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 thought of Vancouver pursuing these 2 is absolutely ubsurd. They'll have to clear Luongo just to get under the $64m cap next year. Even if you clear Ballard & Booth, you're looking at icing a lineup that contains probably 6 or 7 players at or near league minimum. That's just not realistic.
