Discussion in 'Anaheim Ducks' started by mymerlincat, Sep 26, 2018.
I guess I'm the preseason GDT creator now.
This isn’t related much to the game, but the Ducks just posted an interview with Sustr previewing the game and talking about his camp, and damn he talks and sounds exactly like Silf.
No lineups yet, other than the tweet for Miller in goal, huh? But "ice much of their expected lineup" sounds like we'll see:
Getz, Rico, Steel, and Gibbons as centers (maybe Lundestrom gets another look instead of Gibbons, or Getz gets another night off?)
Raks, Kase, Silf, Cogs, Terry, Comtois, Sherwood, Rowney as wings (holy hell our wings look pretty depleted)
A couple of our regular top 4 D get the night off, and we get another look at Mahura
Not having the last couple of games televised has made me antsy. Want to see a continuation of the up-tempo style they're trying to employ.
Teaford posted some possible lines based on the morning skate... so based on that, this would be my guess:
Rakell- Getzlaf- Terry
Silfverberg - Henrique - Kase
Cogliano - Steel - Sherwood
Comtois - Lundestrom - Tropp
I don’t know why but honestly I like this lineup a lot. Excited to see how we do.
Do you think Steel's potential is a bit stunted between Cogs and Sherwood?
They've learned how to shoot electromagnetic waves into the air and images of people show up on some kind of image-watching-box? What a time to be alive.
I would like Comtois and and Sherwood to switch spots but I also don't know enough about Sherwood at this point to know what his offensive play is like.
I feel so bad for Fowler always having to be the guy to have to carry an awful partner.
Has Schenn featured in any of our pre-season games?
Why is flower getting the **** end of the stick
That bottom 6.
Bleh, I don't want them to even try that defense configuration in case they decide they like it.
It feels almost like a running joke at this point.
"Who do we put the worst defenseman with? I know! Let's put him with the guy we ask to play a **** ton of minutes."
I bet it absolutely killed RC to pair Fowler with Montour last season. Giving him a good player? Heavens no!!
I think Cogliano's a good fit. He needs all the defensive help he can get on his lines.
Sherwood? That's where the whole "injuries piling up to wingers" thing starts to scare me. Winger is the easiest spot to fill with depth, but when it gets to the point where a guy like Sherwood is seeing top-9 minutes, you've probably gone too deep. The only thing I really like him for is being a guy who can skate his butt off on the fourth line for 10-12 minutes a game and then maybe be a threat in transition because he does play fast going up the ice.
This will be the fourth NHL(ish) game I'm seeing Troy Terry in. I wouldn't mind if this is the first time a goal happens because of something he does.
I wonder if fowler ever trys to give lindholm food poisening so he might get manson or montour as partner
We're down to 17F - 10D - 2G in terms of healthy bodies, unless my count is off?
I think that Steel being on the 3rd line would be significantly better for his development. Easier minutes.
They should sign Nick Shore for $1 million and stick him on the wing. He can't be worse than Rowney or Sherwood.
Sherwood has been one of our better players all camp .... He has a kase like motor
Beyond excited to finally be able to watch one of our games
