If the Ducks want another Cup, he’ll have to tighten up in the playoffs. 8 ANDREI VASILEVSKIY >TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING This will be Vasileveskiy’s first full season without Ben Bishop in town, and that could go one of two very different ways. 9 CRAIG ANDERSON >OTTAWA SENATORS Anderson had a powerful, emotional 2016g17owneitghotohde Syeeanrs-,bthadouygeharhiinsthoirsiccaalrlyeehre. has 10 JONATHAN QUICK >LOS ANGELES KINGS Ravaged by injury once again last year, Quick may still be one of the best – but we’ll have to wait and see. 11 BEN BISHOP >DALLAS STARS aItthwlaesticanneotffmyinedarerfoisr gBeisthtionpg, abuntetwhestbairgt, wi1th2high ex>pSeTc.taLtiOoUnsISinBDLaUllaEsS.

Fortunately, Calgary has a knockout defense in front of him. 21 SCOTT DARLING >CAROLINA HURRICANES Darling was a key acquisition for the Canes, who have been held back by goaltending.
