30 in 30: Anaheim Ducks

NHL.com posted their Ducks episode of the 30 in 30 article series, that some of you have most likely seen.

Apparently we get the :thumbdown: concerning PO's next year. While most of the points they make have been hashed and rehashed over and over again, I'm surprised they made a point of not having a solid backup. I think the Fasth signing should have fixed that problem and feel like we've got a better backup than some of the other teams in the league.

Fasth is gamble. He have yet to play a game in the NHL. I know he dominated SEl n`stuff but... 0 NHL games

For now, i`m concerned about our play-off chances to. We need another good center.

While we are all hoping for the best, it's true that Fasth is an unproven prospect who we made a serious commitment to. At this point in time I think it is fair to say the jury is still out as to whether we have a solid backup or not.

I think we could end up anywhere between 4th and 13th again. It depends on how RPG rebound and whether the kids are ready for bigger roles. The playoffs are far from a guarantee but it definitely wouldn't surprise me if we made it.

I think if Hiller is in form we'll finish no later than 10th, and be within a few points of a playoff spot at that worst spot. We still had troubles in the second half, but we were still one of the better teams in the league during that time. If we even have a season, that is.

Without an early season to slump in the Ducks should end up in 1st.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that felt that this was a very lame preview of the team

We had top3 defensive pair in the league that year. That helped.

Or the early season slump just starts at the new beginning of the season and there's no time to catch up.

We should make playoffs with our current roster - given that Getz and Perry are back to normal PPG-seasons. Hopefully our younger players can also step up.
