Neither side is going to like this at all...and each for multiple reasons.

Kind of a bad for everyone trade. Horrible trade idea made by a fan of neither team.

For the sake of salvaging the thread, what would Anaheim want for Getzlaf? (worth a try i guess)

Berglund, Schwartz, and a 1st put us in the neighborhood?

Like someone said in the other thread, if there was a case of Getzlaf getting traded it's likely going to be a like for like so a change of core players, not a picks + prospects.

Well, the examples that person cited were mostly 2 for 1 deals.

Any 1 for 1 swap isn't going to suddenly vault Anaheim back into contention because it doesn't address any of the roster issues that are contributing to their current struggles. If the player that's coming back is a center, it's almost certainly going to be a worse one. If it's not a center, then Anaheim just gutted themselves (even further) down the middle and there's no way that will help them win.

It seems pretty silly to trade a team's best (or second best) player if it's not going to help the team in some obvious way either now or in the future. I guess they could be targeting an "aproximately valuable player" who is cheaper, or locked up for longer...but how many teams on the other side of things are going to be interested in making that sort of deal? Not many.
