Leafs Media Rumours / Re: Report: Leafs sign Par Lindholm

Most importantly, before the puns come in, his name is pronounced like pair/pear/pare.

Pär pared a pair of pears.

Well, I'm relieved that Dubas has listened to my concerns, and addressed the issue of adding size to the wing.

 :P
As well,at this pay level,Dubas can afford to bring in another max contract type player.

 I can,t help but think that this is a great signing.To get a heart and soul player,still in his prime and from Toronto.  This is huge.

I originally made the comment that I would not make Auston the captain right now.

Well, sort of. You said in your comment it would be "because he might be gone in a year" which, you know, isn't going to happen. Beyond that I think a lot of people are hesitant to make him captain right now for some legitimate reasons, namely he just might not be ready, but as Zee has said, even if the organization did want to make him the captain they wouldn't do it without a long term commitment agreed to beforehand.

  Agreed on that.If he signs long term then he deserves the captaincy. I,d even donate $5 bucks to his contract.

  Your right Nik, however Mathews might balk at Babcock,s coaching style and may not be easy to sign.

There's a veritable whole wide world of things that might happen. I think you need to start dwelling in the realm of probability rather than possibility before it influences your decision making though.
I originally made the comment that I would not make Auston the captain right now.I was drawn into the reasons why,which was not my original intent I,m not trying to put a negative to the Tavaras signing.
This our year to win the cup.

Yep, just because it was rare in the past,doesn,t mean it won't happen.There,s lots of pressure on Gm,s too improve there teams. I can see Arizona doing it,if for no other reason than to get fans to fill their seats. And make a huge impact in the southern states.

This sort of ignores the reason why offer sheets are so incredibly rare. Teams know that they'd have to make the offer so high, and the compensation so steep, that it would probably be a net negative for them. They're not good hockey decisions by and large unless you're dealing with a team that's pressed right up against the cap which the Leafs won't be.

It's a pointless exercise. Either a player is good enough that matching the offer is worthwhile, in which case their team matches it, or he's not worth the contract he's offered in which case it doesn't help the team offering it.

That was another reason,you might not want to give Auston the captaincy. I,m also wondering if Tavaras isn,t the back up plan,just in case.

if someone offer-sheets marner for the max, you take the 4 first round picks for him, sign the best UFA D for his money and smile to the bank.

Good point,we still win.  Isn't a max contract worth 5 1sts ?

  Offer sheets for the max amount,one for Auston and one for Mitch.  They can probably only match one.

Well, first of all, in that scenario the one you match is Matthews without even a tiny little bit of hesitation. But even then that's insane. No team is going to cripple themselves by paying 16 million a year for Mitch Marner.

That might be true for Marner,however I just read a thread that those 3 guys could get 350 points next year.

  I would not name Mathews captain,he might be gone next year.

Why in the world would he be gone?

So you're expecting one team to offer sheet both players or separate teams to offer sheet each player? The league that doesn't offer sheet players like ever? Okay

General Rumours & Speculation / Re: Tavares
« on: June 26, 2018, 11:05:30 PM »
I,m still wondering how serious the Leaf offer is. Do they want him for just 1 year and go for it?  or are they angling on a 7 year deal.  If they do go for the 7 can they fit all the top players in the cap ?

Or are they playing safe if Mathews and Babcock can,t exist together and can,t make a deal in the next year.  Taveras becomes the no.1 center.

This has probably been discussed here already but i,m trying to figure it out.

There are many other teams that are very serious so I can't imagine the Leafs would waste his time if they weren't as well.

The Leafs have every reason to be serious.  They can definitely fit Tavares and the big 3 under the cap.  Can they fit Tavares, the big 3 and Gardiner?  I can't remember.  It may depend on the details of what they all want.  But even if they can't, I think Tavares > Nylander.  So if they were forced to trade Nylander, it wouldn't be so bad as he'd fetch a kings ransom in prospects and draft picks.

  (Tavares + Nylander for 1 year + the return on the trade of Nylander) >>> Nylander

So it makes sense to grab Tavares no matter what in my mind.
  If they move Nylander down the road then I can see where they make up the space in the cap.Probably a good trade off.

NHL Transactions / Re: Domi to MTL for Galchenyuk
« on: June 16, 2018, 05:21:52 PM »
I actually think that this trade will finally work out for the Habs ,unlike their previous ones. He will bring spark to a team that,s been lacking in excitement.
Like the spark he brought to Arizona? Not a fan of Domi at all. Arizona got the best player in the deal. Being a Leafs fan, I like the deal.
I hear what your saying,I,m enjoying the Habs futility,but they made so many sideway trades and worse.The law of averages probably gives them a break and they win a trade finally.
I know Domi didn't do much there ,but he may change in a hockey market like MTL.
