The Ducks led the league in goals scored.
The good news is the Ducks led the NHL is goals scored during the regular season with 263. The bad news is that their goal scoring was dominated by just two players: Corey Perry, who was second in the league with 43 goals, and Ryan Getzlaf, who added 31.
Only two other players on the team scored more than 20 goals, Nick Bonino and Andrew Cogliano who each had 22.
Devante Smith-Pelly showed a lot of promise and raw ability in the playoffs and should have a bright future.
Kyle Palmieri is a steady presence and contributes in other ways besides just scoring goals.
Jakob Silfverberg is only 22, but the Ducks expected more out of him than the 10 goals he scored this season.
The veteran leaders on the team this year were shadows of their former selves offensively. Teemu Selanne (nine goals) is retiring after a Hall of Fame career, while Saku Koivu (11 goals) is uncertain if he will return in 2014-15.
The Ducks have a dangerous offense, but they need to develop some better secondary scoring to take pressure off of Perry and Getzlaf. There is some young talent on the roster, but now that promise needs to turn into production.
