Another Dead Duck!

The Ducks have lost another defenceman. This time it's Chris Pronger, who broke his foot in last night's 4-3 loss to the Wild.

'It wasn't really that hard of a shot. It just catches you on the right spot and there's not much padding down there,'' said Pronger, who tried briefly to skate after the shot. ''Every time I went to push off, it didn't feel very good.''

I'm suprised there aren't more broken feet with all the shot blocking going on.
The Ducks are facing alot of adversity now, and we'll see how they react. My guess is they will look human for once this season. Maybe even a losing skid! They have lost their last 2 games.
Pronger now joins Francois Beauchemin (spleen), Todd Marchant (abdominal), JS Giguere (groin), and Ilya Bryzgalov (groin) on the injury list.
I'm sure the Ducks are more concerned about getting at least one of their top goalies back ASAP.

Nice to see! The Ducks are my least favorite team right now. Someone should run S. Niedermayer through the boards. Selanne is just a cry baby when things dont go his way.

Oh Matt, it nice to see you as delusional in '07 as you were in '06.

The biggest cry-baby in the whole league is Iginla, and you know it!

Here is a great chance for Mike Wall to step up and prove he is an NHL-caliber goalie.

Do it for all of Telkwa, Mike!

Yeah, I'm hoping for Mike Wall success as well!
The biggest crybaby in the NHL is Mario's adopted son, Sid Crosby!
To be honest Jin, I'd rather have Iginla as a captain than Sundin or Naslund or Alfie!
I actually like the Ducks, Matt. But i still haven't forgiven Niedermayer from when he played with the Devils against the Leafs in the playoffs. Remember when Domi elbowed him and Needs looked like he was dead? He didn't miss a game. Domi got suspended, and the Devils took over the series. Damn Niedermayer!

I just want to cry. Deeply. Meditation isn't helping my anxiety attacks, but watching the Ducks play a solid game last night against the Wings helped. A little. Barely.
