Only one team had negotiating rights with Getzlaf and Perry, and Anaheim still had a little leverage if things didn't work out. You look at what Richards and Carter got Philly, and Getzlaf and Perry could have gotten even better returns.
They would've gotten Hossa/Kovalchuk-type returns. Richards and Carter didn't have the option to walk at the end of the year.
