My head hurts. Not nearly as much as Chicago and Anaheim's collective butt after that trade.
How badly do Hawks want Getzlaf, and upgrade at 3c w/Boyle? And do so without trading more than two pieces offer their suggested line breakdown? Besides Sharp, there is no established regular given up, with the other names mostly a cup of coffee to date, with different schedules of when they will 'arrive'.
IF IF IF IF IF IF IF IF the Ducks want to pay top dollar for Getzlaf, then simple, don't do this or any other trade including Getz, and pay the guy! The OP assumes the Hawks can make a satisfactory offer. But Chicago, like Anaheim, extremely thin at C. Rangers could satisfy both, but make themselves thinner still at the pivot in the process. So these two trading partners have to overpay. The Hawks pay with players, the Ducks downgrade. [Consider Richards about 80ish% of Getzlaf, Stepan about a third of Perry.] But if Ducks are not likely to pay big bucks for both, they either let both walk and go for cap space, or trade out. Richards is close to Getzlaf, the difference between Stepan and Perry is their real cost for this deal).
