This has probably been answered, but I was just wondering what the odds are that he re-signs in Anaheim. Usually there is some indication (or "feel") of whether a player is willing to re-sign. I'm a Leafs fan, so let's clear that one up quickly and I'm not speculating on or proposing a transaction of any kind. This is merely a question to Ducks fans as to whether they feel as though he will re-sign.
Will he? How much? Term? Traded? Bought-out? ... last one was a joke
If you asked me to put odds on the two returning, I'd say 80-20 for Getzlaf, and 50-50 for Perry. Getzlaf just seems very rooted in Anaheim as far as his personal life goes, has been quoted as saying he wants to stay, and would probably take a slight hometown discount in order to do so as long as the Ducks treat him well in the negotiations.
Perry has given the "let's wait and see" answer when asked about his upcoming free agency. He strikes me as the type of guy who would love to remain in Anaheim, but would expect them to match any offer and that could prove troublesome because teams will open their wallets wide for him.
As a Ducks fan I'd obviously love to see both signed long term, but I wouldn't be devastated if they signed Getzlaf and dealt Perry for the right package or young player at some point this season. Perry is a great player but Bobby Ryan can quickly fill his shoes, and the Ducks have young players on the horizon who look like top six players ( Palmieri, Holland, Etem, Rakell maybe even DSP).
Hopefully him and Perry get 5-6mil contracts for 6 years each.
Hopefully, but I'd expect both to get more money. Six years sounds about right, but I expect Getzlaf to sign soon for about $6.5-7.2MM per (pure speculation not from any source). Teams will offer $7MM+ long term to both guys if they get to UFA.
You think so? I would think they could get upwards $8 million easy on the open market. Maybe not Getzlaf if he has another off-year.
Getz will sign and soon IMO. It's almost a sure thing IMO (team lacks centers, family roots, loves area, etc...)
I think he signs a 7 year 50 million deal.
Ducks will use that to try and re-sign Perry. Perry is tricky. He's always been a small talk guy off the ice. Even before his last extension. He doesn't reveal much. His comments are somewhat worrisome for Duck fans but that's because we were hoping we'd hear something like Getz has been saying. It could simply be Perry being Perry or maybe he's not convinced of the future here. Who knows.
If Perry is moved, it will be for someone who's willing to send a package centered around a young player. Philly has the pieces to do it.
In the end I believe the following:
95% certain Getz signs a 7 year 50 million deal.
60% certain Perry signs a 8 year 62 million deal. (Murray will use the 8 year advantage to help him get it done)
