What are the Ducks doing? Talking about next year (l:laexaminer; p:laexaminer). Every time a team loses, they talk about how they’re just going to make a few small adjustments and then kick ass next year. Just once I’d like a team to say “This year was as good as we’ll do. Leave us alone.”
UPDATE: Smart Puck reader J. points out that the Carolina Hurricanes stood pat after going to the Finals in 2002. He also cited the Anaheim Angels, but I’m tired of writing about Mouse-owned teams.
