If I remember correctly and I will check back after I go to cap geek, it was a contract to the age of 27-28, exactly the UFA age. I think you are missing this point with Nash, Kessel, and maybe Tavares.

Players have no choice until they hit 27 or the UFA stage on what team they are on, unless the parent team trades them.

Perry and Getzlaf can leave now if they don't like the direction of the team, comparing young players is not accurate, because they have no choice unless they pull a Kessel, but the team can still match. As Stamkos found out last year.
