Anaheim Ducks

Nightly Wrap-Around

  • Greg Wyshynski gives his take on the decreasing amount of hockey coverage in a number of newspapers based in NHL cities.  Very interesting take by Wyshynski.  He hits the nail on the head in my opinion.
  • The Ducks have traded Sean O’Donnell to the Kings and, as a result, are now under the salary cap.  This trade serves both teams well.  The Ducks needed to get below the salary cap and the Kings were in need of a veteran defenseman to go along with their extremely young blueline.
  • Kevin Weekes has proven that his arm is back to normal during the pre-season. Weekes will provide the Devils with solid netminding in the seven or eight games he plays this season.
  • With today’s announcement by the Canucks that Roberto Luongo will serve as team captain, Joe Pelletier takes a look at the rule prohibiting goaltenders from serving as on-ice captainsNice little history lesson.
  • Is Jim Balsillie trying to buy Boots Del Biaggio’s share in the Predators? Here we go again…
  • More on Balsillie, as Stephen Brunt of the Globe & Mail wonders whether the struggling U.S. stock market could mean NHL hockey ends up in HamiltonAll the other issues aside, I think hockey would flourish in Southern Ontario.  To me, it is a market that is pining for a second (slightly more affordable) NHL team and could be a complete and total success.
