I think the point of the thread was to find a way to convert our most valuable asset we can afford to lose into Perry. Not to make a hole to fill a luxury.
I think he means what Canucks would ASK for if it was Kesler going to other way. Impending UFA status isn't exactly a hindrance to the Ducks getting what they want for a player of this calibre. Not with half the contenders in the league interested in him.

It's not about fair, it's about ANA getting what they want. If they don't, there's a good chance they can re-sign him and Getzlaf anyway.

With all due respect to the OP, spoken as a fan of the Canucks...without Perry I don't think Vancouver is that strong of a Cup contender this year. Hope I'm wrong, but I think 2011 was the year and it just didn't work out.

Even WITH Perry and their current roster, it'd be no sure thing Rey get past the 2nd round. IMO.
