Getzlaf was a bargin!

His cap hit is just inflated because of new CBA but so will all new signings from now on.

Here is his value compared to other superstars, if they were all signed under new CBA with same salary.
Getzlaf 8 years (8.25m)
Crosby 8 years (13m cap hit)
Ovechkin 8 years (15.5m)
Kovalchuck 8 years (12.5m)
Suter 7 years (14m)
Parise 7 years (14m)
Weber 7 years (15.7m)

Over the next few years Getzlaf makes less money then all of these players. Parise and Suter each make 22m next year.

He costs more to Anaheim then those players for cap space, but he is cheaper then all of them for how much the owners are actually paying him next year. This is the new era, top players will all be 8m+ cap hit, No more diving 100m+ contracts to less then 8m a year cap hit.

Wait till Malkin has to resign, or Giroux/Toews/Kane ect.

Teams will now be alot closer to the 64m cap space, but they will also be paying alot closer to the 64m salary rather then sitting at 40m cap and paying 80m salary.
