Unlike Fowler, who wasn't going to be looking at that type of contract, neither Perry or Getzlaf were going to be signed before the new CBA, because the changes to it were expected to benefit Anaheim. If the Ducks were a team like Philly or New York where money is no object, I expect things would have been different, since those longer term, bloated contracts are exactly what part of the CBA addresses.
Well I think most of us knew Perry Getz and Ryan were winners since there first couple NHL seasons. I'm just disappointed that they weren't signed long term earlier. If we locked up them on last contract negotiations this thread wouldn't of been created. That's just my point of view.
