Anaheim Ducks' system features talent on the wings and depth on defense
The Anaheim Ducks prospect system has a solid core and the future appears to be very bright. The club features great depth with young rising stars at each position. The Ducks have a few skaters whom many believe have the ability to make an immediate impact at the NHL level.
The club has a talented crop of players at each position who will eventually get their chance to make an impact.

There are some things that need to be fixed though, Rakell should be considered as a centerman first. He played and practiced at the center position while in Anaheim.

A couple more forwards whose positions need changing are Kerdiles and Roy from center to left wing.
I'm happy to see Lind receiving some notoriety, but thought there would be more about Welinski and O'Brien considering they're looking to be groomed to be offensive defensemen.
I have to disagree with the goaltending write up. The Ducks lack depth, but Gibson has shown franchise goalie potential. Also Andersen was a great pick up for the Ducks.
Man, did I wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning... of course, snow in Cali is something I'm not used to this time of year. I should be in shorts right now instead of being bundled up!
I have to agree with Hockey Duckie, these articles would have more credibility of the positions were correct for the players in the articles. Listing their positions wrong, over and over again leads me to believe its box score writing and no one is really "reporting" anything.
