The Ducks are very high on Getzlaf and he almost made the Ducks out of camp. He should make the team next year.

Lupul is a good player. He isn't Mike Bossy but he is a good second line player who can shoot the puck. So yes, he is overrated if you expect Mike Bossy. But I don't think the expectation in Anaheim is such. Personally, I think Lupul in Edmonton would be the worst thing for this kid. The newspaper would expect him to replace Comrie and score 50 goals. He won't do that.

On the flip side, the lack of heat/pressure in Anaheim is what IMO is killing Chistov. The kid plays his best when he's under the limelight and that doesn't happen in Anaheim. When people leave him alone, the kid disappear IMO.
