This is an old-ish note about Rielly and the Leafs

The Leafs and Rielly’s camp, led by Barry, had a nice season-exit chat, I hear, but the real conversation is going to wait. My sense is while the Leafs absolutely want to try and extend Rielly this offseason — he’s got one year left on his deal — that negotiation is going to wait until August after the July fireworks are done. Which will give Leafs management a better idea after they’ve made other moves, and seen the NHL landscape, to know what they can do with Rielly.

But it’s always going to come down to one thing: Yes, Rielly loves being a Maple Leaf and would take a bit less to remain one. But the dollar figures have to make sense. He’s earning $5 million a year. He’s worth at least the $6.5 million AAV Torey Krug got in St. Louis last fall, if not more, depending on term.

Kyle Dubas seemed much more at ease discussing Zach Hyman and Frederik Andersen play out their deals before free agency when I asked him about it on a season-ending media call. It was clear, however, Dubas wasn’t that comfortable doing that this time with Rielly. Either he’s signed this summer, or there’s probably a trade. Personally, I think the Leafs find a way to extend Rielly.

Y'all saw the defense FA market last week. It just got extremely stupid.

Pardon my naivety here - but what is that? Parody? Something Eichel actually posted?

It's parodying posts from the AmItheAsshole subreddit. If you're familiar with that particular corner of the internet, it's kinda funny.

The spelling is too good though.

If they shift 250k from year 3 to year 2, I believe it works.

Yeah the article says that's exactly what they did to fix it.

So my 10 minute spread sheet could have saved them embarrassment.

@SeattleKraken, hire this man (if he wants to be involved in this level of organizational ineptitude); or maybe just buy his spreadsheet

Lol, oh man...

What an excellent prank tweet; Deebo will remind us this is a fake account, but this is honestly art.

Sorry to hear that, Bullfrog :/ the infrastructure for assisting people with the breadth and scope of mental illnesses is really not there yet.

Are you working at the moment? A lot of organizations have added Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) to their extended healthcare benefits portfolios.

Perhaps I don't know all the facts, but are people actually attacking the victim as Laraque claims? i.e. are people (e.g. the Canadiens or Mailloux) claiming that she shouldn't have put herself in that situation? That she should have known better? I understand that there will be jackasses saying that, but I haven't heard the PR team or others doing that or encouraging it.

Secondly, has he been convicted of a crime? (and yes, of course, I'm siding with and believing the victim.) But I'm just asking, factually, is he a sex offender? Speaking of which, while I am not in any way downplaying the seriousness of what he's done, I think we do need to put things in context. He didn't sexually assault or rape anyone. He was either 17 or 18 and likely didn't think of the consequences of what he did. He's harmed this young woman, but is there not a chance for redemption while still respecting the victim?

Non-consensually sharing private photos is often done as "revenge porn." That is, to harm someone, to extort them, and so on. It sounds like he just shared them with his buddies; like he was showing off. Still, a terrible (and illegal) thing to do, but not a malicious act. But again, I don't know all the facts.

Have you read the articles linked at the beginning of the thread? Because most of your questions are answered there.
