If we were talking about Perry, I would probably agree that his future is uncertain, but Getzlaf is committed to the Ducks and vice versa, and he isn't in a situation like Suter where he's in the shadow of another.
I guess you can see how Getzlaf's desire to re-sign with the Ducks and nowhere else kind of depreciates his value to every other team. Any team trading for him is trading for 1 year of him. Is one year of a 90 point player worth 10 years of a 60+ point player who hasn't even come close to hitting his prime yet? Not to me anyway.
