Ducks management now faces some tough questions about the rest of their financial structure, as they’ll have about $53 million committed to 16 players next season. It’s likely that will force the team to part ways with a key player or two, but it’s clear that Getzlaf and Perry remain the core of one of the NHL’s biggest surprise squads.
