Ducks try to bounce back from disappointing season

While the Pacific Division was full of success stories last season, the Anaheim Ducks were unable to add to their recent run of good fortune.

A franchise that went to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in 2003, won its first championship four years later and was just a season removed from a monumental first-round playoff upset of San Jose came crashing back to earth in 2009-10.

As fans around the NHL were marveling at the resurgences in Los Angeles and Phoenix, and while San Jose was carving yet another division title into its legacy, Anaheim was finishing with a meager 89 points, its fewest since the 2003-04 season -- back when the team was known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, and not so coincidentally, the previous time it failed to make the postseason.

In the wake of their 11th-place finish in the Western Conference, the Ducks also took a hit with the retirement of future Hall of Fame defenseman Scott Niedermayer, the captain of their Cup-winning squad. Another legend of the game, Teemu Selanne, is weighing his options as far as playing another season or joining Niedermayer on the golf course.
