There was a lot of anticipation leading into the start of free agency this year.
Although there wasn’t any one star player teams were bidding for, there were a lot of support players that could add depth to the organization, especially defensemen.

Who would the Ducks acquire to fill this spot? Ehrhoff? Stralman? Boyle?
Free agency came and Ducks fans quickly had their answer.
The Ducks went after Minnesota Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner, which led many Ducks fans to ponder, who is Clayton Stoner, and why did we just sign him for the next four seasons?
