QuoteWith Ryan Reaves turning down Minnesota, all eyes are on Toronto. They are believed to be ready to pitch Bertuzzi (a very hot commodity) and at least one defenceman, although all of this will take some gymnastics. Auston Matthews won't be signed by July 1, but every expectation is he will by the start of the season. The number is going to look big when it's signed, but will shrink as the cap grows. William Nylander won't be done Saturday either, but everyone is trying to remain calm and not overreact.

I don't know how I feel about all this. If we can get Bertuzzi do we think it'll be at a more reasonable for services rendered cap hit?

How much does Schenn want? Seems crazy to let him walk go. I guess we'll eventually see how much he gets paid this year. He absolutely shocked me in the playoffs with defensive play not just physical play. I suppose he just might not want to play in Toronto.
Upon the wicked He will rain Jerseys; blue and white and burning waffles will be the portion of their cup.

He's supposedly looking for around $2mx3

I would sign him for that. A depth guy or bought out later.

The cap in the NHL really is a mess right now. It's the only thing anyone talks about. I am curious to see if any goalies get paid.

I wouldn't sign any contract that's a highly likelihood for a buyout before it even starts.

Very moderately surprised they didn't qualify any of those defencemen. The Leafs only have 3 defencemen signed in the organization past the 6 NHLers. Guess they'll be shopping for some new Marlies.

I'd give Schenn more money on a shorter term - say 2.5 on a 2yr. If they're going to throw money at an absolute plug like Reaves, why not spend a bit on an actually useful player that brings some back-end toughness?

Schenn to Nashville 3 years AAV $2.75!!

Good for Luke but glad Leafs didn't bite
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Yeah, that's too steep. Baffling overpay for Nashville. You bought out duchene to make these kind of deals?

lamajama

Saying ROR to Nashville. Too bad. I really like him in TO.
