Former Ducks thread

I couldn't find the old thread for this, it was many pages in anyways so might as well start a new one.

I don't get to write a lot about the NHL at work, with all Pitea natives being retired (Renberg, Holmstrom + Ohlund who isn't officially retired but well...).

However, I interviewed Jonathan Hedstrom on the phone today. Nice guy. We didn't talk anything about his time in the NHL so I won't bother sharing the story, although I did mention I'm a long time Ducks fan.

He might (although I assume unlikely) play for Pitea (in the 3rd highest league in Sweden) next season. If he signs, I'm sure I'll get to talk with him about his time in Anaheim at some point.

Will always remember this penalty shot:

Yeah I remember that goal. Hedstrom had a really nice stretch for a short period of time. Too bad he left.

Had lunch and a game of bowling with the players/coaches in Lulea today. Jonas Ronnqvist is the head coach, said he will be in Anaheim for the 20th anniversary cermony. Considering he only played 38 games for the club, I think you'll see a ton of former players there.

Big 6'5" Center David Steckel coming #MNWild camp on tryout. He's former 1st rounder w/ 450 #NHL reg/playoff gms & PK/FaceOff/D specialist.

BTW Foster is pylon at KHL level as well, and Ozolins can skate pretty well for a 41 y o.

He's got a great personality. Too bad the Ducks have such a crappy marketing department.

He'll be a fan favorite in a big hockey market.

EDIT: I hope in about 15 years he comes back to the Ducks and replaces a senile Brian Hayward. (he's senile now, but Bobby has a lot of hockey still to play).

Please tell me we don't have to wait 15 years. How about Teemu next year?

Is this the time we do the biannual revision of "would you undo the trade"?

Must be something about signing a long term contract that disagrees with his back. That's the second time now.

Long-term contract = really heavy contract. And you expect me to pick it up to sign it?
