The 90th NHL season is just around the corner. A look at all 30 teams and their chances as training camps open around the league next week:
Anaheim Ducks: The NHL hasn’t had a back-to-back champion in nearly a decade - Detroit last turned the trick in ‘97 and ‘98. Which brings us to the Ducks, who have a legitimate shot at pulling it off. Much will depend, of course, on whether Conn Smythe Trophy winner and perennial Norris Trophy contender Scott Niedermayer decides to come back at some point this season. Mathieu Schneider was a nice insurance pickup by GM Brian Burke but in no way comes close to replacing the skill level, minutes played and leadership Niedermayer gives the Ducks.
read on and a great recap of every NHL team…
