So for anyone holding their breath that Toronto was a realistic option for Getzlaf or Perry, may not want to.

Getzlaf and Perry both love Anaheim, they were just biding their time to see what direction the Ducks were headed in, and if they were pleased, discussions would begin.

I can see them both agreeing to take a small 'discount' in order to stay in Anaheim and continue to pursue the playoffs.

Another team that may be looking to make some noise through player movement in the west is the Wild.

They feel as if they have a legitimate chance at making noise in the playoffs with the additions of Parise and Suter, but have seen some growing pains.

They may need a slight shake up to get this team in gear and there's several pieces in Toronto that could help a struggling Minnesota Wild. They'd need to send some salary out, but they'll have more salary to work with closer to the deadline.

Both of these teams could be very real destinations for the likes of Clarke Macarthur and Cody Franson. (One or the other)
Id like to see Toronto keep Franson. He is only 25 has 5 points in 8 games and has a good shot. Plus he is our only right handed defenseman which are hard to find and he plays solid defense. I believe there is still a lot of untapped potential in this guy. MacArthur though can be traded for picks.
