08:28 AM ET 07.31 | These days, Bobby Ryan remains perhaps Anaheim's most talked-about star who could be on the move, but the near future holds even more expensive intrigue for Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. Both are due to become unrestricted free agents next summer. ... For both players to get in on the action of the ridiculous front-loaded, double-digit term contracts we've been seeing lately, the time to strike is now. Because chances are by the time both players become UFAs next summer, the new collective bargaining agreement will have placed term limits on contracts. Perry and Getzlaf will be 28 years old by the time their theoretical extensions would kick in next summer, meaning they'd potentially have at least another decade remaining in their careers.

I think Emilio Estevez in the Mighty Ducks movie summed up my feelings about this when he said: "quack".

Don't ever ask a question like that. Especially of Canuck. I know that a dignified, cerebral man of intellectual acumen such as yourself shouldn't be subjected to the whims of his like!
