So Eklund posted his updated UFA Rankings... I wanted to take a moment to comment on the ones pertaining to the Ducks.
THE HOCKEYBUZZ UFA RANKINGS
2. Teemu Selanne (Retire, Anaheim, Philadelphia, Montreal)
He is either retiring or returning to Anaheim no other options... Selanne is a man of his word and if he says he's doing something than he's doing it.
13. Robert Esche (NY Rangers, San Jose, Anaheim)
Unless Burke is thinking of Esche as a backup for our ECHL affiliate (the Agusta Lynx) we don't need him and don't want him.
14. Jeff Friesen (Anaheim, Pittsburgh, Florida)
I would hope Burke isn't thinking third time is the charm because in his two previous stints with the Ducks, Friesen has proven himself to be a worthless NHL player... I wouldn't even play him on our AHL team (the Portland Pirates)...
15. Sean Burke (NY Rangers, Anaheim, Dallas)
If I were Burke I would take a chance on Burke. Yes, he's old, but I think he has one season left in him... I saw him play with the Kings last year and think he would be a good goalie to have, in case of an emergency or if Hiller doesn't play well after Bryz is traded. I would sign him to an AHL contract.
That's it for now... I'll continue to post my comments on things pertaining to the Ducks as I hear them or see them.
