2007 Ducks

Hi all!

I just wanted to do a quick write on the best and worse things that has happened to the Ducks in the year 2007.

Best things in 2007

  • Beating Detroit in the WCF in 6 games.
  • Winning the Stanley Cup against the Senators in 5 games. I found it funny that most of the media were predicting Ottawa to win the cup.
  • Signing JS Giguere and Ryan Getzlaf to long term contracts.
  • The Ducks and Kings coming to London to play two games and I saw one of the games!
  • Scott Niedermayer returning even though he took 6 months to make a stupid decision.
  • I know Ducks fans were sad at trading Andy McDonald to St Louis for Doug Weight and a prospect but Doug is an UFA after this season which makes our payroll easier.
  • Bobby Ryan getting a chance playing for the Ducks.
  • Signing Jonas Hiller.

Worse things in 2007

  • Teemu still undecided about retirement.
  • Losing more games than last season.
  • Losing Penner to Edmonton for a bag loads of money because the PPG (Penner, Perry and Getzlaf) line doesn’t exist anymore.
  • Always losing games against crap teams last season.
  • Waiting for Scott Niedermayer to make his decision on retirement.
  • Ilya Bryzgalov claimed on waivers by Phoenix and we got nothing in return!

Just want to say to all arena members and everyone reading here a Happy New Year and best wishes for 2008!
