They aren't in school yet and probably don't have a lot of local ties. But the wife thing is still a good point.


As to the OP, sure the team would take a pretty good sized step back. But I don't think it will be the worst team in the league. And there's a lot of good-but-not-great prospects to help fill holes. Like damnskippy said, the team would end up shifting to a scoring by committee type setup.

If her parents live out here, I imagine she'd want them to be close to their grandparents.

Yes but that doesn't really matter in terms of having young children vs older children. And that it falls just as much under the "wife is from ____" than having to do with the kids.

Having your parents nearby to help take care of young kids does matter. Well, unless your parents are awful. Most parents would rather have their kids watched over by family than a stranger.

That's something worth considering. But still is more to do with a) wife being from here than specifically about the kids and b) more about children in general than young children vs older children.

Let me put it this way. If you have to move your kids, when would you prefer to do it? I think it's while they're young.

Yes, if those two leave to free agency and those two retire, it would make a big void on the Ducks and they would have to seriously consider any chance of contending for playoffs next year without some big FA acquisitions and youngsters stepping up big time.

But, that's not likely to happen. I mean, Koivu and Selanne retiring... well.. i'm excited to see some youngsters take over their roles, personally. its been a little too long of the Selanne retirement show.

if the Ducks let Getz and Perry walk, well, then they badly handled their assets, not getting anything back in a trade.

Nah we can't survive.

We'll be relocated to Montreal, to be Montreal Canadiens Jr and we will live happily ever after with Gomez as our #1 center, and Vatanen as our #1 goalie, #1 dman, GM, Head Coach and mascot. Ole

Even if you are able to get something interesting at the trade deadline for Perry and Getzlaf, if you loose those 4 players, you will become undeniable the worst team in the NHL. Good chances that Anaheim becomes the new Edmonton Oilers (Rebuild for 3-4 years with high overall picks)

What your thought on this? Can your franchise survives this?
I heard theyre gonna demote us to the AHL and then promote the Calder Cup winner.
