Getzlaf has never scored more than 25 goals in a season. He's coming off a 57 point season last year.
Last year was a blip.
He has scored 404 points in his last 396 games or 84 points per 82. He's also a point per game in the playoffs.
To be honest I dont know why I need to bother with numbers, just watch the guy play. He is absolutely 100% a dominant franchise player. Anyone can see that.
He's not Eric Staal.
You're Getzlaf is better.
He's also a pending URFA which means his price tag is going to be higher then Stall's was when he signed his current deal.
If Getzlaf is worth $8.25/year, $6.1 per Sedin is a fucking steal
The Sedins deal is way under valued.
Again, put it in context.
Getzlaf is a pending URFA. 8.25 in the free agent market gets you a second line forward and a second pairing defenseman, if you're lucky.
What would you rather have....
A 6'4, tough as nails, point per game center, or a second line wing and second pairing defenseman.
There would be a line up of NHL GM's waiting to pay Ryan Getzlaf 8.25.
Again for context, the first 8 years of Zach Parise's contract pay him 79 mill so just under 10 mill per over that period. I hope no one here thinks Zach Parise is as good as Ryan Getzlaf....
