Is Shattenkirk worth 11 million per season for the next two years?  No.  But for the Leafs, flush with cap space starting next year, its a great fit.

No, even for the Leafs, it's a bad fit. Regardless of your cap situation, you need to make the most efficient use of the dollars you're spending. A $3M overpayment on any player is a bad fit for everyone.

I like the idea of getting a top D without giving up assets, but it's pretty safe to say you'd be paying the guy big money for his past history, not upcoming potential play. This is a New York Rangers kind of deal that I'd prefer the leafs stay out of.

Did I miss something?  Where did this $11m number come from?

I think it's a hypothetical number being used to illustrate that not every player can strictly be judged on a performance/cap hit scale.

I thought it came from the slightly ridiculous thought that shattenkirk would come to toronto on a 2 year deal with a huge cap hit because he'd still be 30 and able to sign a long term deal when its done and the leafs would have to resign marner and matthews so would need the cap space then.

There was a rumour from saravelli from tsn to this effect, but no 28 year old player is going to say no to a 7 year 50 million dollar deal, even for a 2 year 20+ million dollar deal.  It would be different if he was quoted as saying he'd be interested but to this point its just been media speculation so has no basis...at least to me.

How Benn didn't get a penalty on that play is beyond me. He dropped his gloves and threw a player to the ice. Pretty sure that's the definition of 4 minute minor.

In the olden days, this would have elicited a mini on-ice brawl.  The Leafs players would have gone to the aid of their teammate a bit faster.
