Also how many all-star, elite level guys go to UFA only to sign with same team? Most do it to go after who pays the most or put themselves in a better situation.
Well yes, if they go to the open market, they'll be gone. Point is they could re-sign in Anaheim and not test the market.

There is a drop in the salary cap next year, and under the new CBA, I believe 6years is the longest term and there's a limit between the money being made in year 1 and the final year of a contract. So, no more cap circumvention.
This means less teams will be able to afford those guys. Maybe the teams that will be able to afford them won't be the ones that those guys are interested in.

Then again, maybe they don't care and want out.

I just don't see the point in getting too far ahead. If those guys are available, we will obviously be in the hunt.
Now let's focus on Game 20..
