NHL Trade Rumors: 4 Teams That Can Meet Ducks Asking Price for Ryan or Getzlaf

If we let reality set in, the chances of actually seeing the kind of blockbuster deal that would send either Bobby Ryan or Ryan Getzlaf out of Anaheim is highly unlikely.

In fact, I would make the case that such a deal wouldn't represent desperation on the Ducks' part, but rather desperation on the part of another team who was in bad enough shape to offer up the staggering price tag for either of these two cornerstone players.

Ryan and Getzlaf aren't just point producers, they're players that you build a team around, and if Anaheim lets them walk, the return will have to be gaudy and would probably involve more then one prime prospect and multiple first-round draft picks.

The team that is able to afford this asking price would need to have a relatively successful young team with a lot of talent some offensive production to spare. That makes our list of Ryan and Getzlaf bidders very low.

Aside from the four teams mentioned here, we won't see too many other clubs with the mix of prospects and heavy talent up front, who could afford to make such a huge investment.
