Hi, I’m Chris Kober, a life long Ducks fan and aspiring hockey writer.

I have been a hockey fanatic since about the age of seven. The cornerstones of my hockey life were watching the original Mighty Ducks movie, the 1993 Stanley Cup Final between Wayne Gretzky’s LA Kings and Patrick Roy’s Montreal Canadiens, and the subsequent founding of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim just a hop skip and a jump away from home.

I wrote a blog at mostly containing my thoughts and views on those very Anaheim Ducks, trying to take as much as possible from the great John Buccigross and (by transitive property) the late, great Jack Falla.

I also was a contributor to Josh Brewster's from 2010-12 and I'm now Managing Editor of SB Nation's own Anaheim Calling.

Kesler for Bonino, Sbisa and a First


Real post coming later today, but my quick reaction is that this is a clear upgrade on Bonino, for a defenseman Boudreau wasn't using in Sbisa and our lower first round pick in what is considered a shallow draft. Good Deal!
