No.. the numbers were identical per year - Burkie just didn't want to go beyond 6 years:
2011-12 $12,000,000.00 $12,000,000.00
2012-13 $12,000,000.00 $12,000,000.00
2013-14 $9,000,000.00 $9,000,000.00
2014-15 $8,500,000.00 $8,500,000.00
2015-16 $8,500,000.00 $8,500,000.00
2016-17 $7,000,000.00 $7,000,000.00
Cap hit $6,666,666.67 $9,500,000.00
So we basically lost Richards for $3M.
And oh yeah, they have Gaborik and Lundy - it kinda makes a big difference.
As for Getz, as much as I'd like it to happen, I just don't think it will - we'd have a better shot at Perry, but IMO that's a pipe dream too.
When it comes down to where a player wants to go, money really isn't everything.
