Top 5 Prospects
1- Trevor Zegras
2- Sam Steel
3- Troy Terry
4- Max Jones
5- Maxime Comotois
John Gibson (G)- Gibson is the heart and soul of the Ducks. Gibson has held this team together and is in my opinion one of the top 5 goalies in the league. Gibson can easily steal several games for the Ducks, however the Ducks must provide support for him as evidenced by their collapse last year.
Nicolas Deslauriers- Acquired from the Canadiens, Deslauriers was not good for the Habs last year only putting up 5 points in 48 games.
Anthony Stolarz- UFA. Stolarz is a solid AHL starter who can help in the bigs if needed.
Andreas Martinsen- UFA. Martinsen will be a guy who will likely either provide depth or play in the minors.
Michael Del Zotto- UFA. Del Zotto is the Ducks best acquisition and will provide some support on the blueline.
Corey Perry- The former Hart Trophy winner was bought out after injuries have hurt him recently. He signed with Dallas.
Kevin Roy- Became a UFA. Signed a deal with Florida.
Andrej Sustr- UFA. Left for Europe.

My Prediction for the Ducks: The Ducks are entering a rebuild. They have a nice solid forward prospect core that they have picked up but they need to shed the awful contracts they have. If John Gibson plays out of his mind, there is a tiny chance the Ducks could make the playoffs but I don’t see it happening.
