Maybe Getzlaf + Palmieri for Hodgson + Myers + 2013 1st rounder + 2013 2nd rounder? [I know the price is steep, but you get a player that is widley considered to be a top center in the NHL and Palmieri was the leading scorer in the AHL last season I believe]
Roy was considered among the top a few years ago. Value increases and value decreases. Your value is way off base currently, both in your own assets and ours. Myers, because of age/contract is worth more then one year of Ryan Getzlaf. You have to understand that 1yr UFAs have their value diminished. If Getzlaf was on a 3+ yr contract, then his value increases...to the point yes we would have to discuss Myers to make Anaheim listen.

Currently, he is not worth Myers. Currently he's barely worth 2 1sts and a good prospect. But that would have to be offered for Anaheim to listen.

Remember, value comes from more then just the player. It comes from everything surrounding him. Contract/Injuries/past seasons/cap hit to name a few. Would an overpayment be required to pry him out? Yes. Would you get anywhere NEAR what you think you would? No possible way, unless the GM was drunk....or Brian Burke.
