It's Frenchie, Jason, Nick, and Andrew's world. We're just visiting

  • Our third line is so awesome that (I'll let y'all fill in the blank). [Anaheim Ducks]
  • Most of the trade chatter has centered around the Ryans, but could Francois Beauchemin and/or Jason Blake be on the chopping block? [USA Today]
  • Is Jason Blake the "linchpin" of the Ducks' offense? [Ducks Daily Blog]
  • A baseless, unsubstantiated rumor: Teemu Selanne to Detroit? Apparently, they have the cap space. [Fannation]
  • Another unsubstantiated rumor that has nothing to do with us: Are the Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes preparing to swap Tim Gleason and Jakub Voracek? [Canes Country]
  • Could Jarmo Kekalainen replace Pierre Gauthier as the Montreal Canadiens' GM? [Habs Eyes on the Prize]
  • "Imposters in Anaheim!" - SK [Ducks and Pucks]
  • The Calgary Herald discusses Ryan Getzlaf's strong second half. [Calgary Herald]
  • Bruce Boudreau refers to Luca Sbisa as a "'star in the making." My heart melts. [OC Register]
  • Ducks fans will receive a complimentary T-shirt at this Saturday's game vs Ottawa. This will be only the third time that we've played them at the Honda Center since our 2007 Cup win. [Anaheim Ducks]
  • Devante Smith-Pelly was Adventures in Pucking's Man of the Day on Wednesday. [Adventures in Pucking]
  • And speaking of things that happened on Wednesday: Francois Beauchemin was Puck Daddy's third star of the day. [Puck Daddy]
  • Ryan Miller and Martin Brodeur may be old, but they can still make clutch saves once in a while. [Backhand Shelf]
  • From the Vault: Randy Carlyle may not be our coach anymore, but at one point, he was a Norris Trophy-winning, hard-nosed defenseman. Watch him fight Ron Greschner (from December 19, 1984). [Sportspyder]
