ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf have ample motivation to do something remarkable in the Anaheim Ducks' shortened season.

While they attempt to improve on the Ducks' recent past, they're also playing with their futures in doubt.

Perry and Getzlaf will be unrestricted free agents this summer if they don't agree to new deals in Anaheim, their home for eight seasons as linemates and friends.

Anaheim general manager Bob Murray opened training camp by expressing his strong desire to re-sign Perry, the goal-scoring former NHL MVP, and Getzlaf, the Ducks' captain and top playmaker.

But both sides must make decisions before a deal is done. The Ducks must figure out how much they're willing to spend on two 27-year-old forwards with top-level talent and disappointing recent results.
