All these people mentioning Neal, Kessel - get real. These guys are still younger and signed - wont happen. You'd need to get more than Perry. Heck if Neal is going the other way I'd ask for both Perry and Getzlaf expiring contracts....

To be honest, if I'm Anaheim I look to acquire real players - like a Gaborik, bc frankly Selanne and Koivu are old, and sooner or later will retire, if Perry leaves, may as well say "see ya" to Getzlaf. In addition if those two leave, I wouldn't be surprised to see a reawakening of last years Bobby Ryan concerns...

Like if Anaheim could trade all three for a combination of established NHL stars and younger depth.

3 trades:

Perry for Gaborik
Getzlaf for Plekanec
Bobby Ryan for a kings ransom - Stephen Weiss, Versteeg, Gudbranson
I like the Perry for Gaborik deal, but the other two are not needed (especially when the Ducks are in second in the West)
