from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog at the OC Register,
Getzlaf’s agent, Gerry Johannson, told the Register on Friday that he has regular conversations with Ducks GM Bob Murray but the two sides have opted to start discussing numbers soon after a new CBA is reached.
“I don’t expect anything before Saturday,” Johannson said. “Ryan loves Anaheim. It certainly has been a great spot for him and he wants to stay. I just think there’s uncertainty there with what’s going on. We’re just going to hang tight.”
The Ducks have publicly stated their desire to sign Getzlaf before he becomes an unrestricted free agent next summer and Johannson said he hasn’t gotten any impression of anything different in his talks with Murray....
The next deal could find Getzlaf commanding up to $8 million annually. Johannson said talks with the Ducks have gone well to this point but there’s been no discussion on term.
