This is not overpayment...this is similar to other UFA deals without the garbage years tacked on at the end.

Zetterberg was getting about $7.5M the first 8 years.
Kovalchuk was around $10M the first 8 years.
Weber is over $10M the first 8 years.
Richards is at $9.5M the first 7 years.
Parise/Suter are at $10M the first 8 years.

Getzlaf is getting less from this deal than Richards/Parise who I think are good comparables. The fact is he is 27, and he will still likely be an effective player at the end of the deal. The new CBA worked, the cap hit is around his actual value.
