Just quickly... What do you think of Aberg on the 4th line, Hilary?

Numbers for Nerds and Nerdettes:

100%. That is the percentage of Anaheim Ducks head coaches that need to put Pontus Aberg back on the top line. Unironically, it is also the percentage of anti-Aberg, hate-spewing, Duck loathing hillbillies, who suck farts from dead seagulls’ arses. Get on the Aberg train, or get rid of your memberships people. Toot-fucking-Toot.
