Unfortunately I can't say I'm shocked that Getzlaf is getting this contract. If the Ducks were able to tack on 6 more years at a lesser salary it would have likely reduced the cap hit to the 6-7 million range.

This 7/8 year limit will see top line players get inflated cap hits and with the rising minimum salary the loss will be taken by the bottom 6 forwards and bottom pairing defensemen that would have made 1-3 million under the old system.
