Man Grabo would have been such a great pick up for us at 2nd line center, he looks freaking amazing this year.

Would love to see a deal for Mark Fayne, a steady underrated dman who's right-handed to boot. One year left at 1.3, I'm thinking NJ would be ok with Larsson, Greene, Volchenkov, Salvador, Zidlicky, Urbom, Harrold, Gelinas, Merrill.

Could see them asking for a first, but perhaps other futures could get a deal done. Something around Karlsson perhaps? Would hate to see him dealt but a blueliner is a must right now.

Absolutely pathetic that we signed Penner. Should have gone for Grabo. The one ****ing thing we didn't need was wingers, and that's what we paid most in free agency for. Murray... Fml

If there is a problem with that signing it's with who it was and not the position he plays. We needed a LW last year. We need players in our top six that have more than promise.

Disagree somewhat but i understand your point. Regardless though, IMO the needs for the team went as follows: defense, center, winger, defense.

Penner was a bad signing IMO because: 1. We needed a defenseman or center with that money. 2. Penner isn't any safer then Palmieri.

In addition I am stunned we didn't bring back Lydman instead of Fistric. That was another mistake.

Maroon is a left handed shot who can score and play physically. He is a good match to play with Getzlaf and Perry.

Penner still looks like he counting time on the ice. The goal he scored was the result of a perfect pass and Penner got lucky. I would much prefer seeing Maroon on the first line. It may take a little time for him to fit in with Getz and Perry. It doesn't look like it has worked with Penner.

Sure. Let's turn our focus to how every team in the NHL is 10x tougher than us.

This.

I've been accused of overreacting to bad play from Bobby Ryan, Luca Sbisa, and Jonas Hiller, but nothing compares to the *****ing going on on this board the last two weeks about Penner not looking good in a few preseason games. I just don't get why you guys can't wait 5 games and then start praising/complaining. At least my complaints about Sbisa, Ryan, and Hiller were after a handful of regular season games...sheesh.

Well...in fairness, the only Penner bashing I do is just pointing out that it's troubling that he's already in Boudreau's doghouse. I still pencil him in on the top line since the whole reason he's here is Getzlaf and Perry wanted him to be. They're gonna at least try it.

If it works, great.

If it doesn't, try him on a different line.

If that doesn't work, try to trade him for a bag of pucks.

If that doesn't work, stick him in the press box.

It's a one year commitment. His days as a Duck are numbered whether he produces or not.

I'm not sure if he is in BB's doghouse. It could just be that he likes Palmieri up there. We'll see what happens. We're a better team if Penner plays well though, so I'll root for him.

Yeah...pretty much my feeling. The signing was cheap. If he doesn't work there's no need to get panties in a wad. It's entirely possible that Grabovski didn't want to come here. In fact, I think I remember reading he wanted to stay in the East. People get too hung up on "look how cheap he signed" without considering that money isn't all that factors into where a player signs. Derek Roy straight up didn't want to come here.

What I think i'll like about penner is he won't be afraid to get in front on the PP, seems like most of our guys aren't really willing to do that

it's ridiculous i prefer to just wait and see where he is after 10-20 games. if he truly sucks its not a big ****ing deal it's a 1 year contract if one of these kids pushes him out great i want the best team we can field, i want to see if he will be used in front of the net on the PP we've lacked that presence of late and he could help there

I hate the toughness complaints more than the penner complaints. Mostly because there is no one way to fix an average "rank" of toughness for the team.

We need a solid scoring 2nd line, win faceoffs, and have a solid defense. Our 1st line is going to be our physical line, between our top two lines. Our second line needs to have speed. (I am sick of slow duck hockey since the andy mac line left).

We can get some physical dmen, but then sbisa, sourray, and allen need to be gone. Thats not easy or possible in some cases.

We can grab some physical winger to throw on the 4th line... but then people will comolain Etem loses his spot... or complain selanne and penner are taking the spots of 2 goons.

Haven`t seen highlights yet, but as far as i read in local media, he was just lucky in most of episodes. Must have been listening to Daft Punk a lot
I have no idea how his overall game looked, but i`d prefer him over Penner for sure. At least for now.
