I don't think its bonus related.  As Shanny said, they didn't get stupid overnight.

There could be some offers they're sifting through for his rights, for all we know.

I imagine that when they have determined that keeping him is ultimately, without a hint of a doubt, the best option for their future, they will offer him his appropriate contract, bonuses and all.

I'd be more worried if this WASN'T bonus related and instead because of the reasons you suggested.

Note: I'm not actually worried.

Edmonton just signed Puljujarvi, so not worried about the Matthews thing at all. It will be worked out.

Is anyone actually worried?

Matthews being the only guy in the Top 4 not to sign is a big worry.  I have lost several patches of hair and I wake up feeling nauseated in the morning.

Seriously, you guys might not want to trip over yourselves in a rush to defend everything the team does and figure out what a joke is.

Are you sure you're not pregnant?

He's a doctor. You'd think he'd know.

Also, that still doesn't make sense. It's not like you can't trade him if he's signed.

It certainly would concern me in the sense of stupid rules like facial hair (you can take my goatee from my cold head face) and that Lou brings some things that seem a lot less progressive to a group that really got me excited about being at the top if not ahead of the curve.  If we are going to penny pinch about bonuses that the majority of top prospects still don't hit, it just seems like petty nonsense.  I'm not worried that we won't sign him, more mild annoyance that something simple could potentially be held up because of silly Lou logic.

There is also that entire side of things where maybe they just sat down to sign the deal because Matthews isn't in a rush to do it, the Leafs are fussed about taking their time and it's something that is inevitable so who really cares.  Maybe they want to make dumb people freak out a bit.

Yeah, I'm not really concerned about the Matthews thing. I do however love taking shots at Lamoriello and am mildly concerned that a team that used to say and do things that made me think they were really smart just about daily has gone a long time without that and it's not at all hard to pinpoint when it changed.

Honestly, while I do like some of the experience that Lou can bring to the table, losing out on the Dubas lecture series is probably the worst thing that has happened in Leaf-dom in the last year.

There's been a lot of good, smart moves made since Lou became GM.  The vast majority I'd say.

You are only saying that because you went to Lou's pool party and drank that red kool-aid.

To me there's a gap between a hockey move striking me as being on-balance good and a team doing something that really makes me think they're smart.

As I said elsewhere here, they aren't signing Jimmy Vesey without max performance bonuses so
if Lou is being Lou for Matthews, goodbye Jimmy.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
