Exactly, I don't get the people overreacting over here.

Lets say Getzlaf was UFA right now... do you think teams like the Leafs, Habs, and some other teams wouldn't give up 8.25M over 7 years?

Only difference is that all cases are front loaded contracts.

I don't think Anaheim spends to the cap every year so 8.25M cap hit is nothing for them.
