People are surprised? Guys this isn't the previous CBA, theres a cap on years. Id rather this AAV then some silly cap-circumventing contract that is sure to bite you in the ass down the road

CONGRATULATIONS! You moved on from the goal scoring argument.
Your next challenge will be to move on from the one year argument.

Getzlaf isn't the 4th highest paid player in the league. He has the 4th highest cap hit.

That is definitely a lot of money, but you gotta spend to keep your star players.

If this is the price to keep their captain and top center on the team, I am sure Ducks fans will gladly pay it.

So what's the alternative? Hold the line on salaries, and probably then lose your two best players to free agency in the offseason, and be content to bottom-feed next year? Or dismantle a team that looks like it has a legit shot at contending this year? Is that what you want in a GM?

All GM's make decisions based on keeping their jobs, because keeping their job is predicated on winning. I'd be more concerned if my GM was making decisions that would likely lead to him losing his job, but hey, good luck with your team I guess.

Great player not as young as he used to be but can still bring it , he's a star player that's for sure , but the cap hit is a bit much he almost got UFA money which kind of defeats the point of the home town discount.

Off the top of my head, Perry has only out produced Getzlaf in one season. This set the max for Perry to receive from the Ducks. They won't pay him more than Getzlaf.

The Ducks had a choice - sign him before the lockout to a circumvention contract and have a 6-7M cap hit until he's 40 (like everyone else is doing) or pay him his actual fair salary in cap hit until he's 35 (and likely still somewhat productive). Pretty easy call for a small market.
It should be encouraging to Ducks fans that fans of Western Conference rivals don't like this deal

Getzlaf isn't the 4th highest paid player in the league. He has the 4th highest cap hit.
Just so you know, the cap hit is what matters more because it affects how much a team can spend on players to hopefully one day win a championship and the salary of a player isn't a factor in such matters. Therefore, all that would matter too fans and how a team operates is the actual cap hit. The more you know!

If his play falls off as quickly as his hair this will be a horrible deal.

Have fun with that contract when Getzlaf is 34-36 and scoring five goals a year.
Zetterberg is 32 and will get 7.5 per in cash until he is 36y and 7 the year after. Well, when you look at those contracts most of them are quite similar. Franchise players, and Getzlaf is one, get those numbers. Just look at the numbers of the top contracts and look at the salaries not the CAP hits.

The deal is solid, not great but solid! Well done Bob!

I'm so glad you're here to tell us what really matters, especially with a smaller market team like Anaheim that traditionally doesnt spend to the cap because they have an internal budget.

I have no clue why Red Wings fans care so much. Getzlaf won't even be in their conference next year.

The fact that Anaheim has an internal budget and can't spend too the cap makes this deal even worse.

Wow huge overpayment for him. He hasnt even scored more than 20 goals in a season since 2009. He was pretty bad last year, it was nice of him to get motivated this season for the big pay day. Anaheim is going to regret this about 2 months into next season, I dont think he would have gotten this much on the open market.

Except you're forgetting the fact that the Ducks are a budget team, and don't spend to the cap anyhow.

**** yes. They could have given him 9 mil and I would've been happy. I'm not footing the damn bill.

They have the cap space, and they simply could not afford to lose Getzlaf.

So, you're saying that you know more about what Anaheim is willing to spend than the owners, and the General Manager? That's bold.
