A new season means a blank slate, and there are a few Anaheim Ducks we’re hoping to see make a comeback during the 2019-20 season.
Last Tuesday, the Anaheim Ducks announced their official schedule for the 2019-20 season! A new schedule means a chance to start fresh, and there are a lot of hopes and expectations that the coming season will bring about a lot of positive changes for the club. A new coach, a new team philosophy, and a few practical roster changes will hopefully promote a constructive environment that will help the 2019-20 Anaheim Ducks thrive.
The 2018-19 season was difficult, in more ways than one. Allowing the players to sit through most of the season stewing in such a toxic environment was not conducive to team-wide success. The entire team adopted a losing attitude, often skating onto the ice already feeling defeated.
Several players who were expected to step up throughout the season took several steps back. The development of other players was also suffocated by the destructive tactics promoted throughout the season. No one was willing to be accountable, not even the coaching staff or the front office. However, with 2018-19 now behind us, it’s time to look forward to the new season.
Bob Murray has taken several steps over the offseason to ensure that his team finds success going forward. He’s made it clear that if his players aren’t willing to adapt, there is no longer a place for them in Anaheim. With that being said, there are five players we hope will make a “comeback” in 2019-20.
