I have known of earl at the BOC for some time. I like that site because not only do I get info about my team, I also get to read about the other sides of the rivalry. I enjoy the commentary and certainly the state rape graphics created after the California teams sweep those of another state.

Anaheim Ducks Fan Zone has always been there for the good and the bad. Gives a good game preview and then following the game always has an opinion/personal write-up as well as select quotes from players. Also, love the newly added photo of the game -- nice to see!

Battle of California, Ducks Fan Zone, Anaheim Calling and Andy Elvstrand are the most active, so they get a vote from me. Ducks Fan Zone probably has the best game reviews. Elvstrand I know from HFboards. While his blog is new and hasn't built up a reputation yet, I like how he posts up links to online streams (and how he sometimes even shows streams directly in his blog) and that you’re able to find the opponents lines and injuries before games. I don’t really hang out on either though, but when I can’t see the games on TV, it’s nice being able to find all the streams in one place. Thought I should sign up and cast a vote for him, along with the other three I mentioned.

BoC (earl sleek) is the place for great info with all the aspects of too much seriousness set aside. It is a group of 3+ teams that all get along and all love hockey. Go cali hockey!!!!!!!!



Anaheim Calling is very informative and is a great new addition to SBC. Duck and Pucks is my friend SK's blog and is a great one, check it out. Ducks Fan Zone has great pre and post game info, not to mention a cute blonde girl runs the site!!!!!!



go ducks!!!!!!!!!

Saw a guy on the Isles board do something similar to this.

Battle of California TOP 5
Look: Professional look, but still quite simple. Not any Ducks colors, but that's obviously because it's not only a Ducks blog.

Activity: The activite is high and the reporters seems good. But from a Ducks fan's perspective, it might be a little too much considering that the blog includes other teams.

Ducks and Pucks
Look: Ducks colors is a plus. But he could take more advantage of that right bar.

Activity: Seems to be up and down. But still ok.

And He Shoots... He Scores!
Look: Nice colors and simple look. It has a lot of pictures, which I would assume he owns the rights to as the pics seems to be taken from the stance. The righte side bar could be used better here as well.

Activity: Up and down here as well. But still ok.

Out of the Pond
Look: Not sure what to think here. The main text area is half invisible, which looks cool in a way but tends to get annoying.

Activity: Not too good lately, which he seems to be aware of.

Torosviews TOP 5
Look: The side bar doesn't look too good. But the main area is nice and simple with some pictures in it.

Activity: It seems pretty active.

Anaheim Calling TOP 5
Look: As for designs, this is my favorite. Great colors and some pictures. Professional look overall.

Activity: Very active with news of many different kinds.

Ducks Fan Zone TOP 5
Look: Simple look and nice colors and an ok side bar too. Music is nice, but I don't like when it starts per automatic when you load the page.

Activity: Great activity. But could use more news around the team. But as for previews and rewievs, this is a nice blog.

Ducks in the Crease
Look: The text is easy to look at, but the side bar is boring and if it wasn't for the pictures it would be too much white.

Activity: Good activity. Only problem is, it mainly covers the Ducks goalies.

On the Pond
Look: Pretty much no sidebar whatsoever. Only shows the last couple of posts, lacks pictures and is too much white. The text is easy to look at though.

Activity: Seems good.

Quackalackin'
Look: No side bar. And there seems to be some error. I've tried it on two different computers and the text is only visible for the first couple of seconds when you load the page. Then it disappears.

Activity: Seems to be good.

Ducks Nation
Look: Blogspot has a lot of different functions. This blog doesn't really use any. Simple look is a plus in my book, but this might be too simple.

Activity: Low activity in November it seems.

Andy Ducks TOP 5
Look: Real simple but still nice in it's own way. Among these blogs, this might have the best side bar. "Read more" buttons in the posts are a plus. It's a new blog and has yet to post any pictures though. But I imagine that's due to copyright issues.

Activity:
Writer is from Sweden but has insight. Great activity with at least one post per day. This one is barely a couple of weeks old though, but is already drawing som attention it seems.

---

Can't decide which one of "Ducks and Pucks" and "He shoots and he scores" I like the best for the 6th spot.

What happens with the top six blogs? Will they all go (just those six) against eachother in a new poll? Or will they meet 1 vs 1 in three seperate polls?

The 6 winners of this poll will go up against each other in another poll (all in the same poll).
