If we were getting Getzlaf AND Ryan, it wouldn't be hard to see Phil go at all. Estabilshed #1 center + "physical" 1st line winger for sniping 1st line winger + 2nd line center + potential top 4 D + 1st.

I'll take Getzlaf and Ryan. We'd be set up front for a while. While Grabo's an amazing 2nd line center, they are much easier to replace. I'd take this deal and run.

edit: That being said, knowing our luck with draft picks, I'd prefer if the 1st was conditional on Getzlaf's production. If he scores more than 70 points per say, even if it is top 5, they take it. If he doesn't break 50 and we're at the bottom of the barrel, it's next year's. Of course this all depends on whether or not it's an "extend and trade". If Getzlaf doesn't sign with us, we get completely shafted.
