I sat down with the BoC’s Ducks blogger Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf to talk about this big interstate game between the Sharks and Ducks.

shampeon: So the Ducks had yet another early exit from the playoffs despite a Pacific Division championship and a very good regular season last year. And all that despite a really awful start to the year. What do you think about them bringing back essentially the same team this year?

Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf:

shampeon: John Gibson was handed the, uh, keys? reins? to the Ducks goal last year after they shipped off Freddie Andersen to the Leafs. He’s only 24 and seems to have a lot of upside, despite some uneven play. Is his inconsistency something you worry about going forward, or is that just the cost of having a pretty decent but young starting goaltender on a team-friendly deal?

Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf:

shampeon: The Ducks recent success has largely been because of their young players, like Hampus Lindholm and Jakob Silfverberg and Richard Rackell. But they still are relying on their long-time core of Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, who are now on the wrong side of 30 and seeing some evidence of declining production. What is more critical for the Ducks to get over their recent playoff setbacks? Improvement by their young players, or their veterans stepping up?

Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf:

shampeon: Look man, I spent at least 4 minutes researching these goddamn questions, the least you could do is say something in response.

Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf:

shampeon: Jesus.

Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf:

shampeon: Ryan Kesler is maybe the dumbest player on this team, and that’s saying an awful lot considering the brain-trust of Perry, Getzlaf, and Bieksa. Say nothing if you fully agree.

Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf:

shampeon: Teemu Sellane is an awful shitbag of a person whose popularity is completely undeserved. Silence is assent.

Corygeorgesomebodyanybodyhellowtf:

shampeon: Orange County is a hotbed of fascism, and quietly funds some of the most terrible and damaging anti-democratic groups threatening our republic. Don’t say anything if you are ashamed of your locale.

shampeon: Unless you say no you agree you will get a full back tattoo of Joe Thornton and Brent Burns ESPN Body magazine cover.
