What a crazy start to the second round for the Ducks and Wings. The game featured some great hockey action, and some controversial calls and non-calls.
In particular, I am referring to the huge open ice hit on Jiri Hudler by Mike Brown. In my opinion (and also the league), it was a clean hit that ended with Hudler being cut over the eye. It also ended with Brown assessed a 5-minute major for in... Read More »
The first edition of the Battle of California is finally here. No two California teams have faced each other in the modern era (since the [b]Sharks [/b]and [b]Ducks [/b]entered the league). The [b]Oakland Seals [/b]faced the [b]Los Angeles Kings [/b]in 1969, the [b]Kings [/b]were victorious in 7 games.
This is the run down of all possible playoff series that never happened between the three cur... Read More »

I'm guilty of promising to blog, and failing to even write one blog since the start of the regular season. Mostly, it's been because I am (was) very busy with work.
But my intent was to let the Ducks try to work out any kinks in the works, and try to write a blog at about the 10 game mark. Unfortunately, I was wrong to assume there would be others to fill in with their own blogs, and... Read More »
Ducks Dump OD on Kings
Posted October 1, 2008
[b]Brian Burke[/b] has once again taken a left turn and stunned me. He dealt [b]Sean O'Donnell[/b] to the Kings for what basically amounts to nothing. A 3rd round conditional pick in 2009 [b]IF[/b] the Kings trade O'Donnell this season. If they keep him, the Ducks get nothing.
Now, I feel this is decent treatment of O'Donnell. He lives in Hermosa Beach which is close to Los Angeles. He played 6... Read More »
