Personally, I would prefer Perry over Getzlaf as he would play RW on Giroux's line. In fact, I think he would be a perfect fit.

We seem to have a solid trading partnership with Anaheim in the past (not counting the current Bobby Ryan talks)

So does Perry cost more or less for Ryan?

At the moment, I believe Perry remains clearly positioned in the "untouchable" category. If the Ducks can't get him signed by the trade deadline, that could change--but he'd be tricky to acquire then, given the assets it would take, and his cap hit. Even if they wanted to, I'm not sure that they could trade him right now--it would be tricky to get to the salary cap floor.

To answer your question, though, it would take a package of assets from our "untouchables" list--Schenn, Couturier, etc.
