Also wrong, Getzlaf will get 8.5m next year. Suter gets 22m, Parise gets 22m also.
Was talking about the duration of the contract, not year by year, but yeah, they do get way more. My bad on that front.

And better bet on why Pronger isn't retiring is because he doesn't get paid if he does retire. Still a lot of money left on the table. And his contract continues to count against the cap if he were to retire because it was signed after he turned 35.
