NHL Hockey is in a bit of a dead period right now, unless you’re Alex Ovechkin. The Stanley Cup Finals are over and the Draft is 10 days away. It’s a good time to make some predictions about what happens with the Anaheim Ducks this summer.
FanSided is a multi-pronged business. There are 300+ sites covering sports, lifestyle, tv, etc. Pucks of a Feather is part of the NHL Division. I consider it part of my job to read our other hockey sites. We are an Anaheim Ducks site, but I believe it’s important to get a handle on the other teams.
Yesterday, I was perusing through and I stopped at an article at editorinleaf.com, by their site expert James Tanner; Toronto Maple Leafs: 10 Summer Predictions. I read the piece and started to think about the Anaheim Ducks.
One of the hardest parts about covering a team like Anaheim is that General Manager Bob Murray and his staff are notoriously tight-lipped. Rumors don’t come out of the Ducks Katella Avenue offices. Most of the speculation about free agents or trades you read online comes from third parties. It’s the reason why I take them with a bit of salt.
There may not be any Anaheim Ducks information leaks, but that doesn’t stop us from making a few predictions of our own. The team still has transactions to make and holes to fill. Our Pucks of a Feather staff held a brainstorming session yesterday afternoon and we are ready to make some predictions of our own.
