So really, Getzlaf isn't that much of an over payment...the # just seems large b/c we're used to seeing contacts with the low $ years tacked on to the end.
The only thing really saving it from being the worst contract in the league is the fact that Anaheim's center depth beyond him and Koivu is laughable at best.
