Also, the Ducks NEVER should have paid Perry when they did. He wasnt playing well this year anyways, and he just mailed it in once he got his check. The best Duck for the entire series was rookie Emerson Etem, which is kinda cool, but not much of a consolation.
Ducks would have been killed by LA anyways.
Worst Duck alongside Perry was Cam Fowler. This guy absolutely blows. I have never seen a player get more accolades, and never have anything to show for it than this guy. No shot from the point, terrible puck skills, and is an absolute wussy, who couldnt hit an opposing player to save his life.
Useless, and hopefully dumped in the offseason. Overrated beyond belief.
I agree with a lot of this but Ducks were physical at home when the series started. If you have a good PK unit, you can get away with the dirty plays. This is the Ducks fault for not getting the 5 on 4 goals. Etem and Getzlaf were on it and Datsyuk was awesome even though one player doesn't have every possible shift. Ducks didn't take care of it when he was off the ice. Cam Fowler has had the sophmore jinx after a great rookie season. He is MIA for most of the season. Two years in a row where it is one and done. This was the year to make that Cup move. Congrats to Detroit. They outcoached us and had a plan almost every OT game to score immediately.
