And yes, our defense is atrocious. Even our healthy and best defence is bad, but adding injuries and Sacco's incompetence and insistence on playing O'Byrne and Hunwick despite them being absolute nightmares makes matters even worse.

IMO our best possible D:

Wilson(#4)-Johnson(#2)
Hejda(#4-#5)-Barrie(#5-#6)
O'Brien(#5-#6)-Elliott(#6)

That would at least give us some offence from the back despite that most are not very good defensively (with Barrie, Elliott and Johnson the puck-movers).
But what we have now is Johnson, turnover-machine Hunwick and 4 pylons. And the pylons are almost equally as bad defensively as our young offensive-minded D but with no upside in offense.

And yeah, our D is in the bottom-5 for sure, might even be in the bottom-2.

We basically rely on Varlamov every game cause our D gives about 3-7 glorious chances every game to the opposition, and his stats are hurting because of it. And he still produces >.915 sv.% He's the only reason we are not 2-7.
This being the Ducks' board I won't go to futher detail about this stuff. You'll find lots of this over on our board.

Yeah, I've definitely noticed some questionable decisions on Sacco's part. I really like some of the Avalanche players like Duchene and Landeskog. I wish them the best every year.

oh and Jiggy of course!

I'm surprised they are not starting Jiggy since he always does so good against us.

You should see them live, they are much worse.

Should be because Fowler didn't travel with the team.

So glad to see Fasth getting rewarded for his awesome play. Hopefully the sends a message to Hiller to pick up his game or he won't be starting. The Ducks have a real back up now who is gonna push Hiller

Emerson Etem-Ryan Getzlaf-Corey Perry

Kyle Palmieri-Bobby Ryan-Teemu Selanne

Andrew Cogliano-Saku Koivu-Daniel Winnik

Matt Beleskey-Nick Bonino-Brad Staubitz

Sheldon Souray-Francois Beauchemin

Bryan Allen-Sami Vatanen

Luca Sbisa-Toni Lydman

From Stephens

Honestly, this is the lineup I've been waiting for since Etem's first game. It even has something to make Dirk happy.

Why is Vatanen still with Allen? And what are they going to do with Rakell?

^ was wondering the same thing myself.

Is it too much to ask that the powerplay looks like this?

Selanne-Getzlaf-Perry
Souray-Vatanen

Ryan-Koivu-Palmieri
Franky-Sbisa

Beleskey is not bad and he likely isn't the reason for our powerplay failures, but we have better options and there is absolutely no excuse for having selanne on PP2. Not even to have both units be an equal threat to score.

I think we'll be seeing Rakell sent down soon. I love the kids play, but there's no room for him. Bonino is a much better 4th line center at this point, and I don't see the coaching staff putting Rakell up there with the second line just yet.

I don't know why they're so insistent on playing him at center when he CAN play wing.

Nope, BB will tinker with it and take Selanne off the top unit replaced with Bonino, Beleskey, or Winnik. I'm calling Etem gets some PP time on that top unit today though.

Go Ducks!

Probably. The Avalanche should be a good team for Sami to play against too.
