Ducks season review: Reasons for optimism despite an abysmal record

The Ducks finished last in the Pacific Division and second-to-last among the NHL’s 31 teams. Their 17-30-9 record was the worst in team history, based on a .384 points percentage. The 8.9 percent success rate of their power play was the worst in the league’s modern history. There’s more – a lot more, of course – but you get the idea. This was a clunker of a season. But it’s over now. Let the reckoning begin and the rebuilding continue. It appeared the jobs of general manager Bob Murray and coach...

This season, McDavid is on his way to the breathtaking figure of 100 points or more in 56 games and will be the runaway winner of the Hart. Draisaitl, meanwhile, w...
