GAME DAY: Anaheim Ducks
The first stop on the Thrashers' overland journey to the West is Orange County. This should be an interesting one.
Big Shooter has already demanded that Toby Enstrom destroy Chris Pronger tonight. We'll keep an eye on young Toby all night to see if he can deliver the goods. As he says, Shooter isn't the biggest fan of the Ducks.
Me, I like the Ducks just fine. I would give several fingers to have Ryan Getzlaf on the Thrashers, and I can't help but be infatuated with their two snipers: ageless Finnish Flash Teemu Selanne and American rookie phenom Bobby Ryan.
It'll be interesting to see how Mathieu Schneider performs tonight.
The Thrashers are a small, soft team. The Ducks are big and mean. You do the math, but nevertheless, Go Thrashers.
Sigh. Maybe things would be different if the Thrashers had Gordon Bombay. Or at least Julie "The Cat" Gaffney.
