It is very rare that a team could potentially lost is top 4 forwards, I just wanted to know your thought on that and the chances it could happened?
And no I am definitly not a anaheim ducks expert :-P
The chances of losing any one of them are pretty good, but the chances of losing ALL of them are very slim.
If it happens, as you say, there will be trades for assets coming back, and we have a prospect cupboard that, while lacking superstar-level talent, is full of prospects that project to having long, good careers. At worst there'd be a bit of a lag in the standings, and then the team's character would change from what it's been (a star-driven vehicle) to a more mid-level committee of scorers kind of team (like Nashville).
Because we'd retain Hiller, and because our best prospect depth is arguably in goal, that's a pretty plausible result. I think it very unlikely that the team would become the worst team in the league in the long term, and probably not in the short term either.
