Hey there Black-hawk fans, I'm just a regular Ducks fan checking in with some serious questions. Do most of you remember who Bob Murray is? Apparently he was the man who ran Chicago into the sewer in the late 90's and early 2000's. Now we all know the media market is a lot smaller in Anaheim than it is in Chicago or the East. That's why nobody seemed to have noticed how bad of a GM Murray actually is when the Ducks started shitting themselves this year. Time and time again he's made the dumbest moves I've ever seen a GM make. He let Francois Beauchemin walk, who btw never wanted to leave in the first place, and then he overpaid Toronto by giving up Gardiner and Lupul. Now our top prospect Justin Schultz is about to bolt because he is apparently ticked at the Ducks for trading his pal. I don't even want to mention the Kunitz trade, signing Nick Boynton and Steve Eminger, or his inability to attract free agents other than the occasional Finn who wants to play with Teemu Selanne.
Well as you can see it's turning real ugly in Anaheim and the sad thing is our ownership is very tight-lipped about hockey operations. I don't know what it'll take to get Bob fired but I'm hoping that day comes sooner rather than later. So I ask you citizens of Second City Hockey, what was life like under the man known as Barstool Bob? Did he really screw you guys over? Or was it just a case where his hands were tied by the ownership as he states in this article: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1999-12-03/sports/9912030234_1_bob-murray-trade-deadline-chad-kilger
