San Jose Sharks 5, Mighty Ducks 1 probably wasn't what an announced crowd of 11,080 had in mind when they filed into the Arrowhead Pond on Wednesday night. It certainly wasn't what Duck Coach Craig Hartsburg envisioned. Unlike the fans, Hartsburg could afford to be philosophical about the Ducks' first defeat in three exhibitions. After all, Hartsburg had only 12 bona fide NHL players in uniform against what was essentially the Sharks' A team.

Job openings for forwards appeared to be scarce as the Ducks' training camp rolled on with a 5-1 exhibition loss to the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night at the Arrowhead Pond. The top two lines are set, with Paul Kariya, Matt Cullen and Teemu Selanne scheduled to play on the first line and Marty McInnis, Steve Rucchin and Ted Donato slated to compose the second line.

Coach Craig Hartsburg took the Ducks to school Thursday. Instead of conducting practice a day after completing a stretch of four exhibitions in five nights, Hartsburg held a 30-minute instructional session in front of a TV monitor. Hartsburg popped a number of videotapes into the recorder and went over a few things. Some he liked, some he didn't. "[It] was more of a mental day," he said. "We looked at videos and talked about some things. Sometimes you need to give the body a rest.

After weeks of hopeful neutrality, Coach Pierre Page finally expressed his simmering anger over the contract standoff between management and Paul Kariya. The Ducks say they have made two offers to Kariya, a restricted free agent, but have not received a counteroffer from agent Don Baizley. "For the game's sake, for the fans' sake and for the sponsors' sake, they should be talking," Page said. "They had four months [during the off-season] to work out a new deal. They should be talking.

Maybe only a few people took notice when Tom Fitzgerald was obtained by the Colorado Avalanche last week. But the Mighty Ducks took notice Saturday after Fitzgerald scored two goals, one short-handed, in leading the Avalanche to a 5-3 victory. His scoring prowess was just as unexpected for the Avalanche as it was for the Ducks. Colorado acquired him for his skills as a leader and penalty killer more than anything else. But the former Florida Panther provided the bonus that made the difference.

He's the last original Mighty Duck and not about to step aside any time soon. Fact is, goaltender Guy Hebert has been the most impressive Duck in the exhibition season. Competition for jobs during training camp has been at other positions. Hebert has a firm grip on the No. 1 goalie's spot, holding off Dominic Roussel and Tom Askey for another season. Roussel will be Hebert's backup and Askey will be headed next week to Cincinnati of the American Hockey League.

There are plenty of reasons for the Ducks to be excited as they head into their seventh season-opener Saturday, against the defending champion Dallas Stars. But it all starts in goal, where Guy Hebert was superb in four exhibition appearances. His goals-against average was a puny 0.95, but there was more to it than mere statistics. "Guy has had a strong training camp," Mighty Duck Coach Craig Hartsburg said.

Paul Kariya will not play in tonight's exhibition opener against the Sharks at San Jose Arena. Neither will Teemu Selanne, Guy Hebert, Fredrik Olausson nor Oleg Tverdovsky. Instead, Coach Craig Hartsburg will give some inexperienced Ducks a chance to show their stuff. Hartsburg said he will play a more veteran lineup, using Hebert, Olausson and Tverdovsky, against Colorado at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Arrowhead Pond.

It was difficult to pin the blame for the Ducks' 3-2 loss Saturday against the Edmonton Oilers on goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere. Sure, he gave up two goals on the first four shots he faced in his Duck debut. But the goals came on breakaways by two skillful players in the Oilers' Anson Carter and Doug Weight. "It was not the best way to start," said Giguere, who made 15 saves. "It would have been better to get a couple of easy shots first."

Pierre Gauthier, Mighty Duck president and general manager, vowed in April to upgrade his roster in the wake of a four-game playoff sweep at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings. He found one way Friday, acquiring veteran left wing Ted Donato and the rights to unsigned Finnish defenseman Antti-Jussi Niemi from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for goaltender Patrick Lalime.
