Before the season began not many gave the Anaheim Ducks a chance to compete let alone make the playoffs but due to the whole western conference struggling the Anaheim Ducks are currently fighting to perhaps get into the playoffs and make some noise potentially. Coming off back to back seven to nothing wins the Ducks currently sit two points out of the playoffs. Going forward Carey Price is going to be the difference as Anders Nilsson has struggled heavily.
As the season moves forward and depending where the Ducks are at will determine whether they are buyers or sellers. Currently Anaheim has banked almost 4 million in excess cap space that could potentially either add a major piece or help a team up against the cap. One thing that’s certain is that the Ducks are not going to lie down and die for anyone. ”We believe in each other in this room. Going forward we know what we are up against and what we have to do to make it to the playoffs.” Said Ducks captain Jonathan Toews.
The Ducks have two must win games coming up in the next five games that being versus the Golden Knights who seem to give Anaheim problems and the Jets who are having a tough season themselves. Looking ahead the future is quite promising in Anaheim and it can only get better by them making the playoffs. Who knows, maybe Gm Ryan Clarey can get payback on Vancouver from when they took out the mighty wild as an eighth seed.
