and are outplayed by their lesser known mates, what should a coach do? During the last game the Ducks played against the Dallas Stars, there was one Duck who stood out against his other teammates - Drew Miller. The younger brother of Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, scored his 1st NHL goal the game before against the Nashville Preds and the excitement of that event clearly carried over in the game against the Stars. He was flying and creating scoring opportunites while his more seasoned and notorious teammates loafed around the ice. Many of them looked disinterested and lazy. He was one of the top 3 forwards in the Dallas game and yet, his reward was a measley 9 minutes of ice time. When a coach obviously sees a player performing above the level of the star players, does it not seem clear that egos and star status should go by the way of the team? The other notable player for the Ducks that played above his mates was Brad May. His reward was also a meager 9 minutes of ice time. Message to Coach Carlyle: I don't care if George Parros is outplaying Getlaf, Kunitz, Perry, MacDonald, Moen, Pahlsson, or whoever. Play the guys that show up with jump in their step and a desire to play and win and if you need some spark, bring up Jason King and Brandon Segal to show the Duck NHLers what it looks like to play with passion, speed, and desire.
