Wee seen them plenty last season, and the reputations and names are still the same. Getzlaf . Kesler . Perry . The Anaheim Ducks forwards truly blend size and skill, their top six being filled with tall power forwards. On the other side, their bottom six is not all that impressive. Antoine Vermette is their third line center. That right, there a center on this roster below Vermette on the depth chart, namely Nate Thompson. While the top six is as fearsome as any team in the league, the Ducks could certainly be deeper and may not be able to roll four lines against the Predators.With less size and more skill, expect much more open ice in this series than the last six games the Predators have played.The Captain Leads the WayWhile other forwards on the team may have less than stellar reputations around the NHL https://www.predatorsoutletshop.com/Roman_Josi_Jersey-21, Ryan Getzlaf has always been a respected player. Despite being 32-years-old, the 6’4” center has been reinforcing that respect this postseason. After posting five points in four games against the Calgary Flames in the first round, Getzlaf exploded for ten points in the Ducks’ seven-game-set against the Edmonton Oilers. With eight goals and seven assists, Getzlaf trails only Evgini Malkin among remaining players in the playoff scoring race. Ryan Getzlaf is a great starting point, because so much of what he does resembles how the rest of the Ducks play hockey. Namely, Ryan Getzlaf gets to the net to score goals, and so does the rest of Anaheim. Courtesy of hockeyviz Roman Josi Jersey.com Aside from the point, where the Anaheim defensemen prey, the forwards crash the net. Players like Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler will use their size and strength to force their way into the front of the net and, once there, they thrive. Looking at the red bubble on the right side, it is right where Corey “the devil himself” Perry sweet spot is.In the last playoff game in which the Predators faced the Ducks, Corey Perry was constantly taking shots from this area of the ice. He loves getting the puck off his stick there and does a great job of using defenders’ bodies as screens. always looking to move the puck just a little bit to change the angle or shoot through an opponents’ legs Marek Mazanec Jersey. The Predators are going to not only really lock down on Getzlaf and the other Ducks forwards in front of the net, but they need to always keep one eye open for Perry drifting to his sweet spot.Kesler SyndromeNo, I not talking about a planetary affliction, but Ryan Kesler has been shutting down top lines for his entire career. The line of Kesler, Jakob Silferberg, and Andrew Cogliano has the same identity as any line Kesler has ever played on. They hit, they skate, and make life absolutely miserable for opposing forwards.
