Plugging Holes -- Anaheim Ducks

The Hole: A shutdown defenseman

The Anaheim Ducks missed the playoffs, despite having elite scorers in Ryan Getzlaf, Bobby Ryan and Corey Perry -- and getting quality goaltending from Jonas Hiller. The team's problems were mainly on the defensive side of the puck, where they ranked second-to-last in the league with a minus-23.6 team defensive GVT. Fixing that defensive unit should be their main priority this offseason.
