Plenty of teams with more success than us will be throwing out long contracts and lots of money to him, I'm sure.
The usual players won't be. NYR, Philly, Pittsburgh, Boston etc. Most of them have little space to use on yet another forward and a lot of them need to upgrade their defence. FA's are not dumb to just look at the teams standings. They'll obviously realize that if they were to join the team and play a position that we are sorely lacking that the team will improve tremendously. FA's don't join a team that are years away from competing, we can become a cup contender in this one summer if we can pull a minnesota. But at the end of the day it's about whether or not the player likes the city and if the money is enough.
I don't know if we have a chance or not.... but on paper we could fit them in salary wise. I highly doubt it though.
If you have the time and energy, look at all the clubs that already have number one centers, plus all the other clubs that lack either cap space or budget plus a couple of non TO locations that would have to kidnap an FA to bring him there. There really aren't that many options if he decided he wanted to leave.
He already has a Cup, he gets to play with Kessel which is likely a lot more attractive than beside a Kris Versteeg or a Drew Stafford and maybe he wants to be the #1 game in town. If he actually wanted to explore his options they would need to show him positive potential rather than another floundering year so that means at least getting out of the bottom 10. It might be academic if the Leafs flounder some more.
Based on most of the other big name FAs I have to think Getz is 80% likely not to go anywhere. Of the two, I think Perry would be the one to go, but still most likely he stays. There is some concern on the Ducks Board they might lose one (yes just Board members but they know their situation better than we do). I can't figure out what the issue there could be. Schultz wouldn't give them a chance but Selanne will die in a Ducks uniform They sucked last season but are just a year removed from 99pts. It doesn't strike me as a place to run away from but not good timing for them to have another bad season if G & P are pending FA.
