Anaheim has done a terrific job re-loading after their Cup run. they're pretty exciting to watch, and i'm sure there's a bit extra motivation with it being Selanne's final season.
buuuuuuuuut, they ARE coached by Gabby...

Other than their top line I am still not sold. Yea, they are winning, they are playing well, and I give them credit but I still don't see this team making it out of the 2nd round. Kings, Blues, Hawks, Sharks, and maybe even Yotes would beat them in a 7 game series. Just my opinion but they are peaking at the wrong time. It is interesting to see that the Avs and Ducks are on such a run.

Not trying to take anything away from them just don' t think they are as good as their record says. Their PP and their PK are both awful thus far.

Penner is leading the league at +13 right now...

They did just finish a brutal 8 game roadie. But yeah, I agree with you in a sense that they have played nothing but bad to mediocre teams so far. The only tough one that have defeated is Phoenix.

The scary thing is that they're winning despite all their injuries along with crappy PP and PK. What happens when that gets better? But yeah, I can't wait until they face the better teams. The Kings have proven that they can "hang" with the better teams. Their only problem now is that they don't bother showing up against bad teams.

Another embarrassing win last night against the Yotes. This Ducks team is horrible.

Ducks are fun to watch, but that Getzlaf/Perry/Penner line even manages to get under my skin. Thought for sure last night would be the night that Doan goes crazy and elbows someone in the jaw.

Fun? I'd rather watch them lose. Thanks for nothing Yotes. At least it wasn't another 3 point game.

Where do two of them wind up?

Dunno...but I sure do love a good USA goalie. Rootin for Gibson in the World Juniors was awesome. Not so much in a Ducks jersey.
