Ducks Have All The Pieces In Place

from Pierre McGuire at NBC Sports,

In order to win with consistency in these times, you must have a creative and smart GM (Brian Burke is as good as it gets), a hard, but fair coaching staff (Randy Carlyle and his staff of Dave Farrish and Newell Brown are all of that), and plenty of good young players (Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Dustin Penner, Travis Moen; you can add Bobby Ryan and Brendan Mikkelson to the mix).
It does not hurt that the Ducks also have top defensemen like Chris Pronger, Scott Niedermayer and Francois Beauchemin locked into contracts that make sense.
Maybe the San Jose Sharks or the Detroit Red Wings will be able to challenge them in the West, or maybe the Vancouver Canucks can add some more offense to push the Ducks, or perhaps the Calgary Flames can be more consistent.

more on a possible Ducks dynasty…
