With training camps opening across the National Hockey League, every team is a potential Stanley Cup winner and every player is primed for a potential career season. But between new personnel and battles for roster spots, here are some of the main questions fans across the League will be asking.
Who earns the open spot on the Ducks' top line?
When the Anaheim Ducks traded forward Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Senators during the summer, they opened a spot on the team's top line alongside All-Stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. That right wing spot hasn't been filled yet, although coach Bruce Boudreau will have an interesting group to choose from, including 2010 first-round pick Emerson Etem and future Hall of Famer Teemu Selanne.
"I thought it was a good move," Getzlaf told NHL.com of the Ryan deal. "We got our kids who played really well last year and got some good experience. We're looking for more things out of them this year."
