The Anaheim Ducks are a team whose core and identity are in transition. The core has begun to age out as Corey Perry was given a buy-out in the offseason and Ryan Kesler will miss the entire 2019-20 season due to injury. The 35-year-old will have two seasons remaining on his current contract but is there any tread left on that tire or desire to return to the NHL after missing an entire season to a rebuilding team? It’s doubtful. Even if he wants to return it is likely he will receive the Joffrey Lupul treatment.
