You would think since the Ducks gave him the max in terms of contract length, he would at least give them a bit of a break on average salary for something in the 6.75-7mil range. Now you have Perry who is gonna expect the same, so you have 16.5mil tied up on 2 guys and a salary cap that's gonna drop by 6 mil next season.
Can the Ducks afford that though? Ducks fans know more about their owner than I do. For a team that struggles to even make a little money with their whole hockey operation dishing out 2 monstrous contracts seems like bad business to me. Perry is going to ask for at least what Getzlaf is making IMO. So starting next season you're going to be paying 16.5 million dollars for two players for the next 8 years. That's like a third of the cap lol
