Despite a summer of big moves such as Alex Killorn, the Anaheim Ducks are dealing with a big problem. They still haven't locked in new contracts for their star players.

The Ducks' Problem

Jamie Drysdale and Trevor Zegras are the faces of the Anaheim Ducks, so keeping them in Anaheim is crucial. Their presence means more than just skill; it's about the Ducks' chances of getting to the playoffs sooner rather than later. Fans don't want to wait another five years for success, especially when the team seemed to be getting better.
Something has happened that's got fans and experts worried.

Drysdale's Unexpected Training Spot

Jamie Drysdale was seen practicing at the Toronto Metropolitan University Men's Hockey Team's facilities. While this isn't a sure sign of trouble, it suggests that things might not be going smoothly between the player and the team. Restricted free agents (RFAs) like Drysdale sometimes train elsewhere during camps to pressure their teams.
Unfortunately, even missing a bit of training camp can make things tough for players, as they'll need to catch up with the rest of the team. This holds true even if a contract is eventually signed, which doesn't look likely right now.
The Ducks' general manager, Patrick Verbeek, is facing criticism for not sealing the deal with these star players. If the Ducks lose Drysdale and Zegras, there is a chance they fail to make the playoffs for the foreseeable future.
