Whicker: William Karlsson is the Vegas star who got away from the Ducks

Whicker: William Karlsson is the Vegas star who got away from the Ducks

The Golden Knights center who once was an Anaheim Duck should have been in the finals of Hart Trophy voting. The better he plays, the worse the league's brain trust looks.

Projecting Lindholm

Projecting Lindholm

Already considered a star, does the hype match the player? And what can we expect going forward? They say that you shouldn’t attempt to evaluate a defenseman until he’s played 300 NHL games. Having been selected in the 2012 Entry Level Draft, the Swedish born Hampus Lindholm, knocked over that milestone in the past season and has now played in over 400 (including post-season contests). A great deal of hockey, and a boon for playing on a near lock for a Pacific Division playoff team. This past season, was perhaps the most trying for him from an outside perspective. Entering into the...

NHL Entry Draft 2018: Part 1 - Depth Assessment

What do we have and what do we need? The NHL entry draft will take place in Dallas on June 22nd and 23rd and the Anaheim Ducks hold selections in the all rounds except for the 7th (traded to Toronto for Jhonas Enroth last year). So lets break down the organisational depth as it stands today to try to ascertain what position the Ducks should pick at. I couldn't and wouldn't do this on my own - mostly because if I am completely wrong at least I won’t be alone in that. So I have begged Benny to give me his thoughts also; so he can be completely right and I can be mostly wrong . With that...

So, the big question left is who should us Ducks fans be rooting for to win the cup? Western Conference San Jose Sharks Let’s...
