The thing the Ducks have going for them is Corey Perry. The NHL's leading goal scorer (50), he finished at 98 points and starts this season as the one player the team will lean on the most.
When Ryan Getzlaf, Bobby Ryan and Perry are all healthy and at their best, the Ducks are the scariest team in the Pacific division. Getzlaf needs to come back stronger than last season and last all 82 games. If he can do so, he may be able to post 90-plus points.
Behind their top line, the Ducks rely on a group of youngsters and old pioneers. Finnish countrymen Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu are both nearing the end of the illustrious NHL careers. Last season, at 40, Selanne posted numbers that should come from somebody 15 years his junior.
Scoring 80 points, he helped keep this team afloat after both Getzlaf and the team's beast of a goaltender, Jonas Hiller, both went down with season-ending injuries. If Anaheim can keep the team up and running, they could quite possibly be the highest scoring team this year and run rampant through the playoffs.
