Rickard Rakell isn't arbitration eligible, so his contract talks could be put on hold while the Ducks address other off-season moves first.
He enjoyed a breakout season in 2015-16 with 20 goals and 23 assists in 72 contests. "They're at a point where we give them qualifying offers," GM Bob Murray said referring to Rakell and fellow RFA Hampus Lindholm. "That is not a time-sensitive issue. That could take well into August and September before that gets done. We'll take our time. Obviously they're very important to the organization and we hope to get them signed and keep them for long term." Jun 20 - 10:00 AM

Rickard Rakell highlights a number of free agents who the Ducks will have to make decisions on during the off-season.

Rakell, Brandon Pirri, Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen are restricted free agents, while Shawn Horcoff, Jamie McGinn, David Perron, Mike Santorelli, Chris Stewart and Korbinian Holzer are potential unrestricted free agents. Roster changes are expected to happen, so some of those UFAs could be let go. Rakell will be re-signed after he posted 20 goals and 43 points in 72 games this past campaign.

Rickard Rakell said that coach Bruce Boudreau was not the only one to blame for the Ducks losing their fourth straight Game 7.

The problem with being a coach is that it's easier to fire one coach than get rid of 23 players. "Bruce is a passionate coach and you can’t blame only him for what happened," Rakell told Swedish daily Expressen Friday. "But maybe it’s time to bring in some new energy and an new voice when you have such a good team and lost so many important games in the playoffs." Rakell had a breakthrough season under Boudreau with 20 goals and 43 points in 72 games as he missed the last seven games after undergoing surgery for an appendectomy. Look for Rakell to improve on those numbers next season so draft him accordingly.
