The question for the Anaheim Ducks’ roundtable this week will be the following: Are the Ducks’ a top three team in the Pacific Division?
Sitting in the thick of things in a competitive playoff race, the Anaheim Ducks are fighting with a number of teams for one of the top eight playoff spots. With the Central Division being yet again a strong division in the West and looking like they are going to take the two wild-card spots, the Ducks want to be in the top three in the Pacific to ensure that they make the playoffs.
Should the Anaheim Ducks be considered a top three team in their division? In our second weekly Anaheim Ducks roundtable, we had LA Sports Hub’s NHL contributors give their take:
I’m going to cheat, the answer is yes and no. Yes because the Anaheim Ducks have the talent to be a top three team. They still have Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, and they added Adam Henrique. Getzlaf and Perry are second and third on the team in points and Henrique has 12 goals in 30 games since coming over from New Jersey.
No, because the Ducks have been inconsistent this year, they’ve struggled on offense putting them 18th in goal scoring and struggled defensively sitting at 20th.
If they want to be top three they have to step it up soon.
