Let's look at this Hypothetically:

C - Ryan Getzlaf
RW - Cory Perry

To Anaheim
RW - Phil Kessel
C/W - Nazem Kadri
RW - Clarke MacArthur
1st round pick

This would be contigent obviously on a "sign and trade" format, that would bolster up the trade value for the Ducks to get legitimate peices for the future and the present. The Leafs lose out on players that can be seen as replaceable by either this trade, prospects or the UFA market next year. Usually when a team waits for the UFA market to open, these rental players are already signed by the teams that pick them up.
I don't see the excitement of trading Corey Perry for Kadri, MacArthur and a 1st. I don't think that is what Anaheim would be looking for but I guess it would depend on how Toronto starts this season and if the Leafs would once again be picking in the top 10.
