Anaheim Ducks Gameday: 8.25 Million Dollars

You will never know what $8.25 million feels like. Getzlaf will. About 8 times over. Photo credit - Stephen Dunn

Blues @ Ducks, and what $8.25 million can buy you.



As we all learned on Friday, the franchise has extended the contract of Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf for 8 years at $66 million dollars, an average of $8.25 million a year.

I don't need to tell you that this is a shitload of money.

Since none of us will ever see $8.25 million, it's hard for us to contextualize it. So today I thought we could take a look at some of the things which that amount of money might buy, in order to put it all in to perspective.

  1. Almost 16 years of Ben Lovejoy

Gameday Prediction: Oh, I don't know... Ducks probably win again. Let's say 3-2. Getzlaf does not buy any of these things.
