Souray has been really good tonight. Allen, not so much. It seems they take turns having off games I guess its better than both of them playing badly. Sbisa looks a LOT better tonight too, and shouldn't be faulted on that first goal IMO.

4th line is looking really good. Does anybody think the Ducks will keep them up just as a 4th line? Or is it top 6 or nothing for those guys?

Crazy calls tonight, but the Ducks deserve this lead.

Last 20 minutes Ducks finish it strong!

Doesn't even kick in until next season. It was a bit risky, I think, because if Fowler struggles or doesn't hit that next level, it's a lot of cash. On the other hand, right now? He looks like he could end up a bargain. I think it was Murray's faith in Fowler, combined with his expected role(top pairing minutes, basically) that made it an easy choice for Murray.

Maybe it's Bobby that sucks, and not Bonino. Hrmm. Let's look at career goals, nah. That won't tell us anything. Let him have Saku, and I'll be happy. Bonino has NEVER shown that he's an NHL 2nd line center. I ain't dogging the guy, but he's more of a plug than an answer. That's for sure. Otherwise, just trade Ryan(for a legit 2nd line center-then we have no winger for Teemu).

He's already drastically improved defensively...He hasn't even began to tap into some of that huge offensive upside. I am excited!

I feel like Dave Jackson is giving us a make up game for what he did in Vancouver. What an awful ref.

According to a Flyers fan, today. We would have to add to him to get Couturier.

I'm not saying Bobby sucks, or that Bonino is better, please don't try and twist my words.

I'm saying the excuses for Bobby are getting laughable now. Apparently he needs the perfect conditions to be able to produce, which is absolute ******** for an apparent star player. Yes, Bonino as his center isn't ideal, but a player of his calibre should still be able to produce better then he currently is.

It might be a slight exaggeration, but he looks amazing out there. I don't know if anyone on our team is more valuable then him

His stick work and skating seem to go a long way in that regards, and when he gets a chance to clear, that seems to be exactly what happens.

I'd still like him to get stronger. Not necessarily bigger, but stronger in the way Scotty was, with that great leg and core strength that allowed him to go toe to toe with players bigger(often aided by his ridiculous skating). Basically, stronger in a way that shouldn't compromise his mobility at all.

Remember we used to tell people to get Getzlaf angry so he would turn it on? Now we gotta do it to Ryan, I miss when Ryan used to lay people out.

Cue the youtube of the Dodgeball scene please!
