Nucks at Ducks GameThread: The Battle of the Big Bucks (as in Money)

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

While we see Anaheim boasting more depth now than in previous years, the team is still fairly top-heavy in terms of the majority of its production. Vancouver is the same way, adding to it that three of their forwards play defensemen-like minutes. Ergo the Battle of the Big Bucks!

Numbers for Nerds: Anaheim has 206 Man Games Lost reported as of today, behind only Pittsburgh at 243 MGL. This number includes the long-term Sheldon Souray injury (remember him?) as well as Luca Sbisa and Viktor Fasth. (I believe the number was 202 MGL a game ago, which makes me wonder if a "healthy scratch" on Friday wasn’t actually sat for an undisclosed ache.) Vancouver has 124 MGL as of today.
