Getzlaf is such an overrated player. He's a PPG guy playing with loads of talent in Anaheim. Do you expect to maintain that level of play here in Montréal? I'd say he'd be a 70 point guy with the Habs, which is only slightly superior to Plekanec. He has a good defensive game, but not quite on Plekanec's level. He's not much of a goal scorer either, with a career best of only 25 goals. So basically, he's been feeding the puck to guys like Perry, Ryan, Neidermayer and Pronger over the years, which gives him decent totals, but the truth is that he'd never get that sort of support in Montréal.
