I don't think we'll see him in Anaheim, but he looks a hell of a lot more effective than Sexton, who was frankly soft and clumsy. I think he could be the veteran centerman that they were hoping that Elkins could be.

Well, we are very thin at center in the first place, now especially when ***** goes out (And McMillan up).

And yeah, he doesn`t look so compared to Sexton for sure

Turnaround Article

In today's Pilot was a good article on what the Ads had to do to turn their season around. Some good insights on the coaches and what they did.

Like the article said "if we take a game off it costs us"/. So how much does it cost them when they take two games off like they did last night, It didnt cost them anything, except maybe more fans!!!!!!

Don't Know

Don't know about the fan issue. We are up about an average of 400 per game over last season.

They did take the night off last night. Outplayed in every aspect of the game. That's 2 points they will wish they had come the end of the season.

Hope they have their collective heads screwed on straight for tonight. We need the 2 points desperately.

Wilson and Devo look like they're developing some chemistry.

Sami has been pretty brutal on defense so far.

He has been playing well since we sent him back.

Edit: Just don't expect him back this season.

Todd Marchant is at the game. He said he'll be heading off to scout our kids in the OHL playoffs.

He says our team reminds him a lot of the '07 team.

Ooph, Sami just gave up a shorthanded breakaway and set a Phantom loose for a free shot on Andersen.

Exit Dose, can you give us some insight of lines there?

PS
Looks like we`re dominating the shots in this game. 29 vs 16

You're probably better off getting it from their Twitter account. I haven't been paying close attention to the line combos. I've noticed that Devo is spending a lot of time with Maroon and Wilson. I've seen a few different guys with Vatanen. Looked like Lindholm is spending most of his time with Clark at even strength. Also, I think Wagner is on a line with Caputi.

I've noticed in the last few games that Lindholm is shooting the puck. He's got a decent shot. He's looking pretty comfortable on offense, and jumping up more.

Yep. Passed Holland with the goal. Maroon is right on his heels though

Really bad, on par with that Avs game.

Hey all, just looking or some information on Smith-Pelley. I remember quite a bit of hype last year that he may be ready for a top-6 role with the Ducks this year or the next.
What's his projection at this point? Has he regressed to being 3rd liner material, or is he still destined for a top-6 role? What's his offensive potential? 20-20 guy?

Thanks

He has had a sophmore slump. I don't think any Ducks fan would deny that. However, he's still 20, and is starting to play better in the AHL. No one should give up on him because if he ever figures it out he could be a hitting machine. Personally, I think his offensive tools were overrated by some Ducks fans last year. I see him as a 3rd liner with hopefully a couple 20-20 season. I do not see him as a 60 point winger at all. The bottom line with DSP is that if he isn't hitting, he just isn't very good. I hope he realizes that by next year and earns a spot on our 4th line
