What teams can afford Perry and Getzlaf? Vancouver will have no trouble at all if they excersize the buyout options teams now have. Another possablity is that the Sedins retire to Sweden. Either way, Getzlaf and Perry become the new top line and Vancouver continues to compete at an elite level.
The Sedin's retiring to Sweden would be stunning given that they won't turn 33 until next September. That would be beyond shocking. There is no realistic way they could manage both guys, even with the buyouts. They need those buyouts or to clear lots of salary to make this even a remote possability. I just don't see it at all, especially because if they are leaving the Ducks it will be for pretty massive salaries. Not the buy into the team stuff they have gotten most of the Vancouver guys to do including the Sedins.
