BoC running way ahead of schedule

I guess a little update is in order.

Last year, for reference, the Ducks and the Sharks didn’t get their 13th win until December 10th. And the Kings didn’t suffer their 14th loss (reg. or OT) until December 14th.

Or, put another way, perhaps these teams are way behind schedule. The Ducks and Sharks had 6 losses each and the Kings had 6 wins all by October 25th last year.

Well, if the Sharks or Ducks want to learn a lesson, they might want to remember that the Kings last year through 18 games: 12-5-1, 25 points. Not that big a difference, considering the Kings ended up missing the playoffs by 6 points.

It’s a crazy state to cover, this California. Nobody sits still any more.

Those stats are crazy. It's funny what a difference there is from year to year. It's the same with the Flames, people were freaking and now look at them. Sheesh.

Ducks just made quite a shake-up, as I'm sure you know.

I don't know if I like the the deals, I think they could've gotten a better Chistov. But then again, Chistov's ship is sinking pretty quickly with his inability to crack the line-up this year.

Difficult to believe they also dealt a second round pick another tough guy, while trading their current tough guy for a fourth rounder. Then again, maybe fedoruk is out for a lot longer than expected, so they had to pull off a deal to get another tough guy quickly.

All told, it leaves the Ducks with $800,000 less in cap space, minus a second rounder, but plus a second and fourth rounder.

With the parros deal, they can also swap third round picks with the Avs if they so desire.

Sad to see fedoruk go, I always liked how he carried himself on the ice, how he only faught people that could fight him and how he didn't continue to pound a downed fighter.

Looks like it's a third round pick for chistov, whoops. Even more puzzling, though.
