@icemancometh: More Perry: "Getzy and I have talked a bunch of times. I'm not going to sit here and say yes or no. (1/2)
@icemancometh: (cont) Itís one of those things where Iíll wait and see what happens. I'm not going to change my answer just because he signed." (2/2)
This to me says Perry said he wasn't going to discuss contract negotiations with the media at the start of the season, and he still isn't going to discuss contract discussions with the media. Nothing more and nothing less.
He'd have to get 9.43M from another team to get the same guaranteed money from another team over 7 years though - that's not going to happen. So he'd either have to force a trade or give up money for movement rights.
As far as trading Getzlaf, it's still doable. They'd just have to retain salary. The NMC is a bigger impediment to moving him than his salary. Which is market value, and a reward for being underpaid 3 of the last 4 years.
