As you have probably noticed, a “Fire Ducks’ GM Bob Murray” petition has been making its rounds through the twitterverse lately, fueled by writers over at Anaheim Calling. It recently picked up even more steam when Puck Daddy spotlighted the endeavor. As of the time of this writing, it has gathered over 300 signatures.
Dobias chronicles the positives that have occurred under Murray’s watch. It’s a good read.

Hey Jared, as a law clerk your eloquent, though half-hearted defense of Barstool Bob is the best I’ve read to date.
It is the conventional view that Burke left our Ducks in a cap-challenged mess, we don’t know what Burke would have done to resolve it. IE, I can’t imagine Burke trading Pronger, maybe he would have let Scotty retire if not for Henry “working quietly behind the scenes” Samueli.
Note: It isn’t necessary to always agree with somebody to appreciate their talent. Jared Dobias at Ducks Daily is a fine advocate.
In other news…
a real trade happened yesterday and none of the Gossip Girls had predicted it. St. Louis Blues sent depth forward BJ Crombeen and its 4th round Entry Draft pick in 2013 to Tampa Bay Lightning for the Bolts 4th round picks in 2013 and 2014.
Various corporate media sources are reporting interest in Dallas Stars power forward Brendan Morrow. File this as plan D for those teams not acquiring one of Shane Doan, Rick Nash or Bobby Ryan. Ducks fans will recall that Coach Babcock slotted Morrow alongside Perry & Getzlaf on Canada’s 2010 gold medal Olympic team.
NHL Trade Report reveals Rick Nash’s shortlist of teams he’d accept a trade to is reportedly the Detroit Red Wings, San Jose Sharks, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, and the New York Rangers.
I believe it kinda, sorta as the list makes sense. It still has the feel of a “Mom Gives Birth to Alien Love Child” tabloid story.
