That's at least 4 goals tonight. Plus whatever they can manage legitimately.
I think this will be a great game as most Ducks vs Sharks games really are. It's in our house and we really need this win for the confidence to make a run. Beating a top team in the league even if they are struggling is a big deal and great for the confidence of the team. Plus, we should be very rested.
If by some miracle the Ducks make the playoffs they've got a 50/50 chance of playing the Sharks. Trading a valuable checker to your potential playoff opponent is questionable at best.
I'd agree if the Ducks were true contenders. At this point, Moen doesn't make the Sharks that much better than us than they already were. Like giving spinach to Popeye in a deathmatch with Steve Urkel. Who frickin cares?

The only concern would be on the Sharks side, if he was in their lineup.
I predict 5-1 Sharks. Should have been 5-2 but the refs disallowed a goal because Getzlaf sneezed on the goalie as Perry shot the puck, Getzlaf gets called for goalie interference and the Sharks score on the PP. Selanne has our only goal and Ryan and Marchant are the only Ducks who try all night. Giguere (if he starts) lets in 5 goals on 24 shots.
