In a game that the Ducks lost 4-1, former Canuck prospect Anton Rödin scored their only goal.
Let's hope he has better luck this time around and can stay healthy.
Ummm how bout NO

Blobbee’s boi - Ekblad just got lit up by a half his size Max Domi. Embarrassing. I thought Ekblad was old school? He’s more like a modern day Dana Murzyn fisters mitt

Ekblad isn’t a fighter and didn’t consent to fighting. Did it even drop his gloves and was trying to pull away the entire time.

Was he too afraid to go with Max? Is Ekblad the Linden of defence? Did you see that tilt between McAvoy and Dubios? Why can’t he throw down?

Ekblad has a history of concussion and probably didn't want to risk another one in a meaningless game and against a midget goon. Don't blame him one bit. Hope Domi gets 5 games for it.

Panthers don't have no Tom Wilson to protect their stars.

Check out Jesse Pull-you-yarvi's goal in the highlights tonight. He better not turn into that kind of player or we're going to be fucked for decades.

They have Haley. He’d punch the piss out of Wilson or Domi

Ekblad embarrassed himself by not dropping the gloves, he looked like a chicken. Yes it was wrong what Domi did but Max was rag dolling him for a while trying to get him to drop his gloves, pure chicken shit, IMO. But yeah Blob is right he’s the Trevor Linden of defence, just wants no part of fighting. McAvoy now that’s a Defenceman! Loved his tilt with Pierre Luc Dubios

lol, well Sbisa got the highest contract awarded for a PTO.
CapFriendly:
Sbisa's $1.5M deal is the highest awarded to a PTO since we started tracking professional tryouts back in 2015
So that's something I guess. :D
