Anaheim Calling

Ron Wilson OUT in Toronto, Randy Carlyle IN - Anaheim Calling
We all knew it wouldn't take long for Randy Carlyle to find a job again. Today Ron Wilson was relieved of his duties in as head coach of the struggling Maple Leafs in favor for the no nonsense Carlyle. This move reunites the Stanley Cup champion duo of Brian Burke and Carlyle. By hiring Carlyle, the Ducks are no longer on the hook for the rest of his contract plus that of Bruce Boudreau's. Maybe that extra money will get us a few free agents in the off-season...a girl can dream.

Hockey Divorces: All the Baggage, None of the Custody Issues - Anaheim Calling
To those of us "in the know"--and even to some who weren't--the break up between the Ducks and the Crunch was pretty much all but sealed after the first year of the affiliation. It was clear that the two front offices weren't exactly seeing eye-to-eye by the end of last season. As you all know by now, Howard Dolgon, the Crunch's owner, isn't one to handle things quietly, which is pretty much in direct opposition to the standard operating procedure in Anaheim. I believe he was once called ape-shit-crazy by Jen [Ed. Note: True.], and although I don't exactly share that sentiment (ha), I will say that it is very seldom boring being a fan of the Crunch. Howard is an interesting person to have as an owner, there's no doubt about it. I'd imagine he can be rather difficult to deal with when he doesn't get his way.

G65 Oilers at Ducks - Lowetide
We’re told Ryan Smyth is working on a contract extension now, and when that is complete this 29th overall club is going to have 15 players under contract for 2012-13. Add RFA’s Sam Gagner, Jeff Petry, Devan Dubnyk and Theo Peckham and that’s 19 confirmed survivors. Can the Edmonton Oilers seriously return that many players from the disaster that was 11-12?
