And that's the move to fix the bleeding?

Nothings been mentioned, but it could have something to do with it.

I'm guessing third line? Or is it fourth? I dunno what Anaheims lineup is looking like right now.

Hope he does well. Took a lot of crap in LA. He deserved it, mostly, but he still took it. Good luck Kyle, except when you play LA.

Must be an injury fill-in. They gave him a tryout but released him. I guess he gave them at least something to look at over the summer. Good for him for finding work.

I kinda had a feeling this would happen. I actually like the fit. I think Calder would be a great addition for the Ducks. A third line grit assignment would be perfect under a Duck-style of play. Any Duck fans know where he will likely be playing on the depth chart?

With Carter injured and Artyukhin suspended... The Ducks could look like this:

Ryan - Getzlaf - Perry
Calder - Koivu - Selanne
Nokelainen - Christensen - Lupul
Brown - Marchant - Parros

Christensen moved up to the 3rd line in the last game and showed some chemistry with Lupul. I'd like to try that again. I guess they will reunite Calder with Koivu and Selanne as the two finns hasn't been working since preseason and Calder was with them at that point.

But tbh... the lines could be pretty much anything as you will see below:

Ryan/Lupul - Getlzaf - Perry
Lupul/Ryan/Calder/Nokelainen/Marchant/Christensen - Koivu - Selanne
Nokelainen/Marchant/Christensen/Calder - Marchant/Christensen/Nokelainen - Lupul/Nokelainen/Christensen
Brown - Marchant/Christensen/Nokelainen - Parros

I guess they wanted to ensure the tanking.

Maybe they're trying to get rid of Artyukhin.. please? Calder, always liked his hustle and it's a two-way so i like it.

If they sign Bell and trade him with Hiller to Toronto, maybe Burke will give them his 2012 first rounder?

It's not really a bad one, for 500k they don't take an huge risk.

so he starts in the AHL and if he can get it going he's depth. Not a bad idea

although when I think of him I think about Tyler Anrason who is in Hartford of the AHL for the Rangers. No chance that guy sees anytime but hey atleast they both are getting paid to play a game

I'm happy for the guy. I ran into him in Newport Beach over summer and he was feeling good about making the team out of camp.

Servicable guy who can see limited 2nd line time or 3rd line duties. Not the greatest guy, but is a filler. Good contract anyway.

I remember both Calder & Bell were Chicago's hope for the future. Man, their careers are over.
