That might be a little harsh.

It was a very bad series of acts that TS did ( the horrendously bad pass, going down to the ice in the defensive zone), and I will agree his speed and stamina are not anywhere near what we're used to, but his passing ability is still off the charts...as his dish to Beleskey attests too.

My point exactly. That pass would of been better as a shot BLOCKED than a stupid pass by Selanne.

I think it will have a negative effect... he will be sleeping in his own bed tonight and tomorrow ready to go Monday with a few thousand fans there just to see him..
Well, it wouldn't happen until Perry got back. I just think he looks fatigued. He's making a lot of mental errors.

He was over-played last game almost 20 minutes.... That's just too much to ask of him...

Whatever Selanne needs to nutt up or shut up. We're trying to win a fing cup here. Get your balls back Selanne. You have season ticket holders and international fans depending on you. Get your **** together.

You are probably one of those people who boo your own teams players

I really liked BMac, tonight.

Etem is so ****ing close. He and Fowler need to stop breaking mirrors as part of their warm up.

Etem is taking on roles we never expected. Kid is a studd and will BE a legend in Anaheim. Give him respect and time to make his way up to 2nd line status.

Yes, the mistake tonight was a bad decision, but his biggest problems are out of his control. His age is just flat out catching up to him and along with the schedule, has impacted pretty much all facets of his game. That is why I wouldn't mind seeing him hang up the skates after this year, if he continues to struggle. I just don't want to see him come back and be a shell of his former self. I can't imagine he'll want to play in that case either.

Lastly, I'm sorry if I may have offended anyone with my complaints/opinions of Teemu. I can assure you it's not out of lack of respect for him. I just feel no player is exempt from criticism because I value the success of the Ducks as a team more than as individuals. Therefore, if a game or two off will help him, I'm all for it.

My opinions don't need an editor. If it's worthy of an infraction, give one.

Like I said, Selanne has apparently been saving this team's ass since before Ducksgo was born. He has about 1000 mulligans in the bag before he deserves any crap.

So then he will quaify for the same **** you are giving Teemu, when he (Etem) makes a bad play? It's one thing to be critical of mistakes. It's another to act like you are towards Teemu.

As for the rest of the guys tonight. I only really thought Lovejoy had a bad night. Getz, Fowler, and the 3rd line were GREAT. Everybody else had a pretty good night overall.

This is rather over the top. He's either sick or worn out. Players aren't skating away from him or catching him from behind because he's got no balls, it's because he's fatigued. My concern is he's ineffective right now, probably cost the team a point with a poorly thought out and executed play (which isn't like him), and most importantly - is going to be at greater risk of injury if he's really as worn down as he appears to be. Healthy Teemu for April/May >>>> offending a few fans.

I think everyone is drunk tonight... if not, there is something wrong with you.

observations..

impressed with Holland for once as well ad BMac.... and Steckel I thought was good in his debut. Liked his hands a few times. Etem, continues to impress with speed.

Teemu.... love ya man, but let's be real guys.. he's done. Not only is he ineffective, but he's begun to become a liability, too ( and no, not just talking about the final play). As others have said, when Perry returns, he needs to start sitting... every 3rd game or so for rest.. that might help.
