from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,
“It’s quiet,’’ Murray said. “That’s the pandemic, the (flat) cap, expansion draft, would be the reasons for that in any order you want to put them in.’’...
There’s also the case of Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim’s longtime captain who is a pending UFA and who has full no-move clause. He’s not going anywhere unless he wants to. Murray has way too much respect for Getzlaf and has a strong relationship with him, he’s not going to ask him to waive. Getzlaf controls the process.
“I do have a good relationship with him and his agent and we do have an understanding, and I said this to him a long time ago, ‘If you do want to go to a contender, you got to come to me and tell me. And then we’ll sit down and discuss who may be interested and where would you want to go.'”
Murray said he just spoke with Getzlaf again before leaving for his trip last week and there was no evidence of his captain being interested in a move.
And in fact, there’s interest on Murray’s part in getting Getzlaf back on a new deal moving forward.
