Goals don't get any more of a boost than assists, so aside from the random stats like SHG and GWG you go with the guy with the higher offensive upside which is easily Getzlaf..not even close.
Not to mention i'd argue you needed more help at the C position than at RW on your squad. Before this deal I assume Shaw was your third C? Now you have an elite three at C and you have four decent options at RW.
I don't see any reason to doubt this deal.
Yes, I did need help at C. In fact, I hadn't drafted a C yet, and it was relatively late in the draft. I'd stocked up at RW, and saw the opportunity to move one out (Cally) to acquire my 1st C of the draft (Getz). Shaw was drafted a little later to shower up my C's.
