While I don't disagree entirely with the notion that the Ducks lack depth in certain areas, that comment seems wildly odd. Our three most important players in (and half of) our top-six are Getzlaf, Perry and Ryan - none of which are prospects or near-40-year-olds.

There's one 40-year old in Selanne. Koivu will be centering the third line. We're left with two spots for prospects, and in Palmieri and Holland/Bonino we do have a couple that have proven enough at all lower levels to deserve that chance.

Now, if we were to talk about what happens next year in a scenario that sees us left without Getzlaf or Perry, that's a vastly different matter.
