Top Ducks Players Still RFA Ahead of Next Season

All is not rosy in the Anaheim Ducks' camp. They might have gotten some valuable assets this off-season, but the issue remains: they haven't signed their young talents, Trevor Zegras and Jamie Drysdale.
Being the future of the franchise, ensuring their stay and satisfaction in Anaheim is definitely a top priority. Their absence could significantly delay the Ducks' return to playoff contention. The fanbase surely doesn't anticipate another half-decade-long wait for victory, especially when momentum was just picking up.
A recent development has raised eyebrows among fans.

Drysdale Seen Practicing in Toronto Amidst Training Camp

This promising defenseman was spotted at the training grounds of the Toronto Metropolitan University Men's Hockey Team.
While this doesn't mean the end of contract negotiations, it certainly raises questions about the rapport between the player and the franchise. It's commonplace for RFAs to explore external training options during camps as a strategic move, but that's never the ideal scenario.
However, even brief absences from the training camp pose challenges for players, who'll need to catch up with their teammates.
So, even if an agreement is made soon, the damage is already done.
Patrick Verbeek, the Ducks' GM, doesn't look good here. He missed out on doing the most important thing he had to do this summer, and fans don't like it.
Our fingers are crossed that this will be dealt with soon.
