    Hyped for hockey to start.

    Not so hyped to start against Burns and Karlsson - we struggle against just Burns enough as it is.

    The Sharks own us recently so I’m not expecting much. If we do win, it’ll probably be on Gibson’s back.

    We’ll see if this new system of ours allows us to not be doubled up in shots.

    We're 4-19 in openers by my count.

    Agreed. For some reason the Ducks play really bad at season openers. I am not expecting much tonight as the Sharks will be all fired up and the Ducks have a history of pretty poor opening night games.

    Based on our injury situation and our roster, this is the lineup I came up with:

    Rakell - Getz - Terry
    Cogs - Rico - Silf
    Comtois - Lundeström - Aberg
    Gibbons - Rowney - Sherwood

    Lindholm - Manson
    Fowler - Montour
    Pettersson - Schenn

    Gibson - Miller

    Scratches: Steel, Street, Sustr

    Welcome back hockey! Here's to a good season for the Ducks and all us fans.

    (just stocked up on Scotch for the season, so I'm ready).

    Looking at how last playoffs went and our 4-19 record in season openers, I have decided to lower my expectations a bit.

    6-2 Ducks

    I would really, really like to get off to a good start this year. Half the fanbase is ready to pounce on the slightest excuse to give up.

    I don't think you're gonna see them double-up the rookies if they don't have to. Swap Cogliano and Comtois.

    I remember 2006 we beat the Blackhawks and 2007 we had like a 19 game point streak or something. Those and last year are the only two wins I can think of.

    The one non-Carlyle win was under Mike Babcock in 2002-03. The season of the lost Stanley Cup final.

    Thornton shaved his beard, now might be our chance to beat them while San Jose's beard power is at half capacity.

    Pretty sure the practice lines were:

    Rakell - getzlaf - terry
    Comtois - henrique - silfverberg
    Cogliano - steel - aberg
    Street - rowney - sherwood

    But gibbons appears the be healthy so am assuming he takes streets spot.

    That season we won 3 games in the final - something the Sharks still have not done as of yet lmao. That was a heartbreaking loss but that playoff run I became the fan of the Ducks.

    This year Sharks are serious contenders tho but let`s see if their forwards and goaltending keep up with that monster blueline. On paper looks good.

    Thornton without that beard should be faster because improved aerodynamics

    I think Gibbons is out and Steel will more than likely play. I agree with your defense pairings though.

    Rakel-Getz-Terry
    Comtois-Rico-Silf
    Cogs-Steel-Aberg
    Lundeström-Rowney-Sherwood

    Hell I don't know. The injuries are already nuts!!!!!
