I can tell you one dude who doesn't mind if old Willy takes his time amongst the fam-jam in Stockholm. Kasperi Kapanen. Every game he plays on Auston's right keeps adding those hundreds of thousands to that second deal ;)

Had to catch RedLeaf's GIS. Great dubb! Back home, 5th in a row and we are rollling.

It looks like Andersen is hurt.  Knee injury.  I hope it's not serious.  They say knee injuries are the worst possible scenario for a butterfly style goalie.  Hopefully Sparks can fill in nicely for a bit.

Go out there and make a career Sparky.

Just listening to PTS right now with Bobcat and Shannon and it's like offer sheet, Matthews, Arizona, offer-sheet, offer-sheet, why don't they, offer-sheet...

So you offer-sheet the max $16.25 (20 percent of cap) and all you do is piss off another team, they match and prices across the league go up further. Neither them nor their guests have said this yet. I guess it makes for good radio. There's no way a team doesn't match with a superstar they drafted.

Go Leafs Go!

Leafs Lunch today. I really like Mike Johnson. Carlo Colaiacovo joins him and Andi.

Willy is going to be a superstar for years to come. The dude is going to be just awesome. I still miss watching him and I'm sure his mates do too. At no cap or 1-2 other stars on this team does he get his $8-million AAV yesterday? Sure he does. But he's a winger 2nd on the winger depth chart and 4th on the superstar depth chart. I'm guessing they wait him out 'till he comes down to $6.5. Or the bridge. I honestly have no idea at this point.

I haven't been active here on tmlfans since probably the 07-08 season.   Had to remake my account because I had completely forgotten all my information.    Reading through this entire thread,  I feel all the feels! all of them!

Welcome back. We're... having fun.

We have the NHL's top-3 superstar just entering his prime and arguably three in the top-15. Leafs have never had that post-1967. People say hysteria. After years of desolation I think we're entitled to a little :D

I wouldn't worry about Gardiner's money. He will be getting it from some other team.

Yeah, the cap has shrunk the pool of cash available for the league's middle-class. The superstars and stars get their fat pay-days and the scrubs, role-players and rookie ELC's get their minimum. But I'm sure if a lot of guys on a lot of clubs if they went on the open market tomorrow would be priced out of range for their respective teams because of over-payment. For example, if Naz at $4.5 goes to market someone gives him six, Freddy at $5 someone gives him more and Rielly if you put him on the market would get something like $7.5. That's like $8-million for three middle class players right there. I mean, Chicago started losing guys AFTER their first Cup, we'll start losing guys well before that. JVR and Bozie last year, Gards the next.

All the chatter isn't necessarily about Nylander et al per se. A lot of it blends into general cap discussion.
