14. Anaheim Ducks

Previous: No. 10

Record: 32-21-10 (74 points)

Anaheim is currently two points out of second place in the Pacific, with Calgary just two points out of that spot. It could be interesting if the Ducks fall to a wild card, but could still be capable of doing some serious damage. Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Ryan Kesler are leading the team in scoring to no surprise. The trade deadline should give some more clarity of this team’s identity if they want to trade some of their defensive depth for scoring.
