To expand on this point, here are how the Ducks' injuries in '06-07 compare to two other frequently mentioned teams: the '09-10 Blackhawks and the '05-06 Senators. I mentioned all players with average TOI > 15 minutes who missed more than 10 games. For goalies I estimated.

2006-07 Ducks

J.S. Giguere (1 month? ~10-12 games?)
Chris Pronger (16 games)
Francois Beauchemin (11 games)
Todd Marchant (26 games)

Their core forward group of Selanne, McDonald, Pahlsson, Kunitz, and Getzlaf (and if you want to, you can include Penner and Perry) missed a total of 1 game.

2005-06 Senators

Dominik Hasek (February onward, probably ~20-25 games)
Zdeno Chara (11 games)
Wade Redden (17 games)
Chris Phillips (13 games)
Jason Spezza (14 games)
Martin Havlat (64 games)
Mike Fisher (14 games)

2009-10 Blackhawks
Brian Campbell (14 games)
Marian Hossa (25 games)
Dave Bolland (43 games)
Kim Johnsson (14 games)

EDIT: I think this makes a strong case for the '05-06 Sens being the deepest since the 04-05 lockout.
