Leafs sign Ondřej Kaše [1-year, $1.25mil AAV]

<< < (2/3) > >>

Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate:
The MLHS analysis, which I find tends toward being as absolutely charitable as possible, leads me to think they overpaid.  According to them, this guy has had 5 documented concussions at the age of 25 + other injuries.  Not very reassuring.

But also not surprising.  Dubas seems to overpay a bit on the low-end guys.  In this case, by +$400k, according to the article.  That stuff adds up.

herman:
This is an overpay? Relative to the other signings you saw this week?

L K:
If he can avoid injury I think this could be a steal for the Leafs this year.  But for all of our financial advantages concussions aren't really something we can just make not happen. I hope this works out.

I do hope we find a way to add someone a little more reliable on a cheap deal (whether its a discount for Tatar or Ritchie or otherwise)

EDIT: I guess it's Ritchie...2 years x 2.5M

Is not an overpayment and another low risk contact. Hope he can stay healthy.

Can't we shove him on LTIR if it's an issue?
