Four straight seasons of over a PPG tends to make a pretty strong statement regarding Getzlaf's chances here.

& he perhaps is already on his way there. He already at age 19 has surpassed Getzlafs career high goals scored in a season.

Thus I dont think it's far fetched to suggest that he may one day soon be at least as good as Getzlaf, perhaps better. He's 7yrs younger, is under contract for the next 7yrs. Getzlaf after this season (?) will be a 28yr old UFA, so yes IMO Seguin is the most valuable asset in this proposed deal.
Ryan Getzlaf's career high in goals is 25. Don't make it sound like some big accomplishment. You're trying to, what? Punish Getzlaf because he isn't an older version of Seguin? That's a laugh. Getzlaf is a passer. An elite passer at that. Any other season, and Getzlaf basically matches Seguin's offensive totals with just his assists.
