Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Contracts for the Big-3

After the elite guys and their contracts it seems that teams can have a couple of guys around $5-million, but not a bunch. We already have Andersen, Rielly and Kadri at superb deals in that range. Gardiner is up next year. The better deals the elite guys are on the more of these support guys you can have. That's a huge reason to try and get them on a good AAV. If the superstars take up 45% of your cap...

Mo with 10 points. Him, Tavares, Auston and Mitch are gonna be feasting with each other all year long :D So many can shoot and pass. Pass or shoot.

Happy Kap got moved up and is making the most of the contract dispute :P Good for him. Had to catch the last couple the day after on Game in Six. Man, JT and Auston are SCORCHIN' on the highlights. What a boon to have 1A and 1B at center for the next 7 years! A lot of great passes as well. The offensive explosion by these studs get us to the 3-1 start.

We'll get better at D/G. All teams are shaky there to start seasons now, the forwards are all chomping at the bit. Team defense is poor. Once the grind of the season hits it'll settle. Every point is valuable though. Winning the Atlantic means a much easier road than friggin' ATL2 vs ATL3. I'm sure that's the goal of the Bolts and Bruins as well.

During the 2nd intermission roundtable Friedman had a good presentation of various recent cup-winners and their top-4 cap players with the % of the cap they took up. Most of them took up 40-45% of their teams cap. (Washington - Ovechkin/Backstrom/Kuznetzov/Carlson, Pittsburgh - Crosby/Malkin/Letang/Kessel, Chicago - Toews/Kane/Keith/Seabrook, etc.)

The Leafs to be around that would be something like:
Matthews $12-million
Tavares $11-million
Marner $8.5-million
Nylander $7-million
(around 44%)

Just caught RedLeaf's Game in Six. Wow! What drama! (also that maximum sievage :P)
Great soft hand plays by JT, Auston, Mitch and Kap on the goals. Love Mo's squeal on the O/T winner.

Go Leafs Go.

It's a little bit of a tough reality that Willy is 4th on the superstar depth chart and a winger and he's going first of the Big-3. I was thinking the other day about Jonathan Drouin and the Bolts. He later said sitting out was a mistake by him. He later got a good contract but he's playing for the Montreal Canadiens.

I think the cellies were Nylander homages.

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

haha good eye!

Gamebreakers get the Dubb for us. Auston, Freddy, JT. Tough season opener at home, tend to be flat and Habs were gangbusters.

I'm glad Kyle and co. are sticking to their cap plan. If you want to be well compensated but not quite maxed out (what you'd get on the open market) in favor of being surrounded MULTIPLE OTHER superstars in perpetual contention for Stanley Cups over the next decade, then sign. If you you're agent feels you need to be MAXED out over all else, then you can't be on a team with THREE other superstars, not with the cap. It's not about "hometown discount" or "playing the emotional card". It's the simple reality of playing on a perpetual contender in a cap league.
