We aren't getting Getzlaf or Perry for that matter. Just like why didn't get Brad Richards, Rick Nash, Parise, Kovalchuk, Jeff Carter, the Sedin twins, Stastny, ROR, Backes, Ovechkin, Stamkos and Crosby and just about every other player this delusional fan base thinks will end up a Leaf
I think people are more surprised by the fact that he signed for so much.

Getzlaf makes 8.25 mill next season, while Crosby only makes 545k more than him.

I get that you are suppose to develop your own talent, but the Leafs are so far beyond that now. But that's an argument for another day.
