Get ready folks. Here come the elbows. Here come the cross checks, the untimely hits away from the puck, after the whistle and unnecessary jabs at the goalie when he’s trying to freeze play. Yep, you guessed it. Anaheim is coming to town. And don’t think they’ve cleaned up their act just because they’ve named a new captain.
“You don’t become the captain and then change what you’re doing," [Getzlaf] said. "It’s like becoming the president and changing everything that you campaigned about."
Pulled that gem from their official blog, written by some official blogger out there in the Anaheim blogosphere. Probably wears a suit and drives a BMW. Anyway, a much more renowned source of information than me, I’m just relaying two things here:
First: Getzlaf follows politics in the United States. He and I officially have nothing in common. I hope he gets punched in the soul patch.
Second: The Ducks’ identity has not changed, and likely will not with the new captain unless they go winless in their first 20. Otherwise, expect the same ole same ole from this team.
Let's just hope this doesn't happen again...
