I actually like Getzlaf, but the more I see him, the more I wonder if our perspective of him here might actually be a bit inflated, because for whatever reason the guy kills the Wings singlehandedly.
There's no denying he's a great player. But it seems like he often brings his best when he plays the Wings. I've heard from some Ducks fans about him disappearing for long stretches and having some lazy tendencies.
I'd love to have him on the Wings, but at the cost of Zetterberg? Not so much.
EDIT: and why did the OP get so many minuses just for making this suggestion? It was pretty good idea for a thread and elicited discussion here when there's not much else going on.
people are overreacting that he elbowed datsyuk... how many times has he ever done anything like that?..... compared to everyone else in this league he was a class act you are just wrong to think otherwise
