The Anaheim Ducks will miss the retired Scott Niedermayer this season.

The Ducks have signed Toni Lydman, Andy Sutton and Paul Mara to help their ailing blueline and have youngsters Luca Sbisa and Cam Fowler waiting in the wings, but it will be tough to compete this season without the future Hall of Famer. Look for Lydman, Sutton, Mara and Sbisa to be the 2-5 defensemen along with number one, Lubomir Visnovsky who will play 25-plus minutes on the blueline and quarterback their excellent first power play. It's not exactly the Canadiens defense of the mid-70's.

Scott Niedermayer made his retirement official at a news conference on Tuesday.

But I spent as much time on the decision as I could and came to it basically a few days ago." He will remain within the Ducks organization as a consultant to GM Bob Murray and will surely be enshrined in the Hall of Fame in the near future.
