So the Ducks are playing San Jose in the first round. In my opinion, this is far better than us playing Detroit.
There is a poll on the Ducks Web site that shows a 60-40 split between who fellow Ducks fans would ideally take on in this first round. I'm interested to know your thoughts on the upcoming games and why you are for or against the Ducks facing off against San Jose, as opposed to Detroit.
I’m also curious to hear your predictions for the first round and what your ultimate match up would be for the 2009 Stanley Cup Final. Obviously it had better include the Ducks facing off against someone or I'll be forced to bring out my ninja skills!
My personal dream matchup would be Ducks vs. Caps so I can harass my friend Joe when we beat them. Actually, now that I think about it I may have to demote Joe to ex-friend. I really have no other choice.... just kidding…sort of.
Hope you guys have your tickets set for next week! Can't wait to get to the first home game!

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
