Season over. Might as well lose the rest of the games and improve our draft position. See ya Niedermayer and Selanne.

What a waste of Selanne's last season. Tanking is about the only option right now, as much as I hate encouraging losing.

This team is the special type of crappy that isn't good enough to make the playoffs but isn't bad enough to get a decent drafting position .

Only thing is interesting to see is Teemu going to get the 600th and brake Kurri's record but the way they are playing that even could be a hard task.

Better tank than 1st round exit.

There is just no hope. Our first line is terrible, we have absolutely no secondary scoring, our PP is brutal, our defense sucks, our goaltending is shaky, and most importantly, it seems like our coach just does not have an answer, nor is he willing to try something different. His only solution is to juggle lines, which clearly hasn't worked.

I don't encourage tanking either, but getting a very high pick could be huge for this team. This group just does not have it. I read somewhere our chances of making the playoffs this year were 5% heading into the game against Columbus. I can't imagine what that number is now. Probably around 1%.

In terms of the tanking approach, Anaheim is currently in the 9th position in the draft. With CBJ beating us tonight that moves them up to 63 points while we still have 68.

Our next 3 games are against Nashville, SJ, and Chicago. With the way they're playing it's very unlikely they will win 1 of those games. The Southeast teams need to start winning however if Anaheim has any chance at a bottom 5 pick. 4 of them are directly behind Anaheim in the league (ATL, TB, FLA, CAR) and NYR are also right behind Anaheim. If they start winning then yes they could be in on the top 5 pick.

its gonna be tough for us to get into a top 5 spot but who knows... the schedules helps with us playing nashvilel chicago and sj in the next couple games as noted by someone but knowing this team.. they'll acutally show up for the next 3 games and get stuck with the 10-12th pick or something

You guys know whats going to happen, right? In the next 10-15 games the Ducks will become mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and be in position for a bottom 5 pick.

Then they'll win the last 5 or 6 games in a row and move out of top 5.

I hope we suck worse and get a shot at Cam Fowler in the draft. Our defense would look pretty good next year with Lubo, Sbisa, Fowler and probably a UFA dman hopefully Volchenkov.

I was kind of glad we lost last night, anything that brings us closer to Fowler is a good sign IMO. Now hopefully some Eastern teams can start winning(as well as the BJs).

Also, also kind of hoping a horrid season like this will inspire Niedermayer and Selanne to come back and finish their careers on a much higher note(at a discount rate, too). But, I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one.

If we keep losing these games, and get around #5, which is embarrasing to say, we could still have an awesome shot at fowler. I think it's finally time to trade up in a draft. Please Murray!!! Make it happen...

Throw in Blake to sweeten the deal

Fowler or Niederreiter would be ideal. We're already in good position to get Niederreiter if the season ended today.

That means the Ducks won't pick them.


I remember Tyler Myers was an ideal pick, too.

There is no reason to tank. The Ducks already have some stars in Getzlaf, Perry, and Ryan. I don't want this team to start developing a losing mentality.

If you're into tanking, all we need is to finish semi-low, and hope for the right draw.

So...

I doubt it, unless we package the 1st rounders + spare parts to another team. I don't see that happening though. But there still is a ton of time left.
