Get fired and then get a raise. Nice work if you can get it.

I agree that I can only see Marner headed for free agency. About the only leverage the Leafs have is being able to give him an 8 year deal in either keeping him or sign and trade, but I reckon he will go the Matthews route of shorter term and sign for 3-4 years on the open market at a rate the Leafs won't match and then a big big contract aged 30-31. So that leverage won't apply.

Wonder if this could turn ugly at games this season if/when he refuses to waive. He's already a target on social media. That's bound to transfer into the arena too at some point.

Quote from: Arn on May 17, 2024, 02:39:13 PMSo if it is Berube, can we get O'Reilly back in the Marner/Sarros trade?

In hindsight (or without it really), not being able to get ROR extended hurt the team very badly. Especially with how well he played for the Preds this season.

His style suggests he might break down quickly, so there's a risk to it. But he'd have been ideal.

Still might...

No, because we're getting Roman Josi thrown in instead.

Marner, Liljegren for O'Reilly, Saros and Josi 👍🏼

Nashville won't accept that because it doesn't include Antropov and a 2nd round pick.

Marner with extension to the Ducks on July 1 for McTavish, Gibson with $1m retained and 2nd/3rd pick or similar prospect.

Leafs get a good young centre and a goalie albeit with higher than ideal cap despite retention - but the sort of salary dump that may be needed, a potential 2C and future trade bait. Marner gets long term dough, sunshine, less media scrutiny and the chance to be a leader on a good young team so he waives the NTC.

Leafs then sign Montour to a 6 x $7m contract.

If we trade Marner with an extension for Saros then I'd defintely want Saros coming with an extension too, as well as some other pieces.

It's just Pagnotta, but not the first time we've heard components of this

QuoteI have a hard time believing Tavares will waive his no-movement clause, but I'm not convinced that is the same case for Marner. Speaking with those close to his camp, the belief is he would, and should, consider alternative options if the Leafs seek a trade. And no, the Leafs are not going to move him for a package surrounded by future assets. If they go down this road, and teams have already poked around, it's a talent-for-talent swap.

Nashville is the destination posited (Juuse Saros in part of the return). Funny if Ryan O'Reilly comes right back in the deal.

I'd dig a trade involving Saros.

Are Anaheim a bit too far back in their rebuild to be a trading partner?

Quote from: Zee on May 09, 2024, 02:16:11 PMFirst question for Treliving, why was one of your first actions as GM giving a 2 year extension to the coach only to relieve him of his duty 8 months later before the extension even kicks in?

I mean, that one is easy - didn't want him to be a lameduck coach this season. Two year is what it really take for that kind of status to disappear instead of just kicking the can a little down the road.

Not wanting to nitpick here, but why not a one year extension, other than MLSE can afford to pay off two if necessary? A one year extension still gave two years to see how things panned out.

Guessing coaching change this summer and Shanahan out in 12 months if that doesn't fix things.

Quote from: Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington on May 06, 2024, 12:47:03 PMI guess I am looking at it in a basic way with someone like Brind'Amour available. But I guess if he appealed they could still be reaching out to him given his contract status with a view to a future agreement (unless it is presently too early and could be considered tampering).

Until Carolina is eliminated, Brind'Amour is not available. He's under contract until July 1, officially, so, any discussions with him that Carolina doesn't say yes to - and they wouldn't while the team is still playing - would be tampering, yes.

Good point. Given the negotiation position has become public I'd completely disregarded the fact that Carolina's season is still in progress.

Quote from: Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington on May 06, 2024, 12:18:05 PMAs far as coaching changes go, was hoping they would fire Keefe and then management face the music rather than Keefe today and senior management on Thursday. Does the fact that they have let him face the media mean change could be less likely? Why not just put him out of his misery now?

Nah. They were never going to turn around and fire him this quickly after a playoff loss. He was always going to be be around for locker clean out/media stuff right after elimination. Unless there's an available candidate out there they feel they need to move on quickly, there's no need to rush things. The coach of an eliminated team doesn't have a ton to do over the next few weeks, and they probably still consider his post mortem insights to have some value and they also wanted the focus of the media to be on the players and their perspectives on the series with the Bruins instead of being pushed on topics around Keefe's dismissal.

Give it a few weeks. If he's not fire leading up to the draft, then there's something to read into.

The fact that teammates are rallying around Marner is telling.

Quote from: Arn on May 05, 2024, 04:34:57 PMI would like to see Domi get some kind of longer term deal at the right price.

Trade Marner for Hellebuyck.

I was up for this (with extension in place) last year. No chance Marner waives for Winnipeg though.

And there's me calling him Ullman instead of Ullmark
