    Thompson could start the year on the shelf because of his shoulder surgery, so Wagner would end up being the 4th center. I liked his game at the end of the season. I remember his call up in February in a game against the Kings and he looked very good, winning big draws against Kopitar and Stoll.

    You would think that Wisniewski is on his way out after being a healthy scratch for most of the playoffs. Doesn't exactly speak to his overall utility when he can't even barely get in the game. They've got enough guys like Vatanen, Fowler, Lindholm (and Theodore on the way) who can contribute on a PP1 / PP2 unit, and Wiz just isn't really necessary to their plans going forward. I would be very surprised if Wisniewski is a Duck come 2015-16.

    I'm pretty sure Wisniewski didn't dress for any of the Ducks games in the playoffs..

    Some quick hits on the Ducks moves so far

    Wiz for Khudobin - Freed up cap space as Khudobin only has this year left and Wiz has two. Next summer is a big one to re-sign key guys, so getting that extra year off the books is key.

    Hagelin and a pick for Etem and 2 picks - Hagelin brings a lot of speed and I can't wait to see him and Cogliano on the PK. 5 on 5 I think he will move up and down the line up, but either way I like the pick up

    Beauchemin not resigning - Was kind of shocked he was looking for so much at this stage in his career, but he got a team to pay up so good for him.

    Bieksa for a pick - I'll take it. RH shot, mean D man. Good replacement for Beauchemin and ended up re-signing for another 2 years for cheaper than Beauch too. Also since he is a righty, it allows Lindholm to move to his natural side.

    Signed Shaun Horcoff - Good veteran centerman, Thompson is out to start the year and probably won't be back until November so he will be a fill-in for him, and once Thompson comes back I'd like to see them move Rakell back to the wing to free him up offensively.

    Ducks are the favorite for the Cup next year. Shrewd moves, definitely the best and deepest team on paper.

    With Andersen gone, this is Gibson's crease. Hopefully the Ducks can sign someone like Jhonas Enroth (maybe he wants to stay in SoCal) to a cheap two year deal. He signed with the Kings for only $1.25M last season. With all the RFA we have, we need a cheap back-up option and will probably sign a two year deal because of the expansion draft next summer.

    At a season ticket holder event last weekend Murray said its a matter of when, not if, for Rakell and Lindholm. He said they have enough money put aside to match an offer sheet.

    How has Nick Ritchie looked in the preseason? Should I expect a decent season out of him pointwise, like upwards of 40 pts?

    I'm watching their game tonight and I really think that the lack of offense will put them outside of the playoffs.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about it... Last year they started 1-7-2, while averaging 1 goal/game and going 3 for 30 on the PP. Then they went 45-18-9 with 53 for 212 (25%) on the PP the rest of the way... Their first 3 games were on the road too, so that should be taken into consideration. Not and ideal start, but not the end of the world just yet...

    Why did they re sign Lindholm? He seems like a guy that will need to QB the PP, but between Fowler, Vatanen and Theodore, one or more will need to take a back seat.

    Vatanen looks the safest. But Lindholm and Theodore seem like the guys with the biggest potential.

    Just confused also as to why he went back there given he isn't guaranteed Top PP time.

    Lindholm was a restricted free agent, the Ducks were his only option to play in the NHL. I still think the Ducks are going to trade one of Vatanen or Fowler. Lindholm is too good defensively for him to be traded.

    I can't believe that no one has posted in this thread since Dec 2016! Okay chuck, well done on calling on one of Vatanen or Fowler to get dealt!

    This team is still capable of being a top contender in the West on the backs of the trio of 33 year olds (Getzlaf, Perry, Kesler) as long as they all stay healthy...a long shot with those three! I do like the potential of their youth as well. We'll see I guess.
