Huh? Neither Kovy nor Nash were sign-and-trades (Nash still was signed, though). And if the whole "sign"-part of things was actually an option, why would we even bother with the "trade"-part? Or do you mean just allowing other GMs to talk to them about potential contracts beforehand to potentially increase their value?

Teams with own top-10 picks aren't going to trade for Getzlaf/Perry, because of their UFA status. Only teams in the playoff-hunt will look to add these guys for their run, and those usually don't have top-10 picks. With the new design of the draft lottery, I suppose there's a chance we could move into the top-10 if a team adding one of them ends up still missing the playoffs and wins in the lottery.

The teams in the playoff hunt won't trade star players for them, either. That certainly wasn't the case in the Kovy-trade and it wasn't even the case in the Nash trade. Top-10 picks as well as star players aren't a reasonable expectation at this point in time if we were to trade them.
