Getzlaf: "I don't want to go anywhere."

Getzlaf: "I don't want to go anywhere."

There seems to be a rumor going about that" Getzlaf is unhappy and wants out" of Anaheim. Here's an interesting read to both his take on being "available" and on his wanting out, so at least maybe the ridiculous lowball offers can stop.


Quote:
"It was more of just a kick in the ass for me," said Getzlaf, 26, who spent four years with the WHL's Calgary Hitmen.

"Hopefully, we'll continue to improve this second half and we don't have to worry about those rumours again. (Anaheim) is exactly where I want to be. I don't want to go anywhere. The city has been unbelievable to me and my family. My wife is from there. It's definitely where we plan to lay our roots and stay there as long as we can.

"I know how this business goes, and Bob is under pressure and I wasn't doing him any favours. He's shown a lot of faith in me in the past and I'll try to repay him for that."

Given how precious a commodity the Olympic gold medalist is, many believe Murray's declaration was borne simply out of frustration, with an aim to light a fire under three guys who love living in California.

"I'm sure it had a little to do with that but I'm also sure if nothing happened, he probably would do it," said Getzlaf, whose 29th-place club took a three-game winning streak into last night's game against Calgary.

"I'm sure he was hoping it would do what it did. I haven't talked to him yet and I don't need to talk to him. In no way was I taking it personally. It's a results-based business and I know that. I want to be in Anahaeim, and I'm going to work to earn my spot."

Why else would we send Kyle Cumiskey down to the minors? Connect the dots.

No, it means that as long as he's producing (and he is) there's no reason the GM would accept a lowball proposal because there's some reason he wants out of town. So people should stop making.......lowball proposals they justify with false rumors. I really didn't think this was so complex.

Is he going to say... umm yeah Im not happy here and I want a trade to Toronto? Didn't think so... hes just saying that so when he is traded to Toronto fans in Anaheim respect him. Getzlaf to Leafs is more likley than ever now, the people that disagree with me are reading to far into this...

"My wife is from there."

Notice how he says "there" instead of "here?" Clearly he wants out.

If he wanted out he would keep his mouth shut and not go out of his way to do interviews explaining that he wants to stay.

Why would he want to move his wife and kid from sunny California to Toronto where he has to put up with the most delirious fan base in the NHL? Not to mention he and Phaneuf apparently don't get along at all.

Not sure if serious. Getzlaf will be a Duck when the trade deadline passes.

(Insert spinning of quote that makes it sound like Getzlaf is unhappy and will only go to Toronto).

(Insert poor proposal that terribly undervalues Getzlaf and terribly overvalues leafs players).

Once you criticize my proposal:
(Insert reasons why Getzlaf isn't really that good anyway and say that I don't even want him, despite the fact that I proposed a deal for him).

Getzlaf can stay or go to 28 other teams, don't care as long as it's not my team.

Yea, I don't want a PPG Stanley-cup-winning physical big-hitting center to play on my team either.

Getzlaf for Crabb, 7th round 2014 pick, and future considerations.

Is the value there?

Why wouldn't you want to play for the ducks? Great area to live and their team has a bunch of great pieces. They're only a few pieces away from being able to dominate like they did a few years ago.
