I believe in taking care of your own players. Teams that do this, generally are better teams, long term. Having said that, Getzlaf's style of play just would scare me outta signing him to an 8 year deal.
He's only had a couple semi-major injuries, one being a freak accident, and the other having more to do with their playoff chances being eliminated(was just shut down for the end of the 2010 season), so I'm not too worried. He plays a rough style of play, but so do many others, and they've been fine.

If 8 years is a concern, then what about the 10+ deals everyone else was getting in the old CBA? Even if they play less physical, that's much more of a risk.
