I would do terrible, terrible things to get Getzlaf on the Leafs. No way the Ducks are dumb enough to trade him though, regardless of the package coming back. If anyone on the Ducks should be untouchable, it should be Getzlaf.
Then again, they did give us Lupul AND Gardiner for Beauchemin, so you never know
Bergie, Schwartz and a 1st is def not enough for Getzlaf, they won' t be alone bidding for him.
I can see these teams giving better offers than yours, on theother hand the previous offer would definitely top these off, it's very rare that such a high caliber center is available and the price is always extremely expensive.
NYR Dubinsky, Erixon, Kreider and a 1st or 2nd
PHI Schenn, Couturier and Meszaros
BUF Roy, Armia, 1st
MIN Clutterbuck, Granlund a 1st and 2nd
Then we add a pick or a lesser roster player, but we aren't trading arguably our best forward right now in Oshie and arguably the best prospect in the world in Tarasenko.
i expect the flyers to be right there come playoff time amongst the realistic contenders. holmgren will swing a deal to bring in a dman to help compensate the loss of BCP and they will be off and running.
