Good God. Ryan at center, DSP in the lineup, Lydman on the bench. Puzzling moves in my opinion.

DSP, Vatanen and Etem in?! Great! Haven't been this excited since the season-opener. Wouldn't be surprised if the young guys won this game for us!

Ryan as the second line center? I don't like it
Well Ryan isn't doing much this season on the wing. Beside, I am sure if it doesn't work, BB will mix things up again and move Bonino back up to the second line after the 1st period.

For me, excited would mean I have no idea what to expect tonight type of excitement. I would be surprised if one of the youngings won us the game because all this juggling makes it a little bit difficult to develop chemistry. Consistency lends to a calculated evaluation. A little tinkering is always expected. Injury replacements are also expected. Line juggling to line juggle just to push rookies could mean our veterans suck that bad.

Vatanen needs a look so Lydman sits, no big deal. If Vatanen performs well for more than one game, Lydman will be the one on the trading block.

Edit: I'd also play 7 D, and scratch DSP.

I'm actually excited for tonight's lineup, I can't wait to see how Vatanen looks, and I still think Ryan has huge potential at center.

Anyone else feel the same?
actually yeah i do...i think with sammy, if you pull allen it jacks up the pairings unless you want to go lydman/fowler souray/beach sbisa/vatz, otherwise you change just about every pairing and i would much rather souray in...w/bobby i have always felt he should be a C (or maybe just we need him to be) but i think he can do it, and also teemu can take all the draws...he does the same thing on every F/O but it freaking works

i think it sucks too but IMO i want palmi/ryan playing together...i think rakell will get a look at 2C before being sent back (if he is sent back, its going to be a very hard decision).

First beer of the night, I can't wait for this game to start. The poster with a man crush on Vatanen has me excited to see him live.

Agreed. The only thing I'd change is that I'd play Lydman and scratch Souray instead and give Vatanen his PP time.

First time someone mentioned this. Everyone is so worked up about who's in tonight, when we play less than 24 hours later. We need some fresh legs for tomorrows game, and maybe Lydman and Rakell match up better against the queens than against the wild in BB's mind.

What the hell are these lines...

The message seems to be, perform well, play a good game, throw it into the dryer, see what flies out. More DSP, diarrhea already. Rakell was great against the Sharks.

Would be a big W tonight. For some reason I keep thinking we're going to start tanking much like we did last year after the first 5-6 games.

In honor of one of our longstanding favorite prospects having his first game tonight, I thought I'd take a break from ghosting the forums and actually post. Sami is my favorite Ducks prospect and has been since he was drafted. His attitude, his work ethic, his love of the Ducks, and his great potential despite his small(ish) stature have endeared him to most of us here the past few years. Tonight he gets to play his first game in the NHL alongside two of the Finnish greats. Seeing him finally suit up for our team is going to be a treat tonight regardless of how he performs.

We weren't tanking last year. We were just terrible.

Has anyone noticed that the Ducks are #2 in shots against? Sadly they're 2nd to last in shots for, but at least they're on the positive side.

Wicked siked to see Vatanen play tonight.

Not feeling too confident game-wise, but pumped for #45.

I can understand why they put DSP out there instead of Rakell. With Minnesota having Clutterbuck, they probably prefer throwing out a bit "beefier" lineup, to match Minny.

Well, they did limit San Jose to 20 shots, which is at least moving in the right direction.

Would make more sense against the Kings. Minnesota just isn't very physically intimidating up front.

Since when has DSP been physically imposing?
