nhlrealtalk.com

LeBrun reported this morning that talks between the Ducks and the 25-year-old defenseman are expected to resume next week. It won’t be cheap to re-sign Fowler, who can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Note: As the Stanley Cup Playoffs continue, we’re bound to lose some friends along the journey. The Anaheim Ducks have become the “good … not good enough” team.

Expansion draft will force Ducks to make some big decisions
nhlrealtalk.com

Bob Murray managed to keep the Anaheim Ducks together for a shot at the Stanley Cup. If the Ducks decide to protect seven forwards and three defensemen, the blue line will definitely be worth watching. Bieksa, 35, has a no-movement clause, so unless the Ducks find a way to get around that, they’ll need to […]
