Yup. One bad playoffs negates a whole career of 30+ goal seasons.


 
He had a mediocre season in general, and his playoffs were worse than merely bad. His compete level was terrible, and he was invisible outside of a small stretch in game two.


When a short season goes against a career trend, I have a hard time putting much stock in the one season. And it's not like he was the only Duck to play like crap.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Yah. Perry was the biggest flop for the Ducks last year.

Howard played big role role in Perry's awful performance. Perry was getting chances, but was simply not scoring. He was always noticeable. 'Twas not the case with Ryan, who was simply invisible.

While I somewhat agree, Perry seemed to shoot very poorly. I cant remember one guy not finding a corner on 2-3 wide open looks per game other than Perry during that series. I almost crapped my drawers everytime he shot only to see it hit the Wheel on Howard every shot. But I agree with you. Some of that is good positioning/goaltending.

You might find a few people around these parts who disagree with that.

Oh, perhaps you'll refer to Franzen now. He wasn't at all invisible in that series.

Haha, myself included. It was sarcasm referring to Franzen.

Anyone watch the presser? Twitter's blowing up. This gem was my fave:

@detroithockey96: Alfredsson should embrace the heel role, come out to his press conference wearing a No. 91 Red Wings jersey.

The Malik Report has a good story comparing the Alfredsson signing to Federov's departure from Detroit.


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

Also: Good on Alfredsson (erm, sorry - Alfie) for doing that whole goodbye presser dealie. He didn't need to, but then, I guess he sort of did. Don't want to drag that cloud into the regular season and park it over Motown, etc.

 

Actually, I get the feeling it was largely (if not mostly) a way of saying goodbye to that hospital, even though it's not really goodbye. It seems he really, really, really cares about that cause (mental health), which is cool.


Also: What if the Sens win the Cup this season?

Franzen: 3 G / 19:30 TOI

 

Ryan: 2 G, 2 A / 16:17 TOI

 

The only thing making Franzen noticeable was the fact Val Filppula was on his team.
