Monday Evening Post

OK Duck Fans break out your wallet because there is another product for you to buy.  I have some analysis by the folks at ESPN and a little more on Kent Huskins day with the cup.

The Anaheim Ducks have released a tribute magazine to that:

 "chronicles the Ducks' run to the Stanley Cup title. It features recaps of the regular season and every round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, with tons of photos from every game, the post game celebrations, on the road in Ottawa and more"








Its $10 at the team store

ESPN has some analysis on the outlook for the Ducks this season.

I don't want to cop out in the very first edition of "Better or Worse," but I really can't offer a definitive answer about the defending champs until we find out whether captain Scott Niedermayer is really going to retire.

If Niedermayer decides to hang up his skates (he says he's leaning toward retirement), the Ducks will be worse. You just don't replace a player like Niedermayer. There is no way they'll be better without him.

A nice article on Kent Huskins that I missed. 

On the sixth of June, a rookie NHL defenceman named Kent Huskins, slightly incredulous, lifted the Stanley Cup over his head while standing on a frozen pond in Anaheim.

Two months later, Huskins is bringing the Cup home to Almonte, the proudest town in the Ottawa Valley.

It's summer festival time in Almonte, population 4,000, which means that the popular puppeteer show and the 3-on-3 Naismith street basketball tournament have some exclusive company this weekend.

m. tomorrow, Lord Stanley's silver mug is due to arrive at the airport in Ottawa, to be immediately whisked to the Huskins home in Almonte.
