Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks Agree On Enormous New Deal

The Blackhawks were duck hunting on Sunday night.

The Anaheim Ducks have reportedly signed Ryan Getzlaf to an eight-year, $66M contract ($8.25M cap hit).

As The Fourth Period reported earlier, both Getzlaf and 2011 Hart Trophy-winner Corey Perry were set to hit unrestricted free agency this summer; this move further complicates the relationship between the Ducks and Perry’s camp.

    13% of their payroll on one player. Not sure how good of a strategy that is.

    This also scares me when I think about what Toews will now demand.

    Yes, I thought this New CBA would bring contracts back to Reality!!! Not!

    Does not bode well for next year’s Hawks FA’s…. and signing all… or perhaps the rule will be Pay the proven guys and sign/control/screw the younger guys!!!

    Carcillo or Bollig, our 1st round pick, & Dylan Olsen for Corey Perry as a rental.

    If it helps us win the cup, I think it’s more than worth it.

    Rumor is that it’s going to take a roster player, 1st rounder, and decent prospect…I think the above fits the bill.

    That would be great, but I doubt the Ducks are in a hurry to move Perry to a team that they will likely play in the conference semi/final round (depending on the next few weeks). If they would consider it, I would be shocked if Carcillo/Bollig did the trick. Trades go 2 ways, so, except in the cases of pure salary dumps by bottom-feeding teams, your trade partner has to like something about the guy(s) coming their way in return. Maybe a guy like Bickell (which would be a no-brainer for us) or Saad (considerable but with long-term concerns, as he could turn out to be special).

  5. Mike says:

    It will be interesting to see if the Ducks move Perry before deadline. However I doubt the Ducks or Hawks are interested in making the other a better team. It always seems that the hardest guys to find impact players who do not command huge money…AKA Thomas Holmstrom, his last 3 or 4 years were around $2mm. I think there will be plenty of high dollar talent available the next few years.
