Anaheim Ducks Gameday: Part-Timing It

Perry and Getzlaf Skiing on an Avalanche together.

Avalanche @ Ducks, and Jer tries to find a new job.



So the Ducks just went five days without a game, and now we get to see if that time off allowed for rest or simply fostered rust. On the other hand, Colorado just played Los Angeles yesterday. But the results of two shitty teams playing each other aren't that meaningful so who cares what happened.

Even though there were no games this past week for the team, the Ducks were still plenty busy. First they gave Viktor Fasth a two-year, $5.8 million contract extension on Wednesday, then two days later they brought recently displaced Toronto GM (and former Anaheim GM) Brian Burke back in to the organization as a "part-time pro scout." When it was announced earlier this season that Scott Niedermayer would be transitioning to a coaching position with the organization, he too was said to be joining on a part time basis. I can only assume this is one of those things that all those shitbag multi-billion dollar corporate business owners have been doing lately in response to Obamacare to avoid compensating their employees properly.

Anyway, I'm not sure what a "part-time" scout does. I suppose this means that about 50% of the time that Burke is watching a hockey game, he has to pay attention to how players are doing. The other 50% of the time he doesn't really have to do shit.

Hrm...

Hold on a sec, I'll be right back.

Damn it, nevermind.

Well, the last time Anaheim met up with the Avs the Ducks handled them pretty easily, coasting to a 3-0 victory. Hopefully we get a repeat performance and the Ducks can save up most of their strength for Monday's game against LA.

Fucking LA.

Prediction: Anaheim wins 4-2, Cogliano does something pretty impressive.
