Getz looks like he's going to play out his career here in Anaheim. If I recall correctly, we did not have a quote-unquote star player to play a full career with us. This is somewhat valuable in and of itself.
As far as prices go, Marners and McDavids cost north of $10, even if we somehow manage to sneakily trade for a diamond in the rough at about $5-7, I still think Captain Baldsman is worth more to the actual hockey team (not franchise) just for his pure leadership qualities alone. The up-and-coming generation is pretty soft needs to be put in line, Fowler is a mess already, a shapeless amoeba in terms of gritty leadership like Kes, Prongs, Nieds of old. Even if Getz is reduced to 3d line center in 2-3 years at below $4, he's still worth it.
He was under the proverbial radar the past few seasons with the focus being on HCRC and Bob's trades for pre-injured guys, but this season, he's shining like a supernova, his alpha-dog status on the team is so phat, like yo mamma would never imagine. If it were not for Getzlaf, we would be 99% wallowing at 31st in the NHL and nothing would save us from it. It's not all Gibson and Lidholm, Getzlaf is the rock that this team is embedded around. Think Marleau of the Sharks. Sure, they traded him away, but look who's back. So, if we can squeeze some more C-awesomeness out of him, let it be.
