Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Contracts for the Big-3
« on: August 06, 2018, 02:55:56 PM »
1 thing that I would like the next CBA to include is either a luxury tax to keep 1-2 stars to max contract (see NBA model)
or the ability to buy cap space, ie 10 Mi over 5 years the team selling gets 50% as money.
50% of the Cap you are buying over time would be very nice to teams in need of money and to teams in need of the cap space. IN the example above, to buy 10mi x 5 years the team pays 5mi x 5 years to the team selling.

Marner and Matthews have deals for this year, and that don't expire until next summer.  They can sign new deals today, but they won't take effect until next year, and associated cap hits aren't relevant until the season they take effect.
I know that, and next year they will have Hansey off and Gardiner as an UFA that is -7Mi off the books, however, those 2 spots should be filled.

My point is, they should extend the Big 3 with less than 22 - 24 mi. Can they do it ?

Today is July 16th.  I predict Wee Willy Nylander will be signed by July 31 at the latest.
To a Bridge deal (2-3 years) until they have some cap relief or to an 8 year extension ?

I think that one key thing that might work very well in favor of the Leafs and the so called hometown discount is that they can sign contracts structured as the Tavares one, low on salary, huge on SB. That way they are covered if a lockout happen.

they do have 14,741,667.00 in cap space (as of today) + 5.3 mi in the Horton's deal.

I don't think that is enough to lock all 3 for 8 years this summer. Someone is getting a bridge deal, and i do think it is Nylander.

One thing that the big 3 might consider is to use the same way that JT contract was structured, heavy on SB and small on salary. They do have a potential lockout coming, and SB would guarantee the money, and that could sweet it up for then.

And just when I thought that this day couldn't be any better, my Lakers signed the King.

General Rumours & Speculation / Re: Tavares
« on: June 30, 2018, 10:32:56 PM »
Saw something on the Twitter suggesting the Leafs offered 1 year at $16m then a 7 year extension.

Sounds unlikely.

I think technically they could offer him a 8 year deal at that point.

They can resign him for an 8 year on Jan 1st. (If he signs a 1 year deal at 16). Tecncally speaking they can overpay the 1st year and get a better 2nd deal.

Won't happen...

Anyway, 1h30 left for the Isles...

Eklund (I know it did surprised me too), came up with a decent idea.

Leafs can sign him for a 1 year deal with tons of money and right after they can start to work on a deal to resign him for 8 years.

Sure they will have to deal with our Big 3 next season too but that could work. Nylander this season and they will work the magic for next season on a cup winning hangover.

If Lou was still the Leafs GM I would be confident that they would pull a move like that. Let's see what Divas Learned...

He decided to listen to 5 teams before make a decision to hit or not free agency.

Leafs are one of this teams, with 23mi on cap space.

Will he pull a Stamkos and stay with the Isles (now with Lou and Trotz) ?

Anyway... 7 days.

Any feeds?

Worst game by Gardiner in the worst time ever

Bench Gardiner. Play Dermott more.

Tonight they will comeback and win this series.

The keys to do it is:

Shutdown Boston's big 3.
Scratch Komarov
Kapanen is due.

Go Leafs Go!!!

Boston big line held off again. They were off 3 times, they lost 3 times... lets make it 4 times on wed.


Awesome game by Gardiner, Brown, Hyman, Matthews and Fredie
