Today NHL teams revealed their protection lists for the expansion draft. The Ducks protected seven forwards, three defensemen, and one goalie. The protected forwards include Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Ryan Kesler, Jakob Silfverberg, Rickard Rakell, Andrew Cogliano, and Antoine Vermette. Cam Fowler, Hampus Lindholm, and Kevin Bieksa were the protected defensemen. The Ducks also protected goalie John Gibson, which was expected.
The question for General Manager Bob Murray is how can he prevent Vegas from taking Josh Manson or Sami Vatanen in the expansion draft. There have been several reports that Murray is working on a deal with Vegas GM George McPhee. On this show, we talk about the Ducks situation and how Murray will try to handle it. We also talk about injury updates, the Simon Despres buyout, trades, and the NHL draft.
The season may be over for the Anaheim Ducks, but the expansion draft and regular NHL draft are coming up. The Ducks did make some decisions this week regarding their coaching staff.

On this show we talk about the coaching moves, the two upcoming drafts, and the Stanley Cup Final. We also provide some injury updates and how they will affect the decisions the Ducks will have to make in the coming weeks.

On this show, we break down the regular season numbers between the Ducks and Oilers. We look at both the Ducks and Oilers playoff performances so far as part of our second round preview. We provide several player updates including Cam Fowler, Clayton Stoner, and Simon Despres. Lastly, we take a look at the other three playoff series and share our thoughts on who will prevail in each matchup.
The Anaheim Ducks have a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Calgary Flames. Despite the huge series lead, each game has been decided by one goal.
On this show, we talk about who has played well this in this series and which players have had surprise performances. We discuss whether John Gibson should continue to be the starting goalie or if Jonathan Bernier should start a game or too. We take a look around the league and share our thoughts on the other series currently being played.
The Anaheim Ducks clinched their 5th straight Pacific Division title. They are set to face the Calgary Flames in Round 1 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
On this show, we talk about how the Ducks won the Pacific Division in the final days of the regular season. We share our thoughts on the Nick Ritchie suspension and Cam Fowler injury. We also preview the Ducks playoff matchup against the Flames. Lastly, we talk about all the other matchups around the league and give our predictions for each series.
The Anaheim Ducks had an intense week of hockey against Canadien opponents. They went on the road winning two games and also losing two games. During the road trip the Ducks temporarily lost control of their own destiny for the Pacific Division title, but then they retained it courtesy of the Calgary Flames. The Ducks beat the Flames on the road and then again at home for the 25th time in a row during the regular season. The Ducks win streak at home against the Flames is longest active streak currently in the NHL.
The biggest concern for the Ducks right now is the health of their defensive core. Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen were both injured in the Ducks overtime loss to Edmonton. Cam Fowler was injured in the recent physical game against Calgary. The Ducks are also without Korbinian Holzer, who had to return home to Germany for personal reasons.
On this show, we talk about the Pacific Division playoff picture, player injuries, and the Olympics.
The Anaheim Ducks have won four games in a row and now find themselves in first place in the Pacific Division. The San Jose Sharks have lost six in a row making the Pacific Division a toss up between them, Anaheim, Calgary, and Edmonton. The Ducks do control their own destiny as they hold a two point advantage over San Jose and Edmonton.
One reason for the Ducks success has been the captain Ryan Getzlaf, who was named the 3rd star of the week by the NHL. He had seven assists in his last three games. Another reason for the Ducks winning ways has been Jonathan Bernier who has gone 8-0-1 since his regulation loss back on March 5th to Vancouver. He had a 1.64GAA and .944 SV% during that time span.
On this show, we discuss the Ducks playoff chances, roster moves, player updates, and more!
This past week the Anaheim Ducks went 3-0-1 in their last four games. They now only sit four points behind the San Jose Sharks with 10 games remaining in the season. The Ducks have leaned on Jonathan Bernier recently with John Gibson dealing with a lower body injury. Gibson came back and played in the previous week against St. Louis, but appears to have reaggravated his injury.
The question for Randy Carlyle is if Gibson is healthy before the season ends, then will he go with him in net or continue with Bernier who has gone 5-0-1 in his last six starts. On this show, we talk about the Ducks goalie situation and the importance of the final weeks of the season.
