NHL.com continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.
Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray isn't interested in bringing in more new faces, at least not to start the 2014-15 season. Murray acquired a half-dozen players in the offseason who will play significant roles, and they need to be integrated quickly.
That's why Murray declared on the first day of training camp that he's not inclined to, say, beef up his defense more even though Anaheim has about $9.3 million worth of space under the salary cap, according to CapGeek.com.
"I want to get to the 20-25 game mark, where we've played enough home and road games and we've had hopefully, healthy people, and I can evaluate where this hockey team is at," Murray said.
"Obviously we have good cap space left. Obviously we have some pretty good assets if I feel a need for a change in the hockey team. But let's get to that point. Let's see what we have. There's seven new bodies in that dressing room. There's some jobs up for grabs this year. We've got some great competition for certain jobs here. You can figure out who they are and I hope the players have got it figured out."
