Power players, Getzlaf, Beauchemin.

It’s been a slow week in Duck-land, though a couple items came across the virtual news desk …

1. The “Power Players” — the skimpily clad girls who skate across the ice during timeouts — had tryouts. Check out a photo gallery here and a recap of the event here.

2. Ryan Getzlaf is the 19th-best player in the NHL, according to one writer, who now has the unenviable task of coming up with 18 who are better.

3. Another writer believes Francois Beauchemin is a strong candidate to captain the Maple Leafs. Though Beauchemin has a large contract to live up to, and solid experience on some great veteran-laden Ducks teams, he’s not a vocal guy and sometimes comes across as shy. His game does all the talking, which probably isn’t enough to captain an NHL club.
