ANAHEIM, Calif. – Two days after Detroit abruptly ended the Anaheim Ducks' season, they still can't believe they're already done for the summer.
The second-seeded Ducks expected a long playoff run after winning the Pacific Division with the best points percentage in franchise history. None of it helped in their seven-game loss to the Red Wings.
General manager Bob Murray built a potential Stanley Cup contender around cornerstones Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, but he promises the same team won't return in the fall. Murray intends to add more toughness and depth while expecting the Ducks' promising young players to get even better.
Teemu Selanne hasn't decided whether he'll be back for a 21st NHL season, and Saku Koivu also plans to wait a few weeks before announcing whether he'll play again.
