Their stats are very similar with Backstom being a little younger 25 vs 27.
Backstom has an escalating contract starting at $6 mil this season and next then increasing by a 1/2 mil every second year until he hits $8 mil in 2019-20.
Getzlaf earns 6.1 mil this season then becomes a UFA and in a position to break the bank.
Backstrom has had an injury plagued couple years while Getzlaf flat out sucked last season.
Getzlaf plays with Perry (this year anyway) while Backstrum has Ovie
Who would you want?
Even with pims, I would take Backstrom. I own both and I would easily move Getzlaf before Backstrom.
