think he SUCKED, but he was just barely capable in the role.

I think Ryan was the biggest underachiever on the second line. Bonino did ok, made some nice passes and defensive plays. Tried to be involved also. But i agree - i would like to see a little bit more from him.

I think in the first game, underachievers were Perry, Ryan and Devo. Let`s hope they`ll make a difference in this game!

So Cam is expected to be back in the line-up? Does that change the #1 PP unit?

I would think so. Gotta give Souray-Fowler a try.

I agree with this. Ryan and Devo really weren't noticeable. And for players like them, they kind of need to make an impact to be effective. Perry was kind of meh to me. I don't think he necessarily played really poorly, but he certainly wasn't the Perry that everyone knows as a dominant force.

Here's to hoping that everyone shows up and plays hard tonight. Get off to a good start, Calgary played yesterday so come out of the gates hard and don't let up.

Let's go Ducks!

I heard them say last game that Scott Niedermayer was working with Fowler to be a rover on the PP. I'd love to see Getzlaf feeding Souray on the points, with Fowler Selanne and Perry down low.

I hope so. Then we can hopefully see Getzlaf closer to the half wall than the point. I really don't like having him back there... Even if the power play did score in Vancouver, it didn't have much to do with him.

I always find it funny how the European fans have to stay up so late to watch the games. You guys pretty much picked the worse possible team, as we play later than all but 3 other teams in the NHL. haha

Take a nap before the game!

Anyone as good as Getzy will make a couple good plays from time to time no matter where they are on the ice. I just think that he would be much more effective and the power play would be better served with him down a little lower in the offensive zone.

If i`d go back for a normal day routine, i`d rather watch games at 5.am and then do my daly works, than stay up until 2.am when the game only starts... and goes until 5am.
(I suppose that goes to Finland and Latvia)

But that wasn`t anywwhere near the reasons i picked the Ducks.

Yeah I do agree with you, I was just teasing. I think BB's reasoning for putting him on the point is to get the puck to Souray and with Fowler potentially roaming, someone needed to go back there. Getzlaf would be the obvious choice between Perry and Selanne. I wouldn't be surprised if its back to normal in a couple games, but at least they're trying something new, I guess.

Ehh dredger thinks he's gonna have a career year this year due to shorten schedule and trade rumours. Per NHL Live right now on NHL Network. We gotta control Iggy

That's how we won the cup! Bombs off the point! And Grit with Nieds and Moen. DAMN do I miss Scott cheating ways involving him in the play down low..... God wtf man! The Detroit game comes to mind when he tied it and Selanne finished it. Anyone remember?!?!?

Yea, I figured. Honestly, having him back there isn't a terrible notion given how well he passes and how hard he can shoot the puck. But since he never shoots the puck, he seems to have a hard time keeping it in the zone, and having a forward back there probably makes us a bit more susceptible to short handed rushes up ice; I'd be much happier with someone else (namely a dman) back there.
