Much like how he delivered the Sedin twins to Vancouver, I could see Burke doing something crazy and landing both Perry and Getzlaf. They'll end up being a package deal, like what we saw just recently with Parise and Suter and with Drury and Gomez before that.

Hartnell is close friends with Richards and Carter and I could see them coaxing him to sign with LA if the Flyers fail to re-sign him. Then you have the whole Sutter-Iginla relationship which could also play an influence in dictating Iginla's decision (should the Kings be interested).
I would love Hartnell. He would be #1 on my list of players to get. Sucks he is coming off a career year though. Sky-high price both through free agency and trade, but the Flyers are arguably our strongest trade relationship, so something could be worked out. Especially given our strengths are defensive depth and up and coming goaltending, and their needs are defensive depth and up and coming goaltending...
