The Anaheim Ducks are amongst the top teams in the West this season. Headlined by Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, the team is getting superb goaltending from Jonas Hiller and plenty of supplemental scoring from their depth players. If the team is so good, why target other players? They must find suitable replacements for Saku Koivu and Teemu Selanne, as well as strengthen their depth. Here are the top five players that can do just that.

If the team chooses to replace Koivu, Dave Bolland is a good choice to do so. The former Chicago Blackhawk and current Toronto Maple Leaf has had a tough season due to injuries, yet he is still a great two-way player who contributes at both ends of the ice, similar to Koivu.

If Anaheim wants to go with a more skilled replacement for Koivu and have solid offensive center depth, then Mikhail Grabovski is the man they should target. Grabovski is incredibly talented, and though he dropped off with the Washington Capitals due to injury, he is undeniably skilled and can put up good numbers. He wouldn't be the most expensive option, either.

Teemu Selanne may have taken a step back this season as age catches up with him and other players come to prominence, but that doesn't mean the Ducks can leave that spot empty. Radim Vrbata is a great goal scorer and would work well under less pressure instead of being the go to guy like he is in Phoenix. He would be a great complementary piece behind Corey Perry on the right wing.

How about a comeback player? Mason Raymond fizzled out with the Vancouver last season and did not get re-signed, only to come into the Toronto Maple Leafs' training camp and earn a contract. From there, he has played better than expected, including scoring 19 goals on the year. If Anaheim wants speed and scoring ability on the wings, Raymond is their man.

There have been persistent rumors that Ryan Miller wants to move closer to his wife in California. While St. Louis is a step in the right direction, Anaheim is right where he wants to be and could have a potential opening if they don't sign pending unrestricted free agent Jonas Hiller. Miller has played well with the Blues, and if he wants to play for a contender, Anaheim will be right there with an offer.
