Given that Neidermayer's entire reason for signing with Anaheim was wanting to move west, and given that he has shown limited interest in a playing hockey much longer, I'd be willing to bet that he'd retire before acccepting a trade east.

And, of course, Pronger has made it pretty clear that he'll force trades is the NHL city in question does not meet the needs of his family. So, moving him might not be as easy as it sounds, despite the reality that he is a generational talent.

Most of the other teams listed above are so close to the cap, that the only workable solution would be for the Ducks to take on a lot of expensive vets in exchange.

I'll predict, that Neidermayer retires a Duck, whereas Pronger at least plays out his contract there. After that, who knows?
