It's only really interesting in that it signals that Getzlaf and Perry, in addition to Ryan, are also potentially on the block -- I would say it's more a signal to every player on the team WITHOUT a NMC. But I don't think we're in that hunt.
I think he's trying to shake up the team, too - for the GM to come right out and say "I'll trade anyone"...you don't hear that very often. They fired Carlyle and brought in a pretty big name in Boudreau to replace him. What else is left in the motivational cupboard?
