I agree that it's far from the worst contract, but your analysis ignores the dialed-back cap and the implications of the new cba. When Parise was signed all of these details were mere speculation, so other than dollars and cents, you can't use the logic of Parise's signing to justify Getzlaf's contract. That being said, if the game continues to grow G's deal won't be that bad going forward. Right now it seems at least a million too high.
