Anything can happen but I don't think Getz' comments at the end mean too much.

Even if he is declared a UFA the day they sign a new CBA I'm sure he will still talk to the Ducks before signing anywhere else. Having an exclusive window is nice but it isn't like he doesn't know somebody would offer him more than the Ducks. If there is an exclusive window and he wants those offers for leverage he will just wait anyway.

I think the key is the Ducks have to offer him a good (read - big) deal to make sure he knows he's wanted. If BM tries to go cheap during an exclusive window he might just cook his own goose.
