Are you ready for some controversy? I believe the Anaheim Ducks are a bit of an underachieving team. Granted, they're younger and need more time to gel. That's a good thing if you're a Ducks fan, for you're one or two good signings from becoming a Stanley Cup contender.

But I can't help but feel they should be doing more, which is why I think they're like the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers underachieved this season and they have a star in Justin Herbert. Like Herbert, Zegras is piloting a non-playoff team, which can get dicey for a superstar.

Just look at the Ducks offensively (111 goals) and defensively (150 goals allowed). Anaheim should be doing more, but they're not. Both the Quack Pack and the Chargers are in Southern California, which makes for an obvious connection. Therefore, surf's up, dude.
