Perry won't get paid more than Getzlaf so if the team offers him this same contract and he declines then he's gone in my opinion.

And for those thinking this is an over payment, read this post from the other thread

Like someone else mentioned, get used to this. No more extra/dead year loop holes. You don't think Anaheim would've went with a 12 year $68 mil deal instead of this if they could?

Take some of the other notorious contracts (actual money next to it);

Hossa first 8 years: $59.3 mil
Luongo first 8 years: $57 mil
B. Richards first 8 years: $59 mil
Kovalchuk first 8 years: $79 mil
Parise first 8 years: $80 mil
Suter first 8 years: $80 mil
Shea Weber first 8 years: $92 million

Getzlaf at $66 million falls in there.
