Yep, probably.... and that's the part I agree with you on. But you can have a dumb Detroit fan who has always lived in Detroit and a good Detroit fan who has always lived in Garden Grove is what I'm getting at

Basing being a good fan or bad fan based on location isn't good.

Love the Ducks, but has never been to Anaheim, or been to a game to see them.

Would you keep RPG together?
If I had a say? No, but I've never liked the RPG line. Ryan has always felt like a fifth wheel there. I'd probably feel more comfortable with Palmieri there.

I'm not against making some tweaks. I'm against making them just because we had an off game, or changing for the sake of change. I think there are areas we can be better in, and I think we can get more out of our lines. Mostly, I think we need to play as much 5-on-5 as possible. That's our game.

Well said. It will be interesting to see what adjustments (if any) Bruce makes.

I think youre missing her point.

With a bigger, more popular fanbase there are naturally going to be more uneducated, "casual" if you will fans. I've lived in New York my entire life, have literally no connections whatsoever to the Ducks franchise, but have supported them since I was 5. The first game I watched was Ducks-Rangers and I liked Selanne. Does it make me less of a fan because I haven't been to Anaheim and only seen them play on the road on the East Coast? Id take my knowledge of the team against 99% of the people at the Honda Center.

Either Palms/Beleskey with the twins. The one shot Beleskey wiffed on when he was alone in the slot, a bit better pass and that is a goal he has gotten a couple times. He knows his role is just to get into the slot.

I think Getzlaf and Perry have a better work ethic with someone of lesser skill than Ryan. They seem much more content to endlessly cycle with no attack with Ryan on the line, but I notice with Getzlaf especially that hes more directly offensive with a different line mate. Case in point his goal and the setup pass that Beleskey fumbled ( a goal I remember him scoring a few times on the exact same setup from Getz this season). I like RPG at times because when all 3 are engaged its dominant, but I think it's run its course. PPG has gotten the best results, Id stick with it.

What if we just peeled it first? Could we get 8 slices out of one orange? Then we would only need two of 'em.

Good point.

Just remember - when you sneak the oranges into the arena in your pants, put them in front, not in the rear.

It would actually be cool if an orange is thrown on to the ice. But i imagine it going forward and ending up like this:






PS
So DeKeyser (sp?) broke his finger in collision with Palms.
It`s not official, but i think Palms beard could do that damage

**** it im sold, from here on out we throw 16 oranges on the ice to symbolize teh 16 games a team must win to get the cup.... also make sure to time it perfect ie: winning 2-1 but your team ices the puck and you have a team full of tired players.
