Plus it is only his second game. He has to have time to settle into the nhl. He is playing well defensively which means that AV will give him minutes.

I haven't seen him at all really. AV strikes again! One bad shift back to 4th line.

Kassian is 21. Better get used to it.

Power forwards are notoriously slow developers.

i noticed him doing some good screening in front of the net but nobody got it there.

he almost always parks himself in front of the net so if you dont see him, its cuz nobody is getting the puck there

I really like what I see from Schreodor

He makes a good play everytime, he hasn't taken a shift off yet, I think his speed is awesome and his skating makes up for his size, which in asia is considered actually above average

Tanev is our best defenseman

Garrison is underwhelming so far, jury is still out

Schneider working on a shu.................. phewwww almost said it

People keep mentioning this, but when he returned from that back injury, he was incredible, and then went silent.

If you look back to last year he was scoring alot when he came back, so much so he won me over, then he disappeared.

If he keeps it up i will be fully on board.

Seems like the Ducks are desperately trying to get back to being a nastier more intimidating team, and it's resulting in alot of dirty, dangerous play.

You gotta love the enthusiasm from their fans (our fans can take some notes), but they're being pretty idiotic in terms of knowing what the right/wrong call is, IMO.

He definitely looks like he has an extra gear when streaking down the ice, and he isn't just hiding out on the perimeter all game either.

Outside of the Sedins and Kassian, he has been our best forward.

Looks like we will have to delete the Kassian appreciation thread ASAP.

i like how smart schroeder is with his stick, always down on the ice ready to accept a pass on a breakout or offensive situation, always swinging it around in a defensive situation forcing lower percentage passes

Getzlaf is already known as a somewhat dirty player, along with Perry, but this is just stupid.

Watching the Ducks feed and they decided to let a little kid do the Cam Fowler interview during the intermission. His pressing question--how many of Cam Fowler's teeth are real

Sedins were the only people who did anything last year playoffs.

22 year old powerforward. It's okay to see lulls in his play.

Not really standing out but neither are the Sedins outside of that 5-on-3. That said, it's not as if he's playing badly. I think expectations are too high after the last two games.

Well it doesn't really help when none of our forward lines had any real pressure in the offensive zone in the first.
