Again, I repeat as it seems to fall on deaf ears here - NO TEAM HAS DONE THIS, NO TEAM DOES THIS AND IT STANDS TO REASON THAT NO TEAM WILL DO THIS. And this is a constant reality that has spread over many years and multiple CBAs.
We saw last year what almost happened with Nashville.
GMs dont want a star player walking with nothing in return.
In MLB the team would actually get compensatory picks if they lose a UFA so they werent going to get hurt trading for upcomming free agents. Last year they changed the rules so now if its a pure rental you arent getting compensatory picks if you dont have them at for one full season.
Because Anaheim is in the race this is why the idea of trading Perry for #1 picks and rebuilding prospects cant be done.
Which is why I have suggested they trade Perry for an established replacement RW + added needed depth at another position.
some of the suggestions would be:
Perry+ for Gaborik +
Perry + for Kessel +
Perry dealt to another team for picks/prospects that then get sent to Buffalo for Pominville
