I don't know how to post one of them tweets but here is this:

Im thrilled to be starting a new chapter of my career and life in Toronto with the @MapleLeafs. I feel very fortunate to come join a team with a great young core and play where I grew up learning and loving the game. I cant wait to get started!

Wow.  I mean, I was arguing this angle but it's totally why he decided.  Wow.

I think thats a contributing factor but the real reason should be that the Leafs have the longest runway for contention of the 6.

Great cap hit. Shocking really.

And announced by Leafs PR. That's pretty unusual, no?

$11m is really great. The can probably keep everyone other than Gardiner.

7x11?   Seriously?  Leaving 14 on the table with Lou and 7x13 with SJ?  It's the *real* reason.

OK, he's been a Leaf for a full 15 minutes now.  Let's start stirring the pot:

Is this Matthews' team, or Tavares'?

So I go:

Hyman-Matthews-Nylander
Marleau-Tavares-Marner
Johnsson-Kadri-Brown/Kapanen

It's Canada's team, ZBBM. Canada's team.
