Where did I do that?
In fact, I posted about three lengthy posts where I compared Getzlaf's contract to recent ones of Richards, Parise and Suter and concluded that he actually took a pay cut relative to them and under the new CBA rules, they would be getting >9M a year.
I don't think this deal is an overpayment, it's just old spending habits under the new CBA. Top players like Getzlaf will get >8M now regularly.
I just took objection to one poster who claimed Getzlaf was so elite that he would be a top-5 point getter for the next eight years.
